JOHN 5 Cancels Australian Tour Dates

John 5

John 5, an acclaimed guitarist who has played with ROB ZOMBIE, Marilyn Manson, and David Lee Roth in the past was recently announced as the new replacement for MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s Mick Mars.

Unfortunately, this means that John 5 will have to cancel his solo December dates in Australia.

“Due to changing circumstances with my schedule we will be unfortunately unable to keep the Australian tour in place,” he said in a statement. “I hope to be able to reschedule the tour at some point in the future. Tickets will be refunded from your place of purchase and if you purchased a meet & greet from my store, please email the store and they’ll refund you. Thanks all!!”

MÖTLEY CRÜE and DEF LEPPARD have announced two U.S. shows for February 2023. The bands, who recently teamed up for the mega-successful “The Stadium Tour”, will play at Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena in Atlantic City, New Jersey on February 10 and 11.

Tickets for the shows are available at this location.

MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s United States shows in Atlantic City will be their first live appearances after announcing that founding guitarist Mick Mars would no longer tour with the band.

Mars still remains as a member of the CRÜE, but he will not participate in any touring activities.
