October 2, 2016, 5:08 pm

For one night only on Thursday 13th October, selected cinemas across the UK and Europe, South America, Australia and Japan will be screening “Motley Crue: The End” – a film documenting the legendary band’s final ever show, and truly marking “The End” for Motley fans all over the world.

On 31st December 2015, rock icons Motley Crue completed their 35-year touring career as a band. The spectacular final concert was held at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles, CA, just 10 miles from the Sunset Strip where the band’s infamous and decadent career first launched. The band thrilled the sold-out arena with performances of mega-hits such as “Kickstart My Heart,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Home Sweet Home” and “Dr. Feelgood.”

While not everyone was able to witness their Final Show live, Motley Crue fans can catch all the action when MusicScreen, Live Alliance, Eagle Rock Entertainment and Tenth Street Entertainment present “Motley Crue: The End” in selected cinemas worldwide on Thursday 13th October 2016. In addition to the epic concert footage, cinema audiences will be treated to behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s last few shows.

In January 2014, Motley Crue held a press conference announcing their Final Tour, complete with a “cessation of touring” agreement signed by all members prohibiting any and all future live engagements under the Motley Crue name. Motley Crue’s two-year concert trek saw the band — Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitars), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums) — perform across five continents (North America, South America, Europe, Australia and Asia) for a total of more than 164 shows in 72 markets grossing over $100 million.

Known for their over-the-top production, Motley Crue did not disappoint for their last ever show on New Year’s Eve. Huge, cutting-edge pyro stunts included Nikki Sixx’s bass guitar spitting fire over 30 ft. into the air, while Tommy Lee’s “Cruecifly” drum roller coaster soared over crowds. Lead singer Vince Neil delivered an emotional “Thank you” speech to the audience, while the band supplied next-level, high-octane fuelled energy, ringing in the New Year on stage with thousands of balloons raining down on the crowd. The grand finale of the show included a blow-out performance of their hit single, “Kickstart My Heart” with Nikki Sixx and Vince Neil floating above the audience in far-reaching “cherry-pickers.” Leaving fans in tears, the show concluded with an emotional encore rendition of “Home Sweet Home” from the second stage riser in the center of the audience.

“Motley Crue: The End” was produced and distributed by Live Alliance and Eagle Rock Entertainment. Christian Lamb directed the concert portion. Jeff Tremaine, creator of the “Jackass” series, directed the documentary segment.
