After weeks of speculation, it’s confirmed that Motley Crue, Def Leppard and Poison will tour together in 2020 – and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts will join them.
Rumours of possible live shows involving the trio began to appear in mid-November – and they gained more traction when Motley Crue announced their intentions to tour again by destroying their famous cessation of touring contract they signed in 2014, prior to what was billed as their farewell tour.
The run of summer stadium shows will kick off at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on July 7 and conclude at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on September 5.
It’s also been confirmed that Motley Crue, Def Leppard and Poison will be joined on the road by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.
The 22-date tour will 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 will also be Poison’s first since their 2018 Nothin’ But A Good Time tour, while Def Leppard will return to the stage following a busy 2019 which has seen them play a string of live shows, including a Las Vegas residency.
All three bands have shared a video to mark the announcement, with Def Leppard adding: “It’s official. We’re hitting the road with Motley Crue and special guests Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts next summer for a tour so massive that it could only be held in America’s biggest stadiums.”
A ticket pre-sale will get under way on December 16, with tickets going on general sale of December 20.
