Ask anyone in Hollywood and they will tell you: If it ain’t broke, why fix it? Last year Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard teamed up with some of their pals for their Stadium Tour; and it blew the roof off every joint they played. Being the considerate rock stars they are, they will do it again in 2023.
It was just announced that Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard are hitting the road for another co-headlining tour. This time Alice Cooper will join them on selected dates. Joe Elliott of Def Leppard said in a statement, “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!”
Mötley Crüe added in a joint statement, “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, get ready because we have a few amazing U.S. dates set for you!”
There can be no mistaking either of the headliners. In one corner Mötley Crüe epitomized the rock and roll lifestyle. Their mega hits are still played to this day and reflect the era that they helped blow up. Songs like “Kickstart My Heart,” “Same Ol’ Situation,” “Dr. Feelgood,” “Home Sweet Home,” “Live Wire,” “Looks That Kill,” “Girls Girls Girls,” and so many more are part of our teenage years for so many of their fans.
From across the pond, Def Leppard set the standard for Brit Rock with larger-than-life songs like “Photograph,” “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” “Foolin’,” and “Rock of Ages.” The impact both these bands have had on the music industry is undeniable.

The tour will kick off August 5th at the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse and crisscross the country before it finishes up August 18th at Sun Bowl Stadium in El Paso. Crossing fingers they will make it back to SoCal, we’ll see what happens. One thing is certain, you can catch them in Mexico, South America, Europe and the UK.
