Kiss and Motley Crue confirm Summer tour, announced dates and ticket details

Jul 20: Bristow, VA - Jiffy Lube Live

One of the hottest tours this summer was recently announced by the members of KISS and Mötley Crüe groups. Kiss members Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer along with Motley Crue's Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee have gathered on Wednesday, March 21st at L.A.'s Roosevelt Hotel to confirm their first tour together since 1982. Titled The Tour, the summer joint kicks off July 20th in Bristow, Virginia and runs through September 23rd in Hartford, Connecticut. Each band will play about 90 minutes and KISS will close every night.


Calling it The Tour is a bold proclamation. But after more than 60 combined years on the road, both bands feel comfortable with living up to that title. "You will scream your head off until it’s no longer on your shoulder and then you’ll feel great. You’ll be drenched, exhausted, and completely satisfied without ever having anyone touch your schmekel," Gene Simmons told Rolling Stone.


KISS' Paul Stanley has loftier goals though, namely surpassing the band's reputation as one of the great live acts. "What we’re hoping for, and certainly I am, is whatever people’s expectations are, we blow them out of the water," Stanley told Rolling Stone. "I want people to hope for the legend that they’ve heard about and find out it’s greater than that. I think that the longer we’re around the more invincible we become."


Speaking at the conference, Motley Crue bassist revealed: Growing up, I had a Kiss poster, Aerosmith poster and Sweet on the wall, and for me to go out and do this together, it's an honor. I know what Kiss is about, I've been watching them for years and I think it's a perfect, perfect match. Maybe a match made in hell, in some places in America they may think, but it's a perfect match and it's gonna be all night long; hits, bombs, girls, topless a few. I can't wait to experience it myself.
