Stadium tour comes to SunTrust Park in August

Motley Crue is back from the land of faux farewell tours.

The “Dr. Feelgood” rockers – who in 2015 announced an official end to touring with a supposed legal document that they destroyed last month – will team with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts for a stadium tour.

The bands will hit SunTrust Park on Aug. 9. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Dec. 13 via www.livenation.com. A pre-sale for Citi cardholders is available from 10 a.m. Dec. 10 through 10 p.m. Dec. 12 (check www.citientertainment.com for details).

Motley Crue last played Atlanta in August 2015. Def Leppard, a frequent presence in Atlanta, performed at SunTrust Park with Journey in summer 2018, the same year Poison took the stage in Alpharetta.

The inclusion of Jett is a boon for fans, as she will also play the Shaky Knees Music Festival, May 1-3 in Atlanta's Central Park.
