Metal fans rejoice: US rockers Mötley Crüe will perform in Abu Dhabi later this year. The hair metal band have announced a one-off gig at the du Arena for November 20 – and it will be one of the last chances to see the band live, as the gig is part of their farewell tour.

The band, which is made up of members Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars and Vince Neil, have been performing live for 34 years and will play their final show in their home town of Los Angeles at the end of December 2015. They made a public pact last year to stop performing at the end of this year.

The group formed in 1981 and were one of the most successful bands of the 1980s hair metal scene – they’ve sold more than 100 million albums worldwide.

Tickets for Crüe’s gig go on sale from Tuesday, June 16 from 12pm through Flash Entertainment and Ticketmaster. The band are expected to bring with them their legendary pyrotechnic show for the concert, including Sixx’s flame thrower bass guitar. The stage will also feature the group’s famous Crüesnest, a special part of the stage where fans can get close up to the rockers as they perform.

“We’re excited to add Abu Dhabi to The Final Tour schedule and finally get to perform in the Middle East. It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for us and a special way to say goodbye to the greatest fans in ’rock n’ roll,” says bass player Sixx.

The gig takes place nine days before Abu Dhabi’s Formula One weekend – so expect some more big music acts to be announced for the end of the year in the next few weeks.
