Mötley Crüe’s tour with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts was recently postponed due to COVID-19 and will be rescheduled for the summer of 2021.
In preparation for the tour, the bands had already booked time at an arena in Jacksonville to rehearse and Motley Crue drummer, Tommy Lee indicated that when the tour eventually does happen, the production is going to be over the top.
Lee said, “Dude, oh my God. I wish I could tell you… Alls I can tell you is, once again, be careful what you wish for. We take it seriously, and what you can pull off in an arena, I think we’ve pulled off pretty much everything you could possibly ever even fucking think of. So now we get to play with a fucking ginormous stadium that has no roof on it… I’m just telling you right now: the production… And it’s still there — it’s just put away in a couple of giant warehouses. But, dude, can I just say it’s fucking ridiculous?”
“I want to be on stage when that day comes and it’s okay for a fucking stadium to be filled with people going fucking crazy for the first time,” he continued. “Dude, that’s where I wanna be when this is over. People say, ‘What do you wanna do when this is all kind of over?’ That’s what I wanna do. I wanna be on stage. Because that energy? Can you imagine? I mean, you’re seeing it now with people f–king rioting, although it’s for many different reasons, but you’ve got a lot of fucking pent-up anger, energy, and people are going fucking bananas. And I can’t wait for it to go in that other direction of excitement in, ‘Oh my God! We’re fucking going crazy, and the music’s loud as fuck, and everything’s cool.'”
