Motley Crue recently announced their hiatus and they played the final show of the 2022 leg of “The Stadium Tour” Friday night, September 9 at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. The tour was long-delayed as it was originally planned for 2020 and later moved to 2021 and then to 2022.
However, as it turns out, singer Vince Neil said the band will continue touring internationally with Def Leppard in 2023, through Mexico and South America in the spring and soccer stadiums in Europe next summer.
Motley Crue could return to US in 2024
There are plans for Crue to return to U.S. for more shows in 2024. “We’re far from being over,” Neil told John Katsilometes of the Las Vegas Review-Journal in an interview that was conducted on Thursday (September 8). “When we come back in ’24, we’re going to do it all over again.”
Neil also confirmed that there are talks of Crue returning for a third residency in Vegas, where they previously played a series of shows at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in 2012 and again in 2013.
“We have definitely talked about doing it, and everybody loves to do the residencies, so I say, ‘Yeah, we’re gonna do it,’” Neil said. “We just have to look at sometime in ’24, to be back in Vegas. But we will be back.”
Vince went on to say that Crue is focusing on playing shows, with no plans to return to the studio. “We are strictly a touring band,” he said. “When you see this show at Allegiant, you’ll see why. You’re going to see something that’s unbelievable, lights and lasers, three dancers. There are a lot of cool special effects, and a cool band putting on a rock show.”
