Fathom Events, Eagle Rock Entertainment and 10th Street Entertainment are excited to bring “Mötley Crüe: The End” to the big screen for an incredible one-night event on Tuesday, June 14.
The bad boys of rock have celebrated a career that has seen them sell millions of albums and perform thousands of concerts. In January 2014, MÖTLEY CRÜE held a press conference announcing their final tour ever, complete with a “cessation of touring” agreement prohibiting all future live engagements. “The Final Tour” ended up being comprised of 164 concerts over two years, all ending with a hometown gig at Los Angeles’s Staples Center. This New Year’s Eve Celebration was filled with hits like “Kickstart My Heart”, “Girls Girls Girls”, “Home Sweet Home” and many more. Now, for only one night, this last ever performance event gives fans front-row access.
Known for their over-the-top production, MÖTLEY CRÜE did not disappoint on New Year’s Eve: from massive, cutting edge pyro, including Nikki Sixx’s bass guitar spitting fire over 30ft in the air, and Tommy Lee’s “Crüecifly” drum roller coaster, amongst many other spectacular elements. While the “Crüecifly” experienced a technical hiccup halfway through his drum solo, perhaps signifying the coaster too had also run its course, it didn’t derail the band from giving it their all to their devoted fans cheering them on all night through. Lead singer Vince Neil delivered an emotional, teary-eyed “thank you” speech to the audience, while the band supplied next-level, high-octane fueled energy, ringing in the New Year on stage with thousands of balloons raining down on the crowd. The band’s grand finale of the show included a blow-out performance of “Kickstart My Heart” with Nikki Sixx and Vince Neil floating above the audience in far reaching “cherry-pickers.” Leaving fans in tears, the band finished up the show with an emotional encore rendition of “Home Sweet Home” from the second stage riser in the center of the audience.
Produced and distributed by Live Alliance, Christian Lamb directed the concert portion of the film, while Jeff Tremaine, creator of the “Jackass” series, directed the documentary segment.
Following the big-screen premiere, the film will be made available on pay-per-view in all cable/satellite/digital formats, with a DVD set to be released later on.
Fans can check out a sneak peek of the film below.
In addition to the live-concert film, MÖTLEY CRÜE is planning to release a major box-set of music down the line, as well as “The Dirt” feature film based on the band’s best-selling 2001 autobiography, also to be directed by Tremaine, in the near future.
