In true Crüe fashion, the band has reverted their vow that touring is over by blowing up their legal cessation papers.

In a recent statement, the band confirmed their American stadium tour having had a recent surge in new fans who have ‘relentlessly demanded the band reform’.

The news followed on from the recent success of Netflix‘s original film biopic ‘The Dirt’, where rapper Machine Gun Kelly played drummer, Tommy Lee, who in a recent interview with SiriusXM, joked that he was stuck for new stage antics. Having always been known for his outlandish drum stunts, he said ‘I’m going to shoot myself out of a fucking cannon at this point’.

When asked for the reasoning behind the latest decision to reunite the band after all this time, Sixx responded:

“We started working on the script, we started being on the set [The Dirt] and we started hanging out together again and I think we sort of realised how much, without even talking about the music, we missed each other. We missed being in a band together.” – Nikki Sixx (2019)


Since the tour announcement in 2019, the band has had a particular overwhelming demand for Boston Stadium resulting in them having to add another show on 26 August. The tour will kick-off on 21 June in San Antonio and end in California on 5 September where it all began for the four-piece back in 1981.

The long-awaited and highly-anticipated tour will also see; Def Leppard, Poison, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and openers Tuk Smith and the Restless Hearts join the Mötley boys for a long string of exciting American stadium dates.
