After the recent official postponement of The Stadium Tour featuring Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison & Joan Jett, fans have been waiting to hear the next steps.
Drummer Tommy Lee has addressed the reason behind the delayed postponement and what fans can expect from the upcoming tour slated to happen in 2021.
Here’s what Tommy said:
“We were just about to start [rehearsing]”
“We were gonna start at the beginning of May, rehearse everything, get the production and everything ready, all of May. We would have been in Miami right now rehearsing in the stadium — we had locked out five days in the stadium to rehearse. This week, we would have left rehearsals here in Burbank and we would have been on our way to go set up shop at the stadium and we’d be ripping it right now.”
Asked what people can expect from the CRÜE‘s stage show when the tour eventually happens, Tommy said:
“Dude, oh my God. I wish I could tell you… All I can tell you is, once again, be careful what you wish for. We take it seriously, and what you can pull off in an arena, I think we’ve pulled off pretty much everything you could possibly ever even f*cking think of. So now we get to play with a f*cking ginormous stadium that has no roof on it… I’m just telling you right now: the production… And it’s still there — it’s just put away in a couple of giant warehouses. But, dude, can I just say it’s f*cking ridiculous?”
“I want to be on stage when that day comes and it’s okay for a f*cking stadium to be filled with people going f*cking crazy for the first time,” he said.
“Dude, that’s where I wanna be when this is over. People say, ‘What do you wanna do when this is all kind of over?’ That’s what I wanna do. I wanna be on stage. Because that energy? Can you imagine? I mean, you’re seeing it now with people f*cking rioting, although it’s for many different reasons, but you’ve got a lot of f*cking pent-up anger, energy, and people are going f*cking bananas. And I can’t wait for it to go in that other direction of excitement in, ‘Oh my God! We’re f*cking going crazy, and the music’s loud as f*ck, and everything’s cool.'”
