KISS and Motley Crue tour KISS and Motley Crue's 45 show US summer tour has already gone down as one helluva rock 'n' roll extravaganza, and now, finally, it's Australia's turn. Not only has it been five long years since KISS last toured Australia, but 2013 marks a very special milestone for this great band - their 40th anniversary. In all their bombastic and unstoppable glory, KISS will perform fan favourites from their treasure-trove of hits along with tracks from their 20th studio album Monster. Motley Crue last toured Australia in 2011, but let's face it, we can't get enough of them. They've recently become the first rock band in history to play an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and are best known for continuing to reinvent not only their live shows (with mind-blowing elements such as Tommy Lee's 360 drum roller coaster) and music, but remain on the cutting edge via social media interaction. With combined album sales of almost 200 million, KISS and Motley Crue are more than just iconic; they remain at the height of their popularity, the dominant powerhouses of rock music tallying 30+ chart-topping hits, countless sold out tours and awards and accolades from around the world. Known for their elaborate and spectacular stage shows, each band plans to give fans the ultimate concert experience with the most impressive lighting and sound production ever and their signature over-the-top pyrotechnics. KISS, Motley Crue and Thin Lizzy will perform at Perth Arena on Thursday, February 28; the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide on Sunday, March 3; Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Tuesday, March 5 and Wednesday, March 6; Allphones Arena in Sydney on Saturday, March 9 on Sunday, March 10; Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Tuesday, March 12; and Virgin Australia Stadium in Mackay on Saturday, March 16
