Famous rock and rollers Mötley Crüe will be making a stop at the Buffalo Chip music festival, Sturgis, in South Dakota on August 5.
The “Home Sweet Home” singers are scheduled to storm the Wolfman Jack Stage for their rock show as a part of the “All Bad Things Must Come to an End” tour. The performance will be a part of the band’s last tour after a 33 year long stretch.
While fans will be left to mourn the conclusion of the long rock run, it seems the band is ready to move on. Bassist Nikki Sixx recently said in an interview with Rolling Stone, “We believe artists should be in control of their own destiny and that destiny also includes when it should be done so that fans can forever be proud.”
And forever be proud they shall be!
The rockers are pulling out all the stops for the final farewell tour. For starters, fans can expect a pre-show fit for a king, Sir Alice Cooper is set to appear front and center stage dressed in his finest regalia alongside that infamous guillotine.
“ITM” and “Movies You Wanna Watch” host Gina Giordan interviewed Cooper at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. Cooper was promoting his latest project, a film based on his life, “Super Duper Alice Cooper.” The shock rock legend revealed how excited he is to hit Sturgis this year and boasted, “I’m in better shape now than I was at 30. When I was 30, I was a mess. Now, I can actually remember what to do! At 66, I’ve never been in better shape! I do 2 hours a night, 5 nights a week and feel great!”
If Cooper live isn’t enough, Crüe fans will get a real dose of rock and roll Sturgis style, thanks to New York’s homegrown rock band, Sweet Cyanide, who will officially kick off the night and get the party started, opening live for Cooper and Mötley Crüe. For the past 4 years, Sweet Cyanide has put on an unforgettable show for Sturgis fans and become a festival favorite. Sweet Cyanide front man, Sal Scoca says he is a huge fan of both Crüe and Cooper, “When I was ten my cousin gave me two albums, Alice Cooper’s “Killers” and Mötley Crüe’s “Too Fast for Love,” from that day on my life was never the same.”

When you buy tickets to ride and camp at the 9 day Buffalo Chip festival all the rock concerts are free.
