10 highs and lows from Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard at Comerica Park

A reunited Mötley Crüe closed out a mini-marathon of rock and roll at Comerica Park on Sunday, off seven hours of fist-pumping stadium anthems before a crowd of some 37,000 fans on a stage that earlier in the day hosted fellow hard finishing rockers Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.


Here are some of the highs and lows from Sunday’s show.

High: Bang for the audience’s buck

The Stadium Tour, as it is uncreatively titled, packs quite a wallop, with four high-powered ’80s rock outfits driving the nostalgic, devil horns-worthy extravaganza. Sunday’s show was headlined by the Crüe, back from the dead after signing a document that supposedly barred them from ever touring again after 2015 (ha!), but the tour is flip-flopping between Def Leppard and the Crüe as closers. (Def Leppard is the one you want headlining your show, more on that soon.) The tour was announced back in 2019 and was due to hit Comerica Park in August 2020, and arrived Sunday after a pair of COVID delays.
