Following the release of their Netflix biopic, "The Dirt," this past March, Mötley Crüe this year celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1989 multiplatinum album, Dr. Feelgood.
Coming off a world tour and Las Vegas residency earlier this year, Def Leppard now return to the road on The Stadium Tour. The band, which has released two of the best-selling albums of all time via Pyromania (1983) and Hysteria (1987), was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 2019.
Poison hit the stage with the band's full original lineup, including lead singer Bret Michaels, who received the Humanitarian Of The Year award at this year's Hollywood Christmas Parade, which airs Friday, Dec. 13, on The CW. The group is best known for the '80s chart-topper, "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."
In addition to being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 2015, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts—led by the eponymous frontwoman and founding member of '70s all-girl rock band, The Runaways—were nominated for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal for their 1988 song, "I Hate Myself For Loving You," at the 31st GRAMMY Awards, held in 1989. The group's 1982 hit single, "I Love Rock 'n' Roll," was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame in 2016. Most recently, Jett was the subject of the 2018 documentary, "Bad Reputation."
The general on-sale for The Stadium Tour 2020 begins Friday, Dec. 13, at 10am via the Live Nation website; check local listings for details.
