Just added Kansas City (among 6 other new cities) on June 23rd at Kauffman Stadium. I have to work that day, anyway.

I saw that as well and was surprised how many physical ailments he went through over the years that required either surgery or some type of rehabilitation. I suppose performing for 30 years takes its physical toll along the way.

I read that 7 shows have already sold out. I have to admit I am shocked that it is doing this well so quickly. With fees two OK tickets would cost about $400+.

Last time I've checked from the Motley Crie Facebook page they are still doing their Stadium tour that was postponed because of Covid but Mick Mars has officially retired from touring with the band due to his health. https://variety.com/2022/music/news/...ng-1235415269/

And they have confirmed that John 5 has joined Motley Crue to finish touring. Mike Riggs is with Rob Zombie finishing that tour.

I'm surprised Mick could hold out for as long as he did. Last time I saw them, I think it was back in '05, on the Carnival of Sins tour, he looked really small and frail, and barely moved.

The bone disease he has sounds horrific. All back pain sucks, but when your vertebrae are fusing together...

One of my brothers has AS and I have been tested and told that I carry the gene but no signs of it. Pretty rough disease to live with.

Interesting that in Mick Mars' statement, he's retiring from touring... but Motley Crue's statement, he's retired from the band.


Mick's statement
Mick Mars, co-founder and lead guitarist of the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe for the past 41 years, has announced today that due to his ongoing painful struggle with Ankylosing Spondylitis (A.S.), he will no longer be able to tour with the band. Mick will continue as a member of the band, but can no longer handle the rigors of the road. A.S. is an extremely painful and crippling degenerative disease, which affects the spine.
Crue's statement
While change is never easy, we accept Mick’s decision to retire from the band due to the challenges with his health,” they wrote on social media. “We have watched Mick manage his Ankylosing Spondylitis for decades and he has always managed it with utmost courage and grace. To say ‘enough is enough’ is the ultimate act of courage. Mick’s sound helped define Mötley Crüe from the minute he plugged in his guitar at our very first rehearsal together. The rest, as they say, is history. We’ll continue to honor his musical legacy. We will carry out Mick’s wish and continue to tour the world as planned in 2023. No doubt will it take an absolutely outstanding musician to fill Mick’s shoes so we are grateful that our good friend John 5 has agreed to come on board and join us moving forward.


There's nothing in the Crue version about this being for tours only.

Interesting...

At this point, I think touring is all they'll be doing. I don't think they'll record any new albums. Maybe a new single every now and then, which Mick could probably guest on if he wanted to.

Guy's 71 and his body has turned against him. If I were him, I'd take all of my money, make a clean break from the band, and enjoy whatever years and health I have left.
