Mötley Crüe, Def LeppardPoison and Joan Jett's North American stadium tour won't be happening this summer, the artists announced on Monday (June 1).

"We wanted to continue to communicate with our fans and update you with valid information as it becomes available. The official decision has been made to move all 2020 North American stadium tour dates into the summer of 2021," the four iconic rock bands said in a joint statement on social media. "The new stadium dates are being rescheduled. Your tickets will be honored for all postponed shows and refund policy information will be made available shortly. Stay tuned, be safe and we will see you next year. - Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison & Joan Jett and the Blackhearts."

The run of 30 dates was originally scheduled to kick off in just two weeks, with the first show slated for June 18 at Jacksonville, Fla.'s TIAA Bank Field. Inspired in part by the success of Mötley Crüe Netflix biopic The Dirt, the stadium tour was meant to run through the entire summer, hitting major cities including Miami, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Detroit before wrapping up Sept. 5 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. (Tuk Smith & The Restless Hearts were also slated as the opening act for the North American jaunt.)
