Motley Crue played their final show on December 31, 2015 in their hometown of Los Angeles. Since then bassist Nikki Sixx has said he is “unofficially retired” from touring. After having a hip replacement surgery this past April, Nikki has been hanging out with his wife and kids, working on 2 Sixx AM records, an adaptation of ‘The Dirt” for Netflix and a stage play for “The Heroin Diaries”. Could he possibly have time for anything else?
