DESTRUCTION frontman Schmier has slammed MÖTLEY CRÜE for coming out of retirement “to fool their poor fans again.”

Schmier wrote on Facebook: “So the the next ‘farewell-tour’ band is coming back to fool their poor fans again … I am disgusted by such greed and fraud. If you charge a fortune and do a big drama farewell tour go F*CKING RETIRE FOR REAL!!! But it became a business idea meanwhile to fool the people that pay your rent …sad, sad, sad!”

A newly unearthed video clip, of 2014’s “That Metal Show” episode showed MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars discussing the possibility of band touring again after the completion of its 2015 “final” trek.

Mars said in a video: “Let me put it this way: If that happens, I will invite the world to come for free.”

MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx said to Rolling Stone back in 2014: “Legally, we can’t play again. The only loophole is if all four band members agreed to do it, we could override our own contract. But we know that will never happen.

“There are people in this band who will refuse to ever do it again, and you’re talking to one of them. There is no amount of money that would ever make me do it again because I have such pride in how we’re ending it.”

Almost 6 years after signing a “cessation of touring” agreement, the MÖTLEY CRÜE contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together. Following the huge success of their Netflix biopic The Dirt, MÖTLEY CRÜE has seen a massive surge in new audience. And the band best known for breaking the rules has destroyed their cessation of touring contract in true MÖTLEY CRÜE fashion, by literally blowing it up.

After 35 years together on stage, and 30 years since the release of “Dr. Feelgood”, the members of MÖTLEY CRÜE parted ways without speaking to each other after their final show on December 31, 2015. Vince Neil, Nikki SixxMick Mars and Tommy Lee didn’t come together again until 2018 to participate in the making of The Dirt movie, which unexpectedly brought them closer together again including seeing them head back into the recording studio after having gone in their own directions for several years. The fuse was lit.

It was reported that MÖTLEY CRÜE will hit the road next year for a U.S. tour with POISON and DEF LEPPARD.

While specific dates and venues have yet to be announced, sources have confirmed to the magazine that the three acts will perform at stadiums around the country.
