A legendary pioneer in the glam metal scene, Mötley Crüe announced Monday, Nov. 18, that it will reunite for a 2020 world tour.

Along with news of the reunion, the band also announced that a new album could be in the works.

The band said they will be partaking in an American stadium tour along with Def Leppard and Poison.

Sophomore Caden Palmer is highly anticipating the new tour.

“I am very excited for it,” Palmer said. “I cant wait for them to play again.”

Palmer plans to attend one of the shows if the tour makes its way to Michigan.

“I will definitely be buying tickets for one of their shows and will be going if they come to Michigan,” Palmer said.

Announcements of the reunion began in September 2018 and became all but certain when the Mötley Crüe released four new songs for the biopic “The Dirt” in March 2019.

These four original pieces were the first batch of original material since Mötley Crüe’s 2008 studio album “Saints of Los Angeles.”

Mötley Crue is one of the most successful rock acts of all time, selling over 100 million copies worldwide.

Over its career, Mötley Crüe earned nominations for three Grammy awards. The band also won the title of 1991’s Favorite Hard Rock Album with its “Dr. Feelgood” at the American Music Awards.

Many fans around the globe are hopeful and excited to see what the upcoming reunion will bring.
