Motley Crue (opens in new tab), Def Leppard (opens in new tab), Poison (opens in new tab) and Joan Jett (opens in new tab) & The Blackhearts have announced their rescheduled stadium tour.

The bands were due to hit the road across North America this summer with Tuk Smith & The Restless Hearts also on the bill, but the shows had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The new dates will now take place in 2021, kicking off in Nashville on June 19 and wrapping up in San Diego on September 12. All tickets purchased for the postponed 2020 dates will be valid for next year’s shows.

The bands say in a joint statement: “We are excited to share our new dates for the Stadium Tour. We look forward to seeing you in 2021!”

The 30 rescheduled dates will be Motley Crue’s first shows together since their ‘final’ gig in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve in 2015, with the band announcing their intentions to tour again by blowing up their cessation of touring contract in November last year.

The road trip was also to be Poison’s first since their 2018 Nothin’ But A Good Time tour, while Def Leppard returning to the stage following a busy 2019 which saw them play a string of live shows, including a Las Vegas residency (opens in new tab).
