Kiss and Def Leppard Announce 40-Date 2014 Summer Tour

Kiss Def Leppard 2014 Tour

 

Kiss and Def Leppard have made their long-rumored tour team-up official. The two popular bands will share the stage at 40 venues across North America this summer, beginning June 23 in West Valley City, Utah.

All nine members of the two groups seemed to be in a fantastic mood during the Los Angeles-based press conference today, trading jokes about weight, ages, hair and inter-band relationships. Def Leppard singer Joe Elliot even offered a theory about the (relatively) minor earthquake that rocked the city earlier in the day: “I think it was Gene [Simmons], he dropped his wallet.”

Everyone got more serious when they spoke of the charitable aspect of the tour. Simmons explained that much like Kiss’ last stateside trek, a dollar from each ticket will be donated to various wounded warrior organizations, to support “our proud military, [who] make freedom possible.” Elliot explained that the choice was an easy one for Def Leppard as well, seeing as how “we’ve got our own wounded warrior here,” a reference to drummer Rick Allen, who famously lost an arm in a 1984 car crash.

One or more veterans will also be hired to work on the tour as part of the “Hiring Our Heroes’ campaign, which Kiss previously supported on their 2012 tour. In addition, military personnel will have first crack at concert tickets with a special pre-sale at Military.com starting Tuesday, March 18 at 10AM local time.
