LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Almost 6 years after signing a cessation of touring agreement, members of the legendary metal band Mötley Crüe announced they are reuniting in time for the 30th anniversary of the release of their hit album “Dr. Feelgood.”
According to a statement from the band, the members of Mötley Crüe – Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, and Tommy Lee – hadn’t communicated with each other since going their seperate ways following the conclusion of their final show on December 31st, 2015.
However, they say they were drawn back together during the making of their Netflix biopic The Dirt, which was released to acclaim in 2018.
According to the band, the reaction of fans to the release of The Dirt, including an uptick of almost 350% in streams of their music on digital streaming platforms, provided an incentive to reunite, including a return to the studio to record new music.
In typical Mötley Crüe style, the band created a video of themselves literally blowing up the cessation of touring agreement and according to Rolling Stone, the Crüe will mark the 30th anniversary of Dr. Feelgood with a headlining stadium tour in 2020 with Poison and Def Leppard.
