Mötley Crüe fans rejoice! But also get ready to mourn...The 1980s rockers simultaneously announced a massive North-America tour, a film adaptation of their 2002 book "The Dirt" and a country tribute album, along with their retirement. Wowza.

Seasoned music fans are used to riding this emotional roller coaster. By now, many of you know what it's like to hear your favorite band is retiring, go out and buy an expensive "farewell" tour ticket, and see their "final show"... only to watch them come out of retirement a couple years later. (NIN, anyone?) In fact this happens so frequently that you can't blame us for being skeptical when we read headlines like this one.

Singer Vince Neil want us to take their retirement seriously, however, and he recently told press, "We don't want to be one of those bands where one guy is left. We wanted to go out with the four founding members and go out on top." Additionally, they signed a legally binding agreement forbidding any of them from touring under the name Mötley Crüe individually.

What do you think, SodaHeads? Is this talk of retirement a gimmick to boost ticket sales? Or this the real deal? Let me know and if you're interested in learning more about their movie and country tribute dates, check out this article.

    we can only hope...last cd i bought was decade of decadence....there comes a time when all bands should quit touring....not necessarily making music....but enough with the touring....its a younger mans game..
    when the high light of the night is walking on a treadmill while playing guitar.......its embarrasing...and that was zz topp....motley crue doesnt even compare.

    Mick Mars is sadly not gonna last much longer because of his disease.It sucks,but it's better that they end it now than keep going pretending everything's ok.

    "Additionally, they signed a legally binding agreement forbidding any of them from touring under the name Mötley Crüe individually."

    Key word individually. They'll come back together and keep touring.

    Regardless I'll still go see them (but mainly for the opening acts)

    Remember a few years back when Iron Maiden went on their 'farewell' tour?
    Guess what?... they never retired.

    Neither will these guys.
    Give it a few years, they'll get board, then they'll be back.
    That's always how it happens.

    This is unfortunate, but they've produced some great music that will be listened to for years to come!

    I believe they know their time as a band in music is over. They probably want to move on.
  • Dori 2014/01/31 13:44:53
    Didn't know they were still around.
  • Betty 2014/01/31 12:12:42
    They should.
  • Dori Betty 2014/01/31 13:50:09
    I agree, but then they'll just keep coming back with the "come back" tour and the "reunion" tours as most of them do ad nauseam.
  • Betty Dori 2014/01/31 20:20:57
    Isn't it because we let them. Some of us are lost in space LOL. Same old same old.
  • James 2014/01/31 06:54:58
    They can't make alimony and child support payments if they stop working.
  • Katt James 2014/02/10 06:20:32
    they all have side projects. Tommy is a DJ, Nikki has got another band "Sixx:A.M." and a radio show Sixx Sence, Vince has his own name band and Mick is going with the flow
  • James Katt 2014/02/10 06:27:08
    Those won't make alimony or child support payments. They were all too busy with their music to hire top notch divorce attorneys and got taken to the cleaners over and over.
  • Katt James 2014/02/10 06:30:14
    nikki also has 2 NYT Best sellers out. Tommy has 2 albums out. They can do it. Always have been able to
  • James Katt 2014/02/10 06:43:51
    Yes, but new children keep popping up all the time and it seems like they are coming out of the woodwork.

  • Jdogg 2014/01/31 06:13:15
    I have heard this more than a few times from other music groups over the years, When there bank accounts get low, they will do another album and tour, And no one will remember they did this to begin with.

    They're awesome, but I guess it's time to retire the band now. They really have good numbers out there. Hopefully they make a huge exploder of a tour. If it's their last one, they must pull out all the stops, all the techniques, and all the win.

    Apparently, you were still swimming in your daddy's balls when I was living through the 80's speed-metal scene. It was highly Satanic. They didn't even attempt to hide it.
    Don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about. I was there.

    Just a publicity stunt to drum up new interest.
  • Dori Pistol ... 2014/01/31 13:46:47
    Well I guess. I had no idea they were still around.
  • Half-breed 2014/01/31 03:23:43
    Never liked them. Still don't.
