While veteran hard rockers Mötley Crüe performed for the last time on New Year’s Eve, the band has one last release planned: a full-length concert film of that last performance. The concert film will feature the band’s New Year’s Eve concert, exclusive interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage from the group’s final week on tour. Since forming in 1981, the four-piece known for anthemic rockers like Kickstart My Heart and Dr. Feelgood has toured the globe, sold more than 100 million records, and become iconic rock ‘n’ rollers known for a decadent lifestyle.

Mötley Crüe went out with a bang on Thursday night at Los Angeles’ Staples Center. “This is the last time you’ll see the four of us,” said frontman Vince Neil onstage during the show (according to Guitar World). “Back in 1981 you got four teenagers roaming the streets of Hollywood, eating, drinking, smoking, f*cking. And here we f*cking are, 34 years later.” The show was the last of the group’s final tour which began in July 2014 and had the rockers playing 164 shows on five continents.

Mötley Crüe called it quits in order to make sure that the group finished a long career on a positive note. “We said, ‘We don’t want to end up playing in clubs and there’s nobody left in the band except for somebody’s brother,’” explained Neil to the L.A. Times. “So we decided to go out on top and on our terms.” And don’t expect a reunion: before the start of the 2014-2015 tour, the band signed a legal document that makes it nearly impossible for them to reunite.

The film, which has a planned 2016 release date, will be released in theaters and on pay-per-view. Two directors will helm the film: Jackass creator Jeffrey Tremaine for the documentary segments and Christian Lamb for the live performance parts.
