I have been a huge Mötley fan since Dr. Feelgood was released; I was 14. I got to see them for the first time in 2005 and have seen them loads of times since.
This year the band will split up for good. Much media noise has surrounded the details of their Final Tour, and today they announced their Final Show. That is in Los Angeles (naturally) on 31st December 2015.
After thirty-four years performing together, the 2015 leg of the Final Tour will see the band play Japan in February, then Australia/New Zealand in spring. In June the band will say farewell to the European Festival circuit with 3 massive performances at Download (UK) – where we will see them – ,Sweden Rock (Sweden) and Novarock (Austria) Festivals before taking their show back to the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
To co-incide with the announcement of their last show they’ve also released a new song and a career-spanning video (NSFW) to go with it. I’ve listened a few times now, and ‘All Bad Things’ is actually pretty good, even if does rip off the chorus from RHCP’s ‘Punk Rock Classic’!
Have a watch below, and do you think it rather sad that they’ve chosen to omit the fantastic Motley Crue album and John Corabi era? I certainly do.
