Four iconic rock bands that made their name in the '80s — Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts — will join forces for a 2020 stadium tour, which will include a stop at the new Globe Life Field in Arlington on July 14.
The tour, which starts on July 7 in Miami, will go to 22 cities over two months, including Houston's Minute Maid Park on July 15. Thankfully, both the Arlington and Houston dates will be in air-conditioned facilities to avoid the mid-summer heat.
The tour comes six years after Mötley Crüe supposedly retired from touring, a decision that was rendered moot by the success of their Netflix biopic, The Dirt, which has renewed interest in the band. 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of their most popular album, Dr. Feelgood, which will likely be heavily featured on the tour.
Each of the other bands continues to draw interest despite not releasing any new music since 2015. Def Leppard was just inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2019 and continues to tour around the world. While Poison hasn't put out any new music since 2007, fans will be enticed to see the all-original lineup of Bret Michaels, C.C. DeVille, Bobby Dall, and Rikki Rockett. And Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Joan Jett & The Blackhearts will balance out the male-heavy lineup with a firepower that has seen them tour with The Who, Green Day, and the Foo Fighters in recent years.
Tickets will go on-sale to the general public beginning at 9 am December 13 at LiveNation.com. Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase presale tickets beginning 10 am December 10 until 10 pm December 12.
