When it comes to straight up rock and roll, you don’t get much more iconic than these two heavy hitters. That’s right, the legendary KISS and the almighty Def Leppard are joining up for 40+ date tour through N. American this summer. The tour kicks off June 23rd (my birthday) in West Valley City, UT and goes culminates with a performance on August 31st in Woodlands, TX.
The two bands have a combined album sales of over 200 million copies worldwide. KISS will be celebrating their 40th anniversary this year while Def Leppard are on year 37 (pfft, newbies…). Leppard’s last studio album was 2008’s Songs from the Sparkle Lounge while KISS last released Monster in 2012.
