KISS TO TOUR WITH DEF LEPPARD?
According to KissKollector.com, KISS manager Doc McGhee has confirmed that KISS are in talks with DEF LEPPARD about possibly touring together next year. As reported here yesterday, KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons has told the Associated Press that KISS will take a break from touring following their final dates with AEROSMITH later this month and will return to the road in April. A September 2004 European outing is also possible, according to McGhee.So whatever happened to KISS' much-hyped retirement from touring?
"That had to do with Ace Frehley and Peter Criss," says Gene of the bandmates who, along with Paul Stanley and himself, comprised the original KISS lineup.
"Peter is now healthy. Ace has had a back-and-forth battle with substances, and he told me if he didn't get off the road, he was going to kill himself," says Gene.
In other news, Simmons' much-hyped magazine, Gene Simmons Tongue, has apparently gone "on hiatus" following the publication of its fifth issue. According to a posting from publisher Allen Tuller on the magazine's official web site, "Gene is on tour with AEROSMITH and the tour has been extended indefinitely. With this in mind, we felt it was only fair to go on hiatus until Gene is involved in the publication of the magazine on a day-today basis and the tour schedule simply does not allow sufficient time right now to devote to publishing the next issue of GST." There is no word right now as to when or if the magazine will resume publication.
In related news, former KISS drummer Eric Singer (ALICE COOPER, BLACK SABBATH) played a few songs with QUEEN in South Africa for 46664 - The Concert, hosted by Nelson Mandela, at Green Point Stadium in Cape Town. Other acts on the bill included EURYTHMICS, BOB GELDOF, BEYONCE, PAUL OAKENFIELD, THE CORRS and PETER GABRIEL. People were treated to over five hours of performances by international artists, plus a speech from Nelson Mandela. The concert, inspired by former president Mandela, aimed to raise awareness of the global HIV/AIDS pandemic, as well as funds for South Africa.
