What is Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx up to during the worldwide Civid-Pandemic and now that The Stadium Tour has been postponed to 2021?

The following message was posted on Sixx‘s Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):

“The 2 places I’ve felt closest to God is in Alaska and Wyoming. Being relocated in Wyoming most of the time,I am feeling reconnected to some new creativity already. Every now and again in life you need to rethink your purpose here. Right now I am here to reset, restart and recreate. I am working on a book, a musical and awaiting a world tour with @motleycrue but as we all know It’s the simple stuff that really inspires us, at least for me it is. These mountains,the wide open spaces, the people and the wildlife is grounding to me. I don’t need fire, unfortunately it burns constantly inside me, what I need is a new purpose to apply the fire to. Really excited about the future but no time like the present to look back and reflect. I am not running away from anything,I am running head-on towards something new…”

Back in mid-September 2019, Billboard reported after interviewing Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx, drummer Tommy Lee and guitarist Mick Mars about their respective upcoming projects:

“He’s adapting his best-selling memoir The Heroin Diaries into a musical which is set to launch in April 2020. Someone who was known for bucking authority and engaging in endless debauchery back in the ’80s, Sixx is now advocating for awareness of opioid abuse and the dangers of excess in partnership with many institutions, and in a different format than what fans would expect.”

Mötley Crüe were supposed to embark on the much anticipated The Stadium Tour along with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts last month for most of the summer but the tour got postponed to 2021 due to the worldwide Covid pandemic.
