Def Leppard’s long-awaited stadium tour with Motley Crue, Poison and Joan Jett has been postponed until 2021 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In a combined statement, the bands say, “We wanted to continue to communicate with our fans and update you with valid information as it becomes available. The official decision has been made to move all 2020 North American Stadium Tour dates into the summer of 2021.
“The new stadium dates are being rescheduled, your tickets will be honoured for all postponed shows and refund policy information will be made available shortly. Stay tuned, be safe and we will see you next year.”
The 28 scheduled dates were be Motley Crue’s first shows together since they completed their ‘final’ tour in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve 2015. The road trip was also to be Poison’s first since their 2018 Nothin’ But A Good Time tour, while Def Leppard were returning to the stage following a busy 2019 which saw them play a string of live shows, including a Las Vegas residency.
The tour was due to kick off in Jacksonville, FL on 18 June, and climax at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium on 5 September.
