KISS' PAUL STANLEY Talks About Upcoming Australian Tour With MÖTLEY CRÜE, THIN LIZZY (Audio)

Australia's long-running rock station Triple M spoke to KISS frontman Paul Stanley about the band's upcoming Australian tour with very special guests MÖTLEY CRÜE. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

Presented by McManus Entertainment, the summer's biggest, baddest rock tour will hit Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Mackay and Adelaide with guests Irish rockers THIN LIZZY along for the ride (except Adelaide).

KISS and MÖTLEY CRÜE's 45-show U.S. summer tour has already gone down as one helluva rock'n'roll extravaganza and now, finally, its Australia's turn!

Not only has it been five long years since KISS last toured Australia, but 2013 marks a very special milestone for this great band — their 40th anniversary. In all their bombastic and unstoppable glory, KISS will perform fan favorites from their treasure-trove of hits along with tracks from their just–released 20th studio album, "Monster", which debuted at #7 on the ARIA chart.

MÖTLEY CRÜE recently become the first rock band in history to play an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The band is best known for continuing to reinvent not only their live show (with mind blowing elements such as Tommy Lee's 360 drum roller coaster) and music (brand new song due out soon), but remain on the cutting edge via social media interaction.

And if that wasn't enough, classic Irish rockers THIN LIZZY will be back in town with the line-up that has been winning over fans and critics alike for the past two years. Along with Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and Darren Wharton, the additions of vocalist Ricky Warwick, guitarist Damon Johnson and bass player Marco Mendoza, THIN LIZZY have been re-introducing their music to a whole new generation of fans to overwhelming success and now it's Australia's turn.

Brisbane up-and-comers DIVA DEMOLITION have won the highly-prized local support act spot and will open all shows on the tour.

The dates are as follows:

Feb. 28 - Perth Arena
Mar. 03 - Clipsal 500, Adelaide
Mar. 05 - Etihad Stadium, Melbourne
Mar. 09 - All Phones Arena, Sydney
Mar. 12 - Brisbane Entertainment Centre
Mar. 16 - Virgin Australia Stadium, Mackay
