As Motley Crue are making headlines with the latest announcement of their final tour, singer Vince Neil gave a seemingly contradictory statement, noting that Crue is in fact "not breaking up."
Asked about the band's future by KDKB, Vince explained, "Here's the thing. Motley Crue's not breaking up. We're still gonna be making music. We're still [gonna be selling] merchandise and stuff like Motley Crue things."
The singer added that although a full-length album is an unlikely endeavor in the future, an occasional tune or two might pop up along the way. "We'll probably just make music - do songs for certain things," he said. "Motley Crue will still be around, we're just not gonna tour anymore. That's really kind of it."
Meanwhile, the band has signed a contract banning future tours after 2015. The Cessation of Touring Agreement will be effective starting the end of 2015 and was signed in front of global media in Los Angeles last week.
Finally, the Crue guys have addressed a hypothetical Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame reunion, admitting they'd have to think about it. "Something like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we'd have to sit down and talk about it," Neil told Loudwire, with bassist Nikki Sixx adding: "It's 'cease to tour.' I think it's going to be interesting when the next band announces a farewell tour. They're going to say, 'Well is it a farewell tour like Motley Crue? Or is it like all the other bands.'"
Check out the band's final tour dates below, more shows will be announced soon.
