On Monday, nine famous men – four in heavy makeup – said they’re taking their guitars on the road to support the troops.
Kiss and Def Leppard announced their Heroes Tour during a press event at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. 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.
Troops who want to check out the show should visit kissonline.com/heroes for discount details.
