The Stadium Tour is a series of tours organized by the legendary hard rock band from England, Def Leppard, as well as the reckless American hard rock/heavy metal legend, Mtley Crue. Participate too Poison and Joan Jett as a special guest who fills the series of tours. But it’s a shame the tour had to be di-reschedule until mid 2022.

Previously, Motley Crue invited vocalist Van Halen, David Lee Roth to join the tour but Lee Roth turned it down. According to Nikki, Lee Roth has some selective rules against bands that invite him to participate in a music concert.

This was stated by Lee Roth when several years ago he was interviewed at the KKLZ radio station (reported from Blabbermouth) Lee Roth said, “Van Halen is the band we started in 1972. Our first two albums were released in the 1970s. We managed to sell 10 million records before the 1970s ended.”

“After that a lot of plagiarism popped up and touted something completely empty and full” gimmick. It’s very easy, just imitate the haircut, the style of the pants and of course give a bad influence.”

David Lee Roth was part of the Kiss . tour

However statement Lee Roth does not apply to bands contemporary with Van Hallen, namely Kiss. Lee Roth is noted to have participated in a series of Kiss tours entitled “End Of The Road”. Lee Roth supported appearing on the tour with Kiss until the tour had to be stopped and rescheduled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

But on the other hand, it has been reported that the Stadium Tour has also been rescheduled and will only start in June 2022. Nicky Sixx was quite happy with the decision because according to him the delta variant of Covid-19 was certainly a threat. “It is very easy to make the decision to reschedule the Stadium Tour because it is very risky and threatens the lives of many people”.

Then, will Motley Crue try to bring David Lee Roth back in the 2022 Stadium Tour? It is worth waiting for how the diplomacy of the two sides will be.
