Rolling Stone confirms Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison stadium tour

And THIS is the reason I was born.

And it just so happens that I'm VERY single right now, so there is nothing that will stand in my way (again)

According to Rolling Stone, Mötley Crüe are reportedly set to legally clean themselves out by blowing up their “cessation of touring agreement” and hitting the road next year for a U.S. stadium tour with Poison and Def Leppard. While specific dates and venues have yet to be announced, the three acts will perform at stadiums around the country.

Prior to the beginning of Motley Crue’s “the Final Tour”, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, and Tommy signed a “cessation of touring agreement,” (this is something that actually happened – I was in the room when it was signed) which they claimed was a binding document that would prohibit them from ever playing again after the tour ended. At the time, the group’s management failed to produce this alleged document despite repeated requests.

In 2014, bassist Nikki Sixx said, “Legally, we can’t play again. The only loophole is if all four band members agreed to do it, we could override our own contract”

Mötley Crüe played 158 shows on their 2014/15 Final Tour, wrapping up with a hometown show at the Forum in Los Angeles on December 31st, 2015.
