In 2015, legendary heavy metal band Mötley Crüe announced that they were done with touring and making music for good. They even signed a ‘Cessation of Touring Agreement’ much to the dismay of fans worldwide.
After 34 years in the music industry, and selling over 100 million records worldwide, the band felt it was time to take a step back.
However, the Hall of Fame rockers came out of retirement in 2023 with a blockbuster stadium tour. The tour included a 20-date European leg and a 5-date UK leg.
The tour was co-headlined alongside British heavy metal pioneers, Def Leppard, who are also Hall of Famers in their own right, having sold over 25 million records worldwide.Register your interest in Def Leppard & Mӧtley Crüe VIP tickets

Def Leppard's last tour happened more recently, in 2019. The Sheffield-born metal band played 42 shows in 14 different countries, including a headline appearance at Download Festival at Castle Donnington.
Are Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe releasing new music?
Mötley Crüe haven't released any new music since they produced 4 new songs for the soundtrack to their 2018 biopic, ‘The Dirt’. The band hasn't released a studio album in 15 years, since the release of Saints of Los Angeles in 2008.
However, bassist Nicki Sixx has stated that he would like to release another Motley Crüe album in the future. Speaking on SiriusXM Sixx stated: “I would love to make some music with the guys again”. So, while nothing has been officially confirmed new music could be on the way.
Def Leppard released their 12th studio album ‘Diamond Star Halos’ in May 2022. The album came off the back of 7 years without any new music. The band claim that they are already at the starting point for their next project. So, new music could be coming from the northern rockers very soon.
