This summer’s planned Stadium Tour, a mega-ticket featuring iconic rock bands Motley CrueDef LeppardPoison and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, was going to be epic — but fans will have to wait one more year to see the quartet of legends share the stage.

Speaking with Los Angeles radio station KLOS about the Stadium Tour, drummer Tommy Lee hinted at the grandiose stage production Motley Crue has in store for the tour … hardly a surprise, given the infamous rock band’s penchant for theatrics:

“Nikki [Sixx] and I had spent — Jesus! — several months designing ‘The Stadium Tour’. So all that stuff is sitting in a ginormous warehouse. And the only I can tell you is that it’s insane. You give us a ginormous place that seats between 40 and 60 thousand people with no roof on it, alls I can say is we had a blast designing this. It’s one of those where people are gonna walk out going, like, ‘What the hell just happened here?”

The decision to postpone The Stadium Tour to Summer 2021 is the same fate of the Hella Mega Tour featuring Green DayWeezer and Fall Out Boy, another huge tour that was supposed to take place this summer.

Hella Mega was officially postponed on May 19.

It’s an uncertain time for the live music business, to say the very least, with the pandemic forcing iconic venues to cancel their entire 2020 seasons and smaller, independent venues banding together in hopes of ensuring their existence once the pandemic subsides.
