Turns out there are some situations so questionable, so potentially dangerous, that even Motley Crue won’t stand for them.

The reunited glam-metal superstars have decided to postpone their much-anticipated reunion tour to 2021, they announced Monday. Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts were scheduled to join them at shows across America, including Orlando’s Camping World Stadium on July 9.

The new stadium dates are being rescheduled, your tickets will be honored for all postponed shows and refund policy information will be made available shortly," the band wrote in a statement.

The tour would have been Motley Crue’s first since their much-publicized farewell in late 2015. After the success of their Netflix biopic The Dirt, they elected to come back for another run of dates, many of which had already sold out.

The tour had been slated to start in Jacksonville on June 18, and also included a Miami show on July 7.
