Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe have added six U.S. dates to the previously announced international itinerary of their 2023 co-headlining World Tour, which begins Feb. 10-11 in Atlantic City, N.J., and wraps Aug. 18 in El Paso, Texas. Alice Cooper will support on all but the two opening shows.

“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 frontman Joe Elliott says.

Tickets for the newly announced shows go on sale first to Citi cardmembers starting Dec. 13, with the general public on-sale set for Dec. 16.

As previously reported, these will be the first Mötley Crüe shows following guitarist Mick Mars’ recent retirement from touring due to the degenerative spine disease Ankylosing Spondylitis (A.S.). He will be replaced by veteran guitarist John 5.
