MÖTLEY CRÜE & DEF LEPPARD’s ‘The World Tour’ 2023 Announced, Is Mick Mars in or out?

Celebrated rock legends DEF LEPPARD and MÖTLEY CRÜE are going global in 2023 with their co-headline “The World Tour”. The Crue was forced to replace drummer Tommy Lee without any advanced warning to their fanbase, due to a reported injury the drummer sustained. Word going around is that guitarist Mick Mars will be replaced on the band’s upcoming touring by ex-Rob Zombie shredder John 5, although the Crue will not confirm this.

Produced by Live Nation, the trek kicks off on Saturday, February 18, 2023 at Foro Sol in Mexico City. Both bands will bring their electrifying stage shows across the globe with stops throughout Latin America before heading to Europe in May 2023 — which includes a stop at the iconic Wembley Stadium on Saturday, July 1, 2023 — then wrapping up in Glasgow, U.K. at Hampden Park on July 6, 2023. Stay tuned for additional 2023 shows to be announced soon.
