Motley Crue to debut new guitarist John 5 at new US dates with Def Leppard

Motley Crue will debut their new touring guitarist, John 5, at a pair of newly-announced shows with Def Leppard next February.

The February 10 and 11 dates at the Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena in Atlantic City, NJ will see the bands perform in the intimate 7,000 capacity venue a week before the classic rock acts launch the 2023 world stadium tour in Mexico City on February 18.

Presales for the Atlantic City shows are now underway with tickets going on sale to the general public on Friday, December 2.

Last month, Motley Crue announced that Mick Mars had confirmed his retirement from touring as he continues to deal with Ankylosing spondylitis – a type of arthritis that affects the spine and worsens over time – which the rocker has lived with since his late teens.

“I’m honored to carry on Mick’s legacy,” shared John 5 last month, “and am looking forward to playing these songs.”

John 5’s career includes extended stints with Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie, among others.
