Following the huge success of their NETFLIX biopic THE DIRT, Mötley Crüe has seen a massive surge in new audience with fans around the world demanding the band tour again. This led to the band members reuniting and announcing that “Mötley Crüe is back” just recently. While “The Dirt” caused a meteoric 350 percent increase in streams of Mötley Crüe’s music across all platforms and the younger 18-44 demographic now represents 64 percent of the band’s fanbase, most of the new fans have never seen any of the band’s legendary live shows that Crüeheads have relished for close to four decades. Mötley Crüe is also celebrating the 30th anniversary of their No. 1 charting, 7x Platinum album, DR. FEELGOOD this year. The band is ready to deliver an over-the-top stage show packed full of hit songs.
2019 ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES Def Leppard are one of the most important forces in rock music.

Def Leppard’s star continues to rise and prevail. The band has amassed a staggering 2.5 billion streams, releasing their music digitally last year.
Def Leppard’s influential career crosses generations and includes numerous hit singles and ground-breaking multi-platinum albums—including two of the best-selling albums of all time, “Pyromania” and “Hysteria,” both of which are certified Diamond (10x platinum).
