New Date for Def Leppard/Motley Crue in Minneapolis 2021
It was just a few weeks ago when the official announcement was made. (we all knew it was coming) The Motley Crue/Def Leppard/Poison/Joan Jett tour won't happen until next year. Today we found out that the Minneapolis show at US Bank Stadium is rescheduled for July 8th, 2021. They also provided info on how to get a refund if you cannot go to the show.
The first time I saw Mötley Crüe back was in 1989 on the Dr. Feelgood tour. And then I saw them during the first half and the second half of "The Final Tour." If you go, don't expect strong vocals from Vince Neil. He hasn’t had it for years. Nikki, Mick, and Tommy, on the other hand, are amazing, and the stage production is fantastic with an impressive light show and lots of pyro and explosions. Their stage designs have always been impressive. Tommy Lee told RollingStone.com that the new stage is the best yet. I can't wait to see what they come up with for Tommy's drum kit.
“Nikki [Sixx] and I had spent — Jesus! — several months designing the Stadium Tour, he said. “So all that stuff is sitting in a ginormous warehouse. And the only I can tell you is that it’s insane. You give us a ginormous place that seats between 40 and 60 thousand people with no roof on it, alls I can say is we had a blast designing this. It’s one of those where people are gonna walk out going, like, ‘What the hell just happened here?'” - Tommy Lee
The other main headliner's lead singer, Joe Elliott from Def Leppard, can still sing for (the most part), the band is still excellent, and their stage production is also good. I was only disappointed one time. That was the last time I saw him in Las Vegas a few years ago. I thought it was kind of bland compared to previous tours. But they'll be on a Tommy and Nikki designed stage this next go-round. I'm positive it won't be bland.
