Motley Crue and Def Leppard announce 2023 US stadium shows with Alice Cooper

Motley Crue and Def Leppard have announced a series of US shows as part of a global 2023 stadium tour.

Following a hugely successful run across North America this year, the bands will return to the US – with guest Alice Cooper – for six concerts in August.

“After finally getting back on the road this past summer,” says Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, “we’re beyond thrilled to bring this massive tour to a global audience including some special dates in America!”

"We had an incredible time playing The Stadium Tour in North America this summer and we truly can't wait to take the show around the globe with The WORLD Tour in 2023,”
Motley Crue adds. “Crueheads get ready because we have a few amazing U.S. dates set for you!"

A Citi cardmembers presale runs from Tuesday, December 13 at 10 AM local time until Thursday, December 15 at 10 PM local time, with general public tickets going on sale on Friday, December 16 at 10 AM local time for all shows.

Motley Crue will debut their new touring guitarist, John 5, at a pair of US shows with Def Leppard next February following news that Mick Mars has 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.
