Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx Flips Double Birds in Response to Justin Bieber Question on Live TV [Video]
Sixx and Neil were being interviewed by WGN in Chicago about The Crue's Final Tour when the topic of Bieber came up.
The anchor asked, “If Justin Bieber came to you guys and said, 'It’s your farewell tour, it’s your final tour. I want to come onstage with Motley Crue.’ How would you guys react?”
Sixx responded by flipping two middle fingers in the air.
Neil added, "They wouldn't even let him in the arena!"
After coming back from commercial break, the station apologized for the incident.
Aside from that bit of live television wonderfulness, Sixx talked about when they decided they were going to do a final tour. "We had started talking about this about four years ago... We felt that there was a certain time when the band would be peaking, and with all the stuff that we had planned at the time and stuff that we are doing right now and the movie that will be coming out next year."
Sixx continues, "We just didn't want to be one of those bands that kind of hobbled off into the sunset or maybe there was only two original guys and they were playing a club. Our music is really important to us and our brotherhood is really important to us. We're the same four guys that started this thing, and we want to end it that way. We figured, why not end it on top? We wish more people did this, to be honest with you."
Earlier this week, the band announced the last leg of the Final Tour. They are playing 34 North American dates in 2015 to commemorate 34 years of Motley Crue.
Motley Crue kicked off the Final Tour in Grand Rapids in July 2014, and their last show ever will be Dec. 31 — New Year’s Eve — in the band’s hometown of Los Angeles.
