KISS & Motley Crue Announce Summer Tour: 'No Fake Bull****'...
"We're sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them," Gene Simmons says...
KISS and Motley Crue are hitting the road for a co-headlining tour -- dubbed simply "The Tour" -- this summer, the iconic rock acts announced on Tuesday. The 40-date North American tour will kick off in Bristow, Va., on July 20 and run through the end of the summer, with the hard rock groups each playing 90-minute sets. "These guys are the baddest band in the f***ing world," Motley Crue's Vince Neil said on stage with both bands at the Roosevelt Hotel on Tuesday. "Our very first tour was with [KISS], 1982. To be able to do it now is amazing." "Seeing them on stage, it was obvious back then that this was the next big thing," KISS' Paul Stanley added. "We talk about bang for buck, this will be the definition of bang for buck on this tour. If you want to see more bombs and artillery, you'll have to check out the military." Whether or not KISS bassist Gene Simmons' A&E reality show, "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," will follow the explosive tour was unclear. "Probably. Maybe… not," he said. But he had a clear answer to for the pop stars now invading stadiums once filled largely by rock acts. "We're sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them," Simmons said. "No fake bull****. Leave that to the Rihanna, Shmianna and anyone who ends their name with an 'A.'"
