John 5 and the Creatures will set out on an 27-date stretch across the United States that will extend the first quarter of the new year. Kicking off with a pair of shows that will feature a supporting set from virtuoso Jared James Nichols, more special guests are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

John 5 said of the run that begins with NAMM weekend in Southern California. “I am really looking forward to see all of you monsters on the road!”


Among the various luminaries John 5 has worked with, he has been trusted to handle the shred for the likes of Rob Zombie, Rob Halford and many more throughout his three decade career. Late last year, it was announced that John 5 would become the new touring guitarist for Mötley Crüe, taking over for Mick Mars who was retiring from the road.  

John 5 recently wrapped the Mötley Crüe’s world tour that saw several high profile dates along with Def Leppard. Marking the major milestone, John 5 is featured alongside Crue bandmate Nikki Sixx on the October issue of Guitar World.
