    Aerosmith, Kiss Hitting The Road Together

    Bands to play arenas in North America this summer.

    by Jon Wiederhorn


    In the latest leg of what must be the longest farewell tour in rock history, Kiss will play arenas in North America this summer with Aerosmith.

    No dates have been scheduled yet, and it is unknown whether the bands will co-headline or if Kiss will go on last every night, according to a source close to Kiss.

    The planning has been long in the works. For more than a year, rumors have circulated that the two rock legends wanted to hit the road together, but their schedules didn't synchronize until now. Neither Kiss nor Aerosmith were available for comment.

    Kiss bassist and vocalist Gene Simmons originally went public on the issue in a February 2002 USA Today Web chat. "Would we like to play with Aerosmith? Sure," he wrote. "We've known each other for 30 years and actually played together for the first time three decades ago. We think they're terrific."

    The members of Kiss are currently preparing for a show with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in Australia on February 28. "I promise the result will be no less than a symphonic sonic boom," vocalist and guitarist Paul Stanley said on the band's official Web site, www.kissonline.com. "Beethoven and Mozart will rise up dancing with fists raised as we unleash a spectacle that will be both classic and classical. This time it's black tie and black leather."

    Just because Kiss are planning a symphony spectacular and a summer extravaganza doesn't mean they can't still find time for self-promotion. On January 10, Simmons and Stanley shot a TV spot for the Universal Orlando Resorts, and Simmons is still plugging his magazine Gene Simmons Tongue, which is currently working on its fourth issue.

    Kiss will also play three reunion shows at Budokan Hall in Tokyo on March 11, 12 and 13. While drummer Peter Criss will play these gigs, guitarist Ace Frehley has not yet officially signed on, the band's publicist said.

    When Aerosmith join Kiss on the road, they'll likely be supporting their upcoming blues-based album, on which they've recently started work.

    From: Billboard.com
    Aerosmith and Kiss will embark on a co-headlining North American tour beginning in August and running through October, sources confirm. The tour of approximately 40 dates will be produced by Clear Channel Entertainment and is expected to play 90% amphitheaters, with arenas and possibly a couple of stadiums also in the mix. Kiss will perform in full makeup, sources say, and Aerosmith will be touring in support of a new Columbia blues album. "We want to really try to get everybody in a room at the same time," bassist Tom Hamilton told Billboard.com about the album last September. "It's funny because it triggers all of the competition and uncomfortableness that we've always had going into the studio, and it's going to mean everybody is going to have to be open, vulnerable, and brave, and go in there and do that process like we used to do it." Aerosmith grossed nearly $40 million from touring in 2002. The group was recently nominated for the best rock performance by a duo or group with vocal for "Girls of Summer," drawn from last year's "O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits" compilation. Aerosmith has also signed on to appear at the Feb. 7 Salute to the Blues concert at New York's Radio City Music Hall. As for Kiss, the group grossed more than $60 million from its 2000-2001 "farewell" tour. As previously reported, Kiss will join the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra for a one-off Feb. 28 concert at the city's 48,000-capacity Telestra Dome. The group has also scheduled a March 11-13 stand at Tokyo's Budokan Hall.

    Two groups that are seperate but equal.

    An ugly bunch of guys without make-up and a bunch of not as ugly guys in make-up.

    I hear the tour is sponsord by Viagra. It is going to be billed as the "My Big Ten Inch Can't Rock & Roll All Night Anymore" tour.

    Pay $100 to see a KISS cover band featuring Portland's own Tommy Thayer?
