After another monstrous year, Mötley Crüe are showing no signs of slowing down. The Bad Boys of Rock ‘n’ Roll are already packing their schedule for 2024.

In May, Mötley Crüe are headlining Welcome to Rockville in Daytona Beach, Florida. Also topping the bill are Foo Fighters, Slipknot, and Limp Bizkit. Other feature performers are Judas Priest, Disturbed, Queens of the Stone Age, Greta Van Fleet, Falling In Reverse, Breaking Benjamin, and more. In June, the band is headlining Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. From there, they head to Canada for an appearance at the Ottawa Bluesfest in July, plus a headlining concert at Scotiabank Arena in Calgary.

Before all that, though, Mötley Crüe are playing an exclusive New Year’s Eve gig in Palm Springs, California at Acrisure Arena. “Crüe Years Eve” will usher the band into 2024, which is poised to be their biggest in quite some time.

“We wanted to make ‘Crüe Year’s Eve’ at Acrisure Arena a unique celebration for fans,” says John Page, senior vice president of Acrisure Arena. “It’s not just a concert; it’s a special event to close out the year with the Mötley Crüe experience. The energy and showmanship they bring are unparalleled, and there’s no better way to ring in the New Year than with this legendary band. Acrisure Arena is honored to be the exclusive host for Mötley Crüe’s only scheduled performance and final show of 2023.”

Ahead of their world tour back in February, Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard played two warm-up gigs at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Mötley Crüe announced Tuesday plans to return next year. The group will play two shows on Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4 at Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 15.

Mötley Crüe’s last studio album was 2008’s Saints of Los Angeles. The band is currently working on new music with producer Bob Rock, and John 5 on guitar. Back in March, original guitarist and founding member Mick Mars retired from touring. For the global run, the Crüe enlisted John 5 to handling guitar duties on the road. Now, at appears as though John 5 will be recording with the band as well.

Alongside Def Leppard, Mötley Crüe have been touring the globe over the past few months. Over the summer, both bands are slated to perform at some of the world’s biggest rock music festivals including Sweden Rock Festival, Finland RockFest, Copenhell in Denmark, and Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium. In August, Mötley Crüe played a handful of U.S. headlining shows with special guest Alice Cooper.

Mötley Crüe has accumulated worldwide album sales exceeding 100 million, seven platinum and multi-platinum albums, 22 Top 40 mainstream rock hits, six Top 20 pop singles, three GRAMMY® Award nominations, four New York Times best-sellers, and even landed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

The band saw renewed success with the release of their Netflix biopic The Dirt. The film’s soundtrack landed the band another #1 album on iTunes and Top 10 worldwide with 22 chart-topping singles and seven albums on the charts. Before he was working with the band, new guitarist John 5 co-wrote the songs “The Dirt,” “Crash and Burn,” and “Ride with the Devil” for the soundtrack.
