Mick Mars Say He Was Joking About Free Motley Crue Tickets If The Band Ever Toured Again

Mick Mars said his Thanksgiving dinner will consist of “crow and humble pie” for comments he made five years ago concerning Motley Crue’s decision to stop touring.
Apparently, many fans didn’t forget that, five years ago, Mars appeared on Eddie Trunk’s That Metal Show and discussed the possibility of Motley Crue coming back after the end of what they were calling the Final Tour. “Let me put it this way,” he said. “If that happens, I will invite the world to come for free. Free.”
With the band blowing up their “Cessation of Touring Agreement” in anticipation of tour announcement last week, fans reminded Mars of his offer, which prompted a response posted on Instagram.
“While I was clearly joking about free tickets that night on TMS, I was also deeply convinced that we would never ever be touring again,” he wrote. “I would have never expected to be facing a whole new generation of fans demanding to see us play. In fact, touring with Motley Crue comes at a weird place in time, since my solo record is almost complete after such a long time of writing and recording. But I put our fans first. Anyways, I am eating a lot of crow and humble pie this Thanksgiving for those remarks and accept that some of you see this as me being dishonest. I said what I said, and I was wrong. Peace.”
