Following yesterday’s news of emerging rock band CLASSLESS ACT set to open DOROTHY’s tour this spring, the band is also confirmed to open “The Stadium Tour” this summer with MÖTLEY CRÜE, DEF LEPPARD, POISON, And JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS.
MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee gave his thoughts on the band’s addition to the line-up, saying: “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.”
Due to fan demand, the tour added 5 all new stadium shows to the epic run. Tickets for the new dates will go on-sale to the general public beginning Friday, February 25 at 10 am local time. DEF LEPPARD and MÖTLEY CRÜE VIP offerings for the 5 new shows will be available coinciding with the general onsale next Friday 2/25 at 10 am local time.
“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.
“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.
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.”
“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 & THE BLACKHEARTS.
Tickets for the rest of the dates are available HERE.
