KISS: No Tour With QUEEN In The Works

KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley has shot down reports that KISS will be touring with QUEEN + PAUL RODGERS in 2007. reported yesterday that KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons told the "Dudley & Bob" morning show on Austin's classic rock station KLBJ that KISS will take out QUEEN + PAUL RODGERS on the band's 2007 tour. Gene said that both bands had talked during the "VH1: Rock Honors" show and agreed to hit the road together. In typical Gene fashion, he went on to claim in the interview that "QUEEN is playing with us, we're not playing with QUEEN."

However, a posting on KISS' official web site reads as follows:

"KissOnline received hundreds of emails asking about a rumored KISS/QUEEN tour, so Thursday night we asked Paul [Stanley] about the rumor. 'While the guys and I are huge fans and friends of QUEEN and Paul Rodgers, and touring together would be KISS tour plans with or without QUEEN are currently in the works,' Paul said.

"One tour that IS in the works, is the Paul Stanley 'Live To Win' tour, which will kick off in late October with 15-20 shows planned across the U.S." First rumored date: November 14 at the House of Blues in Hollywood, California.
