Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx recently shared a tweet to answer whether the band is going to start their Stadium Tour with Def Leppard this year or not after a concerned fan wanted to know it for sure.
In 2019, Mötley Crüe announced their upcoming tour which was planned to take place in 2020 as the band’s first major tour since 2015. Then the band had to reschedule their concerts to 2021 because of the global pandemic. However, 2021 was another disappointment for both the band and their fans.
Due to increasing COVID-19 cases and some people’s reluctance to get the vaccine, Mötley Crüe decided to postpone their Stadium Tour to this year once again. It will start on June 16, 2022, in Atlanta and end on September 7, 2022, in San Francisco. Def Leppard, Poison, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts will also join them as the co-headliners.
Even though Nikki Sixx guaranteed that they will begin their upcoming tour according to the schedule many times, fans are still worried especially after the Omicron variant. Thus, Sixx confronted the fan saying that they will definitely hit the road with Def Leppard in June and he’s looking forward to it.
Here’s what a fan asked:
“Are you guys still on for the Stadium Tour? This Philadelphia fan is anxiously awaiting and looking forward to it!”
“We’re 1000% hitting the road with Def Leppard for The Stadium Tour in mid-June… I can’t f’ckin wait…”
