    Now that’s a lineup but closest venue to me is Philly

    I would like to see the show, but I’m not traveling out of state to see an ex-retired band. I had a feeling they wouldn’t come to my state.


  • Harold Taint on

    I would be interested in seeing Leppard and Joan Jett. But it is a hard pass on Motley Crue.

      I’m with you 100%.


  • Tyger of Pan Tang on

    Leppard is rightly making a big deal about using no backing tracks, so I don’t see how they can allow the Crue to make more money or go on after them. Vince came by my town this summer, and I refused to pay for karoake-fest.

    And if Leppard does have to bite the bullet because Motley is using the Netflix popularity as leverage, Phil Collen should stand next to Vince on stage. That should end any doubt as to who’s keeping the spirit of the 80s alive, and who crashed and burned a long time ago.

      Tyger,

      It says it is a co-headline tour, so it may be the case that they will switch on and off who will close the show.
