Two of the best rock bands around have confirmed a UK and Ireland tour as part of The World Tour.

The dates include a huge homecoming show for Def Leppard in Sheffield.

That's in addition to London's Wembley Stadium.

Def Leppard had recently been teasing fans about the possibility of tour dates.

Their huge world tour has sold 1.3 million tickets in North America alone, where they have been touring with Poison and Joan Jett.

Def Leppard's Joe Elliott says, “After finally getting back on the road and having a monumental summer tour in the US & Canada this year, we’re beyond thrilled to be bringing this massive stadium tour to major cities all over the world, and kicking off Europe in Sheffield where it all started for us 45 years ago. We’re looking to forward to seeing you out there, somewhere soon!”Motley Crue say, "We had an incredible time playing The Stadium Tour in North America this summer and we truly can't wait to take the show around the globe with The WORLD Tour in 2023. Crüeheads in Latin America and Europe: Get ready! We're coming for you next and can't wait to finally see all of you out there again next year!"
