Motley Crue is calling it quits after a final tour ending in 2015 and, unlike many groups today, won't be coming back, the heavy metal rockers pledged.
The band revealed that the upcoming tour would be its last during a news conference in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
"We want to go out with the four founding members of Motley Crue and go out on top," said lead singer Vince Neil.
The quartet — comprising Neil, guitarist Mick Mars, bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee — even signed a cessation of touring agreement at the presser for emphasis, sitting at a table behind mock headstones for each band member.
The legal document states that the four men will not perform as Motley Crue after 2015.
"Tommy said it best recently when he said [for many groups today] a farewell tour is when a band does a farewell tour and then gets back together and does another farewell tour and breaks up and gets back together," Sixx explained.
"We decided to call this a final tour and sign a contract telling you this is real because we want to be proud of Motley Crue and we want our fans to be proud of Motley Crue for decades to come," he continued.
"We want to leave a legacy...We want to have some dignity."
The tour will begin in Grand Rapids, Mich. on July 2 and conclude its North American leg in Vancouver in November before taking the band abroad. Fellow rock veteran Alice Cooper is scheduled to tour with the group.
Formed in 1981, Motley Crue rose to fame during the 1980s and were notorious for their decadent, hard-partying lifestyle. The group has sold more than 70 million albums worldwide and their hits include Dr. Feelgood and Girls, Girls, Girls.
