Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and The Eagles were all honored at the 2023 Pollstar awards this week (February 22nd).
Motley Crue and Def Leppard won Rock Tour of the Year for their joint 2022 Stadium Tour while The Eagles took home the Pollstar Milestone Award.
Don Henley accepted the award on behalf of the band and said in his acceptance speech, “I appreciate this very much, We are three shows into our 51st year as a band and touring entity — and feeling every one of them. But we feel very fortunate.”
Dave Grohl also made an appearance at the ceremony to honor Foo Fighters manager John Silva, who won the Personal Manager of the Year award.
Grohl said, “We realized that he was one of us, an avid record collector, a musicologist, and we knew that this person based all of his love of music and his business on integrity, which was something that was very important to us,” Grohl added. “And over the years we’ve had some incredible triumphs and some devastating crises, but the one thing that has kept us together over the years is love. … I truly believe that Silva and I are like family.”
