Mötley Crüe reunite, plot tour with Def Leppard and Poison for next year

In a video posted to their social channels, the band revealed their comeback by literally blowing up their ‘cessation of touring’ contract (which now feels like a publicity stunt five years in the making), citing the success of the Machine Gun Kelly helmed Netflix biopic The Dirt for reuniting. 



“Almost 6 years after signing a Cessation of Touring agreement, the contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together. Following the huge success of their Netflix biopic The Dirt, Mötley Crüe has seen a massive surge in new audience. And the band best known for breaking the rules has destroyed their cessation of touring contract in true Mötley Crüe-fashion, by literally blowing it up.


After 35 years together on stage, and 30 years since the release of Dr. Feelgood, the members of Mötley Crüe parted ways without speaking to each other after their Final Show on December 31, 2015. Vince, Nikki, Mick and Tommy didn’t come together again until 2018 to participate in the making of The Dirt movie, which unexpectedly brought them closer together again including seeing them head back into the recording studio after having gone in their own directions for several years. The fuse was lit.”



There’s also been reports that the veteran hard rockers are joining forces with Poison and Def Leppard to embark on a massive stadium tour around the US next year, which really would be a show of epic proportions. Nostalgia never fails to sell – especially when it’s accompanied with Bud Light and sweaty leather.
