Def Leppard and Motley Crue will be supported by VIVAS at The World Tour 2023 show in Sheffield later this month.

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

The World Tour 2023 was first announced in October 2022 with Motley Crue.

Sheffield Support Confirmed

VIVAS who also play at the Lytham Festival show in July have now been confirmed as the support act for the Sheffield concert.

Featuring Sav's son Tyler, they will open the show at Bramall Lane stadium on 22nd May.

European Shows

Many of the European shows on The World Tour have still to confirm the support acts despite some ticket sites listing time slots for them.

Non-Festival shows with supports yet to be confirmed include - Germany (3 shows), Budapest, Krakow, Milan, Lisbon plus the show in Spain.


Formerly called Crossfire Eagles before changing their name to VIVAS, the band played a show under this new name at The Leadmill in Sheffield in October 2022.

Sav attended that show and posted a pic on his new Instagram page.

View the post below along with the band's announcement.

VIVAS also released their new single 'Out To Get Me' yesterday - listen below.
