Flash Entertainment has today announced that iconic rock band, Mötley Crüe, will perform in Abu Dhabi as part of their Final Tour at the du Arena on Friday, November 20th, 2015.
The first - and last - time Mötley Crüe will ever play in the Middle East was confirmed at a press conference in London recently, where the band made their last ever tour announcement and revealed the remaining cities on their two-year ‘Final Tour’ cycle. To the delight of all rock fans in the region, Abu Dhabi was announced as the final stop of thirteen new dates added in November to bid farewell to their fans.
After 34 years performing together, Mötley Crüe will be bringing their biggest production and pyro show to date with them to the region, including Nikki Sixx's flame throwing bass and Tommy Lee’s “Crüecifly” drum coaster, as well as the “Crüesnest” where fans can sit with the band up close and personal during the grand finale of the show.
Speaking about the tour, bassist Nikki Sixx said: "We're excited to add Abu Dhabi to The Final Tour schedule and finally get to perform in the Middle East. It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for us and a special way to say goodbye to the greatest fans in rock 'n' roll."
The 2015 leg of the Final Tour includes shows all across the globe - the band has just finished a tour of Australia and New Zealand this May, after taking the show to Japan this past February. The farewell continues on the European festival circuit with two massive performances at Novarock Festival in Austria and at Download in the UK before the band hit the UAE, US, Canada and Mexico.
Mötley Crüe first announced plans for their two year Final Tour by signing a Cessation Of Touring Agreement at a press conference in Los Angeles in January 2014, solidifying the end of their touring career for December 2015. Since the announcement, the band has been touring tirelessly to say goodbye to fans around the world.
The 2014 leg of the Final Tour was one of last year’s top grossing tours, selling close to a million tickets across 72 cities and grossing more than $45 million.
Since bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee formed the band in 1981, the group’s whiplash hard rock songs such as “Girls, Girls, Girls” and “Primal Scream”, and melodic power ballads like “Home Sweet Home” have gained them decades of celebrated platinum-level stardom.
Mötley Crüe’s notorious career has seen them produce nine studio albums and 30 singles with more than 50 million records sold worldwide. Known for their crowd energy and theatrical live concerts, the band promises to bring an epic concert to the UAE that's not to be missed.
Tickets for the show are available on Tuesday 16th June at 12pm via ticketmaster, at all Virgin Megastore outlets across the UAE, or by calling 800 TM UAE (800 86 823).
