Nonpoint drummer Robb Rivera discussed Vince Neil’s recent poor performance, and Motley Crue’s 2022 tour, with Sofa King Cool.
“I feel bad for Vince. Motley Crue is such a great band. He’s got a year to get it together for [the 2022 start of Crue’s ‘The Stadium Tour’ with Def Leppard and Poison]. And it’s sad, but I still love Motley Crue regardless. I know he’s had some struggles, and getting older, stuff like that, it happens. Not everyone can be a Rob Halford, or like Ronnie James Dio before he passed — he was still singing at a high level. You have to take care of yourself. I don’t know Vince personally, but I hope he takes the right steps. ‘Cause I know that Def Leppard and Motley Crue together is gonna be an amazing tour. Anybody who lived that era, it’s gonna be like high school all over again.”
“The Stadium Tour” was originally scheduled to take place last summer but ended up being pushed back to 2021, and then to 2022, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Motley Crue manager Allen Kovac told Fox Business in December 2019 that “some of” the members had hired trainers to get in shape.
“Some of them are working with a trainer, some of them are working with a nutritionist to make themselves the best they can be. The greatest insecurity for an artist is: Is anyone going to care about my music? Is anyone going to buy a ticket? We were in November  when the discussions were happening, and these guys were already into regimens of how they get ready for a tour.”
Kovac said about Neil, “Let’s see what Vince sings like and looks like when the tour goes out.”
