THE DIRT: Netflix Unleashes Official Trailer For Mötley Crüe Biopic!

Brace yourself for the official trailer for ‘The Dirt.’ Based on Mötley Crüe’s 2001 best-selling autobiography, The Dirt is an unflinching and uncensored story about sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll, fame, and the high price of excess. Director Jeff Tremaine (JACKASS co-creator, BAD GRANDPA) shows us just how Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), Tommy Lee (Colson Baker), and Vince Neil (Daniel Webber) took Mötley Crüe from the Sunset Strip to the world stage, and what it meant to become the world’s most notorious rock band.

Their music made them famous. Their lives made them infamous.

‘The Dirt’ debuts on Netflix on March 22nd, 2019.

Take a photo tour of the stunning home. This marks a first as no other campaign on Pledge Music has ever included a house for sale before.

Boasting unmatched quality with unique design and character, this grand estate offers unparalleled explosive city light views and privacy! Interior features include a state of the art permitted professional recording studio, home theater, two kitchens, three story interior atrium with cascading waterfalls, koi pond, and retractable roof, walnut and travertine floors, custom detailed soaring ceilings and so much more!

The groundbreaking 1987 album featured smash hits “Wild Side,” “You’re All I Need,” and the iconic title track “Girls Girls Girls”, which became a global success, despite the original uncensored video being banned by MTV. In 2011, it was named “one of the most NSFW (not safe for work) videos of all time” by Rolling Stone.

The LP explores themes inspired by the band’s hard-living lifestyle at the time, documenting experiences with booze, drugs, strip clubs, love of motorcycles, and death.

“The music and lyrics reflect what was going on in the streets of Los Angeles at that time,”explains now 16- years-sober Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx. ”A big thank you to all the fans who have made the album stand the test of time. It’s really cool to now see a new generation of fans exploring and digging Girls, Girls, Girls three decades later.”

Mötley Crüe’s envelope-pushing music, as well as their well-documented off-stage antics, paved the way for stardom and defined rock for the era. 36-years later, the group continues to be a leading force in rock around the world.

“Mötley Crüe: The End” Box Set To Receive Worldwide Release On November 25 Via Eleven Seven Music

“Mötley Crüe: The End” Box Set To Receive Worldwide Release On November 25 Via Eleven Seven Music

motley-crue-yellow-2016-1

Just in time for the holiday season, legendary rock band, MÖTLEY CRÜE have something special for their fans in the form of a box set, Mötley Crüe: The End, available world-wide across physical retailers November 25 via Eleven Seven Music. Fans can pre-order the box set for $175 beginning TODAY via Pledge Music HERE

The box set will chronicle the span of their 35-year career with the inclusion of six LPs and CDs, packaged within a hardcover photo book, of Too Fast for Love (1981), Shout At The Devil (1983), Theatre of Pain (1985), Girls, Girls, Girls (1987), Dr. Feelgood (1989), Saints of Los Angeles (2008), and conclude with a live audio CD and DVD of the band’s final performance to a sold-out Los Angeles Staples Center arena on December 31, 2015. Also included are four exclusive, autographed lithograph photo prints of the band, four exclusive Mick Mars guitar picks and a commemorative ‘Final Tour’ VIP laminate pass. In honor of the 33rd Anniversary of Shout At The Devil, fans can purchase a special package for $100 via Pledge Music TODAY, which will include, the album CD, four exclusive, autographed lithograph photo prints of the band, hardcover tour photo book, commemorative ‘Final Tour’ VIP laminate pass and the live audio CD and DVD of Mötley Crüe’s final performance.

The last night of the ‘Final Tour’ DVD is a must-have keep-sake for any Mötley Crüe fan. The spectacular final concert at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles, CA, on New Year’s Eve in 2015, just a few miles from the Sunset Strip where the band’s infamous and decadent career first launched, can now be relived! The band thrilled the sold-out arena with performances of such mega-hits as “Kickstart My Heart,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Home Sweet Home” and “Dr. Feelgood.” While not everyone was able to see their final show live, Crüe fans can now catch all the action via DVD in the comfort of their home. In addition to the epic concert footage, viewers will be treated to exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s last show ever.

In January, 2014, Mötley Crüe held a press conference announcing their Final Tour, complete with a “cessation of touring” agreement signed by all members prohibiting any and all future live engagements under the Mötley Crüe name. Mötley Crüe’s two-year concert trek, saw the band — Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitars), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums) — perform across five continents (North America, South America, Europe, Australia and Asia) for a total of more than 164 shows in 72 markets grossing over $100 million. Known for their over-the-top production, Mötley Crüe did not disappoint for their last show ever on New Year’s Eve: from massive, cutting-edge pyro, including Nikki Sixx’s bass guitar spitting fire over 30 ft. into the air, and Tommy Lee’s “Crüecifly” drum roller coaster, amongst many other spectacular elements.

