What rock concerts are coming to British Columbia this fall?

Older rockers can relive the glory days of the 1980s with a quartet of classic rockers coming to Vancouver in September.

Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts perform September 2 at BC Place.

After two summers of delays, the stadium tour is finally back, with dates in the United States and Canada, starting in June.

Over one million tickets have already been pre-sold for the tour, and ticket sales resume on February 25, including five new dates.

The tour will also make stops in Toronto and Edmonton.

In 2021, Motley Crue celebrated their 40th band anniversary.

“Let’s go! We think we’ve never been more excited to kick off a tour than this. We can’t wait to finally see all the fans across North America again. Get ready for a wild ride this summer!” the band said in a joint statement.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Def Leppard has sold 110 million records and (look away if you don’t want to feel old) has been around for 45 years.

Their Pyromania and Hysteria albums are among the best-selling albums of all time, both going 10 times platinum.

Bret Michaels of Poison said: “There are not enough words to thank the three generations of fans for making this historic tour such an exciting record with the fastest sales in history at these stadiums. “

Joan Jett was a rock pioneer and had eight platinum and gold albums with nine top 40 singles, including the classic I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll.

Up-and-coming rock band Classless Act will open for the four rock legends.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on February 25 at livenation.com.
