VIDEO: KISS and Def Leppard wrap up summer tour in Houston

KISS and Def Leppard wrapped up their summer tour at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston, Texas on Sunday, and video from the show is available.

“The numbers for the US 40th Anniversary Tour say it all!,” posted KISS. “42 shows. Over 600,000 fans. Amazing and thank YOU!”

The trek, which began June 23 in West Valley City, Utah, saw both acts playing headline sets to fans across North America.

Up next, KISS will perform their first Las Vegas residency this fall.

“KISS Rocks Vegas” will see the band play 9 shows at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino between November 5th and 23rd.

KISS are following in the footsteps of several other rockers who paved the way with successful extended Vegas runs, including Carlos Santana, Guns N’ Roses, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Rod Stewart and Meat Loaf, among others.

Def Leppard, meanwhile, will perform two shows in Mexico this week before playing the pre-game show at the first of this year's three NFL International Series games on Sunday, September 28, when the Oakland Raiders host the Miami Dolphins at London’s Wembley Stadium.
