It was just about three weeks ago when the combined forces of Motley Crue and Def Leppard announced that their much lauded “The Stadium Tour” was being postponed until 2021 (I discussed that HERE for those who need to check their tickets and work out refunds if the times have found it necessary).
We are excited to share the new dates for the Stadium Tour. All tickets will be honored for the new dates. If you are a ticket holder and cannot make the new show, you will receive an email from your ticket provider or you can visit livenation.com/refund. We look forward to seeing you in 2021!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This is some obviously pretty cool news as a lot of us were looking forward to this tour for the summer and as you know, this year is pretty much cancelled based on the Coronavirus. One has to hope that more of a preventative measure is in place to fend off whatever still lingers from the virus in 2021 because I am still not too sure that I will see a show anytime soon. This pains me because I live for the live concert scene and my conventions. What do you readers think? Will you be attending this new set of dates or have you been freaked out to the point of saying “I’ll pass”… Chime in down below and I will see you with more of the everything else we are still keeping up with during this precarious time.

Holy frigging Hell, has this been a few perilous weeks or what? I don’t know about you readers but I have been a bundle of nerves based on this Coronavirus Pandemic and really cannot wait until things are in as normal a state as is possible. Now I’ve been diligently updating my own Events Calendar along with keeping you all as informed as is possible to do. With so many cancellations over the last few weeks its a sigh of relief to share the rescheduling news and the latest comes from our Finnish friends in Swallow The Sun who will make sure that our Metal Month of March comes in like some Doomish Lion. Here is the update and revised dates.
