it appears that Kiss will tour this summer with Def Leppard and Night Ranger in tow. As you have recalled late last year that there was a summer of 2014 rumored tour featuring Kiss, Def Leppard and Poison. Apparently Poison will not tour and Night Ranger have been selected to open instead. Expect an official announcement soon.

I wouldn't mind seeing Kiss again, but it'll definitely depend on price and location.

Location: Live Nation sheds that hold at least 10K.

Price: As much as the Kiss/Crue tour. The key to that is to wait for it to sell terribly and then buy an upgrade for $10 on the day of the show. I ended up sitting in front of Senator Scott Brown and his family and behind Michael Sweet of Stryper at the Kiss/Crue show in Mansfield, and all of them had the VIP badges.

I'll grab a $40 open air seat and upgrade. Saw one of the two Def Leppard shows in the US last summer at Meadowbrook and they still sound excellent in concert. Plus, they're the only band I've ever seen whose sound hasn't sucked asshole in Mansfield (where this will surely end up). Even though Kiss tunes down a whole step now to help out Paul's voice, the music sounds as good as ever. I hope they keep Psycho Circus as the opener.

Or if I'm lucky, the dates will be in October/November and it'll be an arena tour. Wouldn't bet on it though.

How come they couldn't manage to get Joe to sound even competant on their live album/DVD then?

Consensus these days is Leppard are another Crue. Band sounds great, singer sounds like boiled crap.

I was referring to the band in general.

While Joe has his low moments, he is nowhere near as fucking bad as Vince Neil.

At least Joe is capable of singing every lyric and not ajajajaaj FEELGOOD ajaajajajaj AWRIGHT.

This freakin' sounds awesome, but if you think about it we're most likely not going to be getting good full sets from both bands. Either it will be like the last tour with Crue and both bands will do an equal amount of say 13 or 14 songs, or Kiss will get the boost and leave Leppard with only like a 10 song set, which is not cool. Def Leppard have finally started improving on their set lengths/selections, this will just bring us back to their sets from three years ago. I might go if I can get tickets for cheap and the setlists look pleasing, because even though it won't be full on Leppard or Kiss, having two amazing live bands together on a bill is still awesome.

They will get shorter sets and I don't see Kiss playing longer than Leppard. I wish Kiss would just do their own tour but it's too much money for Gene and Paul to turn down I guess. The last couple of times I saw Leppard Joe sounded great, the time before that he sounded worn out. Maybe he quit drinking and smoking, I don't know. I guess I was lucky to catch him sounding good.

Yea I was hoping for Kiss to do their own tour and Leppard do their own. Leppard has one of the greatest live shows I've ever seen, as far as arena rock spectacles go.

I really hope so. At the Kiss/Cre show, Kiss only played 13 songs and after seeing them the year before do 20-something that was extremely disappointing

They're doing more dates than I thought they would. Paul never did take much time to rest after the vocal cord surgery he had in October of 2011. Having that surgery and then going out with Crue in 2012 was a bad idea. He should have just taken a year off but they're workaholics, they don't know what's it's like to take much time off. At least he doesn't skip any of the words and he will only have to sing around 10 songs a night at most.

Oh yeah, they're all childish motherfuckers, that's for sure.

Something I read the other day was interesting though. Either Gene or Paul, can't remember which, said they'd actually spoken to Ace and Peter, and it was all agreed to attend together and accept the award together, but once they were told only the original four were being inducted, they refused to play.

The Hall, Ace and Peter had assumed attending together would lead to playing, so cried over it.

The rest you've seen, no doubt. All the crying over "they're being disrespectful by choosing to play with the current line-up" is actually bullshit, because they're not playing at all.

I've seen it yeah, and I've never been in the "it's only Gene"-camp. And Eric Singer is a better drummer than Peter, certainly than during his last tour with Kiss. Ace I do miss.

Criss also got a shitload of money when being asked not to play on a record, I think it was for Unmasked...

Yep, he has bad shows. He also has good ones. Last time I saw them in London he carried the whole show. Last year I saw them in Sweden and he played while ill, so naturally sounded terrible.

He's hardly in Vince Neil's league of sucking at every show.

Releasing yet another greatest hits, with a couple of unreleased demos/live tracks

Fuck the hall and Ace and Peter. They both have had many chances to stay in the band and get their shit together, but they always go back to being unprofessional dickheads with drug and alcohol problems. They have both quit the band at least twice, Paul and Gene have given them every chance to stay. As much as I like Ace and Peter, Kiss is Gene and Paul, always has been. Good that Kiss is giving the hall a big fuck you and cancelling their scheduled performance.

I look at it like this, instead of making fans travel to Brooklyn to see a failed attempt at a minor performance at an event that will drag on for hours they've opted to tour with a big coheadliner and come to the fans.

I give Ace and Peter credit for being important members when they were in the band. To say they were not somewhat important to their success would be ignorant. But it has always been Gene and Paul running the show ever since they fired the guys in Wicked Lester and started Kiss. They always marched on no matter what their popularity was or what the lineup was at the time. In the early 80's Ace and Peter thought they could be successful solo artists, I guess it didn't work out that well for them. Also they couldn't physically do the work schedule that Gene and Paul demand.

As far as Paul changing his mind saying it wasn't important, it looks like he was pissed when he found out the hall was pulling some bullshit about who should be inducted and who should be left out.

Also they couldn't find a spacesuit big enough for Ace, and he would probably have to borrow a wig from Tate.

He was a complete mess around that time. I wouldn't say he was a bad drummer, but nothing special and unreliable. He's better than Charlie Watts and maybe even Ringo. I shouldn't have said there was nobody worse than him. Seriously I hope he's doing good and saved some of that money.

I hope this "having an opener" doesn't shortened Kiss and Def Leppard's sets. Tower of Power did like 7 songs and Journey and Steve Miller both still did 18 songs. I expect no less from these two bands.

It shouldn't, when Kiss and Motley Crue toured together The Treatment got maybe like 30-35 minutes

Cre did 14 and Kiss did 15(apparently the Treatment had an 8 song set), the 09 tour Kiss did 21 so clearly they cut down but who knows?

In my setlist notebook I have written down that Crue did 13 (which includes a drum solo), and KISS did 13 (which includes a bass solo). I expect at least 16 songs per band (actual songs)
