Gearing up for 2023’s Lytham Festival, capped by the global Hard Rock legend double whammy of Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard.
Do ya wanna get rawked?
Bramhall Lane Sheffield, Wembley, Hampden Park and now Lytham. Add in several huge open air European gigs and the Leppard/Crüe World Tour parks up on the beach hut and windmill-adorned seafront of the Borough of Fylde in Lancashire. An idyllic setting that sees Lytham Festival play host to several big names in the music world but perhaps none more than the final night headliners.
Upping the ante after a series of quality high profile headliners (yet hardly slavering rock beasts that might rival the notoriety of Mötley Crüe), Def Leppard won’t be creating any Drastic Symphonies as on their new album with the Royal Philharmonic. They’ll be back to their rabble-rousing best with a clutch of classic tracks from Hysteria, some cherries from the legacy and a couple of Diamond Star Halos. Heavy glam rock at its best.
Expect a lively set too from the one-time naughty boys of Rock and Roll, Mötley Crüe with Vince Neil prowling the stage flanked (judging by the tour coverage so far) two huge inflatable and futuristic androids for company. A fabulous way to complete the run of Jamiroquai / Ezra / Sting / Richie week of fun.
