English translation
Gene Simmons announced during an radio interview in the US that there will be tour together with Queen in 2007.

Doesn't say more, sorry

God I hope that's not true - Kiss are bound to want to headline, and most of their music just doesn't warrant it!

Brian has recently quoted something on his sopabox about Paul Stanley recently, so it could be that they've been talking?

I went to six of the QPR gigs last year and can safely say if they tour with KISS as some kind of double header tour I won't be going again!

I'm getting a bad feeling about this, but hey ho whatever gets them out there for me to see I guess. They did do that gig in the states a couple of months back with Kiss on the bill so I guess Jim might be doing deals with them even as we speak, still I can't see either being support for the other so maybe if it does happen it would be a double header tour, like Elton and Billy Joel. hmmmm well I guess Roger could get his green hair dye out again but I can't see Mr Rodgers in the black and steel platforms can you?

Well, if Queen does play first, at least we can get to bed early that night.

I believe tickets for Kiss & Aeromsmith in this area were around $150.

I really hope this is not true. I would not want to have to see KISS. I also have a feeling that the majority of the crowd would be KISS fans.

I cannot imagine such a tour in Europe - it would be one of the pathetic out-of-date act shows. If one of them does not fill a hall, take two or even more. The audience is usually a sentimental older crowd whining how great the 80s were and wearing their old clothes they don't fit into anymore - just horrible. Luckily, Queen + PR were much too successful last year to consider such a scenario.


I do not want any google ads here.

Not in the US. These type of tours happen all the time.

"In an interview on the Dudley & Bob morning show, on Austin’s Classic Rock station KLBJ, Gene Simmons stated that KISS will take out Queen + Paul Rodgers on the band’s 2007 tour. Gene said that both bands had talked during VH1’s Rock Honors show and – in true Gene style – in the interview he claims: “Queen is playing with us, we’re not playing with Queen.”

Oh my...
