ROCK LEGENDS KISS and MÖTLEY CRÜE WRAP 2012 SUMMER TOUR AND DONATE IN EXCESS OF $450,000 TO CHARITY

| 28 September 2012 | Reply

LOS ANGELES, CA (September 27, 2012)  KISS and MÖTLEY CRÜE, two of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time, have wrapped this summer’s biggest rock event, THE TOUR co-headlining 41 cities with nearly 500,000 fans in attendance over two months. Along the route, the two bands proudly gave back more than $450,000 to charities including Hiring Our Heroes, Aurora Victim’s Relief Fund, Operation Homefront, Skylar Neil Foundation, Spondylitis Association of America and the Augusta Warrior Project.

“It’s been an amazing kick ass summer for us and a serious blast to share the stage again with Kiss three decades after our first tour together. We feel grateful and fortunate to have been given the opportunity to support different charitable organizations throughout THE TOUR who work so hard every day to provide relief and make life better for our fellow Americans,” said Nikki Sixx– MÖTLEY CRÜE

“It’s a privilege to be in a position that enables us to give back to the community through various charities and also raise everyone’s awareness of these worthy causes,” said Paul Stanley– KISS.

With combined album sales of almost 200 million, KISS and MÖTLEY CRÜE are more than just iconic; they remain today as the dominant powerhouses of rock music tallying 30+ chart-topping hits, countless sold out tours and awards and accolades from around the world. Known for their elaborate and spectacular stage shows, both bands present fans with the ultimate concert experience featuring the most impressive lighting and sound production ever, as well as their signature over-the-top pyrotechnics. This is the first time KISS and MÖTLEY CRÜE shared a stage since 1982.

KISS consists of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. MÖTLEY CRÜE consists of Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee.

These veterans of the music business are still at the height of their popularity. KISS is the juggernaut of them all.  On October 9th KISS will release their 20th studio album, Monster,  which features their chart topping single “Hell Or Hallelujah”.  With 3,000 licensed merchandise products, including the KISS mini-golf course in Las Vegas and recently announced partnerships with Hello Kitty and Family Guy, KISS continues to rock generation after generation.  MÖTLEY CRÜE is the first rock band in history to have just completed an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The band is best known for continuing to reinvent not only their live show (with mind blowing elements such as Tommy Lee’s 360 drum roller coaster) and music (brand new song SEX was released earlier this spring), but remain on the cutting edge via innovative social media interaction.  MÖTLEY CRÜE’s New York Times bestselling book The Dirt is currently being adapted into a major motion picture. In February 2012, the band was featured in the award winning and one of the highest rated Super Bowl ads of all time for the KIA Optima.
