Nikki Sixx says Mötley Crüe have more stadium shows on the books: '120 next year and the year after that'

'How can you say no to stadiums?' Tommy Lee adds

Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil recently let it drop that the band has more U.S. shows on the horizon, telling the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “We’re far from being over. When we come back in ‘24, we’re going to do it all over again.”

Now, in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Nikki Sixx has let it slip that not only are there more dates happening, but there are a lot more dates happening. And like this past summer tour with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett, they’ll take place in stadiums.

“ I remember getting the phone call from management, and I was, like, 'No,' " Sixx told ET, explaining that, following Mötley Crüe’s 2014-2015 Final Tour, he truly believed the band was done. "And they go, 'You haven't even heard what I have to say.' ”

Sixx continued that he and his band mates “were friends, and we were fine and everything's good. We're just like, 'No, it’s a lot of work.'

“And [management was] like, 'No, not eight arenas – eight stadiums,' and I was like, 'Let me call Tommy.'

"I was like, 'Hey, dude, they're talking about us touring,' and he's like, 'No.' Because we wanted to be — stand by what we said, and then it was 16 and 36, which we just entered our 36th stadium, and there's, what, another 120 next year and the year after that, so, we're grateful we said yes."

Added Lee, "How can you say no to stadiums?"

For his part, Neil also told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that while Motley will continue to play live, a return the studio is not in the cards. “We are strictly a touring band,” he said.
