Surprise Surprise for all the fans who are looking forward to ‘The Stadium Tour’ in 2021.
As announced earlier with new dates, rock fans will have to wait for a year to see their favorite bands.
Surprisingly, in a new interview on SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk”, Def Leppard’s Phil Collen is unsure whether the tour will actually happen in 2021.
When asked, here’s what he said:
“I honestly don’t know. I’d say it’s 50/50. If everyone does what they are supposed to do, then we will be there next summer — literally a week from now, next year, we’ll be out there. I’m really looking forward to it.
“Me and [MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist] Nikki Sixx were talking [about] getting in shape for it — we were, like, ‘How you doin’?’, and all of this stuff, and it was awesome — and then we had the plug pulled,” he continued.
“So we actually have got a year to look even better, so it will be even cooler. So hopefully — that’s the plan. It depends. It’s not us. It’s like when you’re driving. It’s that thing — it’s not me; you have to watch out for every other idiot on the road. So that’s where we are right now. But we are ready to go.”
On previous announcement and fans made to wait till June 1st, Phil said:
“It wasn’t just the promoters [that were involved in the timing of the postponement]; actually, that was secondary,” Phil said.
“First off, it was Major League Baseball. We’re playing in their buildings, so that has to be taken care of first, then the promoters. And then we’re down that food chain. So we are ready for when everyone else is. Absolutely, at the drop of a hat, we’ll be there, good to go. I’ll definitely be ready by then, for sure.”
