Vince Neil says the guys of Motley Crue have plans to play more U.S. shows in 2024

After several false starts due to the pandemic, Motley Crue embarked on their massive Stadium Tour this summer with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Last weekend, the hair metal band wrapped up the 2022 part of their tour with a concert at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium. It was an evening of randomness, as expected, with drummer Tommy Lee announcing that he’s joined OnlyFans and frontman Vince Neil telling the crowd that on top of touring internationally with Def Leppard next year, entire tour plans to book more U.S. dates in 2024. That means all four bands currently on the Stadium Tour are expected to return for the next leg.

So, why this major change from the Crue being in retirement to booking years worth of tours? Speaking with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Neil discussed with John Katsilometes that the guys have been given new life by their un-retirement. “I am kind of sad, because it’s been so much fun,” Neil said. “We just played SoFi Stadium in L.A. and it was great.”

That’s when Neil added that he and the Crue have been having such an amazing time on stage this year and so revved up for their upcoming European shows that they have plans to return to the U.S. for more shows in 2022. “We’re far from being over,” he exclaimed. “When we come back in ’24, we’re going to do it all over again.”

Neil went on to say that the band’s upcoming shows will likely include a third Las Vegas Residency. The band previously had residencies at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in 2012 and 2013. “We have definitely talked about doing it, and everybody loves to do the residencies, so I say, ‘Yeah, we’re gonna do it,'” he said. “We just have to look at sometime in ’24, to be back in Vegas. But we will be back.”

Motley Crue also took to social media after the final show on their current leg to thank fans and the crew for their support. View the post below.
