Mick Mars announced on his Instagram that he has received the first dose of the Covid vaccine. The 69-year-old Mötley Crüe guitarist shared a picture of himself in the vaccination chair with the caption: “One down one to go!!! F**k covid”. 

Mötley Crüe were forced to cancel their long-awaited comeback stadium tour with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett last year due to Covid. It has been rescheduled to this year, starting in Nashville on June 19 and ending in San Diego on September 12. 

The 30 rescheduled dates will be Mötley Crüe’s first shows together since they completed their ‘final’ tour in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve 2015. Mars had to go on the record when the band announced the dates in 2019, explaining that comments he'd previously made about fans getting "free tickets" should the band ever reform were only jokes.
