    Joan Jett is awesome live – super tight band powerful and her voice still sounds the same – imo she should be the headliner


    • genesraccoonwig on

      Agree Robert – saw her at Shea Stadium with REM and the Police during the Synchronicity Tour – and she was awesome.

    Having seen Motley Crue on their “farewell (for now)” tour, I witnessed a band whose singer was so morbidly obese and out of shape that he was out of breath and audibly gasping for air before the end of the first song. However, thanks to the magic of pre-recorded backing tracks and background singers the band really kicked ass.

    Considering how svelte Vince looked at the tour announcement, I’m looking forward to more of the same…

    Been reading that Tesla guys wanted to be the opener. With respect to Joan Jett (I think she is great too), but if Tesla was on the bill; a better lineup IMHO. Def Leppard deserves to be THE main headliner, Crue, Poison and then Jett. The Lepps are in the RRHOF for crying out loud. At Coors Field (CO) on 8/30, my neck of the woods. Might have to check it out.

      I agree, Def Leppard should be the headlining band.


    • Rattlehead on

      I agree, Doug. I think Tesla, rather than Joan Jett, would make it a better act lineup.

      I think whoever headlines, Crue or Leppard, will depend on the city performed on the tour. They will perform in San Diego at the end of July, and we plan to attend it. Since Crue is a Los Angeles band, I expect Crue to headline the show. Personally, I would rather see Crue as the headliner, unless Leppard performs songs primarily from their first two albums.

      One thing to add and in all sincerity, is that we must give these bands credit. The fact that virtually everyone is pushing 60, some older, and this Stadium Tour is going to be grueling, so to give it a go is really remarkable. You have two cancer survivors, and Mick Mars with all his physical ailments, man that alone is incredible. So, a tip of the cap to them all! As the Lepps would say, good luck mates.

    I think this is just a ploy by Motley Crue to get into the RRHOF by touring with Def Leppard. They want to demonstrate they are on their level. I believe they are already deserving to be in the Hall, but this is a public relations push. I’m glad Tesla is not opening up for them because then they wouldn’t be coming to my city on February 17th. Very excited for that show.

    I was hoping for Steel Panther , lol.
