The announcement comes on the heels of the news that John 5 will be stepping in as the Crüe's new touring guitarist, replacing Mick Mars onstage due to the founding axman's "ongoing painful struggle with Ankylosing Spondylitis (A.S.)."
The band's first-ever shows with 5 (known for his many years in Rob Zombie's band) will go down February 10th and 11th in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and then they'll embark on a lengthy world tour throughout the winter and spring of 2023, hitting Europe, South America and the U.K. before returning home to the U.S. for the aforementioned summer run.
The trek kicks off August 5th in Syracuse, NY, and will include stops in the Midwest before concluding in El Paso, TX, on August 18th. General tickets go on sale December 16th at 10 a.m. local time and you can get yours here. See the dates below.
