Even after 35 years, it seems New York quartet Kiss can still rock'n'roll all night, and the costumed crusaders will do just that on a new 41-date fall tour, dubbed "Kiss Alive/35." The jaunt kicks off September 25 in Detroit, where the band will perform their entire 1975 classic, Alive!.
Each show will feature a new stage set, two-and-a-half hours of music, pyro effects, and, most notably, all new costumes. The band will play the classics, plus songs from their October 9 release Sonic Boom. Buckcherry will open all North American dates.
"Sonic Boom is our future and Kiss Alive! is our proud past," singer Paul Stanley said. "New stage, new battle gear, and a pyro arsenal that will again show everyone that there is only one Kiss!"
"For 35 years, Kiss raised the bar for what a rock concert should really be," Gene Simmons added. "This year is no different -- all new, all killer... all Kiss! The master's class in rock is in session! Kiss rules. Oh yeah!"
The tour will run from coast to coast and stop at New York's Madison Square Garden and New Orleans' Voodoo festival before winding down December 6 in Dallas.
For a special price, fans can meet the band and receive exclusive merch before or after the shows. Visit the Kiss' website for details.
