Kiss Announce North American Tour

Throughout their 37-year career, Kiss has sold 80 million albums, played in front of millions of people and become an integral part of American culture. Now, rock's most iconic band is unleashing another assault on North America with The Hottest Show on Earth tour starting on July 23 in Cheyenne, WY.

The Hottest Show on Earth tour, produced by Live Nation, will trek through a mix of arenas and amphitheaters throughout North America. Tickets for shows produced by Live Nation go on sale to the general public in select markets beginning June 4. Citi cardmembers can access presale tickets beginning Wednesday, June 2 at 10 a.m. local time through Citi's Private Pass Program. Kiss is also giving back to the United States Armed Forces by donating one dollar from each ticket sold to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project.

Kiss has given some of today's now-legendary bands their first shot by opening for the band at sold out arenas and stadiums around the world. Now, the legendary rockers are partnering with Guitar Center for Guitar Center On-Stage, an unsigned band competition that will provide emerging artists the chance to open for Kiss at 22 of the band's tour stops. In addition, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley will choose one grand-prize winner to receive a $10,000 Guitar Center shopping spree among other prizes. For more information, visit Registration begins on June 1.

For the first time, Kiss will host a live internet chat on Facebook via Ustream on June 1 to give fans an opportunity to speak directly with the band about the tour. Users can watch and interact by visiting the official KISS Facebook page.
