Disagree on Too Fast for Love. I think it's a vastly under rated classic. I like a few Crue albums, but I hold that among the all time greats from anyartist. The odd production adds to it, for me. I love the raw sound of it. Great pop-punk-glam songs and I really really live the way Mick's guitars and Tommy's drums sound.

The retirement is apparently over as Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and Poison are about to announce a summer stadium tour for 2020.  I really am curious what kind of draw this is.  Major arenas sure, but stadiums?  The top two bands can draw almost 20,000 each and Poison maybe 10,000, but a lot of that is cross-over fans who would be at all 3 shows.  Can this draw more than 20,000-25,000 combined?  They need double that.

For guys like me who are stuck in the 80's, thats a pretty good triple bill.

It's a strong bill for sure however, I don't think that in 2020 this is going to sell out baseball stadiums. They would do bang up business if they kept it to sheds between June and August. Not only that, but Poison and Def Leppard tour every single year so there is that oversaturation thing going on. Expect this to be heavily papered.

I like all the bands but Vince Neil just can't go anymore AT ALL.  Poison will probably play 30 minutes and even as a headliner that's about as long as Bret Michaels is good for these days.  Def Leppard is really the only act that can still deliver at that level.

Supposedly Live Nation made this contingent on Vince losing 50 lbs. and Tommy going to rehab.

Y'know now I'm starting to wonder if the stadium gigs might work out. A guy over at Metal Sludge posted the boxscores for last years Def Leppard/Journey tour and they did fantastic. I would think that the combination of Crue and Poison would rival Journey as far as fanbase is concerned. Here are the numbers.

Hershey, PA - Hershypark Stadium - 26,753 / 27, 124
Toronto, ON - Rogers Centre - 31,429 / 45,803
Atlanta, GA - SunTrust Park - 32,801 / 32,801
Detroit, MI - Comerica Park - 31,383 / 31,383
Chicago, IL - Wrigley Field - 35,528 / 35,528
Denver, CO - Coors Field - 44,928 / 44,928
Minneapolis, MN - Target Field - 37,960 / 37,960
Boston, MA - Fenway Park - 34,359 / 34,359
St. Louis, MO - Busch Stadium - 31,865 / 33,420
San Francisco, CA - AT&T Park - 35,617 / 35,617
San Diego, CA - Petco Park - 34,300 / 37,999

He also stated they did two shows at the Los Angeles Forum.

I saw Def Leppard and Journey at Prudential Center.  I didn't realize they did stadiums too.

And if that doesn't happen they're going to cancel and refund everyone's money?  Empty threat even if true.  Summer is a long way away and no one is keeping Vince away from the Krispy Kremes the entire long, cold winter.  

Vince was okay-ish on that Farewell Tour, but then more than a year later I saw him solo at a festival (with a setlist of 100% Crue songs) and it was as bad a live performance as I've ever seen.  It was like 60 outside and he was dripping sweat with a beat red face singing one of every 5 words (instead of his usual every third word).  He just looked and sounded AWFUL.  People were walking in droves out since it was a festival and there were so many other bands that had played.  His drummer, the young guy from Slaughter, was putting on a Young Bucks match behind his kit to keep the show moving, and Neil just had nothing left.  It was Fat Elvis mixed with drunk Stephen Pearcy.  Just pitiful.  They can't let that happen headlining stadiums.

For that summer 2018 tour, Def Leppard and Journey had Cheap Trick as the opening act and got the best review of the Minneapolis show in the paper although both of the headliners got good marks too, if not A+ grades. The big thing was the audience loved it and people went home happy. A Def Leppard, Motley Crue, and Poison tour would probably do very well.

How is the health of Mick Mars these days?

Has he done much since The Crue went of "hiatus"?

I really wonder about Mick's fitness for a tour like this. Supposedly he was well into recording a solo album and it was supposed to be heavy and bluesy and all that shit. The guy truly seems like he has both feet planted firmly in the grave.

I was looking forward to Mick's solo album. Hopefully he continues to work on it and doesn't die before he finishes it.

I've seen all these guys multiple times, this tour does nothing for me. Sad thing is the Black Crowes* (scab Crowes) are touring for the first time in 5 years, they're one of my favorite bands ever but I really don't care to see them with just the Robinson brothers and a bunch of backing players. Luckily The Doobie Brothers announced a big tour for next year with the classic guys and Michael McDonald, THAT I will pay to see..

I thought that Mick Mars died in 2002 and they've just been propping him up on stage with a guitar ever since.  If you are correct with him being alive, he has to be at least 172 years old by now.  He looks worse than that South Dakota old man that says "Meth - I'm on it".
