Def Leppard And Motley Crue Announce ‘The World Tour’


Following a succesful showing in North America, Motley Crue and Def Leppard are taking their co-headlining tour to Europe and South America.

Kicking off this tour in February 2023 with a set of shows across South America, Motley Crue and Def Leppard will head for Europe in May.

The European leg of the tour will see two legends of rock music take to the stage at London’s Wembley Stadium and Dublin’s Marlay Park in July.

July will also see the bands finish off this mammoth tour in Glasgow.

Tickets for the shows will go on sale from Friday 28 October at 10am via Ticketmaster. They will cost €89.50 (including booking fee) each.

“incredible time”

Confirming this news, both bands released statements.

“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. 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!”, Motley Crue said.

Def Leppard’s Joe Eliot also added, “After finally getting back on the road and having a monumental summer tour in the US & Canada this year, 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 to forward to seeing you out there, somewhere soon!”.
