and Def Leppard
are reportedly set to announce a joint summer US Tour
reports, the two bands will be holding a press conference in Los Angeles on Monday, March 17th, which will be streamed on the Live Nation
website from 2 PM ET.
The tour is rumored to kick off in mid June and will run through to the end of August. KISS will be headlining the dates.
It was recently announced that KISS will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
. However, the band will not be playing at the event, as the organizers did not want to feature a performance from their current line up. As frontman Paul Stanley
notes: "They wanted the original four guys to play, in makeup. But, honestly, I don't want to roll the dice and possibly negatively impact on what I personally have been involved in building for 40 years. "I have too much invested at this point. It really is a can of worms that I feel is better off left closed. So there's been a lot of issues, and perhaps the best way to deal with them is to celebrate the four original guys and go there and get our award and to look past the differences that will always be there."
