FARGO — Get your lighters ready. Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe are returning to the Fargodome.

The hard rock bands will play Friday, Aug. 11, 2023. Classic rock icon Alice Cooper opens the show.

This is the third concert announcement by the Fargodome this week following dates revealed for Red Hot Chili Peppers and Shania Twain .

Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe made a name for themselves in the 1980s with a string of radio and video hits.

Def Leppard last played the Fargodome in 2018 and Mötley Crüe last played there in 2014 on what was at the time the group's farewell tour. The two groups started touring together last year.


FARGO - M'tley Crüe’s place in the pantheon of great rock ’n’ roll bands can be debated, but if their stop in Fargo Sunday night is like the rest of their farewell tour, they’ll be remembered fondly.

In October founding Mötley Crüe guitarist Mick Mars retired due to health issues and was replaced by John 5.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m., Friday, Dec. 16. Tickets start at $51.50.
