Never mind that fans paid top dollar for tickets to see Motley Crue on their “farewell tour” six years ago. The group is preparing to embark on next year’s “Stadium Tour” with Def Leppard — and if Nikki Sixx gets his way, it will extend far beyond its scheduled 30 dates.
“We have 30-some stadiums in America,” the bassist says. “And we’ll see. Maybe we might even drag it to Europe, South America, Japan — we don’t know yet. Right now it’s a little far off. We’ll just see what version of ‘The Stadium Tour’ might fit for other countries, if we decide to go.”
The tour, originally set for 2020, was pushed back a year because of the coronavirus pandemic. It was rescheduled again earlier this year. “We really did wanna go this year,” Sixx says. “It’s a little scary to go out there and have the tour maybe get canceled half way. And I know a lot of bands are out there and they’re testing the water and it looks really positive; I’m super excited.”
