Motley Crue + Def Leppard Announce 2020 Stadium Tour With Poison + More
Well, the rumors were true — Motley Crue and Def Leppard have announced a 2020 stadium tour with '80s comrades Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
What year is it again?
Dubbed The Stadium Tour, the run is set to kick off July 7 in Miami, Fla. and will conclude in Los Angeles, Calif. on Sept. 5.
Poison frontman Bret Michaels has been teasing the announcement for months now, simply stating that the band had some sort of "incredible" plans for a 2020 tour. Def Leppard have been touring pretty actively over the last several years, but Crue are the real reason why the announcement is such a big deal, considering they swore off touring at the end of 2015.
After a successful year, mostly in thanks to the release of their Netflix biopic The Dirt, the Motley boys announced their official return in mid-November. Since the movie's release this past March, Crue saw a 350% increase in streams of their music across all streaming and digital platforms. Apparently, the only way they'd ever have been able to tour again is if all four members agreed. The "cessation of touring agreement" was supposedly blown up, so here we are.
Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 13 at 10am local time. See the dates below.
