The Final Tour consisted of 130 concerts around the United States, 16 shows in Europe, 5 shows in Asia, 6 shows in Australia region, and one in South America with a reported gross earnings of approximately 86 million dollars.

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.
