The year 2020 is going to be an epic one. Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, and Poison are joining forces and going on tour together during the upcoming year!
Mötley Crüe announced in a video they are hittin’ the road after swearing they’d never perform again after their 2015 tour.
In the video, Machine Gun Kelly, who played Tommy Lee in the movie The Dirt, says the band is back!
“I never thought I would see the day when this would become a reality,” Kelly says in the video. “Fans spoke and Mötley Crüe listened!”
Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx told the Rolling Stones in 2014 there’s no way all four members of the band would agree to go back on tour. The band signed a “cessation of touring agreement,” which is a binding document that would prohibit them from ever playing again after the tour ended.
“If anybody ever — and I don’t believe anybody ever would — would call any other band members and say, ‘Hey, it’s been 10 years, let’s just do 10 shows. A million a pop,’ it could never happen unless all four band members agreed,” said Sixx. “And if we did agree, the way we’ve set it up — including this conversation right now — we’d have so much egg on our face. We have so much pride that that alone would stop it.”
The Crüe was egged on by fans who petitioned for the band to continue their legacy. And the classic rockers are giving the people what they asked for.
Mötley Crüe will kick off its U.S. stadium tour right next to Def Leppard, who is currently on tour, and Poison. No tour dates have been released, however, the three bands will perform at multiple cities around the U.S.
