Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Etc. Cincinnati + Chicago Shows Postponed
Despite previously saying that they wouldn’t make any announcements about the status of their summer stadium tour until June 1, Bring Back Glam! is now reporting that two shows on the Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison, etc. trek have now been postponed:
- July 2 @ Great American Ball Park – Cincinnati, OH
- August 28 @ Wrigley Field – Chicago, IL
Ticketholders reportedly received e-mails announcing the postponements yesterday, Friday, May 15. Bring Back Glam! cautions that it’s possible the two dates were called off for a reason other than the full tour cancelation — for example the pending beginning of the rescheduled Major League Baseball season — but we expect more shows to be called off soon.
Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee previously expressed confidence the tour would happen while frontman Vince Neil continued his training regimen despite growing evidence the pandemic would make that impossible and a number of other high profile tour cancelations including Rage Against the Machine, Rammstein and others. Then in late April the band’s official Instagram account responded to fans saying that the status was uncertain.
