Sixx tells Variety the leak ruined a well-organised announcement, planned for Wednesday, December 04 as part of Stray Cats star Slim Jim Phantom's SiriusXM's Volume radio show.
"We would have announced it here, the way it should have been," Sixx says. "It was announced by The Black Crowes' manager... unfortunately, but that doesn't affect our stadium tour."
"The Stadium Tour", which will also feature Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, kicks off on July 7, 2020 at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium.
It will mark Motley Crue's first live dates since the rockers wrapped their farewell tour on New Year's Eve, 2015.
