KISS and Motley Crue have revealed plans to join forces for a summer tour. The veteran rockers will bring what they are promising to be “the summer’s biggest, baddest rock tour” to over 40 cities from July through September. They’ll hit Massachusetts for a show in Comcast Center in Mansfield on Sunday, September 16. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $38 to $158.50, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

Simply called “The Tour”, fans can expect each of the bands to deliver a 90-minute set packed with greatest hits. KISS will close every night. The summer outing marks the first time the two acts have shared the same stage since Motley Crue opened five dates for KISS in 1982.

KISS are expected to release their 20th studio album, Monster, later this year. As with their last album, 2009’s Sonic Boom, the album is being co-produced by lead singer Paul Stanley and Greg Collins.

Motley Crue’s last offering of all new material was 2008’s Saints of Los Angeles. The band celebrated their 30th anniversary last year by touring with with Poison and the New York Dolls.

The tour will end on September 23 at the Comcast Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut.
