Well it’s official Mötley Crüe has announced their retirement, but not before they get in one more tour.

NME is reporting that the group plan to play a 75 show arena tour from July to November of this year, and then they are done for good.

They are so serious about this retirement that the group has signed at ‘Cessation of Touring Agreement’ which says that they will never again play live dates after 2015.

“When it comes to putting together a new show we always push the envelope and that’s part of Mötley Crüe’s legacy. As far as letting on to what we’re doing, that would be like finding out what you’re getting for Christmas before you open the presents. We think in an age of too much information, we’d like to keep some surprises close to our chest until we launch the Final Tour,” said Nikki Sixx in a statement.

Band Attorney, Doug Mark explained the Cessation of Touring Agreement, “Other bands have split up over rancour or the inability of people to get along, but this is mutual among all four original members and a peaceful decision to move on to other endeavours and to confirm it with a binding agreement.”

The band plans to release a biography film after the tour called The Dirt, which is set for a 2015 release date.
