Motley Crue's Final Tour Is About Integrity, Manager Explains
Motley Crue manager Chris Nilsson recently spoke with Pollstar (via Blabbermouth) about the band’s upcoming retirement. As Nilsson reported, his reaction to the decision was one of support:

"It was a group decision. They had been talking about it for some time. To be honest, I can't even tell you how long. I respect their decision, I support their decision. Their reasons for their decision are good reasons. They've always been a band with integrity. I think maintaining their integrity is important to them, as a group and their legacy. It was one of those things where they had the full support of us as managers."

He also noted that Motley Crue's decision to retire was a positive one:

"This band has done things differently. Everything that they do is special. Their decision wasn't based on internal strife. Their decision was based on something positive, which is they want to preserve the legacy of Motley Crue. … They collectively think it's time to do this. It's not the decision of one member or two members. It's a mutual decision. … I certainly think this is a spectacular way to end a 33-year career. I think it's spectacular in the sense that because it's a mutual decision and because they are at the top of their game, they can in the next two years create something for the fans that's worthy of the fans' dollars."
