Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard and Poison tour package rumoured to add fourth band on select dates
Former Ratt drummer Bobby Blotzer recently co-hosted an episode of the Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon podcast with rock journalist Mitch Lafon where Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford and Trixter guitarist Steve Brown were interviewed separately.
Lafon mentioned that Mötley Crüe were getting back together and would be going out on tour with Def Leppard and Poison, and apparently a fourth band as he stated (as transcribed by Sleaze Roxx):
“And there is a rumoured fourth band on the understanding that it’s going to be a different opener or different fourth band. You know, none of this has been announced officially but I’m sort of hearing and perhaps wrongly that it might be one band for three or four shows, another band for three. Who knows? We will see if it gets announced. Now, it’s all speculation so if you’re out there in internet land quoting me, make sure that you write that it’s speculation.”
Blotzer was asked for his thoughts on Mötley Crüe getting back together to which he replied: “But you know, Mötley getting together does zero for me. I couldn’t care less personally. But you know, bands get back together after breaking up, I mean, if it makes them happy — awesome. If the fans are happy, that’s what’s going to make them happy. You know, I understand it. But it’s a very exciting tour. I don’t know who’s headlining. I’m sure that Poison is going on first. I don’t know if they’re flip flopping with Leppard or what’s going on first but you know, good news for ’80s genre of metal and hard rock. I love it!”
