Mötley Crüe’s iconic bass guitarist Nikki Sixx took his official Instagram account to explain why the band decided to postpone ‘The Stadium Tour’ and cleared the air about the situation.
About six months ago, Mötley Crüe announced that they are reuniting after the huge success of the biographical movie of the band, The Dirt, and planned to play in front of the audience in summer 2020.
However, the band forced to postpone the tour through summer 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak and disappointed the fans. Also, most of the fans are still waiting for more information about the postponement.
Today, Nikki revealed why they postponed the tour once again by sharing a post on social media and stated that they needed to prioritize the safety of the band members, crew, and fans.
Additionally, Nikki uploaded an unseen photo of himself from the photoshoot sessions that made for ‘The Stadium Tour.’ Furthermore, he wrote that they are looking forward to playing for the audience.
Here is what Nikki Sixx said:
“We would’ve been on ‘The Stadium Tour’ right now but for the safety of our fans, crew, and band members we needed to reschedule the tour till the summer of 2021.
We can’t wait to get back out there with our friends in Def Leppard and play some rock n roll for you. See ya next year 🤘🏽. This is from the day we did all the photos and the press conference.”

What a crazy day this was. Massive production. So many killer shots from this day. Lots of unforeseen challenges.
