VIDEO: Motley Crue preview farewell concert film

Less than a week after wrapping up their farewell tour at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Motley Crue are previewing the upcoming concert film of the event.

Directed by Christian Lamb, the project will premiere in theaters and via Pay-Per-View this spring, with live footage rounded out with interviews and behind the scenes material shot by Jackass creator Jeff Tremaine.

Motley Crue closed out the 18-month farewell run on New Year’s Eve, the last of three shows in their hometown.

The group announced The Final Tour at a January 2014 press conference in Hollywood, and signed a binding legal document known as a "cessation of touring" contract which prevents them from touring beyond 2015.

Motley Crue were formed in Los Angeles in January of 1981 by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee; the pair recruited guitarist Mick Mars and singer Vince Neil and released their debut, “Too Fast For Love”, in November 1981.

The band went on to sell more than 100 million albums worldwide, including 25 million in the States alone.
