(Gibson) It's true: Motley Crue are plotting their farewell tour, which will take place this summer. While fans are understandably mourning the loss of the legendary '80s rock band, there's some comfort in the fact Mφtley Crόe's members plan to continue with their respective solo projects.

During the band's press conference where the guys announced their final outing, each member also chatted about what's ahead for him once Mφtley Crόe are no longer a band.

For frontman Vince Neil, the future will bring more time for his restaurants and solo music. "I've been in the restaurant business for a long time, and so (I'm) just continuing that, and also music," he said. "I'll never stop singing on stage and (will) kinda carry that Mφtley banner…with me with all the concerts that I perform at… I have to have music in me so…I'll be continuing that."

"I just moved to Nashville, so I got lots and lots of musicians to work with," added guitarist Mick Mars. "I plan on seriously pursuing my solo album now and coming out with a book about myself, but I might write it backwards from death till I was born. I'm not sure on that one yet."

Drummer Tommy Lee said his future involves some "big surprises" that he can't reveal yet. Bassist Nikki Sixx said he also has a ton of different projects going on. "I have a side project, Sixx: A.M., that's something I'm very passionate about," Sixx said. "I'm gonna keep doing that. I have a radio show that I do. (I'm) working on a Broadway play (and will) continue to make music."

The Crόe will kick off their farewell tour July 2 at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Mich. Alice Cooper will open on the entire trek. more on this story
