Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe to host 2023 World Tour

Fresh from their North American stadium tour this year, which sold more than 1.3 million tickets, Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe have announced the next leg will be their 2023 co-headling The World Tour.

“After finally getting back on the road and having a monumental summer tour in the US and Canada this year,” Joe Elliott said, “we’re beyond thrilled to be bringing this massive stadium tour to major cities all over the world and kicking off Europe in Sheffield where it all started for us 45 years ago. We’re looking forward to seeing you out there somewhere soon.”

“We had an incredible time playing The Stadium Tour in North America this summer,” Mötley Crüe said in a joint statement, “and we truly can’t wait to take the show around the globe with The World Tour in 2023. Crüeheads in Latin America and Europe: Get ready! We’re coming for you next and can’t wait to finally see all of you out there again next year.”

The UK dates also include Lytham Festival on 2 July 2023.
