Motley Crue are reportedly returning to the stage together, just five years after signing a ‘Cessation of Touring Agreement.’ They are set to announce a 2020 U.S. Stadium tour with Poison and Def Leppard, according to an exclusive report made by Rolling Stone.
Crue ignited rumors of the reunion stadium tour for 2020 by retweeting a fans request that they return to the road. The change.org petition says “if the rumors circulating about a Motley Crue comeback are true, then let this petition solidify it. The new fans need a new tour, PLEASE COME BACK.” The band however has since deleted the retweeted tweet from their account.
Motley Crue’s final tour included boasts of 158 shows, wrapping up on December 31st, 2015, at the Forum in their hometown of Los Angeles, CA.
“Legally, we can’t play again,” Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx told Rolling Stone in 2014. “The only loophole is if all four band members agreed to do it, we could override our own contract – but we know that will never happen. There are people in this band who will refuse to ever do it again, and you’re talking to one of them. There is no amount of money that would ever make me do it again because I have such pride in how we’re ending it.”
