The tour with Joan Jett and Poison was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic


The 2020 stadium tour by Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard Poison and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts — which was postponed on June 2 because of the coronavirus pandemic — has now confirmed its rescheduled dates for 2021.

The 2020 tour was set to open July 7 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami and conclude Sept. 5 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, with a July 23 date at San Diego’s Petco Park in between.

The 2021 tour will open June 19 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville and conclude Sept. 12 at Petco Park. All of the newly scheduled 2021 tour dates appear below.

“We are excited to share our new dates for The Stadium Tour,” the four bands said in a joint statement issued Thursday.

“All tickets will be honored for the new dates. If you are a ticket holder and cannot make the new show, you will receive an e-mail from your ticket provider or you can visit We look forward to seeing you in 2021!”

Ticket holders who want to obtain a refund have 30 days to do so.

Had all gone according to plan, the tour’s July 23 San Diego concert would have been followed by a July 24 concert, also at Petco Park, featuring Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer. The latter tour was also postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic. No new dates have been announced, as yet.

Both those now-postponed July concerts at Petco Park were scheduled to take place the same weekend as the 2020 edition of San Diego Comic-Con at the nearby San Diego Convention Center. The organizers of Comic-Con announced in April that they were canceling this year’s edition of the multi-day event because of the pandemic.
