Vince Neil has said: 'Mötley Crüe's not breaking up'

Mötley Crüe vow to continue making music despite farewell tour plans
Mötley Crüe have said that they will continue to make new music, despite recently revealing plans for a farewell tour.

Last month the band said they would play 75 arena dates in the US from July-November and signed a 'Cessation of Touring Agreement' which stated that there would be no further live dates from the end of 2015.

However, the group have now said that this doesn't mean they are retiring. Speaking to Phoenix, Arizona's 93.3 KDKB radio station - via The Guardian - singer Vince Neil commented:

"Mötley Crüe will still be around, we're just not gonna tour anymore. That's really kind of it." He added: "Mötley Crüe's not breaking up. We're still gonna be making music. We're still selling merchandise." However, he said the band would "probably" only play a gig post 2015 if they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.

Alice Cooper is set to support Mötley Crüe on the US arena dates. No British dates have been announced as part of the final tour. A film version of the band's infamous biography The Dirt is set for release in 2015, following the band's final tour dates.
