Motley Crue is wrapping up their Farewell Tour in Los Angeles, and it looks like the guys are going out with a bang performing two shows at the Staples Center.
The Las Vegas Sun reports that the band has booked the L.A. arena for December 30th and 31st, 2015 - shows that will be preceded by a gig at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Vegas. Of course, nothing is confirmed, and this tidbit is buried in a look at singer Vince Neil's Arena Football League team, the Las Vegas Outlaws, and includes a few words from Neil hinting that the band may take a smaller stage for one last show after they exit the Staples Center.
"I hope we can have our final after-party at the Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip where we began 34 years ago if it hasn't been torn down by then," said Neil. "It would be a fitting place to celebrate the beginning and the end."
That echoes what Neil expressed last fall, when he told the Sun, "We wanted to end in 2016 in Los Angeles where we started. After New Year's, we'll do three nights at one of the arenas in L.A., and then do a special show at the Whisky a Go Go on our 35th anniversary."
"There's talk of a couple of nights at Staples or the Forum," added drummer Tommy Lee. "Afterwards, there might be a late show at the Whisky, where we really started this s***. I mean, f***, we all lived around the corner from that piece-of-s*** club. It would real nice to finish off there."
The band's 'Final Tour' picks up again in February, when they head to Japan for a short run of shows; in April, bassist Nikki Sixx will use the downtime between tour legs to head out on a headlining gig with his group Sixx:A.M.
