Def Leppard’s Rick Allen recently talked to SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk” about Leppard’s “The Stadium Tour” along with Motley Crue, Poison, and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, where it will now take place in 2022.
“I knew that [another postponement] was a possibility, but that news couldn’t come from me.
“I think whether it’s sports, whether it’s music, whether it’s theater, all of the promoters, it was their call. I happen to think they made the right decision because I think the primary focus has gotta be people’s health and well-being. So I understand why they made that decision.
“I think if we had gone out this year, it may have been a bit more of a patchwork of a tour as opposed to being able to play the whole thing from start to finish. So, it’s a bummer, but here we are.
“I kind of knew it was coming, because when I saw Rage Against The Machine when I saw their tour get pushed, I was, like, ‘You know what? It’s a bummer, but I think we’re probably gonna be next.'”
