KISS Beat Van Halen and AC/DC in Las Vegas Residency Poll

(Gibson) With Motley Crue kicking off their second Las Vegas residency, and Def Leppard about to release a DVD and live album of theirs, readers of Metal Sludge have called for KISS to be the next band to stake out a patch of the Strip.

In a poll on Metal Sludge, KISS took out 766 votes, with Van Halen coming in second at 367. There was a big gap between second and third place though, with Aerosmith coming in at 62 votes and AC/DC following closely behind with 60, then Metallica with 40.

Def Leppard's Viva! HYSTERIA! album and will be released on October 18 in Europe and October 22 in North America. It captures the band's residency at the Hard Rock Hotel And Casino in Las Vegas, including their opening set as 'Ded Flatbird' playing obscure and rarely-played cuts before launching the show proper with a complete rendition of their mega-selling Hysteria album.

And now Mötley Crüe An Intimate Evening In Hell residency sees the Crue incorporating more fire than anything ever seen in a rock show before. As singer Vince Neil told the Las Vegas Sun's Robin Leach, "It's more than any rock group has ever produced or attempted. It really is entering the depths of hell. There's fire all around and fire coming down from above. There's no question this is the most dangerous theatrics ever created and far more than anything we expected. But, hey, this is Vegas, and we do bigger, bolder, badder, sleazier here better than any other place on Earth." more on this story
