Mötley Crüe announces reunion, tour with Def Leppard and Poison

(ABC News Radio) -

It's official: Mötley Crüe is back.

After Rolling Stone reported Monday morning that the '80s metallers would be reuniting next year for a U.S. stadium tour, a press release from the band confirms that they are indeed returning to the stage.

The reunion means the end of the Crüe's "cessation of touring agreement," which they signed in 2014 ahead of their final tour. The contract was meant to legally prevent the group -- made up of vocalist Vince Neil, bassist Nikki Sixx, drummer Tommy Lee and guitarist Mick Mars -- from ever performing on stage together again after their last show, which took place New Year's Eve 2015 in Los Angeles.

In a new video posted to YouTube, you can see footage of the contract blowing up in a hail of fire and glass.

The video is narrated by rapper Machine Gun Kelly, who played Lee in the band's Netflix biopic, The Dirt.

"Since playing Tommy Lee in The Dirt, so many of my fans have said how they wish they could've seen the real Mötley Crüe play live," says Kelly in a statement. "I never thought I would see the day when this would become a reality. But the fans spoke and Mötley Crüe listened!"

Exact details of Mötley Crüe's reunion have yet to be revealed. According to Rolling Stone, they'll be touring alongside Def Leppard and Poison.
