MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx says that the band’s “The Stadium Tour” with DEF LEPPARD, POISON and JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS will happen when it’s safe to go to concerts again.
“The Stadium Tour” was originally scheduled for 2020 but postponed to 2021 due to ongoing pandemic. The tour is now scheduled to kick off on June 19, 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee and conclude on September 12, 2021 in San Diego, California. Dates and tickets can be found here.
After one fan asked Sixx on Twitter if there have been any updates on whether “The Stadium Tour” will go ahead this summer, Nikki responded: “Our concern is the safely [sic] of not only our fans but everybody involved in a tour. The bands, crews etc etc. As soon as we get the green light we’re excited to get out and tour.”
In an episode of Zane Griggs‘s “Hunger Hunt Feast” podcast last October, Neil spoke about the immense public interest in the band’s “The Stadium Tour.”
“It’s a nice feeling, that so many people want us to get back together,” Neil said. “Because we basically broke up five years ago — we basically called it quits and said that it was a good run, it was a lot of fun, okay, we’re done.
“So I continued to tour with my solo band up until COVID, and now I’ve had basically almost a year off because of not being able to tour with my solo band. ‘Cause everything got shut down — everything. But it looks like it’s loosening back up.
“I have a couple of solo shows coming up in the next couple of months,” he continued. “It’s gonna be fun just to get back and sing a little bit. I’ve never gone this long without performing or singing in my entire life, since I was 16. So it’ll be fun to just get back out there.
“A lot of people were pretty bummed out when we decided to retire, basically. The excitement around the tour has just been pretty amazing. We have fans that maybe we didn’t know we had.
