KISS Announces 40th Anniversary Tour

This summer, one of the greatest and most influential rock bands in history, KISS, will be celebrating their 40th Anniversary with a huge North American tour alongside fellow rock legends Def Leppard.  With their signature makeup, explosive stage show and anthems like "Rock And Roll All Nite" and "Detroit Rock City", KISS will be kicking off this massive 42-stop tour on Jun 23rd at the USANA Amphitheater in West Valley City, UT, and will rock their way around the country for the following 9 weeks before finally coming to a close at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion in Houston, TX, on August 31st.  A full list of tour dates can be found below.

KISS and Def Leppard jointly decided to support our heroes and honor their dedicated fans in the armed services by partnering with numerous military organizations for the tour, including the USO, Hiring Our Heroes, Project Resiliency/Raven Drum Foundation, August Warrior Project and the Wounded Warrior Project.  Military charities will receive a portion of ticket sales with the money raised being split amongst all the non-profit organizations participating with the summer tour.

Pearl artist, Eric Singer will debut yet-another stunning new custom Pearl drum kit to ride atop KISS’ spectacular ‘spider stage’, complete with Eric’s preferred Masters MCX Series all-maple shells and an undisclosed custom finish that’s guaranteed to amaze.  More information on Eric Singer, including the specs and pictures of his current ‘Mirror Ball Kit’ which was used throughout KISS’ 2013 World Tour, can be found here.

Eric and his ‘Mirror Ball kit’ can also be seen on April 11th, when KISS performs on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, one day after the band’s long-overdue induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  For more information on KISS, please be sure to visit their official website-
