KISS to Announce Tour to Cities Chosen By Fan Vote

From Pollstar today:

Simmons, along with Paul Stanley, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer, will make an official announcement in a video scheduled to appear on KISS Online at 3 p.m. today Eastern Daylight Time (high noon on the West Coast). Immediately following the announcement, fans will be able to cast their votes at to determine where KISS will play in the U.S. and Canada.

Plus, just for voting, fans will have an opportunity to purchase pre-sale tickets prior to the general onsale. That is, as soon as the band figures out where the fans want them to play. As an added incentive, fans are also encouraged to create their own viral KISS vids online, with the best of the best being shown in individual towns and cities each night before the band takes the stage.

“KISS has never followed the rules – we have always broken them. KISS has never listened to critics – we have always listened only to the fans,” Simmons said. “It’s time to give back to the fans with bigger shows and longer set lists. And for the first time anywhere, we want our fans to tell us where they want us, and when.”
