Motley Crue's Word is Dirt With 2020 Reunion Tour
- Published on: Friday, November 22, 2019
Many artists have declared "farewell" or hit the road for "final tours", only to return again for another payday. However, NONE of them have gone to the extent of Motley Crue in letting their "respected" fans know just how "serious" they were about it.
How serious? First of all, Crue wanted to make it absolutely clear they weren't embarking on a "farewell" tour specifically because those are reserved for bands who continually "rip off" their fans by returning to the stage.
To make sure they didn't fall into this lame category, they decided to hold an elaborate press conference and sign a contract making it legally "impossible" for them to go back on their word. Well, that is...unless all 4 members agreed.
But even if everyone WAS eagerly on-board with doing "10 shows for a million a pop", their respect for the fans and PRIDE in the band name "alone would stop it". Plus, they'd have "so much egg" on their faces if they ever made such an improbable move.
Well guys, I guess the "yolks on you".
And that goes for the fans too... how many of them bought tickets to their final shows thinking it was literally the end of the band? How many fans spent thousands of dollars on expensive meet and greet packages figuring it was very last time they'd ever get such an opportunity?
Even though I'm not a "Cruehead" or diehard fan, I bought a ticket on that final tour back in 2015 thinking to myself, "hey, why not, this could be it." I can't remember why I didn't get to go but I can assure you it'll never happen again.
And, I should clarify, it's not just because lead singer, Vince Neil, makes Paul Stanley of KISS sound like Luciano Pavarotti. Seriously Neil, call Paul and see how much he charges to rent out his KISS Karaoke machine. Neil is actually the only singer I can think of who would RESTORE his dignity by singing to a track.
Aside from that, the other reason why I wouldn't spend another dime on Motley Clowns is because they have ZERO dignity or integrity and seem pretty proud of it too. Not only did they promise fans they were done and repeatedly doubled-down with ridiculous claims (free shows if they return!), but they've pretty much built their careers on obnoxious behavior, bullshit stories, exaggerations and downright lies.
Earlier this year, Nikki Sixx was questioned about a not-so-funny story from their now infamous book, "The Dirt", where he recounts a time when he "pretty much had" raped a woman along with Tommy Lee in a closet. Of course, when pressed about it, Sixx doesn't remember the story at all, even declaring he was so messed up on drugs that he shouldn't have even given those interviews for the book in the first place and indicated many of those stories were either embellished or or made up entirely.
Of course their new hit biopic on Netflix, "The Dirt", was based on stories from the book and goes even further down the rabbit hole of twisting the truth for Hollywood until what you're basically left with are just caricatures of something real.
And THIS is why the Motley Clowns are breaking their promise to the fans, because so many of them have bought into all their lies and bullshit hook, line and stinker.
In this video, I dismantle Crue and shed light on the whole farewell "business" and let you know who that label should TRULY be reserved for.
