Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen admitted that he’s still unsure if the band’s massive tour with Motley Crue will play next summer.

In an interview on Trunk Nation, Collen spoke about the postponed “Stadium Tour,” which will also feature Poison, and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Collen spoke of the chances for the tour to actually launch in 2021: “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. . . Me and Nikki Sixx were talking (about) getting in shape for it. We were, like, ‘How you doin’?’ and all of this stuff, and it was awesome. And then we had the plug pulled. So, we actually have got a year to look even better, so it will be even cooler.”

As of now, the Stadium Tour is scheduled to hit Wrigley Field August 29th, 2021.  Hopefully that doesn’t change!
