80s rock legends Motley Crue to play Abu Dhabi’s Du Arena
Rock legends Motley Crue will perform in Abu Dhabi later this year in what the band have admitted will be their last ever tour.
The 80s icons will bring their The Final Tour show to Du Arena on November 20, just six weeks before they bring the curtain down on their careers with a homecoming show in Los Angeles.
The band – Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars – have sold more than 100 million records worldwide and are best loved for tracks such as Home Sweet Home, Girls Girls Girls, and Dr Feelgood.
As tickets were announced by Flash Entertainment, bass player 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.”
Organisers also confirmed can expect the sort of pyrotechnic show that has made the Crue so popular for more than three decades.
Tickets go on sale on Tuesday June 16 at midday, and will be priced from Dhs195, up to Dhs650 for Golden Circle and Dhs895 for the tree house package.
The news comes just a week after Bon Jovi announced their return to the region with a show at the same venue on October 1, seven years after their debut in the capital.
The successive announcements have set tongues wagging about the potential line-up for the Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix weekend line-up, which last year saw Armin van Buuren, Pharrell Williams and The Who entertain thousands.
