Def Leppard say they are not to blame for Motley Crue reuniting for their upcoming co-headlining ‘Stadium Tour’ this summer, about seven years after what they said was their final tour.
Joe Elliott of Def Leppard talked about them not being responsible Motley Crue reuniting:
"They opened for us in 1983 in San Diego; that was the first time I ever saw 'em. We toured with them in the U.K. in 2011, and over the years we've bumped into 'em at festivals. No, it was nothing to do with Def Leppard specifically, but it was an idea that was put to us, when they decided that if they went out with a band like us, they might [get back] together. So we had been encouraging of it, but we didn't actually suggest it."
Def Leppard and Motley Crue are scheduled to do 36 shows in which they’ll split time as headliners. Poison and Joan Jett will open.
The tour, which was originally scheduled for 2020, starts on June 16th in Atlanta and includes stops at Minute Maid Park in Houston on August 19th, the Alamodome in San Antonio on August 21st and Globe Life Field in Arlington on August 22nd.
