JACKSONVILLE, FL. – The Jacksonville Jaguars and ASM Global-Jacksonville announced today that the world’s most iconic and celebrated rock legends will launch their highly anticipated THE STADIUM TOUR in Jacksonville this summer. DEF LEPPARD, MÖTLEY CRÜE, with POISON and JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS will perform at TIAA Bank Field on Thursday, June 18. The tour, which will now consist of 31 shows, has already sold out 25 stadiums in the US while amassing over one million tickets sold to eager fans. THE STADIUM TOUR has added Jacksonville as its official kickoff city for the 2020 summer tour, where each band will bring their electrifying stage shows while performing their stadium-sized anthems. 

In the days leading up to the official tour kickoff on June 18, the Jacksonville Jaguars and ASM Global-Jacksonville are also proud to host multi-day tour rehearsals for THE STADIUM TOUR at both VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena and TIAA Bank Field.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 7 at 10 a.m. at Citi is the official presale credit card for the tour.

Following the huge success of their NETFLIX biopic THE DIRT, Mötley Crüe has seen a massive surge in new audience with fans around the world demanding the band tour again. This led to the band members reuniting and announcing that “Mötley Crüe is back” just recently. While The Dirt caused a meteoric 350% increase in streams of Mötley Crüe’s music across all platforms, with the younger 18-44 demographic representing 64% of the band’s fanbase, most of these new fans have never seen any of the band’s legendary live shows that Crüeheads have relished for close to 4 decades. Mötley Crüe is also celebrating the 30th Anniversary of their #1 charting, 7x Platinum album, DR. FEELGOOD this year.  The band is ready to deliver an over the top stage show packed full of hit songs.

2019 ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES Def Leppard are one of the most important forces in rock music. Over the past year, the icons closed out a sold-out worldwide tour including a North American stadium run & headlining the UK’s Download Festival to 90k screaming fans. Def Leppard’s star continues to rise and prevail. The band has amassed a staggering 2.5 billion streams since releasing their music digitally last year. Def Leppard’s influential career crosses generations and includes numerous hit singles and ground-breaking multi-platinum albums—including two of the best-selling albums of all time, Pyromania and Hysteria, both of which are certified Diamond (10x platinum).

POISON will be bringing a rocking, real, and relevant no holds barred thunderous live show to The Stadium Tour this summer with the all original lineup of Bret Michaels, C.C. DeVille, Bobby Dall and Rikki Rockett. POISON will be unleashing an onslaught of hit after hit songs in its set. Friday the 13th will be an historic date for two reasons: stadium tour tickets will go on sale, and POISON front man, Bret Michaels will receive the Humanitarian of the Year award to air on the CW network the same night.  Michaels and POISON are known for bringing a unique style of passionate high energy, sincere gratitude and a positive attitude to all their performances.  Michaels engages all the fans and makes it an absolute epic ride of true live music. Together With C.C. Deville on guitar, Bobby Dall on bass, and Rikki Rockett on drums POISON will rock the stadium with a chemistry that will bring a big summer mega party vibe.  And Michaels promises to give 1000 % on the stage as the hotter it gets the harder POISON promises to rock!!!

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Joan Jett & The Blackhearts are no strangers to stadium sized shows having toured with The Who, Green Day and the Foo Fighters in recent years. Jett celebrated the story of her life in a critically acclaimed 2018 documentary Bad Reputation which showcased all the female firepower of her life and musical career.
