The Fortheloveofrock YouTube channel recently posted a video clip of the performance. Also appearing at the gig was RATT frontman Stephen Pearcy who performed with his own solo band.

Vince Neil recently canceled his show
Earlier this month, Neil canceled his solo appearance at RokIsland Fest 2023 in Key West, Florida due to health scare. At the time, he said that the disease was “really kickin’ my ass.” He recently provided an update on his health.
Motley Crue’s “The Stadium Tour” with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts was originally scheduled to take place in the summer of 2020 but ended up being pushed back to 2021, and then to 2022, due to the pandemic.
After selling more than 1.3 million tickets in 2022, Motley Crue and Def Leppard and are going global in 2023 with their co-headline “The World Tour” along with special guest Alice Cooper. After the launch of European and Latin American dates, the U.S. dates will take place in August.
In November, Motley Crue and Def Leppard announced two U.S. shows for February 2023. The two bands will play at the 7,000-capacity Hard Rock Live at Etess Arena in Atlantic City, New Jersey on February 10 and February 11.
The Atlantic City shows will mark Motley Crue’s first U.S. live appearances since the announcement that founding guitarist Mick Mars would no longer tour with the legendary rock act. He is being replaced on the road by former Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson guitarist John 5.
