The gravity-defying drummer Tommy Lee is counting the days until the recently postponed Motley Crue Stadium Tour kicks off.
Lee could barely contain his excitement in a recent interview with Knotfest.com as he shared behind-the-scenes updates of Crue's tour preparation before the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Alls I can tell you is, once again, be careful what you wish for," he hinted. "We take it seriously, and what you can pull off in an arena, I think we’ve pulled off pretty much everything you could possibly ever even f***ing think of. So now we get to play with a f***ing ginormous stadium that has no roof on it. I’m just telling you right now: the production… And it’s still there — it’s just put away in a couple of giant warehouses. But, dude, can I just say it’s f***ing ridiculous."
Originally scheduled to launch in a few weeks, The Stadium Tour is on hold until sometime in 2021, a day Lee continues to dream about when the coronavirus pandemic subsides.
"I want to be on stage when that day comes and it's okay for a f***ing stadium to be filled with people going fucking crazy for the first time," he said. "Dude, that's where I wanna be when this is over. People say, 'What do you wanna do when this is all kind of over?' That's what I wanna do. I wanna be on stage. Because that energy? Can you imagine?"
When the time comes, the massive stadium tour will mark Crue's first live dates since its 2014-2015 'Farewell Tour.' The upcoming mega-tour will mark the first time that the band has hit the road along with Poison, Def Leppard and Joan Jett.
