Vince Neil said (transcribed by MetalCastle):

“It’s a nice feeling, that so many people want us to get back together. Because we basically broke up five years ago, we basically called it quits and said that it was a good run, it was a lot of fun, okay, we’re done.

So I continued to tour with my solo band up until COVID, and now I’ve had basically almost a year off because of not being able to tour with my solo band. ‘Cause everything got shut down, everything. But it looks like it’s loosening back up.

I have a couple of solo shows coming up in the next couple of months. It’s gonna be fun just to get back and sing a little bit. I’ve never gone this long without performing or singing in my entire life, since I was 16. So it’ll be fun to just get back out there.

A lot of people were pretty bummed out when we decided to retire, basically. The excitement around the tour has just been pretty amazing. We have fans that maybe we didn’t know we had.”
