Story by Jack Foley

Mötley Crüe have announced they will be touring the UK in December, co-headlining with Def Leppard.

The dates will mark their first shows since their Carnival Of Sins tour in June 2005 (apart from Download and Sonisphere festival appearances) and will coincide with the release of a new expanded Greatest Hits package which will include the Crue Fest DVD in November 2011.

The Crüe’s Nikki Sixx commented: “Motley Crue is excited to do some destruction with long time peers Def Leppard on tour this holiday season… We have never toured together so hopefully there will be some de-virginizing of each-others fans and in the end one fucking wild party together.”

The co-headline tour kicks of at Birmingham LG Arena on December 6 before winding up at London’s Wembley Arena on December 14.

Special guests will be Steel Panther.

The tour dates are (all December 2011):

6 – Birmingham LG Arena
8 – Nottingham Arena
9 – Glasgow SECC Hall 4
11 – Manchester Arena
13 – Sheffield Arena
14 – Wembley Arena

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, September 2 priced at £47.50 (London) and £45 regionally (subject to booking fee).
