Nikki Sixx Addresses What’s Next For Mötley Crüe After The Stadium Tour With Def Leppard
In a recent interview by Marci Wiser, Nikki Sixx has revealed Mötley Crüe’s future plans following The Stadium Tour featuring Def Leppard.
Although they went on a hiatus back in 2015, Mötley Crüe made a come-back by recording four new tracks in 2018 for the soundtrack of the band’s biography ‘The Dirt’ which was available on Netflix in 2019. The band is known to have signed a contract that stated they will no longer tour, but later on, they announced their ‘The Stadium Tour’ in 2020 which was postponed to a later date due to the pandemic.
Speaking to Marci Wiser in the interview, Nikki Sixx has revealed the band’s future plans and commented on the postponed tour. He said that they really wanted to tour this year, adding seeing other bands touring successfully is good news. Nikki then added that the band has near 30 stadiums in America booked for the tour and said they might drag the tour to Europe, South America, and Japan. Saying it is great they are this close with Def Leppard, he hinted at the possibility of a different lineup for the possible future plans.
Nikki told Marci Wiser that:
“We really did wanna go this year. It’s a little scary to go out there and have the tour maybe get canceled halfway. And I know a lot of bands are out there and they’re testing the water and it looks really positive; I’m super excited.”
He then continued with the band’s plans:
“We have 30-some stadiums in America [booked for the tour]. And we’ll see. Maybe we might even drag it to Europe, South America, Japan — we don’t know yet. Right now it’s a little far off. But we and Def Leppard are super close; that’s great. And we’ll just see what version of ‘The Stadium Tour’ might fit for other countries if we decide to go. Maybe it’ll be the same lineup. I know people are super stoked for the lineup. It’s a good outdoor fun party evening.”
Mötley Crüe’s ‘The Stadium Tour’ was going to happen back in the last summer, but postponed later to 2021 and then 2022 as a result of the pandemic. The tour is known as marking Mötley Crüe’s first live appearances since their farewell tour which took place in 2014 and 2015. Nikki Sixx is also releasing his memoir titled ‘The First 21: How I Became Nikki Sixx,’ which focuses on his life story.
