Mötley Crüe couldn’t go away without saying goodbye one more time.
The hard-rock bad boys have added a Nov. 8 date at Joe Louis Arena to their “Final Tour,” promoters announced Monday morning. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, prices are TBA.
The Joe Louis announcement comes a week after the band quickly sold out its Aug. 9 concert at DTE Energy Music Theatre. Fans who snatched up tickets to that date thinking it was the band’s final area concert may rightly feel burned, but for what it’s worth, the November show is being billed in a release as the Crüe’s “final Detroit show EVER!” (What that says for the possibilities of concerts outside Detroit city limits isn’t clear.)
The band announced its plans to hit the road one last time last month. Because artists and bands have a rocky relationship with farewells, the members of the Crüe signed what was described as a legally binding agreement that prevents them from embarking on further tours after the conclusion of this one.
The Crüe’s “Final Tour” launches July 2 at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids. Alice Cooper will open, and is on the bill for the Joe Louis show as well.
