Earlier this year, Mars told Rolling Stone that he was seeking out a record label to release his upcoming solo album, Another Side of Mars. The musician also made it clear that he will not be taking the album on the road, saying “I’m done touring.”
“If somebody really, really wants a one-off, or a couple of nights, I would probably do it. But all that travel stuff and planes… I’m way over it.”
Currently embroiled in a lawsuit with his former band, Mars has spoken about how his last tour with the Crüe had left him feeling “inferior”.
“Nobody spoke to me in 2022,” Mars said. “A lot of the time [I] felt like I was just playing by myself. You know how you can be in a crowd of people and still feel alone? That’s how I felt that whole tour. I felt used, sad, and inferior.”
“When we played the last show [in Las Vegas on 9 September, 2022] I felt relieved,” he added. “A lot of the pressure was gone. But I was very emotionally wounded. They weren’t just shallow wounds. They were deep ones; the kind you can’t get over.”
