Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts have rolled out dates for a massive 2020 tour that will take them to stadiums all over North America. It kicks off July 7th at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium and wraps up September 5th at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium. Tickets go on-sale for “The Stadium Tour” on December 13th at 10:00 am.

This is Mötley Crüe’s first time playing shows since their “Final Tour” of 2014/15. They signed a “cessation of touring agreement” before that one began. “Legally, we can’t play again,” bassist Nikki Sixx claimed to Rolling Stone backstage at a 2014 show in Denver. “The only loophole is if all four band members agreed to do it, we could override our own contract. But we know that will never happen. There are people in this band who will refuse to ever do it again, and you’re talking to one of them. There is no amount of money that would ever make me do it again because I have such pride in how we’re ending it.”

Last month, however, the group announced their return in a YouTube video that shows a template of a touring contract getting blown to bits. It was narrated by Machine Gun Kelly, who portrayed drummer Tommy Lee in the the band’s recent biopic The Dirt. “In the years since Mötley Crüe became more popular than ever and gained an entirely new legion of fans,” he said, “who along with die-hard Crüe heads demanded that the band blow up that stupid contract.”

Mötley Crüe toured with Poison in 2011 and Def Leppard toured with Poison in 2017, but this is the first time the three Eighties hard rock acts have hit the road together.
