Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee announced that Mötley Crüe added brand new concerts dates to their long-waited upcoming Stadium Tour along with Def Leppard.
The Stadium Tour, which is Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe’s headlining tour with Poison, & Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, was announced in 2019 and was supposed to start in 2020, but they had to postpone it to 2021 because of the COVID-19 outbreak. Then, the bands rescheduled the tour to 2022 for the same reason.
As we know from the official press release, the tour will begin on June 16, 2022. Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe revealed additional dates, even rising cases and people’s reluctance to get vaccinated.
The new dates include August 8, Toronto, 16, Indianapolis, September 2, Vancouver, 4, Edmonton, and 9, Las Vegas. The tickets will go on sale on February 25 at livenation.com, and the pre-sale tickets can be available for the Mötley Crüe fans who bought the new Motley Crüe Road Collection Merch.
Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee shared their excitement about the tour dates on social media. Also, Def Leppard’s recent social media post showed that the ‘Stadium Tour’ will be started on the planned date despite all these possible consequences and ongoing global pandemic.
Sixx’s IG post read:
