When Motley Crue and Kiss pulled their two-headed rock 'n' roll monster simply known as ‘The Tour’ into Englewood, Colo. last night (Aug. 9), they had a lot more than music on their minds. In the wake of the tragic movie theater shootings, the two bands announced their plans to donate $100,000 to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund. The bands hope that the money not only aids victims, but inspires others to support the cause.
In just a few more months, rock fans are in for the show of a lifetime when Motley Crue and Kiss hit the road together on their co-headlining trek, The Tour. The 40-date tour will kick off on July 20 in Bristow, Va. and is promised to be packed full of the same edge that both bands have always had.
Not once, but twice! That's how many times Kiss will perform on ABC's ratings bonanza 'Dancing With the Stars' next week. We know, we sounded like the Count for a minute there. In all seriousness, Gene Simmons and co. will take to the stage on both Monday, April 9 and Tuesday, April 10 to rock the worlds of the viewers like never before.
While rock ‘n’ roll and political conservatism don’t exactly go hand in hand, Gene Simmons and big business are a match made in heaven. In a recent interview, the KISS demon gave former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney his personal endorsement for the upcoming presidential election, should Romney win the party nomination.
Recording a duet with Miley Cyrus must have triggered some sort of collaboration fever for Bret Michaels. For his new album, 'Get Your Rock On,' he broke out his rolodex and lined up a veritable who's who of rock 'n' roll luminaries, including members of KISS, Pantera, Van Halen, Aerosmith and more.
If the news that Motley Crue and Kiss are planning to embark on a tour this summer pretty much made your life when we reported it earlier this week, then more good news appears to be coming your way. Both bands have posted tickers at the top of their respective homepages, presumably counting down the days, hours and minutes until they announce more details about what will surely be an epic co-headlining trek.
