Motley Crue postpone reunion tour

Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts have postponed their US summer stadium tour due to the ongoing pandemic.

“We wanted to continue to communicate with our fans and update you with valid information as it becomes available,” says the bands in a joint statement. “The official decision has been made to move all 2020 North American Stadium Tour dates into the summer of 2021. The new stadium dates are being rescheduled, your tickets will be honored for all postponed shows and refund policy information will be made available shortly.

“Stay tuned, be safe and we will see you next year.”

The four-month series was scheduled to begin in Jacksonville, FL on June 18.

"Our priority during this unprecedented time,” explained the groups recently, “is to make sure that we are being as thoughtful and responsible as possible in the decisions we are making regarding The Stadium Tour and that we are putting the fans' health, well-being and safety first and foremost.”

The 2020 stadium tour sold more than 1 million tickets when they went on sale a few months ago, with another $5 million in revenue generated from VIP seat packages.

Following the huge success of their 2019 Netflix biopic “The Dirt”, Motley Crue saw a massive surge in new fans around the world, which inspired the band members to reunite for a live comeback following the end of their farewell tour in 2015.
