The legendary lead guitarist of Mötley Crüe, Mick Mars has shared a really interesting statement about the free tickets he pledged on his official and verified Instagram page.

In a conversation with Don Jamieson back in 2014, the legendary guitarist previously said that if Mötley Crüe would reunite again he will give the free tickets to the whole world.

Today, he explained that he was joking about free tickets and they will never tour again after the upcoming farewell tour.

Here’s Mick Mars’s statement:

“While I was clearly joking about the free tickets that night on TMS, I was also deeply convinced that we would never ever be touring again. I would never have expected to be facing a whole new generation of fans demanding to see us play.

He continued:

In fact, touring with MÖTLEY CRÜE comes at a weird place in time, since my solo record is almost complete after such a long time or 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.”
