MÖTLEY CRÜE and KISS are expected to officially announce their “massive” U.S. co-headlining tour on Tuesday, March 20 at 5:00 p.m. EST. The trek will reportedly kick off on July 19 and will run for almost three months.
MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil told Robin Leach of the Las Vegas Sun about the upcoming run, “It’s going to be really cool because KISS is bringing their full stage show, and MÖTLEY will be bringing our full stage show, so you are going to see two huge headliners at the same time. It’s going to be one of the biggest tours of the summer, if not the biggest.”
KISS members declined to reveal any details about the upcoming tour at the “Kiss By Monster Mini Golf” grand opening on Thursday, but the band’s guitarist, Tommy Thayer, did tell the Las Vegas Sun that he really enjoyed the CRÜE‘s performance at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in February, saying, “MÖTLEY CRÜE is one of my favorite bands.” He added that KISS would be interested in entertaining such a monthlong residency at some point. “It would have to be way over the top, but we’re a band that does things over the top anyway,” he said. “We know no boundaries.”
MÖTLEY CRÜE recently entered drummer Tommy Lee‘s studio called The Atrium in Calabasas, California to begin recording a new song that will be released to coincide with the band’s upcoming tour.
KISS has completed recording its new album, “Monster”, for a late spring release. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include “It’s A Long Way Down”, “Back To The Stone Age”, “Shout Mercy”, “Out Of This World”, “Wall Of Sound” and “Hell Or Hallelujah”.
