CLEVELAND — Editor's note: Video in the player above was originally published in an unrelated story about the 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees.
If you are among the excited concert fans waiting to see Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Joan Jett and Poison take over FirstEnergy Stadium, you're going to have to wait even longer than originally anticipated.
That's because the bands have announced their hotly anticipated joint tour has been delayed entirely until 2022 -- including Cleveland's stop, which is now slated to take place Thursday, July 14. That's more than two years after the concert was originally supposed to happen on July 3, 2020, which was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.
Motley Crue posted the following message to their fans on Facebook about the stadium tour delay:
To all our loyal fans, we wanted to let you know that we learned today that the tour is getting moved to 2022. This is the only way to ensure that we can play ALL of the dates for ALL of you who have purchased tickets. We appreciate you hanging in there and can’t wait to get back on stage and bring The Stadium Tour to all of our fans.
It is going to be one for the history books!
