PITTSBURGH, PA — For fans of '80s heavy metal, this show would have been the concert to attend in 2020. Legendary bands Def Leppard and Motley Crue were supposed to play PNC Park in August on a co-headlining tour with opening acts that have a lengthy list of hits: Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
The coronavirus outbreak scuttled plans for the tour this year, but the bands on Thursday announced new tour dates for next year. The PNC Park concert is on for July 22, 2021.
Tickets for this year's show will be honored next year.
Def Leppard last played Pittsburgh in June 2018 at PPG Paints Arena. Motley Crue's last appearance here was at First Niagara Pavilion in August 2014.
