Mötley Crüe Plays First Show With New Guitarist John 5


Published on :

After months of rumours, followed by months of John 5 posting videos on social media of himself learning Crue songs it’s finally happened folks – John 5 is now officially baptized as a live member of Motley Crue.

The first show took place last night in Atlantic City, New Jersey kicking off Mötley Crüe’s “The World Tour” with Def Leppard, which is sure to get everyone involved another cargo of money.

In October, the band officially revealed John 5’s involvement, explaining that Mick Mars was no longer able to continue in the live environment:

“While change is never easy, we accept Mick’s decision to step down from the band due to health issues. We have seen Mick deal with his ankylosing spondylitis for decades and he has always handled it with the utmost courage and the greatest grace.

“Saying ‘enough’ is the ultimate act of courage. Micke’s sound helped define Motley Crue from the minute he plugged in his guitar during our very first rehearsal together. The rest, as they say, is history. We will continue to honor his musical legacy.

“We will make Mick’s wish come true and continue to circumnavigate the globe as planned in 2023. It will undoubtedly take an absolutely outstanding musician to fill Mick’s shoes, so we are grateful that our good friend John 5 has agreed come on board and join us in moving forward. We’ll see you all Crueheads down the road! – Vince, Tommy and Nikki”

Shortly after, Nikki Sixx vouched for 5 and backed the decision, saying, “It ticks all the boxes. He’s a crazy player. Has respect for our music, is funny as shit and has a history with us and we’ve written some really big hits together.

Here’s the setlist, followed by fan-filmed footage of John 5’s first time playing guitar live with Mötley Crüe:
