On New Year’s Eve 2015, glam-metal legends Mötley Crüe brought their career to a close with an emotional, dazzling hometown concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Fans who weren’t able to attend the historic farewell show will now get the chance to see a new movie documenting the event at one-night-only screenings scheduled to be held Tuesday, June 14, at more than 200 theatres across the U.S.
Mötley Crüe: The End features the band performing such classic songs as “Kickstart My Heart,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Home Sweet Home” and “Dr. Feelgood” in front of a sold-out crowd.
As with the other shows throughout the group’s Final Tour, which kicked off in 2014, the L.A. concert was highlighted by a variety of spectacular elements, including pyrotechnic displays like Nikki Sixx’s bass spitting fire more than 30 feet into the air and Tommy Lee’s “Crüecifly” drum roller coaster.
The event also saw the band celebrate the New Year with fans as thousands of balloons rained down from the Staples Center rafters. As the show neared its end, the Crüe played its first hit single, “Kickstart My Heart,” while Sixx and frontman Vince Neil performed on cherry-pickers that brought them way out over the audience. Bringing the concert to a close, the band members gathered on a stage riser in the middle of the arena to play their classic ballad “Home Sweet Home.”
The movie also features behind-the-scenes footage capturing the band during its farewell world tour.
Tickets for the Mötley Crüe: The End U.S. screenings go on sale on Friday, May 13. The movie runs two hours and 10 minutes. For more information, visit FathomEvents.com.
The movie will also screen in Australia with more news to follow.
