Rockers of, ahem, a certain age can relive the glory days of the 1980s with a foursome of classic rockers coming to Vancouver in September.

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

After two summers of delays, stadium tour is finally back on, with dates across the U.S. and Canada, starting in June.

More than one million tickets have already been pre-sold for the tour, and tickets resume sales Feb. 25, including five new dates.

The tour will also makes stops in Toronto and Edmonton.

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

"It's on! We don't think we've ever looked forward more to kicking off a tour than this one. 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 inductees Def Leppard have sold 110 million records and (avert your eyes if you don't want to feel old) have been around for 45 years.

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

Poison's Bret Michaels says: "There are not enough words to thank the three generations of fans for making this such an exciting, record breaking, historical tour with the fastest sell outs in history at these stadiums."
Joan Jett was a female trailblazer in rock and has had eight platinum and gold albums with nine top 40 singles, including the classic I Love Rock 'N' Roll.

Emerging rock band Classless Act will open for the four rock legends.

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