DEF LEPPARD Members Suggest THE STADIUM TOUR 2023 Announcement Coming Soon

Def Leppard 2022. Def Leppard 2022

Def Leppard members have hinted that announcements for The Stadium Tour 2023 are coming very soon.

The Stadium Tour 2022 ended on 9th September in Las Vegas, NV at Allegiant Stadium.

In a new end of tour Behind The Scenes video Joe talked more about future plans for 2023 and beyond.

As with many tour updates throughout this year various locations have been mentioned including UK, Europe plus South America and also Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

Motley Crue updates have already suggested the tour will resume in Spring 2023 in Mexico/South America before heading to Europe/UK in the summer.

It would appear the other places in Asia/Australasia will likely happen, as they have on most recent visits, later in the year between October/November.

Joe mentioned on his weekly Planet Rock radio show on 8th October that he was still in Los Angeles preparing for upcoming activity.

He also hinted these things would be announced very soon without being specific to the tour or the recent reveal of a new cover song that would be used in a major advertisement.

Tour Announcement Coming

The tour announcement could be coming in the next few weeks following Joe's hint and the tour mentions in the end of tour video.

Many other artists have been announcing stadium shows for the UK/Europe for 2023 in recent weeks including Muse, Coldplay, Pink and many others.

Joe Elliott Show Update

Joe mentioned he was busy "setting up stuff" in California which would "come to light pretty soon" without saying exactly what he was referring to.

Up To 120 More Shows

Recent Motley Crue tour updates mentioned the same places as Joe in the new video - South America, Mexico and Europe.

Another update from a Vince Neil interview suggested up to 120 more shows could be played on The Stadium Tour in 2023 and 2024 (with the USA/Canada getting a second run of shows).

European/UK Festivals

A number of high profile rock festivals are due to make announcements soon about their 2023 line-ups.

Joe said back in July that festival shows would be mixed in with solo stadium dates in 2023 in UK/Europe which could well include previously played events like Download and Sweden Rock etc.
