Motley Crue tease farewell movie

Motley Crue have released a one-minute teaser clip for the movie recorded during their final show.

The band ended their career in Los Angeles on December 31, following a two-year world tour. A contract signed before it began makes it all-but impossible for them to reunite.

Bassist Nikki Sixx said before the show that he hoped he wouldn’t cry as they bade their farewells. In the end it was frontman Vince Neil who burst into tears – while drummer Tommy Lee’s roller coaster drumkit broke down midway through his solo, leaving him hanging upside down until he could be rescued.

The concert movie will include the entire performance, plus exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage. Its release date will be confirmed in due course.

Crue are also continuing work on the film based on their notorious book The Dirt, which is also expected this year.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
