VInce Neil: We never said we were breaking up

Vince Neil says Motley Crue could still work together after their Final Tour comes to an end.

The band’s touring career will wrap up on New Year’s Eve at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, but the frontman insists they never said they are breaking up.

He tells the Oakland Press: “We’ve never said we were breaking up – we just said we’re not touring anymore. We’re gonna be definitely making more music together for different projects and stuff. But right now we’re really just focused on doing these shows this year and finishing with a bang.”

Neil adds that it won’t hit him hard until the week of the very last gig. He says: “It’s not really gonna hit anybody really hard until that last week, when we’re really saying goodbye in Los Angeles.

“Saying goodbye in Tokyo after a couple nights there, it was like, ‘Wow, I’m never gonna be back on this stage doing this with Motley again.’ There’s a finality there. Or Madison Square Garden, I got a little choked up because I know I’m not gonna play Madison Square Garden with Motley Crue again.”
