Break out the permed wigs, leather outfits and makeup geeks! KISS and Def Leppard are scheduled to hit the road together for their North American tour. The music legends announced on Monday, March 17 at Los Angeles’ House of Blues, they will be rocking 42 cities starting June 23 in West Valley City, Utah. A dollar from each ticket sold will go to the Wounded Warrior Project and other military non-profits to honor fans in the armed services. Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott told USA Today (via cnn.com) that he had first discussed the idea of touring with Kiss with Gene Simmons when the two musicians played together as part of the Rock ‘N’ Roll All Stars — a supergroup that also contained current and former members of Guns N’ Roses, the Cult, Alice in Chains and more, and toured Latin and South America last year. The tour wraps Aug. 31 in Woodlands, Texas. Tickets go on sale Friday.
“It’s finally happened, which is fantastic,”
Kiss vocalist-guitarist Paul Stanley said:
“We’ve run into each other at festivals,”
“It just seemed to be a natural fit.”
