The famously infamous Tommy Lee has hinted that he and his band will be coming to New Zealand during their next world tour.
“You’re next Mexico, South America, Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Japan,” Lee wrote in the caption of an Instagram post, along with the hashtag #TheWorldTour2023.
Yeah, that heavily implies that Tommy, Nikki Sixx, John 5 (formerly of Rob Zombie), and Vince Neil will be visiting the Land of the Long White Cloud sometime this year. However, the official tour page on the band’s website does not display a New Zealand date or any of the other locations Tommy mentioned... yet.
The upcoming tour (which starts in New Jersey on the 11th of February) will be without longtime band member Mick Mars, who retired from touring with the band in October of 2022.
“Mick Mars, co-founder and lead guitarist of the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe for the past 41 years, has announced today that due to his ongoing painful struggle with Ankylosing Spondylitis (A.S.), he will no longer be able to tour with the band,” a statement released by Mick’s team reads.
“Mick will continue as a member of the band, but can no longer handle the rigours of the road. A.S. is an extremely painful and crippling degenerative disease, which affects the spine.”
We’ll let you know if there’s any official word about Motley Crue visiting our shores.
