KISS will embark on a world tour next summer in support of the first album by the band's original members in more than a decade, due early next year on Mercury.

KISS' management says that if all goes well in the studio, the band will begin touring in late June/early July, playing mostly indoor dates, with some stadiums in key markets. KISS had the top-grossing North American tour in 1996, pulling in $50 million, according to Amusement Business.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
