Def Leppard and KISS Reveal Tour Plans

03/18/2014
.
As expected, Def Leppard and KISS announced on Monday that they will be teaming up for a North American tour this summer and they also revealed that the trek will benefit military charities.

The bands made the announcement during a press conference in Los Angeles. The tour is scheduled to get underway on June 23rd at USANA Amphitheater in West Valley City, UT.

ABC reports that one dollar from each ticket sold will go to military charities and Def Leppard announced that those charities include USO, Hiring Our Heroes, Project Resiliency/The Raven Drum Foundation, August Warrior Project and the Wounded Warrior Project.

Members of the military will also be given access to a special ticket pre-sale on Military.com where they will be offered discounted tickets to the upcoming shows.

Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott explained during the press conference that although KISS will be closing each show, there won't be competition between the bands on the tour, "Certain people think it's gonna be competitive, you know, and I just don't see it as competitive," he said. "These two great bands that are gonna be playing for the same amount of time -- it's joint forces. I mean, I don't see it as competitive at all."

Paul Stanley of KISS added, "I think this all comes down to pride. You know, rivalry, who's gonna be better...I think this is about going out and being your best.

"Because when you're at your best, they get the best. It's all about giving the audience what they deserve and we'll sleep very contently tonight, knowing that we're doing this together."

It was also revealed that aside from the North American dates the tour may be extended to include international dates, according to ABC.
