KISS: New U.S. Tour Dates Announced / Guitar Center On-Stage competition

According to AOL’s Noisecreep, KISS has announced the next leg of its U.S. tour in support of the band’s latest studio album, “Sonic Boom”, featuring stops in both amphitheaters and arenas.

Instead of selecting an established band as support, KISS has teamed up with Guitar Center to discover a talented, unsigned act. The Guitar Center On-Stage competition will allow unsigned rock bands to compete for a chance to open for KISS at 22 different tour stops. The winning band will also receive a $10,000 Guitar Center shopping spree. Unsigned bands can begin registering June 1.
