Mötley Crüe have announced the 2021 dates of their massive reunion tour. The tour, which will bring the band to U.S. stadiums, with Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, was scheduled to begin today (June 18, 2020).

On June 1, the band announced that the 2020 dates were being moved to 2021. The 31-date tour was expected to be on the short list of 2020’s biggest-grossing tours.

The original tour was unveiled Dec. 4 via a live broadcast on the band’s Facebook page and on SiriusXM, just over two weeks after the group proclaimed that they were reuniting. Additional dates were added on Dec. 18.

The four bands had addressed the uncertainty of the tour, amid the Covid-19 pandemic. In a joint statement released on May 1, they wrote, “Our priority during this unprecedented time is to make sure that we are being as thoughtful and responsible as possible in the decisions we are making regarding The Stadium Tour and that we are putting the fans’ health, well being and safety first and foremost. We are currently weighing all options and are awaiting further direction from the powers that be. Our goal is to have an official update to everyone by June 1 outlining exactly how we will proceed. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy. We can’t wait to see you all again.”

The original tour announcement event, at SiriusXM’s Hollywood studio filled with fans, also included the members of Def Leppard and Poison. The feeds on the Crüe and Def Leppard Facebook pages were plagued with video and audio problems.

During the Dec. 4 live broadcast, Vince Neil talked about how good it was to “get that brotherhood back.” Poison’s Bret Michaels noted that it would be great to perform in front of three generations of fans.

Back on Nov. 18, Mötley Crüe announced they were tearing up their Cessation of Touring agreement. After 35 years together on stage, and 30 years since the release of Dr. Feelgood, the members of Mötley Crüe parted ways without speaking to each other after their final show on December 31, 2015. Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars and Tommy Lee didn’t come together again until 2018 to participate in the making of The Dirt movie, which unexpectedly brought them closer together again including seeing them head back into the recording studio after having gone in their own directions for several years.

Def Leppard were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.

Poison’s all original lineup includes Bret Michaels, guitarist C.C. DeVille, bass guitarist Bobby Dall and drummer Rikki Rockett.
