More, from our initial news report of the Stadium Tour:
Pre-sales for tickets to the Stadium Tour begin Dec. 16, with a general on-sale date of Dec. 20. For more on that, visit LiveNation.
The accompanying news release cites the Motley Crue Netflix biopic The Dirt as opening up the glammy Sunset Strip rock band to a wider audience, attention that helped spark the group’s reunion.
Def Leppard, meanwhile, is riding high after its 2019 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and recent Las Vegas residency.
The Stadium Tour is also a big deal for Poison, as the band will be bringing all the hits with its original lineup of Bret Michaels,C.C. DeVille, Bobby Dall and Rikki Rockett.
And as for Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, well, the legendary former member of the Runaways was also recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2015 and remains a fierce pop culture icon.
From top to bottom, the Stadium Tour is a who’s who of classic rock royalty, and it’s going to be a blast.
