Emerging rock band Classless Act, signed to Better Noise Music, is set to open the tour!
With the release of their single “Give It To Me” in 2021, the band has received praise from the likes of rock media including SPIN, Loudwire, and more. Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee was an early follower of the band and is excited to have them join him and his bandmates on the road.
“I remember when we went out with Ozzy in 1984 and how it was an insane game changer!! We literally blew up after having that opportunity to play live in front of 20,000 people every f***ing night! Since then, we’ve always felt it was important to help new bands; whether it was Guns N Roses, Skid Row or so many others. This summer we’re gonna help out Classless Act.”
This led to the band members reuniting and announcing that “Mötley Crüe is back” in 2019. While The Dirt caused a meteoric 350% increase in streams of Mötley Crüe’s music across all platforms, a younger 18-44 demographic now represents 64% of the band’s fanbase. In 2021, Mötley Crüe celebrated their 40th band anniversary, as well as the 40th birthday of their iconic debut album, Too Fast For Love. Mötley Crüe have sold over 100 million albums worldwide, achieving 7 platinum and multi-platinum albums, 9 Top 10 albums, 22 Top 40 Mainstream Rock hits, 6 Top 20 Pop singles and 3 GRAMMY nominations. The band is ready to deliver an over the top stage show packed full of hit songs.
“It’s on! We don’t think we’ve ever looked forward more to kicking off a tour than this one. We can’t wait to finally see all the fans across North America again. Get ready for a wild ride this summer!” Mötley Crüe said in a joint statement.
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees Def Leppard are one of the most important forces in rock music.
In 2019, the icons closed out a sold-out worldwide tour including a North American stadium run & headlining the UK’s Download Festival to 90k screaming fans. Def Leppard’s star continues to rise and prevail. The band also celebrates the landmark 45th anniversary of their formation this year, marking 45 years of legendary rock ‘n’ roll history making. Their influential career crosses generations and includes 110 million records sold, numerous hit singles and ground-breaking multi-platinum albums—including two of the best-selling albums of all time, Pyromania and Hysteria, both of which are certified Diamond (10x platinum).
“On behalf of the band, we’re beyond thrilled that the stadium tour is finally happening this summer … it’s been a while coming and we can’t wait to get back on stage again & we can’t wait to see you in one of the many stadiums soon!” said Joe Elliott.
Poison will bring a rocking and thunderous live show to the Stadium.
They will be unleashing an onslaught of hit after hit songs in its set. Michaels and Poison are known to bring a unique style of passion, energy and sincere gratitude with a positive attitude. Michaels engages all the fans and makes it an absolute epic ride of true live music. Poison will rock the stadium with a chemistry that will bring a big summer mega party vibe. Michaels promises to give 1000 % on the stage as the hotter it gets the harder Poison promises to rock!
Poison’s Bret Michaels also added: “There are not enough words to thank the three generations of fans for making this such an exciting, record breaking, historical tour with the fastest sell outs in history at these stadiums.”
Joan Jett grew up in a time when Rock N Roll was off limits to girls. But she blew the door to the boys’ club off its hinges.
She formed her band the Blackhearts in 1979. Jett has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and has had eight platinum and gold albums. Her career has spanned from music to film, television, Broadway, and humanitarianism. Joan Jett remains a potent force and inspiration to generations of fans worldwide. Jett oversaw seminal albums by Bikini Kill, and the Germs. Jett and Kenny Laguna co-founded Blackheart Records from the trunk of Kenny’s Cadillac after rejections from at least 23 labels. 40 years later, Blackheart is a thriving entertainment company producing music, film and television, and continues to champion emerging bands. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts continue touring with headlining shows alongside rock legends like Green Day, Heart, and Foo Fighters.
“We are so excited to be back out on the road! We missed doing what we love most and can’t wait to see the fans out there again!” said Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
