During a December 2022 interview with Brazil’s A Rádio Rock, Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx discussed the band’s future plans. The bassist says he wants the group to continue until their 50th anniversary, which will happen in 2031.
Sixx said the following when asked about the possibility of new music from the band:
“We just did those four songs for ‘The Dirt’ soundtrack. We’re pretty much locked down right now. We’re having conversations beyond . So what’s ’24 look like for us in a touring capacity? As far as new music — I think new music always comes when the band is getting along. We get along so great right now. We’ve been having the best time. We spend time together. We go out to dinner.
Tommy [Lee] just had his 60th-birthday party [last October] down in Mexico, and he invited a small group of his very good friends. And I was there, and a bunch of cool Tommy’s friends. All of our wives were there. John 5 came in. And it was just cool to be able to not talk business, be in rehearsal, get on the phone, talk about the photo shoot or the video. It was just hanging out, walking on the beach. And we had some sweet conversations. Me and Tommy and Vince [Neil] had this conversation. I said, I go,’ What are you guys doing for the next eight years?’ And everybody’s laughing: ‘I don’t know.’ I said, ‘Why don’t we just keep going? Let’s just take it to 50.
So this isn’t a final tour. What does that look like? I have no idea. I’m just telling you, you have the band saying, ‘We’re having a blast. Why stop?'”
