"In the spring of '14… we'll do one more time around the world and kinda call it quits," Vince Neil says
Vince Neil says all this farewell talk surrounding Motley Crue these days "is definitely for real" -- and the group even has its exit strategy (i.e. a farewell tour) in place.
"I think we'll start the tour around May -- I'm just kind of guessing on that, but in the spring of '14, and we'll do one more time around the world and kinda call it quits," the Crue frontman tells Billboard. "It's just that time. We're going out on top. We don't want to be some band that people are like, 'Oh, they're playing a club now,' that kind of band. We still sell out arenas, have stadium stuff and things like that, so let's go out when it's a big deal."
Neil adds that guitarist Mick Mars' continuing health issues -- he suffers from ankylosing spondylitis, a form of arthritis, and has also had hip replacement surgery -- are also a factor. "Touring is tough on him, so this'll give him some time to relax."
