Hard rock heavyweight KISS will reclaim the road for its latest North American tour leg at the end of the summer. The Hottest Show on Earth Tour kicks off July 23 at Frontier Days in Cheyenne, WY.

The 28-date itinerary is currently booked through September 24 at Cricket Wireless Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ. Live Nation is producing the late summer outing, which will visit a mix of arenas and amphitheatres across North America.

Performance dates include August 6 at Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ; August 21 at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, VA; and September 11 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, MI. One Canadian market is featured on the current itinerary in the form of a September 10 gig at Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto, ON.

Tickets are already on sale for a couple special events on KISS’ calendar: an August 9 appearance at the Indiana State Fair, and a September 4 set at the Minnesota State Fair.

Onsales for the Hottest Show on Earth begin June 4 for select dates of the tour. One dollar from each ticket will be donated to the U.S. Armed Forces’ Wounded Warriors Project. Market-specific onsale dates and ticket prices have not been announced, but will be updated on KISS’ official Web site as they become available.

The summer 2010 calendar is a follow-up to last year’s Alive 35 Tour, which celebrated the 35th anniversary of KISS’s 1974 debut album while simultaneously promoting “Sonic Boom,” the band’s first studio album in more than a decade.

The band is currently overseas completing the Sonic Boom Over Europe Tour. That trek continues on May 25 with a show at Leipzig Arena in Leipzig, GER, and concludes June 27 at the Graspop Festival in Dessel, BEL.
