View Full Version : RUMOR: Kiss / Motley Crue

Blockbuster tour alert! Well, if all those rumors about Motley Crue breaking up after their Las Vegas residency were getting you down, here’s a new rumor to cheer you up! The rock site BraveWords has it on good authority that Motley Crue and KISS are gearing up to join forces for a mega fall 2012 tour run.

The alleged tour would feature Motley Crue in the support role with KISS headlining behind their upcoming ‘Monster’ album.

As KISS prepare to release ‘Monster,’ Motley Crue are taking up shop at The Joint in Las Vegas for their unprecedented residency in February. You can read all about it here in our exclusive interview with Crue’s madman behind the kit, Tommy Lee.

The combined forces of two of rock’s most theatrical live shows could prove too much for one stage, so please be forwarned that as of this moment, this is strictly a rumor!

As soon as the details are confirmed or denied, we’ll report. Although, here’s some food for thought: Nikki Sixx DID say that the Vegas residency would launch the biggest years of the band’s career.

Although I'm not a fan of motley crue, I skimmed over an interview and Nikki sixx said they would be doing a co-headlong tour with a major band. I thought "Either Van Halen or Kiss." I was actually thinking about them touring with Kiss yesterday...

"Another volume in the "Who Cares?" Chronicles: There's a rumor that Kiss and Motley Crue are touring together. Maybe you can re-mortgage your house for tickets! Why pay $18 or 20 to see a GREAT band in an intimate setting that truly needs and deserves your money when you can see a washed up band that's 20+ years past their prime for $80-100+, just because they have songs on the radio?!?"

Ya my little boy would love to see Kiss, but i'm not paying to see them again.

Like the above poster, i can see numerous great bands playing small venues compared to one Kiss show. Makes my decision rather easy. I can list about 4 or 5 shows already for this year i can go for the price of a Kiss show and be within 100ft of the stage.

Or maybe because they like the music? Or maybe because they want to see a "show?" Or maybe because they don't have to "re-mortgage" the house to afford a $100 concert ticket?

:tp:


Don't get me wrong, I love club shows, but I also like arena shows. I also like seeing bands that I grew up with and have listened to for many years. Who cares if someone on the internet thinks they are "washed up" or a "waste of money?"

And I am not even necessarily defending these two bands, but I would definitely consider going to this show.

I like arena shows, too. But you have to agree though, that KISS tickets are extremely over priced. Most shows I've looked up have been $60-$80 for nose bleeds. I think that's excessive.

And yes, I paid $100+ for Big 4 tix. Yes, I thought that was excessive, as well. I just don't think a "normal" KISS show should be as expensive as they are.

Wow, I did NOT expect to get that response from you. I posted this on Facebook earlier and was expecting to get flamed for it, but I actually got an overwhelmingly positive response for it.

1st off - I'm not downplaying artists who are big for the fact that they are big and charge a lot for tickets, god knows I've paid $100+ for Maiden tickets on multiple occasions, and I have paid a pretty hefty price for one or two other artists. But Maiden is also a pretty different animal than the sort of bands I'm talking about with that post. Maiden never really had US commercial success in their entire career, and for a band their size, they have easily one of the most knowledgeable, devoted fanbases out there - Rush is a similar animal. But bands like Motley Crue, Def Leppard, etc - are absolutely just cruising through the twilight of their career based solely on the fact that they had hits 25 years ago and that a large chunk of the public are idiotic enough to still pay big bucks to see them now because of that fact.

I know there is something to be said for the spectacle of a "show", like a band like Maiden puts on, and no, you can not get that at a club show. I love those big spectacle shows as well, but meh. I know that it's not the way everyone feels, but honestly if I were to make a list of my 25 favorite shows (out of around 110-115 or so), all but one or two of them would be at places that held 1,200 people or less. I'd rather have a personal interaction with a band than stare at a cool light show for 2 hours and pay four times as much money - but that's just me. Also, as an artist trying to break into the industry, I am 10x more inclined to give my money to bands that are struggling in some sense. Why would I want to pay $100 a ticket to a bunch of millionaires who haven't held a real job in 30 years, live in mansions, and can do whatever they want with their careers as opposed to pay $20 a ticket to a band who have to balance their music career with full-time day jobs and bust their asses to further themselves to ensure that they even CAN tour, or CAN make a new album?

