Press release:

As they celebrate 35 years of rockin', KISS today announced the dates of the KISS Alive 35 North American tour. The tour kicks off with a rapidly-selling, special multiple-show engagement in Detroit Rock City beginning September 25th, where KISS will be playing the classic album that started it all: KISS Alive! The tour leg will then hit more than 40 additional cities before concluding in December.

This incredible show will feature a new stage set, pyro effects that only the "hottest band in the world" could deliver, and all new costumes. Fans will be treated to a 2˝ hour set of some of rock's greatest hits, including 'Rock and Roll All Nite', 'I Was Made For Lovin' You', 'Detroit Rock City', 'God Gave Rock & Roll to You' and 'Shout It Out Loud', as well as songs from the band's new album Sonic Boom. BUCKCHERRY will be main support on all of the KISS Alive 35 North American dates.

Said Gene Simmons, "For 35 years, KISS raised the bar for what a rock concert should really be. This year is no different - all new, all killer... all KISS! The master's class in rock is in session! KISS rules. Oh yeah!"

"Bigger IS better!" said Paul Stanley. "Sonic Boom is our future and KISS Alive is our proud past. On this tour you get KISS Alive plus a slew of other classics and soon to be classics. New stage, new battle gear and a pyro arsenal that will again show everyone that there is only one KISS!"

After completing their biggest tour ever of South America, selling out stadiums once again in Europe, and leaving fans clamoring for more in Australia, KISS is excited to give North America its due. KISS Alive 35 North America marks the first leg of the world's first fan-routed tour - more than 10,000 individual cities across Canada and the U.S. mounted their own unique campaigns to bring KISS to their towns. The fans have spoken, the votes have been tabulated, and the waiting is over as KISS unveils the first markets (follows).

Sonic Boom - KISS' highly-anticipated album, and its first new material in 11 years - will be released exclusively at Walmart, Walmart.com and Sam's Club retail locations beginning October 6. Produced by the band's Paul Stanley in Los Angeles, the album is the centerpiece of a three-disc set that also features a completely re-recorded greatest hits CD as well as a live DVD shot in Argentina during the band's recent, record-breaking KISS ALIVE 35 South American tour. Tracks made famous on KISS Alive - including 'Rock and Roll All Nite', 'Deuce', 'Black Diamond', and 'Hotter Than Hell' - are well represented on the greatest hits disc included with Sonic Boom. The CD/DVD set will retail for $12, with pre-orders starting in September on Walmart.com before the official album release.

Buckcherry are releasing an enhanced version of Black Butterfly on September 8 and their first live album, LIVE & LOUD 2009 on September 29. The new edition of Black Butterfly includes 'Highway Star', the theme song for TNT's NASCAR coverage, as well as the super-sized video for the track. Black Butterfly was released in September of last year and brought the band their first Top 10 album debut. It has also earned the titles of Album of the Year by Entertainment Weekly and Best Rock Album by iTunes critics in 2008. Live & Loud 2009 will feature the band's biggest hits such as 'Sorry', 'Crazy Bitch', 'Lit Up', 'Ridin'' and 'Everything', as well as songs from Black Butterfly.
