Kiss have announced a one-off London show for next month.
The arena rockers were due to headline this summer’s Sonisphere Festival along with Faith No More and Queen, but have scheduled the one-off London date instead after the festival was cancelled.
The band will play London’s HMV Forum on July 4, with tickets going on sale tomorrow (June 15). All the proceeds from the show are being donated to Help The Heroes charity.
Singer Paul Stanley said of the band’s reasons for doing the show: “The greatest national treasure of any free country is the army that defends it at all cost. Bringing attention to the obligation we all share to those returning heroes has been our mission in the US and now the UK. We pay tribute to those brave men and women and urge everyone to show their thanks with donations”.
The band will release the first single from their new album ‘Monster’ in July, with the full album itself set to drop in October. The album is the 20th of their career to date.
The tracklisting has yet to be formally confirmed, but songs titled ‘Hell Or Hallelujah’, ‘Born To Be A Sinner’, ‘Out Of This World’, ‘Are You Ready?’ and ‘Wall Of Sound’ are all reportedly set to feature on the album.
