Rescheduled dates announced for Motley Crue/Def Leppard, Rod Stewart and other Atlanta concerts moving to 2021

As the lost summer of music continues, several artists have announced rescheduled dates for 2021.

The Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett stadium outing will return to Truist Park on Aug. 15. That tour will now launch June 19 in Nashville.

At Ameris Bank Amphitheatre, the Aug. 1 Kidz Bop show has been rescheduled for July 11 and Rod Stewart, originally set for Aug. 22, will now play Aug. 13 (Cheap Trick is not confirmed to remain on the bill in 2021). Also, Disturbed’s “The Sickness” 20th anniversary tour with Staind and Bad Wolves will move from July 21 to July 10 at the Alpharetta venue. 

All previously purchased tickets will be honored; those awaiting refunds will receive an instructional email from Ticketmaster.

The amphitheater shows moved to next season solidify the reality that despite Gov. Brian Kemp’s directive that live music venues can reopen on July 1, music fans are unlikely to see any large-scale shows this year as most performers opt to nix all plans until 2021.
