Def Leppard’s Joe Elliot Want to Prove Critics Wrong With Summer Stadium Tour With 80’s Acts Poison and Motley Crue
The members of Def Leppard, Motley Crue and Poison attended a press conference this week in Hollywood to discuss their upcoming 2020 summer tour called, The Stadium Tour, which will also feature Joan Jett and the Blackhearts on the bill. As reported by Rolling Stone, Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott explained that the tour will prove the ’80s aren’t mockable.
“You just put those four names on a piece of paper and look at ’em, whichever way ’round they look at it, it’s a big statement really,” the vocalist said. “And you know, the ’80s get mocked a lot. There is a lot of people that still think of the ’80s as a mockable decade, and we’re about to prove that it’s not.”
“It’s last man standing to a point, maybe, but we have survived… You can sit and analyze it all you like, but at the end of the day, if the songs are still getting played on the radio, there’s a reason for that. It’s because they were good songs,” Elliott affirmed, adding that there’s a potential the tour could expand into the following year if the demand is high enough.
Joan Jett was not at the press conference, but Rolling Stone notes that her name was mentioned frequently, emphasizing her importance to the tour. See a photo from the meeting below.

When Guns N’ Roses released Appetite For Destruction in 1987, no one could have predicted the impact it would have on rock music.

Fuelled by a detailed chronological narration splitted into several time jumps, Victory or Death mainly focuses on the technical and musical aspects related to Appetite For Destruction, but also aims to investigate the background of what can be considered, in a way, the greatest debut album of all time, whose inviolability can be compared to that of other masterpieces such as Dark Side Of The Moon or Led Zeppelin IV. The volume includes a brief guide to the 20 ideal post-Appetite records, carefully selected by the author himself.
