Motley Crue, the band that refuses to die, has decided to resurrect itself via one final farewell tour, a road jaunt that will include a stop Oct. 14 at First Niagara Center. Appropriately, the progenitor and once & future king of shock-rock, Alice Cooper – a man whose influence on the Crue has always been apparent – will handle opening act duties.
The First Niagara Center show is part of an addition to the band’s Final Tour, which has been running for two years now. This last batch of additional shows is said to be the last curtain call for the Crue, so the October gig is more than likely the last the band will play in Western new York.
Tickets for the show will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday through the First Niagara Center box office and Tickets.com. Prices are $25, $39.50, $59.50, $89.50, and $125.
