Motley Crue and Def Leppard Add More US Shows With Alice Cooper

Motley Crue and Def Leppard have announced six more U.S. stadium shows for 2023, this time with support from Alice Cooper.

The new string of dates begin on Aug. 5 in Syracuse, N.Y., and end on Aug. 18 in El Paso, Texas. The announcement comes shortly after Motley Crue and Def Leppard confirmed two February 2023 shows at the Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena in Atlantic City, N.J., which will serve as a warm-up for their four-month tour of Latin America and Europe.

Tickets for the new U.S. shows will go on sale to the general public on Dec. 16. You can see the new dates — and the previously announced concerts — below.

“After finally getting back on the road this past summer, we’re beyond thrilled to bring this massive tour to a global audience including some special dates in America,” Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott said in a statement.

Motley Crue said they “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. Crueheads get ready because we have a few amazing U.S. dates set for you!”

The 2023 shows will mark Motley Crue’s first with John 5, who is serving as a touring replacement for guitarist Mick Mars after his retirement from the road.