Also - the whole re-mortgaging your house thing was clearly supposed to be a joke and an exaggeration.

This is still incredibly biased though. So it's justified for a band to charge a lot for an arena show as long as they don't have hits? I'm sure that's not what you mean, but that's how it sounds. If people had no interest in seeing these bands still, then they wouldn't be able to play arenas like they have been for decades. I saw both Def Leppard/Heart and Motley Crue/Poison last summer, and they were each packed. Yes, they do play pretty much entirely hits, but there are tons that grew up on those bands and love them to this day.

I agree are a bit expensive for the most part (I paid about $70 for decent Crue tickets, although I was able to get solid seats for Leppard for $20), but people love them, and they aren't idiotic for having a different opinion. Plus, Crue's show had a pretty high production, with the drum coaster and all. This Kiss/Crue tour I'm sure will also be high production, like Kiss's shows always are. I do agree that bands like Maiden are much better live, which is part of a reason why their fan bases are so dedicated. But all of these bands have an audience.

Anyways, I might consider going to this tour myself. I've never seen Kiss before, and I always heard about how good they were live. Motley was solid when I saw them, but I could do without seeing them again, so me going will probably depend on price and whoever they get as the opener.

I've been to 4 concerts. 3 in arenas, one in an ampitheater. Metallica, Maiden, Megadeth, Rush. With the exception of Metallica, Fan based shows. With Metallica, there's a lot of Black album people.) I've never seen a show in a club and probably never will.

Kiss has a lot of special effects in their shows. Special effects cost money. So Higher ticket prices. I think it's the same with Crue.

Looks like this will be confirmed next week.

Vince Neil: “It’s going to be really cool because KISS is bringing their full stage show, and Motley 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.”

Well Crue did a UK tour last year with Def Leppard and Steel Panther opened it, so I don't see why they couldn't open this. Which would be awesome, since I've never seen Kiss and was gonna go to this. :D

I love Steel Panther, but seeing them live is kind of annoying. I want to hear their original material when I see them live.

"The quote was made during a time when the reception of Motley Crue's reunion was lukewarm, but Kiss's reunion was megahot. I thought it was funny how they blew off the offers back then, but it is hilarious that they are going through with this now, considering that MC has become more popular again."

Our rock radio station is saying there's a "huuuuge announcement this week for Bone Bash # whatever", and I'm sure it's this. All they do now is slap their name on an existing tour, whereas before they would actually get two tours to converge or at least get some other significant bands together.

I'm thinking about possibly seeing this if it comes to Wisconsin or a venue in Chicago besides First Midwest Bank Amphitheater. I just got into Kiss and they would be my reason for going.

The only thing is that I don't know how I feel about Motley Crue as I only know 2 of their songs: Dr. Feelgood which rocks and Girls, Girls, Girls which I don't like. Will have to get a couple of their albums to see what I think of them overall. Well I guess we'll see the announcement in about an hour.

I might get a lawn ticket for VA Beach, I'll save my money and buy an up close seat for Kiss when they're touring by themselves.

September 8- Alpine Valley :eek:

How fast do you think these tickets would sell out, excluding the lawn? I just know within 17 minutes of the general public ticket release, Radiohead sold out every seat in Tinley Park except the lawn.

This.

Motley Crue was awesome when I saw them at Ozzfest a few years ago and I really want to see Kiss. And also Steel Panther, if it's true that they're opening.

That's a good deal I suppose, but I wouldn't mind dropping Crüe if it meant that Kiss did their usual two hour show. This is gonna be an awesome show regardless though, I'll be attending the Concord date. And if Steel Panther really are opening and playing no covers, then that'll make it even better.

Yea the other time I saw Kiss they played for nearly 3 hours so 90 minutes is a big difference but I'll still go.

Anyword on if Panther is opening?

I'm tempted to go to the Concord, MA show. It's a lot closer then Mansfield and this looks like it will be a good time. Maybe Kiss will play Forever and let me be a happy man.

