Since Motley Crue have confirmed their reunion after literally blowing up their “Cessation of Touring Agreement,” one of the most shared quotes from the band about never touring again came from guitarist Mick Mars, who said during a 2014 appearance on That Metal Show that if the Crue toured again, “I will invite the world to come for free.”
Mars has since issued a statement via Instagram that reads, “While I was clearly joking about the free tickets that night on ‘TMS,’ I was also deeply convinced that we would never ever be touring again. I would have never expected to be facing a whole new generation of fans demanding to see us play. In fact, touring with Motley Crue comes at a weird place in time, since my solo record is almost complete after such a long time of writing and recording. But, I put our fans first. Anyways, I am eating a lot of crow and humble pie this Thanksgiving for those remarks and accept that some of you see this as me being dishonest. I said what I said and I was wrong. Peace.”
Motley Crue is expected to announce a major tour for 2020 with Def Leppard and Poison soon.
