In the midst of their final tour ever, Motely Crüe have announced a surprise date, so make sure to catch the hard rockers’ first and last Middle East gig in the UAE capital on November 20.

After thirty-four years performing together, the Girls, Girls, Girls singers will be bringing over their biggest production and pyro show to date including Nikki Sixx’s flame throwing bass and Tommy Lee’s “Crüecifly” drum coaster, as well as the “Crüesnest” where fans can sit with the band up close and personal during the grand finale of the show.

Speaking on performing in Abu Dhabi as part of their final ever tour announcement, bassist Nikki Sixx said: “We’re excited to add Abu Dhabi to The Final Tour schedule and finally get to perform in the Middle East. It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for us and a special way to say goodbye to the greatest fans in rock n roll.”

The band are currently bidding farewell to the European festival circuit with two massive performances at Novarock Festival in Austria and at Download in the UK before taking their can’t-miss show to the UAE and then moving on to the US, Canada and Mexico.

The 2014 leg of the Final Tour was one of last year’s top grossing tours, selling close to a million tickets across 72 cities and grossing more than $45 million. “Mötley Crüe’s Final Tour has been a massive global success and a true testament to the popularity of this legendary rock band,” says Rick Franks, Live Nation’s Regional President of North American Concerts.

Going strong since bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee started the band in 1981, the group’s hard rock songs such as Primal Scream, and melodic power ballads like Home Sweet Home have gained them decades of celebrated platinum-level stardom.

Mötley Crüe’s notorious career has seen them produce nine studio albums and 30 singles with more than 50 million records sold worldwide.

Tickets for the UAE show are available from today, Tuesday, June 16 at 12pm at www.ticketmaster.ae and all Virgin Megastore outlets across the UAE or by calling 800 TM UAE (800 86 823).
