Veteran hard rock group KISS has finally announced the itinerary for its upcoming Alive 35 North American Tour. The band first mentioned its plans for a fall tour about four months ago when it asked fans to cast online votes to bring the tour to their city. The virtual voting process is now over, and 40 cities have been marked for concerts.
Singer Jim Lindberg is ending his nearly 20-year stint with Pennywise to focus on other works, but the band isn’t calling it quits just yet. The three remaining members have reiterated their commitment to the band and are looking for a replacement frontman. Finally, singer-songwriter Joshua Radin has lined up a two-leg tour of the United States and Canada for this fall. Concerts are booked from early September through late November.
