KISS, Motley Crue announce Australian tour

KISS and Motley Crue have announced a 2013 Australian tour.

Following the pairing’s successful summer run in the US, the two classic rock acts will once again team up for a series of dates, set for Spring 2013, with Thin Lizzy opening the shows.

Not only has it been five long years since KISS last toured Australia, but 2013 marks a very special milestone for the band – their 40th anniversary. The New York band are touring in support of their 20th studio album, “Monster.”

Mötley Crüe toured Australia last year and they’ve recently become the first rock band in history to play a sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Brisbane rockers Diva Demolition have won the highly-prized local support act spot and will open all shows on the tour.
