Mötley Crüe Returns to San Antonio for Final Show at Alamodome
Tour To Commemorate 34 Years of Mötley Crüe
Iconic rock band Mötley Crüe announced today their final tour stop at the Alamodome on Sunday, September 6, 2015. Their last North American Tour will mark the end of their touring career and will conclude their two year Final Tour cycle at the end of 2015.
Mötley Crüe first announced plans for their 2-year Final Tour by signing a Cessation OfTouring Agreement at a press conference in Los Angeles in January 2014, solidifying the end of their Final Tour at the end of 2015.
The 2014 leg of the Final Tour was one of last year’s top grossing tours, selling close to amillion tickets across 72 cities and grossing more than $45 million. “Mötley Crüe’s Final Tour has been a massive global success and a true testament to the popularity of this legendary rock band,” says Rick Franks, Live Nation’s Regional President of North American Concerts. “New Year’s Eve 2015 will mark the end of an era in rock history but there’s no doubt that Mötley Crüe’s music will influence generations of artists for years to come.”
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 Mötley Crüe will say farewell to the European Festival circuit with 3 massive performances at Download (UK), Sweden Rock (Sweden) and Novarock (Austria) Festivals before taking their can’t-miss show back to the U.S., Canada, and Mexico this summer for 34 final North American shows due to tremendous fan demand.
