Nikki Sixx Is Ready To Stop Touring Completely

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on June 30, 2017

in News

Nikki Sixx has “kind-of, sort-of” retired from touring.

The former bassist for Motley Crue and leader of Sixx:A.M. wrote a note to fans on Facebook Monday (June 26) saying that he’s been on the road for forty years and, unless something drastic happens, has no plans to do it again.

That doesn’t mean he is retiring from music all together. In just two short paragraphs, he has listed a number of projects:

Writing music
Recording with other artists
Taking vocal, bass and guitar lessons
Working on photography
Readying two new Sixx:A.M. releases
Getting two books ready for release
Continuing his SixxAM radio show
Working on The Dirt for Netflix
Working on a theatrical version of The Heroin Diaries
As Sixx so succinctly put it, “YUP, I AM RETIRED. HAHA”

Nikki’s full statement:

For those of you asking,Ive been playing in bands and touring the world for 40 years…I have no immediate tour plans unless I get a wild hair up my ass or something or somebody really inspirational comes along…Since Ive been home Ive just been writing music non stop,recording with other artists,taking vocal,bass and guitar lessons and focusing on photography….Money has never been and isn’t a driving force for me…Let the chips fall where they fall…So I guess I’m unofficially retired or maybe just expired at this time…Nice to give 100% of my time to my wife and kids….

Got a couple SixxAm albums coming out soon and 1 book this year…Sixx Sense radio is the biggest syndicated radio show in the world and that going on 8 years….I got 2 books in the works and I am in talk’s to develop a TV show ( not reality) as well as The Dirt for Netflix and The Heroin Diaries Play….YUP,I AM RETIRED..HAHA
