It looks like fans hoping to rock out with Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett this year will have to pump the brakes for a bit once again. They're still coming to your town... just a little later than expected.
Each of the bands made an announcement on their social channels over the weekend with the news that the postponed The Stadium Tour has once again been given new life, with new dates now scheduled for 2022 after originally being slated to kick off this June in Nashville.

Mötley Crüe's bassist, Nikki Sixx tried to hold fans over earlier this year, telling everyone that the bands were doing all they could to ensure a safe return to the stage for all involved. "As soon as we get the green light we're excited to get out and tour," Sixx said in March.
Two months later it seems that green light has been given, and there is now something to glance at sheepishly at the end of the long and winding pandemic tunnel. For more artists and bands making their way back to the road in 2021 and 2022, check out who else is ready to get back out on tour!
