Kiss brings Alive/35 Tour to the U.S.


Kiss is bringing their “Alive 35” world tour to the United States to wrap up the lengthy expedition. The tour began in March of last year, spanning Australia, New Zealand, Europe, South America, and parts of Canada. Now, Kiss will be returning to home, kicking off the American leg at the Cobo Arena, where they recorded their successful Alive! album some 35 years ago.

This incredible show will feature a new stage set, pyro effects that only the “hottest band in the world” could deliver, and all-new costumes. Fans will be treated to a two-and-a-half-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!”

So far, the tour has played to over 2 million fans, making it the largest attended Kiss tour since the Reunion tour in 1996.
