Motley Crue and Def Leppard kicked off their anticipated and twice-postponed “Stadium Tour” with Poison, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Classless Act. on Thursday (June 16) in Atlanta. For fans unable to attend, the bands’ setlists from the show have been made available.
The Stadium Tour, jointly announced in 2019 by Motley Crue and Def Leppard, was initially to take place in 2020. It was moved to 2021 after COVID-19 emerged, and again to this year because of the pandemic.
Now, however, the tour is rockin’ along, but Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee had to be replaced part-way through Crue’s set due to an injury he sustained prior to the tour’s start. With four broken ribs to contend with, he powered through five songs before being replaced by Ozzy Osbourne drummer Tommy Clufetos. Lee insists he’ll play as many songs as he can each night before relinquishing his drum kit to Clufetos as the tour continues.
See the setlists for Def Leppard (who closed out the night), Motley Crue and Poison below.
It’s currently unknown how much Motley Crue’s and Def Leppard’s sets will change as the tour continues across America this summer. But thanks to contributors at Setlist.fm, listeners can at least peruse each act’s songs from opening night at Atlanta’s Trust Park. Are they missing any tunes you want to hear on the Stadium Tour?
Last year, Motley Crue lead singer Vince Neil returned to performing after falling and breaking his ribs during a solo show. Crue reportedly sold the rights to their song catalog for $150 million around the same time. The L.A. glam icons’ latest studio material is the four recordings they contributed to the soundtrack of their 2019 biopic, The Dirt.
Earlier this month, Def Leppard announced a signature gin and issued a mobile matching game for iOS and Android called Def Leppard – Let’s Rock It! Last month, the English hard rockers released Diamond Star Halos, the first Def Leppard studio album since 2015.
