Nikki Sixx Reveals How Much Longer He Wants Mötley Crüe To Tour

Mötley Crüe got back on the road for “The World Tour” alongside co-headliners Def Leppard recently. Guitarist John 5 has joined the band replacing an ailing Mick Mars, and according to bassist Nikki Sixx, the Crüe are firing on all cylinders. 

Sixx also said he doesn’t see “The World Tour” as a one-off touring farewell for the band. 

“Tommy [Lee] just had his 60th-birthday party [last October] down in Mexico, and he invited a small group of his very good friends, Sixx told Brazil’s A Rádio Rock. “And I was there, and a bunch of Tommy’s cool friends. All of our wives were there. John 5 came in. And it was just cool to be able to not talk business, be in rehearsal, get on the phone, talk about the photo shoot or the video. It was just hanging out, walking on the beach. And we had some sweet conversations.”

Sixx revealed that the group has the lofty hope of reaching its 50th anniversary which would happen in eight years in 2031. 

“Me and Tommy and Vince [Neil] had this conversation,” Sixx said. “I said, I go,’ What are you guys doing for the next eight years?’ And everybody’s laughing: ‘I don’t know.’ I said, ‘Why don’t we just keep going? Let’s just take it to 50.’”

“This isn’t a final tour,” Sixx added. “What does that look like? I have no idea. I’m just telling you, you have the band saying, ‘We’re having a blast. Why stop?'”

Sixx also said the band could very well record new music in the future. “As far as new music — I think new music always comes when the band is getting along. We get along so great right now. We’ve been having the best time.”
