Vince Neil Weight

MÖTLEY CRÜE will be joining forces with DEF LEPPARD, POISON and JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS for “The Stadium Tour” next summer.

“Extra” music correspondent Adam Weissler interviewed CRÜE members at the December 4 press conference announcing the trek, and he asked them how they are preparing for the highly anticipated shows.

“We’re gonna go into hibernation mode. We’re gonna sleep for six months and prepare,” Nikki Sixx joked.

Frontman Vince Neil said: “There’s a lot of sacrifice. You have to do everything that you have to do — because from running around clubs to running around theaters to running around arenas to running around stadiums, there’s a whole big difference. You’ve gotta be ready for it.”

MÖTLEY CRÜE have collectively agreed to rip up the “cessation of touring” contract that they signed back in 2014 preventing any of them from performing under the band’s name in the future.

Almost 6 years after signing a “cessation of touring” agreement, the MÖTLEY CRÜE contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together,” band said in a statement. “Following the huge success of their Netflix biopic The DirtMÖTLEY CRÜE has seen a massive surge in new audience. And the band best known for breaking the rules has destroyed their cessation of touring contract in true MÖTLEY CRÜE fashion, by literally blowing it up.

After 35 years together on stage, and 30 years since the release of “Dr. Feelgood”, the members of MÖTLEY CRÜE parted ways without speaking to each other after their final show on December 31, 2015. Vince Neil, Nikki SixxMick Mars and Tommy Lee didn’t come together again until 2018 to participate in the making of The Dirt movie, which unexpectedly brought them closer together again including seeing them head back into the recording studio after having gone in their own directions for several years. The fuse was lit.
