KISS and Def Leppard Take Their Heroes Tour – and Military Discounts - on the Road to Support the USO

Thursday, April 10, 2014

From staff reports  

They’re going to rock ‘n roll all night on a stage near you – and do some good for troops while they’re at it.  

KISS and Def Leppard are going on tour this summer to benefit military organizations, including the USO. The legendary rock groups announced their Heroes Tour during a press event at the House of Blues in Los Angeles on March 17. The tour – which starts June 23 in Utah – will cover more than 40 dates coast-to-coast. A dollar from each ticket sold will be split among multiple military support organizations, including the USO.  

“You should know this is not the first time we’ve done this,” KISS’ Gene Simmons said. “For us, it’s not about telling the press or anything like that. It’s the least we can do just to be grateful that we have our military.”  

As an additional hat tip to the military community, troops who want to check out the show can visit kissonline.com/heroes for discount details.
