Mötley Crüe Are Apparently Trying To Replace Mick Mars With John 5 For 2023 Tour

Mick Mars John 5

As Metal Sludge reports, motley crue may be looking to replace their guitarist Mick Mars. John 5 is strongly being considered as a replacement and just might be the guy you see playing guitar for Mötley Crüe at some point in the future.

With the band’s massively successful The Stadium Tour under their belts, it seems that they’re eyeing up options for touring in 2023 internationally and into 2024.

Vince Neil has assured fans that Mötley Crüe will continue to tour internationally, with plans to return to the U.S. in 2024.

“We’re far from being over,” Neil told John Katsilometes of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “When we come back in ’24, we’re going to do it all over again.”

Neil also confirmed that there are talks of CRÜE returning for a third residency in Vegas, where they previously played a series of shows at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in 2012 and again in 2013.

“We have definitely talked about doing it, and everybody loves to do the residencies, so I say, ‘Yeah, we’re gonna do it,’” Neil said. “We just have to look at sometime in ’24, to be back in Vegas. But we will be back.”

He also said that band will only stick to touring and that there are no plans for new studio album.

“We are strictly a touring band,” Neil said. “When you see this show at Allegiant, you’ll see why. You’re going to see something that’s unbelievable, lights and lasers, three dancers. There are a lot of cool special effects, and a cool band putting on a rock show.”

Of course, nothing is official yet and Mötley Crüe have not commented on the rumours. But with John 5 being such a strong contender, it seems like only a matter of time before an announcement is made.
