Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett have announced a 29 city Stadium Tour commencing on June 21, 2020, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

With over 700,000 tickets sold and gross box office receipts of over $90 million in the first weekend of sales, The Stadium Tour featuring Def Leppard and Motley Crue with Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts will be the biggest rock tour of 2020. Produced by Live Nation, the summer tour is set to steamroll through America, visiting the country's most iconic stadiums.

Mötley Crüe released a video on November 18 showing the blowing up the Cessation Of Touring Agreement which was signed prior to the FINAL TOUR that wrapped up December 31, 2015.

“Almost 6 years after signing a Cessation of Touring Agreement, the contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together,” the band wrote. “The band best known for breaking the rules has destroyed their cessation of touring contract in true Mötley Crüe-fashion, by literally blowing it up.”

Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott said of the seven new dates in a statement: “The word on the street was that fans were overly excited about this stadium tour even before it was announced … well it’s out there now & it keeps getting bigger & bigger… this is going to be a MONSTER of a tour! “To be in stadiums, you really need to pair up. We’re trying to turn these shows into a mini-festival,” Elliott said. When you think about Joan Jett opening up the night, and then Poison going on and then us and Mötley following them, it’s an event. It really is. And we’re all from the same genre. Most people that like that kind of thing saw us day after day on MTV in the Eighties. Our journeys have gone in different directions since then, but synchronicity pulls us back together once again. It’s a celebration of that whole kind of vibe.”
