CINDERELLA frontman Tom Keifer says that he wasn’t particularly surprised to see MÖTLEY CRÜE reneging on its infamous “cessation of touring” contract.
After vowing in 2015 never to play together again, CRÜE announced last December that they will be touring in 2020 with fellow hard rock veterans DEF LEPPARD and POISON.
“That’s very common,” Tom told Anne Erickson of Audio Ink Radio in a new intervew.
“I think people want to say, ‘Enough’s enough. I’ve had enough of this.’ It can really be a grind, touring constantly. But then I think you get off the road for a while and you get the itch again. So, I would imagine when they made that decision that they meant it, and then they got off the road and got the itch. So, in one sense, that was a surprise, but not really.”
Asked if he will go see the CRÜE/LEPPARD tour, Tom said:
“I think we’re on the road when they’re in town; if I remember correctly, we are. So, I don’t know. We have a lot of dates that are being booked right now. We’re gonna be announcing our tour stuff very soon here, so we’re gonna have a pretty busy year. We’ll see if our paths cross out there on a day off, maybe.”
