I've seen both of these bands at Blossom and they both put on a good old fashioned, elaborately staged, smoke and pyro filled, scantily-clad dancing girls in cages (Crue) rock n' roll show.
LOS ANGELES, CA (March 20, 2012) â Rock ân Roll doesnât get any bigger than this! KISS and MÃTLEY CRÃE... On the same stage... On the same night. This spectacle of spectacles announced today, KISS and MÃTLEY CRÃE are uniting to launch THE TOUR of 2012. The summer's biggest, baddest rock tour will level 40+ cities nationwide starting July 20th. The Live Nation promoted tour will go on sale beginning Friday, March 23rd at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com. Both bands will have fan club pre-sales beginning Wednesday, March 21st at 10am.
With combined album sales of almost 200 million, KISS and MÃTLEY CRÃE are more than just iconic; they remain today as the dominant powerhouses of rock music tallying 30+ chart-topping hits, countless sold out tours and awards and accolades from around the world. Known for their elaborate and spectacular stage shows, each band plans to give fans the ultimate summer concert experience with the most impressive lighting and sound production ever and their signature over-the-top pyrotechnics. This is the first time KISS and MÃTLEY CRÃE will share a stage since 1982.
KISS consists of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.
MÃTLEY CRÃE consists of Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee.
These veterans of the music business are still at the height of their popularity.
(editors note: yeah, both bands are still going strong, but the height of their popularity? Really?)
KISS is the juggernaut of them all, with 3,000 licensed merchandise products, including the KISS golf course in Las Vegas and a new album. KISS has broken box office records set by The Beatles and Elvis.
MÃTLEY CRÃE is the first rock band in history to have just completed an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The band is best known for continuing to reinvent not only their live show (with mind blowing elements such as Tommy Leeâs 360 drum roller coaster) and music (brand new song due out this spring), but remain on the cutting edge via social media interaction. MÃTLEY CRÃEâs New York Times bestselling book The Dirt is currently being adapted into a major motion picture. Last month, the band was featured in one of the highest rated Super Bowl ads of all time for the KIA Optima.
