Mötley Crüe plans stop at Allentown Fair during retirement tour

February 4, 2014 by  

Heavy metal band Mötley Crüe has announced that they’re calling it quits after 33 years.

The band is planning one final farewell tour before throwing in the towel and will make a stop at the Great Allentown Fair this summer. They last made an appearance at the Fair in 2005.

The band announced their retirement in an unusual way, going farther than most bands do. Each member of the band signed a contract stating that they would not perform together again. Nikki Sixx, the band’s bassist, noted that many rock groups go on for too long and become embarrassing. By quitting now, Mötley Crüe hopes to avoid that fate.

The Great Allentown Fair can use poster printing to advertise one of the group’s final performances. At the fair, Mötley Crüe will be performing with another long-time rocker, Alice Cooper. It will be the first time the two acts have performed together.

While Mötley Crüe might be no more after this summer, each member of the band plans to continue his career in music.

Although the concert isn’t until August 27, tickets for the show went on sale at 10:00 am on January 31. Tickets are available at the fair’s box office and online through Ticketmaster. Admission ranges from $45 for general admission seating to $90 for seats on the track by the stage extension.
