MÖTLEY CRÜE’s Nikki Sixx “American Idol” Clip Drawing Controversy Over His Failure To Mention “The Stadium Tour”, Is Third Postponement Coming?

MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s bassist Nikki Sixx recently welcomed the judges on American Idol TV show to the legendary Sunset Strip, and a huge controversy has now kicked off over the fact that the Crue’s bassist failed to make mention of his band’s long awaited comeback tour, which has been postponed twice due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“AMERICAN Idol’s judges are being joined by a rock legend. Idol has headed to Los Angeles for the latest round of auditions, and Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx is taking part in the fun.”

During the AI appearance, Nikki Sixx is ‘fake playing’ his bass instrument while the Crue’s “Home Sweet Home” jams over the audio. According to the show’s shoutout online, the knuckleheads at AI apparently don’t realize Sixx plays four strings.. not six.

“The baddest guitar player in Rock & Roll, Nikki Sixx, welcomes Lionel, Luke, and Katy to the Sunset Strip! Join Nikki and Mötley Crüe on the biggest North American tour of 2022! The Stadium Tour with Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett kicks off this June! Grab your seats now!”

Mick Mars says” Hey, remember me? I’m the dead guy who plays guitar for the Crue!”

Fans are worried now more than ever – with only three months remaining before the tour is set to begin –  that the Crue’s long awaited reunion concerts will be pushed back for a third time, as a result of the pandemic or some other reason; the shocking downward spiral of Vince Neil perhaps? Is this a sign that there is something looming that will indeed prevent “The Stadium Tour” from being held until 2023?

Why wouldn’t Sixx take this great opportunity by using the massive AI platform to promote the Crue’s comeback concerts? Either Sixx made a very foolish mistake by not once mentioning “The Stadium Tour”… or he already knows the band’s comeback is going to be postponed again.


Last month, Nikki Sixx claimed that Mötley Crüe is going ahead with the idea of ​​starting their reunion this year. The bassist stated, on his Twitter account: “We are planning, 100%, to go on tour in 2022.”

Also in December, Sixx stated that “The Stadium Tour” could come to Europe in the not too distant future, once it concludes its run in the United States.

“During that period, we started talking more like: ‘How do you see things for Europe?’ ‘You know what? We love Japan. A show there would be cool.’ Motley Crue and Def Leppard. If Poison and Joan Jett stay with us, too. And then there are huge shows in Australia.”

Sixx adds: “And every time another fucking mutation of COVID appears. So we’re like, ‘Okay, we’re going out for America. We have our protocols. We know exactly how we are going to do it. What will happen in 2023? We do not know. We’ve heard that the omicron variant is much more contagious, but it’s also weaker, so if people catch it, it will only give them a headache or stomach ache for a day, especially if they’re vaccinated. So there is talk of something that is positive, that is getting weaker and weaker. So we’re keeping an eye on all the information out there. And about how to take our stadium tour to Europe or Japan. We need the proper security protocols.”

Last October, Sixx stated that Mötley Crüe will start rehearsing in May for the tour with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett. “I started training in December, and now all that’s left is hard work, getting ready and going to rehearsals.”

A recent cancelation of a Vince Neil July 16th solo concert has started to raise eyebrows. Rock critics are beginning to question if the Crue has actually taken The Metal Den‘s advice for employing a “Plan B” by secretly rehiring ex-Crue singer John Corabi, who they are going to use if Neil is not able to perform at the band’s scheduled gigs, due to the singer’s ongoing alcohol rehabilitation difficulties.

Neil has been living incredibly reckless ordering $10,000 bottles of booze almost every night when he goes out for dinner, per a band insider, to the point it is starting to totally restrict his abilities a musician.

Believe it or not, Neil’s twice postponed solo concert on March 25th in Durant, Oklahoma, is being used as a “test performance” for Sixx to determine if Neil is actually in good enough shape at this time for the grueling comeback concerts. Fans will recall Neil fell off the stage at one of his last shows in 2021, and has struggled big time with being able to sing the Crue’s classics properly, even at one time quitting in the middle of a song, because his “voice was gone.”
