Phil Collen says Lep/Motley tour is 50/50 for 2021

Category: Live Reviews

Eddie Trunk had Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen on his SiriusXM Radio show on July 6, 2020 and the topic of the Motley Crue/Def Leppard tour came up.  Phil gave an interesting answer as to whether or not the tour would happen in 2021.  He replied that it was “50/50” and his exact comments were as follows:

“I honestly don’t know, I’d say it’s 50/50.  If everyone does what they are supposed to do then we will be there next Summer, literally, a week from now, next Year we will be out and I’m really looking forward to it, so yeah.  Again, Me and Nikki Sixx talking getting in shape for it, we were like, “How you doin?”, and all of this stuff, it was awesome, and then it had the plug pulled so we actually have a year to look even better so it will be even cooler.  So hopefully, that’s the plan.  It depends.  It’s not us, it’s like when you’re driving, there’s that thing like, it’s not me you have to watch out for it’s every other idiot on the road, so that’s where we are right now so we are ready to go.  It wasn’t just the promotors, that was secondary.  First it was Major League Baseball, we are playing in their buildings so that has to be taken care of first, then the Promotors, and we are down that food chain so we are ready when everyone else is.  Absolutely at the drop of a hat and we’d be there, good to go..I’ll definitely be ready by then for sure.
