With combined album sales of almost 200 million, KISS and Motley Crue are dominant powerhouses of rock music, with more than 30 chart-topping hits, countless sold out tours and awards and accolades from around the world. This is the first time KISS and Motley Crue will share a stage since 1982. 

KISS consists of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.  Motley Crue consists of Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee.

KISS are still at the height of their popularity, with 3,000 licensed merchandise products, including the KISS golf course in Las Vegas and a new album. KISS has broken box office records set by The Beatles and Elvis.  Motley Crue just completed a sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The band will release a brand new song due out this spring. Motley Crue’s New York Times bestselling book The Dirt is  being adapted into a major motion picture.  Last month, the band appeared  in one of the highest rated Super Bowl ads of all time for the KIA Optima.
