Update: Earlier today, Mötley Crüe announced that its highly anticipated summer tour with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts would be postponed until July 3 of 2021.

With COVID-19 killing off the summer's concert season, the jaunt featuring a reunited Mötley Crüe was one of the last still on the books, but the band tweeted out that that the dates, including a stop at FirstEnergy Stadium, would be rescheduled and that original tickets would be honored.

The band promises that refunds will be available.

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

Original Post 12/18/2019: Tickets were snapped up so quickly for the first leg of the stadium tour featuring Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe, Poison and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts that the bands have announced additional dates, including a July 3 stop at FirstEnergy Stadium.

“The word on the street was that fans were overly excited about this stadium tour even before it was announced ... well it’s out there now, and it keeps getting bigger & bigger ... this is going to be a MONSTER of a tour!” says Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott in a statement.

Presales begin on Monday, Jan. 6, and tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 10.
