Watch: Mötley Crüe live the rock-and-roll lifestyle in first ‘The Dirt’ trailer

“Their music made them famous. Their lives made them infamous.”

If that one line doesn’t accurately describe the story of Mötley Crüe, then we may not be sure what could. On Tuesday (Feb. 19), the first official trailer for “The Dirt” was unleashed. The film —based on the band’s biography “The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band”— follows the iconic 80s act throughout their career, showcasing their highest highs and their lowest lows.

The two-and-a-half-minute clip takes the viewer through some of the biggest headline-making moments of the band’s career including Nikki Sixx’s near-fatal heroin overdose, the car crash that killed Hanoi Rock drummer Nicholas “Razzle” Dingley (and sent Vince Neil to jail), Tommy Lee’s tumultuous marriage to Heather Locklear, and Mick Mars’ battle with the bone disease ankylosing spondylitis.

Watch the first official trailer for “The Dirt” above.

The upcoming film stars Douglas Booth as Nikki Sixx, Daniel Webber as Vince Neil, rapper Machine Gun Kelly as Tommy Lee, “Game of Thrones” star Iwan Rheon as Mick Mars, “Saturday Night Live” cast member Pete Davidson as Elektra record executive Tom Zutaut, and “Breaking Bad” star David Costabile as the band’s manager Doc McGhee.

The long-in-the-works flick was directed by Jeff Tremaine of “Jackass” and “Bad Grandpa” fame.

The forthcoming flick’s soundtrack will feature four new songs from the band, one of which features Machine Gun Kelly.

“The Dirt” —and all its debauchery— finally arrives on Netflix on March 22.

Mötley Crüe Extend Final Tour, Release New Single


Mötley Crüe announced last year that they had planned to call it a day on the band, but before they did so, that they would head out on one last, epic world tour.

The members were so serious about this “final tour” that they all signed contracts promising this was the end of the 80s band.

This week, they made headlines again, but this time it was to reveal that they had decided to extend their “Final Tour.” Originally, the tour wrapped up last November, but with this new revelation, the tour will wrap up on New Year’s Eve 2015.

Like the 2014 incarnation of the tour, Alice Cooper will head out on the road with them once again.

As if the extended tour schedule wasn’t enough, the band have also released their final single, a track titled, “All Bad Things.” The lyrics for the new track aren’t lost on us though. With lyrics like “All bad things must end/ All bad things must die” it kind of makes us wonder if they’re talking about the band or something bigger.

Check out the new track below as well as the newly revised tour dates which may, or may not, be extended once more in the future.

Download Festival Unveil More Acts


The year hasn’t even ended yet, but Download Festival is already well underway with the unveiling the performers for next Summer’s event.

Previously, acts like Slipknot and A Day to Remember had been confirmed to take the stage during the weekend-long festival. Today, festival organizers have revealed a couple of more names that will head out to England to perform.

Muse, KISS, Mötley Crüe, Marilyn Manson, and Faith No More are the names that were added to the continuously growing line-up.

Muse will headline the event on Saturday night for the first time ever. Considering that the group have been around for almost 20 years, played stadiums, and call England home, it comes as a surprise that this would be their first time performing at the event.

“We’ve never played the festival before so it’s going to be really special,” the band said in a joint statement about their addition to the line up. Fittingly, the band’s upcoming new album will reportedly be released around the time of Download, at least according to frontman Matt Bellamy.

Also joining the line-up will be Faith No More. The last time they performed at Download was back in 2009, but this time will be different because they will be releasing a new album; their first in 18 years.

“The last time we played Download, the focus was on bringing back the past; now it’s all about the present and the future. Where it should be.”

Marilyn Manson has also been added to the growing list, but unlike his previous times at the festival, the shock rocker will be headlining the second stage rather than playing the main stage as a supporting act.

The final new addition to the line up will be Mötley Crüe who are currently in the middle of their “good-bye tour.” According to The Guardian, their appearance at Download will mark their last ever festival performance at a rock event before they officially call it a day on the band.

Download Festival will take place during the weekend of June 12-14, 2015 at Donington Park in England. Tickets for the event will go on sale beginning at 9 a.m. tomorrow (Nov. 20).

Mötley Crüe Officially Call it a Day in a Big Way


After much speculation about Mötley Crüe calling it a day and a massive tour happening in honor of it, it has officially been confirmed that this upcoming tour will indeed be their last one. They’re taking the tour and end of the band so serious, that all four members have signed a contract saying that this is the end.

“All bad things must come to an end” reads the official poster hanging behind a panel of people including: Rick Franks, Live Nation’s Regional President of North America Concerts; Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of Dodge Brand: and the man behind Big Machine Records, Scott Borchetta and after that band members Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars 

In a press conference which featured all four band members in the flesh as well as tour mate, Alice Cooper, information had been revealed. The tour will be made up of 72 stops which have been released and can be seen below. Pre-sales for those in their fan club and VIPs are scheduled to begin tomorrow, Wednesday January 29th while general sales will begin on Friday, January 31st on their website.

Reportedly, tickets will be priced so that the final tour can be as inclusive as possible and was a unanimous decision on everyone’s part.

But the tour isn’t the only thing happening to commemorate the announcement. According to Borchetta, his label will be putting out a tribute album of Mötley Crüe covers all performed by Big Machine artists such as Florida Georgia Line, The Eli Young Band, Leann Rimes and more. Borchetta was asked if there might be a Taylor Swift cover of “Dr, Feelgood,” but he said very unlikely.

Motley Crue’s “Farewell” Tour Ad Leaks


Motley Crue released an image last week teasing fans that something big was on its way, but what, they hadn’t confirmed. Due to the nature of the picture, it seemed to hint that it might be a tour and now, it looks like the assumptions might have been right.

For a while now, the iconic metal band have had some disagreements and even some talk that they would be calling it a day in 2014 was starting to float around the internet. The band had not commented about the potential split up rumors, but they did announce that come 3 p.m. on Tuesday, January 28th, the band will “make the biggest announcement of their career” via their website.

Thanks to a tweet from Eddie Trunk, co-host of VH1 Classic’s That Metal Show, a flyer has surfaced which reveals that Alice Cooper will be the supporting act for Motley Crue’s farewell tour, which, if it’s true, they have appropriately named, “The Final Tour.”

The full image can be seen below:


As of now, there has been no confirmations or denials about the tour which probably will not happen until that press conference. No tour dates or locations have been leaked, but in an interview with Billboard last year, frontman Vince Neil did say that the tour would probably begin in the Summer and extend all the way in 2015 meaning, there will definitely be some international dates in the mix.
