They ought to call it the Big Hair Tour.
Def Leppard and KISS are going on tour together this summer. As a child of the ’80s, this is fantastic news, even if those guys are older than dirt. Did you know Gene Simmons is 64 years old? And that Joe Elliott is 54? And that Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen can still play the skins with just one arm?
KISS has been around for 40 YEARS and will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month. I don’t know if Def Leppard will ever get there, or even if it should, but I will jam “Rocket” every day of the week.
Anyway, let’s take to Twitter to see how folks have received the news of these legendary geriatric rockers getting together for a tour.
