In a recent interview with 95.5 KLOS, Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe reflected on their co-headlining tour with Def Leppard, which took place from February to November 2023.

He emphasized the camaraderie and support between the bands, particularly during the period of adjusting to Mick Mars’ departure from Mötley Crüe. Mars, who retired in October 2022 amidst two ongoing tours, “The Stadium Tour” and “The World Tour”, was replaced by John 5.

His exit from the band led to a lawsuit, as he claimed efforts were made to remove him from the lineup. Despite these challenges, Sixx expressed gratitude for the support Mötley Crüe received from Def Leppard during this transitional phase.

Mars’ departure marked a significant change for Mötley Crüe, as they continued without their original guitarist for the first time. The situation was met with understanding and support from Def Leppard, who had experienced similar hardships within their band.

Looking ahead, Def Leppard plans a new tour in 2024, the ‘Summer Stadium Tour’, this time without Mötley Crüe. They will be co-headlining with Journey, joined by the Steve Miller Band, Heart, and Cheap Trick. This tour follows a successful joint venture between Def Leppard and Journey in 2018, promising another round of exciting performances at stadiums around the world.