Lead singer, Vince Neil, delivered an emotional, “thank you” speech to the audience, while the band supplied next-level, high-octane fueled energy, ringing in the New Year on stage with thousands of balloons raining down on the crowd. The grand finale of the show included a blow-out performance of their hit single, “Kickstart My Heart” with Nikki Sixx and Vince Neil floating above the audience in far-reaching “cherry-pickers.” Leaving fans in tears, the show concluded with an emotional encore rendition of “Home Sweet Home” from the second stage riser in the center of the audience.

MÖTLEY CRÜE announced The Final Tour and the band’s ultimate retirement, solidified when the band signed a formal Cessation Of Touring Agreement, effective at the end of 2015, in front of global media in Los Angeles on Jan. 28. Celebrating the announcement of The Final Tour, the band performed on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” later that night and appeared on “CBS This Morning” on Jan. 29.

With over 80 million albums sold, MÖTLEY CRÜE has sold out countless tours across the globe and spawned more than 2,500 MÖTLEY CRÜE branded items, sold in over 30 countries. MÖTLEY CRÜE has proven they know how to make a lasting impression and this tour will be no different. Fans can expect to hear the catalogue of their chart-topping hits and look forward to mind-blowing, unparalleled live production. “When it comes to putting together a new show, we always push the envelope and that’s part of Mötley Crüe’s legacy,” explains Nikki Sixx (bass). “As far as letting on to what we’re doing, that would be like finding out what you’re getting for Christmas before you open the presents. We think in an age of too much information, we’d like to keep some surprises close to our chest until we launch The Final Tour.”

The Final Tour, presented by Dodge and produced by Live Nation, will kick off in North America on July 2 in Grand Rapids, Mich. and reach 73 markets before hitting international territories in 2015. To Live Nation, MÖTLEY CRÜE tours are not only box office successes but artistically have set the bar for production and entertainment value. “There’s no arguing that Mötley Crüe have been and always will be the definitive bad boys of rock ’n’ roll,” says Rick Franks, Live Nation’s regional president of North America concerts. “But behind all those notorious stories is a legendary rock band that has revolutionized heavy metal and created some of the biggest hits in music history. They are a hugely successful global brand and a touring powerhouse. Everyone at Live Nation has a tremendous amount of respect for these hard-working and extremely talented gentlemen. The music industry will never have another Mötley Crüe.”

The Dodge Brothers were a notorious duo, so it seemed only natural to partner with the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band. “Whenever I talk to people about Mötley Crüe, the common thread is how cool and relevant the band remains, even after 33 years,” said Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO, Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “This irreverent ‘staying power’ resonates deeply with the Dodge brand as we turn the corner on our 100-year anniversary. What better way to celebrate the band’s final tour and the 25th anniversary of Kickstart My Heart than to do it together?”

Fans can look forward to very special guest ALICE COOPER joining MÖTLEY CRÜE for an incredible package; Alice invented the rock ‘n’ roll genre and MÖTLEY CRÜE put steroids in it! “Real hard rock bands are hard to find these days,” said Alice. “Mötley has always gone on stage with one attitude and that’s to blow the audience away. That’s exactly how we do it. Putting Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper together is going to be just what this summer really NEEDS. We’re going to go out there and tear it up, and I can’t wait to see Mötley on stage. Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper—a match made in…Armageddon?”

As documented in the Cessation Of Touring Agreement the band signed at the Jan. 28 press conference, the band will not tour after this final tour. Band attorney Doug Mark of Mark Music & Media Law explains: “Other bands have split up over rancor or the inability of people to get along, but this is mutual among all four original members and a peaceful decision to move on to other endeavors and to confirm it with a binding agreement.” Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars will go their separate ways after the lengthy two-year touring cycle. Tommy Lee (drums) explains: “Everything must come to an end!! We always had a vision of going out with a big f***king bang and not playing county fairs and clubs with one or two original band members! Our job here is done!!!” Of the band’s tumultuous history, Mick Mars (guitar) adds: “(It has been) more drama than ‘General Hospital;’ it keeps ‘em watchin’ and they keep comin’ back.” Vocalist, Vince Neil says of the Finality of the tour: “I’ll miss playing with the guys, but I won’t quit playing rock ‘n’ roll!! I feel there are a lot of great opportunities and exciting projects after Mötley.”
