Kiss and Motley Crue Announce 2012 Summer Tour Dates
by: Matthew Wilkening Yesterday
Paul Stanley / Vince Neil

Kiss and Motley Crue will embark on a 40-city tour together, with each band playing 90-minute sets on their fully stocked and typically insane stage set-ups. The bands announced the trek, which, by the way, they’re calling simply “the Tour,” at a press conference broadcast online earlier today (March 20).

Kiss will headline each night, with Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx quite logically explaining it was he who had a Kiss poster on his wall growing up, and not the other way around. Paul Stanley, who seems to be treading close to ‘Unmasked’-era costume territory with his latest feather / shoulder pads get-up, promised that this tour would be the very definition of “bang for your buck,” and implied that the only way to see more artillery in one night would be to piss off the military.

Although “comedian” George Lopez announced this would be the first time the two bands shared a stage, someone else pointed out just five minutes earlier that the Crue had in fact opened for Kiss on their 1982 ‘Creatures of the Night’ tour. (Oh wait, that was Lopez, too!)

When asked which songs they’d like to hear their touring partners perform on stage, Sixx requested the ‘Hotter Than Hell’ gem ‘Parasite’ (Nice!) while Stanley went with a traditional but also awesome ‘Wild Side.’ The best exchange of the event took place when Gene Simmons and Stanley provided nearly simultaneous respective “Yes” / “No” answers when asked if Gene would be filming his reality show while on tour. For the record, we are most clearly on “Team Paul” for this debate.

I was checking out info for a County Fairgrounds show & found the following rules for the concert:

ATTENTION: Please follow the rules below for all of our grandstand concerts.

All cans, glass bottles or glasses, bottle tops, cameras including video & DVD, audio recording equipment, large bags, back packs, flashlights, fireworks, and WEAPONS ARE PROHIBITED.

NO cell phone usage allowed.

Do NOT throw gifts on stage to artist.

Breaking any of these rules will cause you to be removed from the venue.

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

EDDIE’S fingers aren’t fingers they are muscle-powered pistons that hammer guitar strings to the fretboard with the force of a rivet gun”.
