KISS and Mötley Crüe announce The Tour

PanARMENIAN.Net - KISS and Mötley Crüe gathered at L.A.'s Roosevelt Hotel to announce "The Tour," a joint summer package that kicks off July 20 in Bristow, Virginia and runs through September 23 in Hartford, Connecticut. Each band will play about 90 minutes and KISS will close every night, Rolling Stone said.

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," 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."

This marks the first time the two acts have shared the same stage since Crüe opened five dates for KISS on 1982, 30 years ago. And while Crüe have since become hard rock icons in their own right, they are still the same KISS fans as back then.

A double bill of KISS and Mötley Crüe promises to be over the top, "Elvis on steroids," it was called in the press conference.
