The former ROB ZOMBIE and MARILYN MANSON axeman joined CRÜE as the replacement for founding guitarist Mick Mars.
John 5 was one of the people who commented on Nikki‘s post, writing: “I’m more excited can’t wait buddy”.
Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard will be an “intimate show” at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida on Sunday, March 12th.
Pre-sales start today (January 10th) at 10 a.m., with general tickets going on sale this Friday (January 13th) at 10 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster.
Mötley Crüe’s exciting 2023 tour is approaching.
After it was announced that Mick Mars would not be with them, fans started asking who would take his place, and they soon got their answer: John 5. Judging by his recent tweet, Nikki Sixx seems especially excited to be working with John 5 on this tour. Crüeheads, buckle up because Nikki Sixx’s excitement is a splendid omen for the upcoming shows!
“Talking to John 5 about how excited I am to finally get into rehearsals and then get to these first shows in Atlantic City,” exclaimed Nikki about hitting the road again, this time with a new guitarist with whom he has been friends for years. “Then off to Latin America and the rest of the world.”
