In an interview with SiriusXM, rock icon Joan Jett shared that she “would not feel comfortable” touring across the country under the present circumstances.
Jett was slated to accompany Def Leppard, Poison, and Motley Crue on The Stadium Tour, which was scheduled to kick off on June 18 in Jacksonville, Florida, and is yet to be canceled or postponed to a future date.
“I wouldn’t feel comfortable putting the band or my crew in that position,” Jett said. “I don’t really have that right to mess with their lives like that.”
While responding to a fan’s question about the status of the tour, Motley Crue revealed that even they are awaiting news on the topic and that they hope “to have an official update to everyone by June 1 outlining exactly how we will proceed.”
“I’m not saying it’s an easy decision. I know people are struggling all over the country with what to do and how to do it. Of course, I wanna play. As soon as we can do it, let’s figure out a way to do it,” Jett said.
She added, “I’ve heard there’s some ideas with drive-ins, like a drive-in movie, where you can still see live music and you’re in your car. That’s a step, and that’s a step I’d enjoy taking. But it’s still not people together. And that’s gonna take a while.”
