MOTLEY CRUE singer Vince Neil canceled his concert at the Ocean Downs Casino in Berlin, Maryland, which was scheduled for today (May 7). No reason for cancellation was given.
Vince Neil and MOTLEY CRUE will launch their “Stadium Tour” with DEF LEPPARD and guests POISON and JOAN JETT AND THE BLACK HEARTS on June 16 in Atlanta, Georgia. Dates and tickets for the tour can be found here.
In a recent interview with QFM96it is “Torg & Elliott”, DEF LEPPARD singer Joe Elliot we asked which group – DEF LEPPARD or MOTLEY CRUE — will close the show every night on “The Stadium Tour” to which he replied, “We both are. We take turns. [There are] 36 shows, so 18 each. Everything has been worked out very scientifically. It’s the same way we did it with JOURNEY in 2018 — exactly the same principle.
In another interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Elliot we asked if DEF LEPPARD plans to do more shows after “Stadium Tour” to promote a new record, Diamond Star Halos. He has answered:
“Of course. It’s always a bit nice to do anything. But this stadium tour is potentially going to last three years around the world. It’s about finding a space between when we stop this year and let’s start again next year to come in and do something that would benefit this situation.
“Right now we’re just focusing on the stadium tour because everything else is so far away and just an idea. It’s an idea we’ve talked about. I don’t see why we shouldn’t or why we couldn’t. Having been away for two and a quarter years, let’s focus on the present moment.
“Hopefully the tour will actually happen,” he continued. “On the face of it, it is 99% certain that this is going to happen. It would take something better than World War III or Omicron to stop him now. We just want to take advantage of the fact that we can do it now. And then we’ll start making plans, but this stadium tour is going to go all over the world.
“That in itself is going to be an event, that’s what we want everything we do to be. The first new album in seven years is an event. This tour was an event before the pandemic was a big event. It’s even bigger now, we just want to get on this particular horse and ride it for as long as we can and see how long we can stay on it.
