VINNY APPICE Doesn't Expect DEF LEPPARD's Rumored Tour With MÖTLEY CRÜE To Affect LAST IN LINE's Activities

In a new interview with Shawn SixX of Boston's WAAF radio station, legendary drummer Vinny Appice said that he doesn't expect the rumored 2020 stadium tour by MÖTLEY CRÜE, DEF LEPPARD and POISON to have a significant impact on the touring activities of LAST IN LINE, the band he shares with DEF LEPPARD guitarist Vivian Campbell.

"Well, yeah, but we've been doing this for years," he said (hear audio below). "They went out with JOURNEY. So it's no big deal. I won't even comment on what I know about that [rumored 2020 tour]. And a tour like that doesn't last as long as you would think, because just think about all those guys together. You know what I mean? It's most likely… It could be — who knows? — just a summer or whatever; play festivals and get it over with. They might do three shows and then they break up again and then the tour gets all screwed up. Who knows?

"We've been dealing with the schedules [for years]," he continued. "I'm going to Europe in April, because I thought Viv was busy, but then he's got a couple of more weeks off in April. But I can't cancel my tour. So we deal with each other's schedule, so it's not a problem… Phil [Soussan, LAST IN LINE bassist] does things in Vegas at the '[Raiding The] Rock Vault' show. Andy [Freeman, LAST IN LINE vocalist] is doing a little show in Vegas too. So we work around everything. And that gives us a little bit more time to do our own thing and then keep this going at the same time."

LAST IN LINE released its sophomore album, "II", in February. A follow-up effort is tentatively due next year.
