Def Leppard guitarist cautiously optimistic about 2021 stadium tour

A lot can happen in a years time, especially with rock-n-roll bands

Phil Collen of Def Leppard says the chances their postponed 2020 tour with Motley Crue, Poison and Joan Jett, rescheduled for next year, will actually happen, is about “50-50.”

During an interview with Trunk Nation, Collen said “If everyone does what they are suppose to do, then we will be there next summer.”

But we all know rockstars can easily find all sorts of distractions to keep from doing what they’re “supposed” to be doing.

Collen went on to say, he and Motley Crue bassist, Nikki Sixx, began working out and getting in shape for this summer’s tour before the COVID-19 pandemic led to its cancellation. He said they’re happy they now have another full year to “look even better.”

In fact, Phil has started a 30 fitness challenge you can follow on Def Leppard’s official youtube channel.

If all goes according to the plan, the postponed tour will kick off June 19, 2021 in Nashville.
