FLASH Entertainment has announced that one of the most legendary and iconic rock bands to ever grace the world of music, Mötley Crüe, will perform in Abu Dhabi as part of their Final Tour at the du Arena on Friday, 20th November 2015.
The first and last time Mötley Crüe will ever play in the Middle East was confirmed at a press conference in London on Tuesday, 9th June as the band made their last ever tour announcement and revealed the remaining cities on their 2-year ‘Final Tour’ cycle.
To the delight of all rock fans in the region, Abu Dhabi is the FINAL stop of thirteen new dates added in November which promise to be the ultimate farewell to their fans.
After thirty-four years performing together, Mötley Crüe will be bringing over their biggest production and pyro show to date including Nikki Sixx’s flame throwing bass and Tommy Lee’s “Crüecifly” drum coaster, as well as the “Crüesnest” where fans can sit with the band up close and personal during the grand finale of the show.
Speaking on performing in Abu Dhabi as part of their final ever tour announcement, bassist Nikki Sixx said: “We’re excited to add Abu Dhabi to The Final Tour schedule and finally get to perform in the Middle East. It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for us and a special way to say goodbye to the greatest fans in rock n roll.”
The 2015 leg of the Final Tour includes shows all across the globe. Mötley Crüe have just finished a tour of Australia and New Zealand in May for their last ever shows there after concluding their final Japan run this past February. The band are currently saying farewell to the European festival circuit with two massive performances at Novarock Festival in Austria and at Download in the UK before taking their can’t-miss show to the UAE before going to U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
Mötley Crüe first announced plans for their two year Final Tour by signing a Cessation Of Touring Agreement at a press conference in Los Angeles in January 2014, solidifying the end of their touring career for December 2015. Since the announcement the band has been touring tirelessly to say goodbye to fans around the world.
The 2014 leg of the Final Tour was one of last year’s top grossing tours, selling close to a million tickets across 72 cities and grossing more than $45 million.
“Mötley Crüe’s Final Tour has been a massive global success and a true testament to the popularity of this legendary rock band,” says Rick Franks, Live Nation’s Regional President of North American Concerts.
Going strong since bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee sparked the band in 1981, the group’s whiplash hard rock songs such as “Girls, Girls, Girls” and “Primal Scream”, and melodic power ballads like “Home Sweet Home” have gained them decades of celebrated platinum-level stardom.
Mötley Crüe’s notorious career has seen them produce nine studio albums and 30 singles with more than 50 million records sold worldwide. Known for their crowd energy and theatrical live concerts, the band is sure to bring an epic concert not to be missed.
Tickets for the show are available on Tuesday, 16th June at 12pm at www.ticketmaster.ae and all Virgin Megastore outlets across the UAE or by calling 800 TM UAE (800 86 823). #MotleyCrueUAE.
