It has been two long years since we announced The Stadium Tour to start in the summer of 2020 and it’s finally here. I cannot express enough my gratitude and undying love for the fans, the bands, the crews, the catering personnel, the production staff as well as all of the management teams, publicists, all the promoters at Live Nation and the entire village that have helped to make this the number one tour in North America.
I want to take this moment to express how awesome it is to share the stage with bands that I love; Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Classless Act and especially my band and friends in Poison.
The truth is from the moment I hit that stage till the last note I cannot stop smiling but the real truth is all day long I am ready to rock and after we are done stay and watch the others and I said this at the very beginning of this tour when we did our whole press campaign if I was not on the stage with these bands would’ve bought a ticket immediately for this concert…I doubt you will ever see this lineup again in the stadiums… Every band on this stadium tour brings something unique in their style and performance but the one thing we all share in common is our desire to be out there and most importantly bringing all of our best songs to that stage… There is no doubt that each band wants to bring their best show forward and all the combined great years of hits but I need every fan out there to know this… none of us in any of these bands got here without you…thank you for all the great years I hope you all enjoyed these 10 or so photos and defining moments from my personal picture collection from the first half of the stadium tour giving you a little All-access pass and hope you as the fans have enjoyed this as much as I have you rock my world… Here is a toast to the rest of this summer and wait till you see what I got for 2023…

You never know who I am going to invite to the Parti-Gras.
Having such a great time hanging with all the other bands. I love getting along with everybody and having fun. Honored to share the stage with bands I admire…Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Classless Act and of course Poison.
My family rocks the road, loves music and always brings a smile to my face.
The look on my face in these four photos says it all. Laughing, singing, smiling and partying with the fans.
Solo shows between the Stadium dates in front of incredible, record-breaking crowds crossing three generations of rock, pop and country fans.
I joined Eric Church at the Barefoot Country Festival in Wildwood New Jersey and as the son of a veteran, honored the men and women of our armed forces, first responders, frontline workers, teachers and utility workers in front of the record-breaking crowd. It was awesome.
