Mötley Crüe has confirmed that they are reuniting. The rumor, that had been reported for several days, was confirmed by the band today (Nov. 18). And while the announcement didn’t confirm their specific plans, it’s understood that the band is planning a massive tour with Def Leppard and Poison. Tickets will be available here.

The statement reads: Almost 6 years after signing a Cessation of Touring agreement, the contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together. Following the huge success of their Netflix biopic The Dirt, Mötley Crüe has seen a massive surge in new audience. And the band best known for breaking the rules has destroyed their cessation of touring contract in true Mötley Crüe-fashion, by literally blowing it up.

After 35 years together on stage, and 30 years since the release of Dr. Feelgood, the members of Mötley Crüe parted ways without speaking to each other after their final show on December 31, 2015. Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars and Tommy Lee didn’t come together again until 2018 to participate in the making of The Dirt movie, which unexpectedly brought them closer together again including seeing them head back into the recording studio after having gone in their own directions for several years. The fuse was lit.

“Since playing Tommy Lee in The Dirt, so many of my fans have said how they wish they could’ve seen the real Mötley Crüe play live,” said Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly). “I never thought I would see the day when this would become a reality. But the fans spoke and Mötley Crüe listened!”

The Dirt currently has an audience score of 95% on Rotten Tomatoes.

    Wow, what a not-a-surprise! Did anyone actually believe that Vince, Nickki & Co would actually cease operation? What would anyone but Nickki do without tour income, since he wrote most of the songs? Not news….
