If everything Motley Crue has been through over the years hasn’t killed them yet, nothing will. Which might be why they’re kick-starting their hearts back into action.
After weeks of rumors that the band would be coming out of retirement, Motley Crue confirmed Wednesday it would embark on a stadium tour next summer alongside Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
Sadly, Tampa missed out on a date with Dr. Feelgood — but the tour will play Orlando’s Camping World Stadium on July 9, just two days after the tour launches at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium. Tickets to the Orlando show will go on sale Dec. 13. Click here for details.
Motley Crue, you might recall, made a big deal out of their farewell tour, which hit Tampa’s MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre. After that tour, Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars signed a contract pledging never to tour again. But after the success of this year’s Netflix biopic The Dirt, it seems the guys had a change of heart.
Top to bottom, it’s a heck of a lineup. Def Leppard and Joan Jett are Rock and Roll Hall of Famers who still pack in crowds everywhere they go, and Motley Crue’s hair metal peers Poison have stayed as sharp as they can all these years. The Crue has some work to do to catch up.
