Nikki Sixx on Why David Lee Roth Turned Down Spot on ‘Stadium Tour’
The Stadium Tour, even though it’s been rescheduled multiple times due to the ongoing pandemic, is still one of the most highly-anticipated tours. The lineup is already stacked with Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, but it almost featured David Lee Roth.
So, why did DLR turn down the opportunity to join the tour? Sixx said Roth told him, “I don’t open for bands that I influenced.” (Yikes!)
Speaking of Sixx and the Stadium tour, the Crue bassist recently expressed how he has no regrets about the tour being postponed until 2022.
Sixx shared a graphic to his Instagram that read, “I’m so happy we decided to not tour during this pandemic…….100%.” He added in the caption, “Not a hard decision to make when so many people’s lives are at risk. I MISS IT ‘REALLY’ BAD AND CAN’T WAIT TO HIT THE ROAD IN 2022.”
