Mötley Crüe’s co-founder and bass guitarist, Nikki Sixx, recently posted a photo of himself holding his daughter on his Instagram account and admitted that he has stopped working out which started the rumor that the Mötley Crüe tour won’t happen any time soon.
As you probably know, Mötley Crüe fans have been expecting a tour since 2019, when the band announced that they will be reuniting for ‘The Stadium Tour‘ after seeing the extreme success of their biographical film ‘The Dirt.’ The tour in which they would co-headline with Def Leppard was supposed to take place in 2020 but had to be postponed due to COVID-19.
Recently Nikki Sixx had signaled that ‘The Stadium Tour’ Mötley Crüe will definitely happen but had stated that the time is unknown because they are concerned about the safety of not only their audience but crew members too. As you may recall, one of the biggest signs of the upcoming tour was Vince Neil working out as he was harshly criticized back during Mötley Crüe’s last tour, because he couldn’t perform due to the weight he had gained.
In the past year Vince Neil has been relentlessly working out and he’s not the only one. The other band members were also known to be working out but apparently, Nikki Sixx gave up. Nikki Sixx recently posted a photo holding his daughter in Hawaii, in which it can be seen that he has ‘lost some size on his biceps‘ and Sixx admitted that it’s because he hasn’t been ‘training as hard during the pandemic.’
This obviously scared fans as they perceived this as a sign of the Mötley Crüe tour being canceled. However, later in the caption, Nikki Sixx went on to say that he needs to get back to working out as there’s a lot of work that needs to be done because he ‘should be ready to tour eventually.’
Here’s what Nikki Sixx said:
“I am sure you have noticed my dad has lost some size on his biceps due to not training as hard during the pandemic. So I’ve decided to train him by having him do Hawaiian biceps curls using me as a weight. We got work to do but he should be ready to tour eventually. 💪🏼”
