Glam metal icons Motley Crue have officially announced a special January 28 event under the "RIP: All Bad Things Must Come to an End" banner.
Scheduled to take place in Los Angeles, the press conference will likely see the band announcing details of their final album and farewell tour, which is expected to last for a couple of years, Blabbermouth reports.
Singer Vince Neil previously hinted that the band's last trek might kick off as early as May 2014, while bassist Nikki Sixx pointed out several times that this truly marks the end of the road.
"The most important thing about a farewell tour is that the band doesn't lie to the fans, and the band doesn't tour and then come back years later," Sixx told Rolling Stone back in October. "That's what's important for us, planning what's the right time to go out."
The bassist explained further, "Someone said to me the other day, 'Won't you be sad?' I go, 'No, I'd be sad if we were playing half-full theaters and only two band members were in the band.' That would be sad. Sad is not taking your final bow in Los Angeles all together as four brothers. I talked to a friend the other day and they were talking about a friend of theirs who passed away. And after the funeral, they had this huge party and everybody was celebrating, drinking and telling stories about this guy and how fun he was and how much joy he gave everybody in life. That's how I feel about Motley Crue."
