The long-awaited fate of the massive Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts stadium tour has been revealed.
It’s been postponed until 2021.
“The official decision has been made to move all 2020 North American Stadium Tour dates into the summer of 2021,” the band wrote in a tweet.
While details about the rescheduled dates are still being worked out, all tickets purchased for the postponed shows will be honored for the future date.
As one of the most anticipated reunion tours of the year, the band made a remarkable reintroduction to the world with a video showing the band blowing up the infamous contract stipulating they were to never tour again.
The band announced a lengthy North American tour seeing them play various stadiums and world famous ballparks like Wrigley Field and Fenway Park. Now, that’ll have to wait.
Back in April, Tommy Lee expressed optimism about being able to go ahead with the tour. He believed that fans will be itching to go to see live music once the COVID-19 pandemic subsides.
"By the time all this f***ing apocalyptic bulls*** is over, I think everyone's going to be in a really good mood to go out and have the f***ing best time ever," Lee says. "I really do. I hope everyone stays inside, and we can get a f***ing grip on this and get back to people having their normal lives."
When the band resumes touring, it’ll mark their first shows since 2015. Prior to embarking on that tour, the band famously signed a “cessation of touring” agreement prohibiting them from ever taking the stage again. As we saw in the video above, Mötley Crüe has never had a problem with destruction.
