Rumors are spreading that the major announcements KISS and Rob Zombie have promised will be a package tour with top 3 artist and shock rock history. The tour is rumored to start sometime this summer and could go till the end of fall.





I hope this happens, I'll be a happy MoFo if so. :party:

Not sure... they're announcing whatever this announcement is via the Classic Rock newsletter, which is UK-based...

We're expecting they'll be one of the headliners of Hard Rock Calling in London.

Wow that's an epic fucking show. Obviously Kiss wouldn't have it any other way unless they were headlining :eyes:

Me too. Mostly for Zombie. But since KISS are already touring Europe and the UK, and the announcement is coming via a UK medium, I don't see it...

I hope I'm wrong.

Rob Zombie has posted the following message on his official Twitter profile:

"Big tour news coming on Monday morning! It's a tour match-up that you've asking me about for years. HMMMMMMMM?"

I wouldn't pay much to see any of these 3 individually, but all 3 would be a great deal. I saw Zombie open for Ozzy years ago, and he puts on a great show.

That would be wicked cool. I don't like KISS (though they'd be cool to see), but Cooper puts on a phenomenal show and I've always wanted to see Zombie. Would be even better if it was at the Comcast Center in MA, cause then I'd probably be able to skip KISS ticket prices.

If it is, though, would have to start after Mayhem is over, since Zombie's doing that.

This would be pretty rad. Not a KISS fan, but there a band under they "why not" category for me. Cooper would be awesome to see, and I've seen Zombie once and he was phenomenal. Hope this is true.

I saw that first and had no idea, so this sounds legit.

The presence of KISS makes this a $100+ ticket, so I hope it's just Alice and Rob even though I like KISS.

Worth it if they all play good sets

Except that KISS won't. They'll play their normal, incredibly average and predictable set.

I can't help but think the two things are separate and Rob will tour with Alice, and the KISS thing is something else.

Otherwise, why announce it in the UK first, when KISS are already touring the UK? There'd be no point announcing a US tour here? And why would KISS come here twice?

Unless it's that Rob and Alice are going to be the support on the UK tour (which so far doesn't have confirmed support bands), and this is only going to matter to those of us with tickets, since all the shows are practically sold out.

Either way, we will know Tuesday afternoon (UK time). I'll let you know what the deal is when I do ;)

Well given that it's KISS, Alice and Rob Zombie sharing a bill makes more sense given that KISS would need their own stage theatrics time and so would Cooper.

I like the set. I've never seen them before, but I don't really plan on paying to see them more than once.

The only way this is acceptable is if Zombie is opening the show.

In theory I think it sounds good but I don't think Kiss would do another long headlining tour after doing a long one not very long ago. Good god can you imagine how long it would take to change stage sets. They'd have to start this @ like 3 in the afternoon lol. I think Zombie/Cooper sounds more reasonable. Don't really wanna pay Kiss price$ either. Please let this be a US tour!!!

If it is a Zombie/Cooper tour only (I sure hope it is) who closes that show? Sure Zombie is more popular right now but Coopers show blows just about everyone else's away.

You really think Zombie is more popular than Alice Cooper right now? I don't see it...

I think so. Zombie has had more recent success album sales wise. Cooper hasn't had a platinum album in the US in 20 years. You also gotta factor in Zombie's recent success in his movie ventures, so he deffinately has more "buzz" to his name still.

I did see Cooper in 2007 when he was supporting Heaven & Hell. He blew their show away and more people were there for Cooper than H&H. So maybe he has become more popular agian in recent years. Still Zombie is more popular right now in terms of who a lot of people are more likely to buy a ticket and go see live.

Sure, Cooper tours endlessly it seems but i'm not sure how many younger fans he gains and how much it really has an impact on his album sales. I think people go to see him more for the show then the actually music he plays. That's just the impression I get. As long as Cooper sticks with stuff from the 70s the crowd is with him. But with the exception of Poison the crowd is completely clueless when he perfoms any other non 70s song.

What ravenheart has said is the only reason I put a "?" in the title, Zombie with Alice makes sense and would be a show I'd go to. The KISS announcement is rumored to be a reality show based around replacing Gene and Paul. Of course this would suck and just about every hardcore KISS fan would most likely hang themselves over this including me.

Someone on another board said that Rob said that "USA" fans need to not to be excited so if KISS/Rob/Alice did UK dates together it wouldn't "shock me" (pun intended)

In this country, Cooper without question. But we aren't lucky enough to get a bill like Cooper and Zombie.

With Zombie's irrational hatred of doing any real touring, it's far more likely his is a US tour.

If the rumour that KISS's announcement is a reality show turns out to be true, they have SERIOUSLY misjudged what makes a "massive" announcement, and their fan base in general.

Yay! No KISS! I really hope they give conventional dates for this one, I'd love to attend this.

Don't worry, if youve seen the dates, its not really coming to the US either.

And when the KISS announcement tomorrow ends up being that they'll be special guests to ELP at the High Voltage Festival in London on July 25th, this whole thing will end up being a huge disappointment ;)

Mind you, the routing is clearly not finished, so whining too early is silly :finger:

Well, yeah, with a pairing like Cooper/Zombie I guess it's hardly believable that that would be the final routing.

But, I saw an idea on MetalSucks that might help to explain the so few dates right now. Zombie's playing Mayhem, right? Don't those types of festival-tours sometimes have something written in the contract where you can't play in the same area for a certain amount of time before or after the tour?

Yes they do...and the original press release said it was a limited, exclusive run of dates

Nobody knows shit now on the KISS boards lol, I'm taking a stab at saying they will be with some major band playing Wembley Stadium?

ravenheart
02-23-2010, 07:40 AM
That's not a bad shout. Aerosmith are touring, but so far are only playing the Download festival.

Perhaps a co-headliner with them?

Or headlining some huge new event, maybe. Can't imagine there's much scope for that, seeing as we already have a major new rock festival this year.

We still haven't had the announcement. I bet they send it out after I've left work.

Told you it would be localised to the UK.

KISS are playing an 800-capacity club show next Tuesday in London.

It makes sense. When I saw Alice last year it was in October and he had released that halloween 24/7 song. So Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, and Halloween; makes sense as far as schedules and marketing.

It's not massive, but it's better than the reality show thing. I'm happy with it, maybe the setlist will change?

I wouldn't worry about the lack of dates they've announced so far for the Zombie/Cooper tour. Like some others said Zombie has Mayhem fest to do so the dates might be delayed until after that. Plus, Cooper may be recording a new album so maybe the time frame for the entire tour isn't exactly certian yet.

I don't know why you wouldn't do a full tour with these two. This tour can deffinately make some money. It doesn't make any sense to do these few dates in rare locations and then that be it.

Well Alice is starting to get real popular again thanks to his radio show so it's hard to predict who's popular Zombie or Cooper? Both do things currently that have made there names go on the Heavy Metal "Big Screen".

There's still an open date between Little Rock and Park City. Hopefully they do Sandstone.
