In a recent interview for ‘Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk,’ Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen opened up about the possibility of canceling the upcoming 2021 tour of Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard.
As you might remember, The Stadium Tour of Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, and Poison was rescheduled for the summer of 2021 due to the global pandemic of coronavirus and the whole members of the bands were silent after the official announcement.
During a recent conversation for SiriusXM’s show named ‘Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk,’ Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen talked about what he had been thinking of the possible cancelation of their 2021 tour. Apparently, Phil believed that there is a 50 percent chance that the tour might be canceled.
Here’s what Phil Collen stated about the possibility of cancelation of The Stadium Tour:
“I honestly don’t know. I’d say it’s 50/50. If everyone does what they are supposed to do, then we will be there next summer – literally a week from now, next year, we’ll be out there. I’m really looking forward to it.
“Me and Nikki Sixx were talking about getting in shape for it — we were, like, ‘How you doin’?’, and all of this stuff, and it was awesome — and then we had the plug pulled. So we actually have got a year to look even better, so it will be even cooler.
So hopefully — that’s the plan. It depends. It’s not us. It’s like when you’re driving. It’s that thing — it’s not me; you have to watch out for every other idiot on the road. So that’s where we are right now. But we are ready to go.”
Furthermore, Phil pointed out that the previous postponement of the tour hadn’t been announced up until the last three weeks before it was supposed to start.
“It wasn’t just the promoters that were involved in the timing of the postponement; actually, that was secondary. First off, it was Major League Baseball. We’re playing in their buildings, so that has to be taken care of first, then the promoters.
And then we’re down that food chain. So we are ready for when everyone else is. Absolutely, at the drop of a hat, we’ll be there, good to go. I’ll definitely be ready by then, for sure.”
