Share This:

Hot off the heels of the biggest North American stadium tour of 2022 with more than 1.3 million tickets sold, classic rock legends Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe have announced 2023 U.S. dates for their co-headline “The World Tour.” Alice Cooper joins them on the U.S. bill as special guest.

Produced by Live Nation, the tour kicks off on February 18 in Mexico City, with stops throughout Latin America before heading to Europe in May and wrapping up in the U.K. on July 6.

Tickets for the U.S. shows go on sale to the general public on Dec. 16 here. There are also various pre-sales.

“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!” said Joe Elliott of Def Leppard in the original Oct. 20 European tour announcement.

“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!” Mötley Crüe said in a joint statement.
