Mick Mars is eating his own words – he says he was simply joking about giving away free Mötley Crüe tickets.
Five years ago, Mars shot down the idea of a Mötley Crüe tour ever happening again on Eddie Trunk’s That Metal Show. He explained that it was so unlikely that he would give away free tickets to fans if it were to actually happen. “Let me put it this way,” he said. “If that happens, I will invite the world to come for free. Free.”
In an Instagram post, Mars felt the need to address his own resurfaced words due to fan buzz. “While I was clearly joking about free tickets that night on TMS, I was also deeply convinced that we would never ever be touring again,” he wrote. “I would have never expected to be facing a whole new generation of fans demanding to see us play. In fact, touring with Motley Crue comes at a weird place in time, since my solo record is almost complete after such a long time of writing and recording. But I put our fans first. Anyways, I am eating a lot of crow and humble pie this Thanksgiving for those remarks and accept that some of you see this as me being dishonest. I said what I said, and I was wrong. Peace.”
