Nikki Sixx rips KISS' End of the Road tour production as "exact reenactment" of Motley Crue's final tour

Nikki Sixx is accusing KISS' ongoing End of the Road farewell tour of ripping off production elements from Motley Crue's final tour.

On his Instagram Saturday, Sixx posted a photo from the Crue's own farewell run, which concluded New Year's Eve 2015, showing him standing on a platform held by a giant crane over the stage. In the caption, he wrote, "If ya wanna see an exact reenactment of this just go to the #LosAngeles Forum tonight," which is where KISS was playing Saturday.

Sixx then took to Twitter to post side-by-side photos of himself and Gene Simmons both using similar looking crane apparatuses during their respective shows.

"Wow. Our body wasn't even cold before they took this exact grande finale from our tour," Sixx wrote.

"Might not matter to Kiss fans but it does to Crue fans," he added. "I dug their music when I was a little kid and it was cool to Co-Headline together a few years but this disappoints me."

KISS has not publicly responded to Sixx's accusations.
