Nikki Sixx offers update on Mötley Crüe ‘The Stadium Tour’

Late last spring, Mötley Crüe and ‘The Stadium Tour’ with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts announced their rescheduled dates with shows running from June through September 2021 (see all confirmed dates below). The outing was initially planned for summer 2020, but was postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

With the fate of major tours still an uncertainty in 2021 due to the continued coronavirus threat, a fan has reached out to Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx via Twitter to inquire on an update on the scheduled trek. “Any tour update Nikki?” asked the fan on February 26th. Nikki promptly responded, “Our concern is the safely of not only our fans but everybody involved in a tour. The bands, crews etc etc. As soon as we get the green light we’re excited to get out and tour.

As Blabbermouth points out, just last month, Def Leppard guitarist and backing vocalist Phil Collen appeared on ‘The Jeremy White Podcast’ and was asked how confident he was ‘The Stadium Tour’ was going to happen this summer. “I’m really confident if they get the vaccine rolled out,” Collen responded. “It’s the same way anywhere around the world,” he added, “You go, ‘Hey, are you coming to so and so?’ Well, I don’t know if we’re allowed to travel and whether we would be allowed on the plane or even in that country. So, it’s looking good — or not. We really don’t know. It really comes down to how everyone deals with approaching this pandemic and stuff.” Check out a clip of the interview below.

As Variety reports, Dr. Anthony Fauci (a top infectious disease expert in the U.S. and chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden) recently said he believes concert venues and theaters could reopen “some time in the fall of 2021.” Fauci stated, “If everything goes right, this is will occur some time in the fall of 2021, so that by the time we get to the early to mid-fall, you can have people feeling safe performing onstage as well as people in the audience.

In their recently released financial results for the quarter ending on December 31, 2020, Live Nation Entertainment declared that concerts are staged for a big comeback, with 83% of fans still holding on to their postponed concert tickets, and with 64% of fans planning to attend even more live music events than they did before. “We continue to have a substantial tailwind in the live event industry, as consumers more than ever are looking to spend on experiences,” commented Live Nation. “The supply-demand fundamentals of the concerts business remain strong, with artists ready to get back on the road and fans eager to reconnect at events.

The start of Motley Crue’s impending 2021 stint will mark the band’s first live appearances since ‘The Final Tour’ in 2014 and 2015, which saw the band touring heavily and hitting cities across the world with Alice Cooper in tow. ‘The Stadium Tour’ has already sold 1 million tickets and has grossed $130 million in sales, plus another $5 million worth of VIP seats, according to agents and managers, as reported by Billboard.
