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.”
Earlier MÖTLEY CRÜE and DEF LEPPARD announced two U.S. shows for February 2023.
The two bands, who recently teamed up for the mega-successful “The Stadium Tour”, will play at the 7,000-capacity Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena in Atlantic City, New Jersey on February 10 and February 11.
Presales for the Atlantic City dates begin on Tuesday (November 29), with tickets going on sale to the general public on Friday, December 2.
John 5 has joined MOTLEY CRUE as their new guitarist.
This was made official by the band in a new statement, saying:
“While change is never easy, we accept Mick‘s decision to retire from the band due to the challenges with his health. We have watched Mick manage his Ankylosing Spondylitis for decades and he has always managed it with utmost courage and grace.”
“To say ‘enough is enough’ is the ultimate act of courage. Mick‘s sound helped define MÖTLEY CRÜE from the minute he plugged in his guitar at our very first rehearsal togther. The rest, as they say, is history. We’ll continue to honor his musical legacy.
“We will carry out Mick‘s wish and continue to tour the world as planned in 2023. No doubt will it take an absolutely outstanding musician to fill Mick‘s shoes so we are grateful that our good friend, John 5 has agreed to come on board and join us moving forward. We’ll see all you Crüeheads out on the road!”
