Watch Motley Crue Blow Up No Touring Contract And Announce They’re Back

Motley Crue have made it official that they’re back. The Crüe is voiding a “no touring” contract the signed in 2015 and will hit the road with Def Leppard and Poison for a 2020 U.S. stadium tour.
To the strains of “Home Sweet Home,” Machine Gun Kelly, who starred as Tommy Lee in this year’s Crue biopic The Dirt, narrates how the band signed an “unprecedented contract” and how they continued to pick up new fans. “They knew that if they were ever to stand onstage together again, that contract would have to be destroyed,” he says. “Well, destruction has never been an issue for Motley Crue.”
And then the desk the contract sits upon is, in the words of SCTV’s Big Jim McBob and Billy Sol Hurok, “blowed up real good,” as the music switches to “Kickstart My Heart” and the rest of the room bursts into flames. The video ends with the words “Motley Crue Is Back” splashed across the screen.
“Since playing Tommy Lee in The Dirt, so many of my fans have said how they wish they could’ve seen the real Motley Crue play live,” Machine Gun Kelly said in a press release. “I never thought I would see the day when this would become a reality. But the fans spoke, and Motley Crue listened!”
