DEF LEPPARD To Announce 2020 U.S. Stadium Tour w/ MÖTLEY CRÜE/POISON

Def Leppard 2019. Lep Pic By Chele Drappel

Def Leppard are set to announce a massive stadium tour of North America very soon according to industry sources.

Following recent speculation regarding Mötley Crüe's possible return to touring Def Leppard have again been included in a new story by Rolling Stone.

The magazine's website reports "sources" as confirming a tour with Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe and Poison for 2020 in Stadiums.

As mentioned in the Tour News update at the weekend Phil Collen seems to have referenced this tour back in June at the Download Festival during an interview. Read his comments again below.

Rolling Stone is the most legitimate source yet for this tour rumour and is not known for printing random rubbish.

This follows The Black Crowes manager mentioning a tour by the same three bands last week during a live SiriusXM interview about his own band's 2020 reunion tour.

Based on the band's comments throughout the last few months the tour could run anywhere from April/May through to November.

Def Leppard 2020. Mötley Crüe Is Back

Update - In the last hour Mötley Crüe have confirmed they are "back" via a YouTube video showing their "cessation of touring agreement" being blown up. Paving the way for a tour announcement...tomorrow?. Stay tuned. See the video below.

The full North American tour schedule looks set to be announced very soon following the recent surge in rumours. Albeit most of them focused on Mötley Crüe coming out of their live retirement.

Poison played before Def Leppard in the USA, Canada and Mexico in 2009, 2012 and more recently in 2017.

Mötley Crüe's only previous shows with Def Leppard in the USA were the September 1983 San Diego stadium show on the Pyromania tour and at the Chipewa Valley Rock Fest in Cadott, WI in July 1999 during the Euphoria tour. They went on to play six UK shows in December 2011 on the Mirrorball tour.

PHIL COLLEN Hints At Future DEF LEPPARD Stadium Tour

Def Leppard guitarists Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell were interviewed at the Download Festival and talked of future plans.

A telling hint from Phil about what might happen on the 2020 tour came during an interview in June 2019 in the UK. He suggested at least some shows in 2020 might again be played in large outdoor stadiums following the ten shows included on the 2018 co-headline run with Journey.

Quote - "Well we always wanted to do a stadium tour. Which we just did with Journey. And so we want to do more of that."
