Get excited, Kiss Army, because the Starchild, the Demon, the Spaceman and the Catman are on the prowl yet again. Seminal 70s rockers Kiss have just announced their Kiss Alive 35 Tour and it's rolling through Glendale.
Not a fan of overblown pyrotechnics and Jewish dudes in 1970s facepaint? Then let gypsy rockers Gogol Bordello's high-energy, oft-bizarre stage act satiate your needs. The self-proclaimed gypsy-punks are coming through the Marquee Theatre in support of their new, first ever live collection, Live From Axis Mundi.
Why stop at Kiss and Gogol Bordello? King Khan & BBQ Show have also announced a date in The Valley.
Canadian garage rockers King Khan & BBQ Show will be blowing through their favorite Phoenix join The Rhythm Room on Monday, November 16. Their latest album, Invisible Girl, will be released November 3, just in time for the band to make it to Phoenix.
Gogol Bordello will play Tempe's Marquee Theatre Tuesday, October 20 with Apostle of Hustle in support. Tickets can be found here.
And then there's Kiss, who, of course, have to make a ridiculous press release concerning their upcoming tour, which will stop at Jobing.com Arena Tuesday, December 1. It reads as such:
This incredible show will feature a new stage set, pyro effects that only the "hottest band in the world" (thank God that blatant conjecture is in quotations) could deliver and all new costumes. Fans will be treated to a 2 1/2 hour set of rock's greatest hits (no quotations there, unfortunately) 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.
You can expect to get your hands on a copy of SONIC BOOM, the band's first new material in 11 years, exclusively at all WalMart locations, walmart.com and Sam's Club locations beginning October 6.
Some dudes who play instruments and call themselves Buckcherry will be touring in support.
Don't get me wrong, I like to rock and roll all night and part of every day. Behold:
