KISS Confirm New Las Vegas Residency

12th August 2021 | Category: Las Vegas

KISS will kick off their long-rumored second Las Vegas residency at the end of the year.

The news of the band’s return to Las Vegas was broken by bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons during an interview at Animazing Gallery at The Venetian Grand Canal Shoppes, previewing his “ArtWorks” collection of paintings and sketches.

Asked if KISS will be coming back for a second Las Vegas residency, Simmons said: 

“We are. My favorite band are gonna be at Zappos [Theater at Planet Hollywood] in Las Vegas starting December 27. That’s right, even through New Year’s. And we’ll be here through February. But in the middle of the KISS tour that’s going around the world.”

The legendary rockers previously performed in Sin City in November 2014 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel And Casino. 

Speaking to Las Vegas Weekly, KISS frontman Paul Stanley stated about how the idea for the residency came about: 

“To spend as much time as we do in Vegas and to live as close as we do, the idea of doing a residency and leaving our stage setup, as opposed to breaking it down nightly, was really appealing.”

He continued: 

“We [had] just finished 42 cities and played for 600,000 people, but that meant that every night the show got disassembled and moved. There’s something appealing and challenging about building a set that doesn’t have to be moved. You don’t have to take into account the practicality of it, being able to be broken down constantly and reassembled. So this was something that we had wanted to do for quite a while; it was just a matter of making sure we found people who were in agreement on how to do it. The Joint was the natural place to do it.”

KISS are currently on the ‘End Of The Road’ farewell tour, which was originally scheduled to conclude on July 17, 2021 in New York City, but is now expected to last well into 2022.

Aerosmith UK and European Tour Postponed Until 2022

25th February 2021 | Category: Concerts,Las Vegas

Aerosmith have rescheduled their upcoming UK and European tour dates to 2022 due to COVID-19.

The legendary band had been hoping to tour in June of this year after their initial 2020 live plans were scrapped due to the worldwide health crisis.

Aerosmith’s forthcoming live dates in the UK and Europe have been pushed back for a second time, with the band now set to complete a series of shows in June and July 2022.

“Due to current conditions and for the safety of our fans, the 2021 European Tour has been rescheduled to 2022,” the band said in an official statement. “Please stay tuned for more information regarding the new dates or contact your point of purchase. All tickets will be valid for new dates.”

The rescheduled jaunt includes three UK dates in London, Manchester and Sheffield – details of which you can see here:

June 22 – The O2, London

June 28 – Manchester Arena, Manchester

July 1 – FlyDSA Arena, Sheffield

The upcoming run follows their ‘Deuces Are Wild’ Las Vegas residency.

The ‘I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing’ rockers last played this side of the pond in 2017, when they headlined Download Festival, in what was then-assumed to be their last-ever UK show.

Meanwhile, guitarist Joe Perry previously said he’d like to record a new album with Aerosmith “when the time is right”.

The 70-year-old musician said he was feeling inspired to make new music with the group – also including Joey Kramer, Brad Whitford, and Tom Hamilton – after his time in the studio with his Hollywood Vampires’ bandmates Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp working on their 2019 LP ‘Rise’.

He said at the time: “I had just finished working on my last solo album [before the new Hollywood Vampires album], so I had been in the studio for the three or four months before we started on the Vampires record.

“So I was already rolling in the studio. It doesn’t take much to get me going — I love to record. So, when the time is right, Aerosmith will come around to do another record.”

Aerosmith’s last studio album was 2012’s ‘Music from Another Dimension!’.

On her show, on April 16th, Clarkson premiered a motivational new song “I Dare You”.

She recorded alternate versions of the ballad in five different languages, which feature her singing alongside a different international artist, including Faouzia (Arabic), Zaz (French), Maya Buskila (Hebrew), Blas Cantó (Spanish) and Glasperlenspiel (German).

Urban, a four-time Grammy award winner, is exactly the type of artist The Colosseum wanted to book, thanks to his mass cross-genre appeal and pop-cultural recognition. The upgraded general admission area within the theatre will give the fans a chance for a more close-up experience than anywhere else in his Graffiti U arena performances.

“We knew we had to reopen a venue as iconic as The Colosseum in a big way. Keith Urban was a perfect choice,” said Amanda Moore, VP marketing for Live Nation Las Vegas. “Fans will have the opportunity to see one of the biggest names in music perform in an intimate setting for two nights only – an experience they can’t find anywhere else in the world.”
