As they celebrate 35 years, Kiss today announced the dates of the “Kiss Alive 35” North American tour. The tour kicks off with a rapidly selling, special multiple-show engagement in Detroit Rock City beginning September 25th, where Kiss will be playing the classic album that started it all: Alive! The tour leg will then hit more than 40 additional cities before concluding in December.
The show will feature a new stage set, pyro effects, and all new costumes. Fans will be treated to a 21⁄2 hour set of some of rock's greatest hits, including "Rock and Roll All Nite," "I Was Made for Lovin' You," "Detroit Rock City," "God Gave Rock & Roll to You" and "Shout It Out Loud," as well as songs from the band's new album, Sonic Boom. Buckcherry will be main support on all of the Kiss Alive 35 North American dates.
Said Gene Simmons, “For 35 years, Kiss raised the bar for what a rock concert should really be. This year is no different -- all new, all killer...all Kiss! The master's class in rock is in session! Kiss rules. Oh yeah!"
"Bigger is better!" said Paul Stanley. "Sonic Boom is our future and Kiss Alive! is our proud past. On this tour you get Kiss Alive! plus a slew of other classics and soon to be classics. New stage, new battle gear and a pyro arsenal that will again show everyone that there is only one Kiss!"
Sonic Boom - Kiss’ first album of new material in 11 years - will be released exclusively at Walmart, Walmart.com and Sam's Club retail locations beginning October 6. Produced by the band's Paul Stanley in Los Angeles, the album is the centerpiece of a three-disc set that also features a completely re-recorded greatest hits CD as well as a live DVD shot in Argentina during the band's recent, record-breaking Kiss Alive 35 South American tour.
