Nikki Sixx has absolutely no regrets about “The Stadium Tour,” which also features Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, being pushed back until 2022.
Sixx shared a graphic to his Instagram that read, “I’m so happy we decided to not tour during this pandemic…….100%.” He added in the caption, “Not a hard decision to make when so many people’s lives are at risk. I MISS IT ‘REALLY’ BAD AND CAN’T WAIT TO HIT THE ROAD IN 2022.”
A number of acts, including Nine Inch Nails and Stevie Nicks, have in recent weeks decided to cancel all of their 2021 performances due to the ongoing concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic.
Of course, postponing “The Stadium Tour” also gives Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil more time to get into tour shape. Neil made headlines in June for having to cut a solo gig in Boone, Iowa short at just 14 songs after losing his voice and struggling vocally throughout the entire set.
“The Stadium Tour” is currently slated to kick off on June 16 in Atlanta. A full list of tour dates can be found at Motley.com.
