Kiss Releasing New Album; Tour To Follow

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.
