Motley Crue, Def Leppard Stadium Tour dates moved to 2022

The originally planned 2020 tour moves to 2022

Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe with Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts have shared the rescheduled 2020 tour dates for The Stadium Tour will now take place in 2022 instead of this summer. The trek was set to kick off June 19th in Nashville, but now will begin June 16, 2022 in Atlanta and wrap September 7th in San Francisco.

“To all our loyal fans, we wanted to let you know that we learned today that the tour is getting moved to 2022,” the bands jointly share on social media. “This is the only way to ensure that we can play ALL of the dates for ALL of you who have purchased tickets. We appreciate you hanging in there and can’t wait to get back on stage and bring The Stadium Tour to all of our fans. It is going to be one for the history books!”

All tickets will be honored for the new dates. All 31 dates will be played, but a new date is pending for the Glendale, AZ stop.

Twenty-five stops have sold out while amassing over one million tickets sold to eager fans wanting to see Mötley Crüe return seven years after their Cessation of Touring agreement. The band destroyed the contract following a massive surge in new audience after the huge success of their Netflix biopic The Dirt.

Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen discusses the future of the Stadium Tour on this week’s episode of The Music Universe Podcast, saying it’ll be played whenever it’s safe for all parties. The episode was recorded earlier this week, before the rescheduled announcement.
