Def Leppard & Motley Crue announce UK tour

Aug 30 2011 - 17:32

This year's upcoming holiday season, UK fans will be treated to something special: Def Leppard is coming home for a UK arena tour -- and they're bringing Motley Crue along with them! To top it all off, Special Guests Steel Panther will warm up the crowd each night on the tour.

Joe Elliott said: "I can’t tell you enough how thrilled I am to announce this tour. We always strive to make our shows an event and to have Motley Crue & Steel Panther along for the ride makes this an event that just can’t be missed for rock fans across the UK."

Nikki Sixx had this to say about the tour: "Motley Crüe is excited to do some destruction with long time peers Def Leppard on tour this holiday season. We have never toured together so hopefully there will be some de-virginizing of each-others fans and in the end one f*cking wild party together!"

Presales for the shows, which are listed below, start this Thursday, September 1st, followed by the general sale on Friday, September 2nd and will be available at Live Nation.

DEC 6: Birmingham, LG Arena
DEC 8: Nottingham, Echo Arena
DEC 9: Glasgow, SECC
DEC 11: Manchester, MEN Arena
DEC 13: Sheffield, Motorpoint Arena
DEC 14: London, Wembley Arena

It's a shame the Motley Crue fans get first chance to get tickets today through their fan club. Priority or what :-(

Claire Silcock 08/31/11 2011 09:43:52 AM

How do you get hold of pre sales tickets? I assume all front row will go before general sale & I need to be on the front row!!

C'mon folks. This is a great tour for us UK fans of both bands. We have been waiting since June 2008 for the Lepps to return for a Uk tour and since 2005 for Crue. You US fans are being spoilt with both being around year after year. This year alone you had the Lepps and Heart and Crue and Poison Tour so stop ya moaning and let us UK fans rejoice in this great news. (ps 1993 since we had Poison over hear). To you Uk fans if your on o2 mobile network tickets are available now, and have been since 9am today, on o2 priority web site.

Hans Dobbelaere 08/31/11 2011 10:42:50 PM

micksea173 09/02/11 2011 11:35:14 PM

Are Def Leppard thinking of added another UK date and coming to Newcastle or are all the dates that I have seen are these the only UK dates. I can't see why Newcastle always get missed out when it comes to concerts.
