In other news, Melodic Rock is reporting that POISON and BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION have been confirmed as the support bands on KISS' upcoming U.S. tour, which is scheduled to kick off in June. KISS will be touring Australia and Japan without original drummer Peter Criss, who apparently opted not to extend his contractual agreement with the group following the band's recent U.S. dates with AEROSMITH. Replacing Criss on the tour will be longtime on-and-off KISS drummer Eric Singer, according to the web site of the band's Japanese concert promoter, UDO Artists Inc.
