The 22-date trek named The Stadium Tour will kick off on July 7, 2020, at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium and is currently set to wrap up September 5th at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium. Tickets go on sale on December 13th at 10:00 am at LiveNation.com.
Rumors of a Mötley Crüe reunion began early last month when Mark DiDia, manager of the newly re-formed Black Crowes, mentioned it on the Howard Stern show. That quickly led to a fan-driven petition, asking the Crüe to return to the stage. The rumors swelled when the band retweeted the “Bring Back Mötley Crüe ” petition and declared it “interesting”. They later deleted the tweet.
A week later, on November 18th, an unnamed source close to the band revealed that an announcement was imminent. Later that day the band released a video of them “blowing up” their cessation of touring agreement and announcing that they would be hitting the road with fellow ‘80s superstars Def Leppard and Poison but details of that tour remained a mystery until today.
See below for a complete list of tour dates.
Many were surprised at the decision to reunite after Mötley Crüe’s very public signing of the agreement in 2014 prior to their Final Tour, but according to a recent statement by Nikki Sixx, they realized that they “Missed each other.”
“Honestly, I don’t think any of us thought, when we were on The Final Tour, we would ever get back together. We weren’t really getting along at that point. We had been together for 35 years, and it had been a lot of years on the road. I don’t think we took a lot of time for ourselves off; we were just constantly touring for all that time. And when it came to the end, we broke the band up and everybody went their own ways. I think we really needed that break.
He continued, “It was during the making of The Dirt movie, we started working on the script, started being on the set, we started hanging out again together. And I think we really started to realize — without even talking about the music — how much we missed each other. And then that got us to go in the recording studio, which is where the whole thing always starts for all of us. And we wrote a bunch of new music and had a blast in the studio. And then the movie took off. And our fans were super stoked, but we also got a new generation of people. And that kind of started the conversation. But it really was from the heart. We missed each other, to be honest with you, and we missed being in a band together.”
