KISS release photos from final rehearsal for summer tour with Def Leppard

KISS have released some photos from their final rehearsal for their summer North American tour with Def Leppard, which kicks off June 23 in West Valley City, Utah.

The band are sharing images of Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons arriving at the USANA Amphitheatre on Sunday, as well as a photo from the stage during a full production rehearsal.

The KISS / Def Leppard tour will hit more than 40 cities across North America, eventually wrapping up in Houston, Texas on August 31.

The band’s latest greatest hits package, “KISS 40”, recently debuted at No. 30 on the US Billboard 200.

The 40-track collection presents one song from every major album release by the group, live selections and “Reputation”, an unreleased demo from 1977.

The new Billboard entry is KISS’ 35th on the Billboard 200, moving the band into third place for the third-most charted albums among American bands, behind only the Beach Boys at 48 and the Grateful Dead at 60.
