Motley Crue’s final ever show is to get a release in cinemas next month.

The End will be screened in selected cinemas on October 13.

Filmed at the band’s final show on New Year’s Eve last December, the concert at the band’s hometown arena Los Angeles Staples Center marked Motley Crue’s farewell show after 35 years on tour.

The band announced their split in 2014 when singer Vince Neil, bassist Nikki Sixx, guitarist Mick Mars and drummer Tommy Lee signed a “cessation of touring” agreement to ensure that none of the band could try reviving the band’s name for future shows.

The resulting tour, ‘The Final’, grossed £75m from its 164 shows. The shows saw Sixx’s bass spitting fire 30ft into the air, Lee’s ‘Cruecify’ drum kit fly over the audiences and Neil and Sixx rise over the audiences to perform main set closer ‘Kickstart My Heart’.

The main concert segment is directed by Christian Lamb, who has directed tour videos for Madonna, Rihanna, Coldplay, Taylor Swift, John Legend and Def Leppard, while its documentary section is directed by Jackass creator Jeff Tremaine.

A list of the cinemas will be available soon on Motley Crue’s website.
