With the Stadium tour officially scheduled to kick off in two months around July 4th weekend, fans are still wondering what the status of their very expensive tickets are. Motley Crue have just released a statement to let people know that the status of their tour with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett… is going to be known by June 1st.
"We wanted to reach out to all of our amazing fans and let you know that we've been hard at work preparing an amazing show. Our priority during this unprecedented time is to make sure that we are being as thoughtful and responsible as possible in the decisions we are making regarding The Stadium Tour and that we are putting the fans' health, well being and safety first and foremost. We are currently weighing all options and are awaiting further direction from the powers that be. Our goal is to have an official update to everyone by June 1 outlining exactly how we will proceed. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy. We cant wait to see you all again."
While they are not outright saying it, it's clear all the shows will be postponed, likely to next summer. Even though some states seem amicable to reopening up, it's clear states where there are major infections like New York and California are still many months away from reopening. For a tour on this scale, it is not economically feasible to skip these major states, or even reroute these tours. Who knows if these stadiums will even be officially allowed to be open by the summer?
Fans should proceed expecting these shows not to happen. But what about their money? The problem is, since the shows aren't canceled or postoned yet, nobody can ask for refunds. Both Live Nation and AEG recently changed their policies offering refunds for postponed shows for only 30 days within the announcement of the postponement.
One thing is for sure – vocalist Vince Neil is gonna be friggin' ripped by the time this tour hits.
