After recently concluding their wildly successful 2022 North American stadium tour featuring Joan Jett and Poison, two of the most beloved '80s rock bands, Def Leppard and Motley Crue are already back together on the road again--this time for a world tour--and a surprising pitstop to Florida is on the lineup.
"Ready to hit the road...[...]#TheWorldTour 2023," Motley Crue singer Vince Neil wrote on Instagram this month proceeding the tour that will be taking the bands from South America to Europe and beyond.
However, the duo will be close to home sweet home headlining an "intimate" concert in Hollywood, Florida at the 7,000-seat indoor venue located in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on March 12 starting at 6p.m.
This showing is dubbed as "intimate" because the Hard Rock venue is considerably smaller than the massive stadium venues the bands packed out last year. One of the sold out shows for "The Stadium Tour" included PNC Park in Pittsburgh with over 38,000 seats.
As of writing, tickets to the Hard Rock Hotel show in March are still available and start at $205 for standard admission, increasing to over $700 for premium seats.
