See the live event created by Def Leppard indicating the band & Motley Crue will be touring UK and EU around May/June 2023.
Recent Motley Crue tour updates mentioned the same places as Joe in the new video – South America, Mexico, and Europe.
Another update from a Vince Neil interview suggestedcould be played on The Stadium Tour in 2023 and 2024 (with the USA/Canada getting a second run of shows).
A number of high-profile rock festivals are due to make announcements soon about their 2023 line-ups.
Joe said back in July that festival shows would be mixed in with solo stadium dates in 2023 in UK/Europe which could well include previously played events like Download and Sweden Rock etc.
In a new video posted by Def Leppard on their official YouTube channel (see below), singer Joe Elliott revealed their plan to tour further along Motley Crue by next year.
“Captain’s log: star date September 9, 2022, Las Vegas, Nevada, the last night of the Stadium Tour, so far, because this is show 36 and it is all booked, but it has been very big.”
“When something goes this well, there is always the opportunity to expand. We have already promised everybody in Europe, specifically in Great Britain, that we will bring it over there next year, which we are, but we will also take it to South America and hopefully Australia, Japan, and New Zealand.
”There is a certain amount of melancholy for two reasons. One: it is the last night of the tour, and two: her majesty the Queen has just passed away yesterday. All British citizens are very sad about the fact that she is gone, but God bless her for being in our lives since we were born, but we move on. So, it is the case of God Bless the Queen, and God Save the King.”
