DEF LEPPARD Cancel Curitiba/Porto Alegre Brazil Shows On THE WORLD TOUR 2023

Def Leppard 2022. Screenshot

Def Leppard and Motley Crue have cancelled two planned The World Tour 2023 shows in Brazil for logistical reasons.

The World Tour 2023 starts in Mexico City on 18th February 2023.

This first leg features 6 shows in outdoor stadiums across Central and South America.

The second leg starts in Sheffield in late May and runs to early July with 20 stadiums, arenas and/or festivals to be played across the UK, Ireland and Europe.

The tour will see the band plays its first shows in Central and South America since 2017.

Unfortunately now two of the three scheduled shows in Brazil have had to be cancelled.

The band's planned first visit to Curitiba on 9th March will now not happen.

The show in Porto Alegre has also been cancelled.

The local promoters have said the shows were cancelled because of "production and logistical reasons".

This means The World Tour 2023 will consist of 26 shows with the two bands closing 13 each and not 14.

This is not the first time Brazilian shows have been cancelled as one of two scheduled shows in Sao Paulo in April 1997 was cancelled before the tour started.
