Motley Crue Rocks Canada with 18-Date Concert Tour
Motley Crue will head out on what the band calls it’s “biggest Canadian tour ever” later this year.
The north of the border trek will kick off April 20 at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton, British Columbia, and the band will stay on the road through a May 14 date at the Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, Ontario. Other cities the band will visit include Prince George, B.C.; Dawson Creek, B.C.; Calgary; Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan; Brandon, Manitoba and Montreal.
Special guests Big Wreck will join the band for the entirety of the tour.
Motley Crue is currently on tour with KISS in Australia, where they will remain through the middle of next month. The group will take about a month off before the Canadian tour begins, and after that have three dates scheduled for the U.S.: Gilford, New Hampshire (May 17), Walker, Minnesota (July 18) and Cadott, Wisconsin (July 21). The last two are festival dates (Moondance Jam and Rock Fest, respectively), and the band hasn’t announced if they will issue more U.S. dates in the future.
Earlier this year, Nikki Sixx spoke to Loudwire about the possibility that the band will eventually retire from the road.
“We haven’t been shy that Motley Crue has been talking about somewhere in the near future doing a farewell tour,” Sixx said in the interview. “We talked about it on ‘Piers Morgan’ and different interviews. It’s not that we hate each other or we don’t work together well. I think it’s just at some point we want to leave it with some sort of a legacy that’s leaving it in a good way. I just see some bands that keep f**king beating a dead horse and I’m like, ‘Get off the horse, dude, it’s dead.’ And Motley Crue is really at one of our highest points we’ve been and I would like to see us even climb higher by seeing us finish our movie, an album and then maybe announcing a farewell tour and going out at the top. It would be a really nice look.”
