Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen says that he believes it is a 50/50 chance that this year’s postponed Stadium Tour with Motley Crue, Poison and Joan Jett will happen next summer.

Collen was asked if he is confident the tour will actually happen in 2021, and he responded, “I honestly don’t know. I’d say it’s 50/50. If everyone does what they are supposed to do, then we will be there next summer. literally a week from now, next year, we’ll be out there. I’m really looking forward to it.

He continued, “It depends. It’s not us. It’s like when you’re driving. It’s that thing – it’s not me; you have to watch out for every other idiot on the road. So that’s where we are right now. But we are ready to go.”

Phil also discussed why it took so long to postpone this year’s trek. He said, “It wasn’t just the promoters actually, that was secondary. First off, it was Major League Baseball. We’re playing in their buildings, so that has to be taken care of first, then the promoters. And then we’re down that food chain. So, we are ready for when everyone else is. Absolutely, at the drop of a hat, we’ll be there, good to go. I’ll definitely be ready by then, for sure.”
