Kiss, Motley Crue Hit Houston Together August 3

Kiss and Motley Crue are set to go on tour this year together, hitting the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion August 3, in the the thick of what will probably be a nasty, hot Texas summer.

What should they call this tour? Maybe the "Shout It Loud at the Devil Tour"? Or how about "Detroit Rock City Boy Blues"? Or maybe I am a nerd whose nerd-boner is showing very prominently for this tour, which should be bolstered by new material from both bands that everyone will pooh-pooh because it's the cool thing to do. Humorless buttholes will be the first against the wall when the revolution begins.

Kiss' new album, Monster, should be hitting shelves in June, with eight tracks already confirmed.

The fact of the matter is that this show will be pretty frickin' fun, considering the convergence of the two band's fan bases, and the promise of all the pyro involved.

It doesn't hurt that it has been telegraphed by the band in their personal blogs and in the press. Both bands have promised they will be bringing their full stage sets on this jaunt, playing 90-minute sets, and that Kiss will be closing each night.

Kiss' last appearance in Houston was for their sold-out RodeoHouston set about a year ago, and the Crue boys were here just last summer with Poison and the New York Dolls.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 23, at the usual outlets and will be available at The Pavilion Box Office, www.ticketmaster.com, www.livenation.com, 800-745-3000 and any Ticketmaster outlet.
