Nikki Sixx has teased potential updates to MÖTLEY CRÜE’s performance lineup for their upcoming tour starting in early May. The band’s previous “The World Tour” in 2023 showcased a setlist largely unchanged from 2022’s “The Stadium Tour,” kicking off with “Wild Side” and featuring hits like “Shout At The Devil” and “Dr. Feelgood,” culminating with “Kickstart My Heart.”

On March 29, Sixx shared on X (formerly Twitter) about the band’s recent activities, mentioning work on new songs with John 5 for summer concerts, devising a fresh setlist with Tommy Lee, and progressing stage designs. He also noted the band’s busy schedule with new music releases and extensive press engagements, expressing satisfaction with the productive week.

MÖTLEY CRÜE is scheduled for several festival appearances this spring and summer, including notable events like Welcome To Rockville and Aftershock, and has concerts lined up at the Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena in Atlantic City on May 3 and 4.

Earlier in 2023, the band collaborated with their long-term producer Bob Rock to record three new tracks, including “Dogs Of War” and a cover of the BEASTIE BOYS’ anthem “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!).” This cover made its debut at an exclusive show in London at the Underworld, treating 450 fans to a surprise performance.

John 5 became MÖTLEY CRÜE’s guitarist in late 2022, stepping in for founding member Mick Mars, who retired from touring due to health issues related to Ankylosing Spondylitis. Mars, though stepping down from touring, remains a part of the band, focusing on studio work and possible residency shows that require minimal travel.

Following Mars’s departure announcement and subsequent legal actions concerning his stake in the band’s business, MÖTLEY CRÜE continues to tour, despite previously declaring their 2014-15 tour as their final one. The band made a comeback announcement in 2019 for a stadium tour with DEF LEPPARD, joined by POISON and JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS.
