Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx has been speaking to Rolling Stone about the band's farewell tour plans. Sixx notes that he wants the band's farewell shows to be a celebration of their musical past:
"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," explained Sixx. "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. When that day comes, that's what I want: one big f--king huge party to celebrate what we've done, all the good, all the bad, all the in-between. There it is, one big party, one final bow. It's gonna be f--king rad, but we're not there yet. Right now, we got three shows left in Vegas and then we're gonna start looking forward to when we tour next."
The bassist also noted that the band, while committed to the idea of retiring, isn’t actively planning when that retirement will take place:
"We don't know right now. We said as brothers and a band, that's something we plan on doing sometime in the future, but we're not there yet, so we don't have any idea when. We’re not sitting down right now planning on that."