I was on live nation looking at the show I planned on attending... Woahhhhhh. After service fees... Lawn is 48$ and seats are 185$ (yep, one hundred eighty five dollars - thats no typo). I think I'll pass or get lawn. Ridiculous!!!

Last time I saw KISS I had bought two lawn seats for $10 a piece since they were selling them cheap at Uproar tour then when I got to the kiss show I upgraded both seats to 100 level for $20 a piece. Ended up middle of the row right side of stage maybe 60 feet away.

Are you sure ALL the seats are $185? Because assuming most of the shows they are playing are outdoor pavilions/amphitheaters wouldn't like the Level 100 seats be more than the Level 200 seats? I don't know I haven't been to a show like that yet, Radiohead will be my first of that type on June 10.

damn i was hoping it would be during the summer but my date is a month into the school year, still its a possibility since it's on a weekend

Wow, I literally JUST checked their site and it was empty.

Looks like I'll be making the trek to Jones Beach again. I was really hoping they would play Mohegan Sun since both bands ALWAYS do, but I'll take what I can get.

any reason you're not going to the Hartford date?

Around what I expected sadly. Will either get the cheaper seats, or else I'd skip Mayhem Fest.

$159 after service charges for the front section. When KISS played at this venue two years ago, the front section was orchestra seating. Whenever Crue plays here, it's GA Pit. If it's seating, I'll pass. If it's pit, I'm going.

it's most likely seating because of Kiss

Jones Beach - I'll probably buy a cheap seat w/o service charges since I'll be at a lot of shows during the summer. No way these things are selling out.

so I signed up for the Kiss Army to get presale tix, and apparently only the "Premium" members get them first

also the "Meet and Greets" are 1,300 bucks

And if you'd meet Gene Simmons, he'll make you pay even more.

Which btw looking at where the seats are for the Crue M&G its not worth it(I mean it was already way too expensive but the seats aren't even in the closest section)

I have made up my mind: I won't ever meet my "icons". There has to be a certain distance, there's a reason they are up there and I'm not.

And yes, I do know that Gene is all about money, just look at the ridiculous amount of merchandise, seen on facebook...

The lawn tickets are $22-$40 after charges. I'm really confused why there are two different prices for the same lawn. Maybe there are a limited amount of the cheaper tickets?

Just bought my lawn tickets at the venue, and they ended up being $16 total. That's a good deal no matter how you look at it, although the actual seats were a bit too expensive. July 28th can't come soon enough!

Got tickets for the cheaper seats (section 201) for the Alpine Valley show (9/8), so psyched for Kiss! Not very familiar with Motley Crue, but I listened to their album Dr. Feelgood yesterday, and surprisingly I enjoyed most of it (although there seemed to be a song or two of filler, i.e. "Sticky Sweet")

Check out Shout At The Devil, much better imo.

You guys w/ cheap tix options are lucky. The 2 shows I could potentially make it to are $58 and $62 for the cheapest. Not gonna pay that for 90 minutes of KISS from 900 feet away.

Not that lucky, by cheaper I meant $71 including service fees. Cheaper than the closer seats is what I meant.

This is hilarious, although possibly only for me.

The Treatment suck. Crap live, album is pretty awful as well.

They were basically put together by Laurie Mansworth, the guitarist from NWOBHM band Airrace, and before that The Move. Both failed, no one cares about them. He started managing a band called The Hurricane Party, who were quite good, but didn't get anywhere. So they changed their name to Roadstar and got a bit further, but still nowhere really. So they changed their name again to Heaven's Basement and got a new singer. Still haven't really gotten any further than they did as Roadstar, so Mansworth jumps ship, gets The Treatment together with his son on drums and... gets no further really than the others. They still suck and spend most of their time proping up the bottom of the bill at UK festivals and trying to get the opening slot on every rock tour that passes through the UK. Ridiculously covering Roadstar and Move songs along the way, with a bassist who for no apparent reason is called "Swoggle", and looks like a hobbit.

Somehow they're at least managing to get on tours. Half-empty arenas and theatres have been ignoring them on several major tours here. How the fuck they got on this one I've no idea, but I would guess half-empty US arenas will ignore them just as well as we do.
