Los Angeles, CA (May 27, 2009) – Legendary band KISS made headlines last month when they announced their U.S. and Canadian tour will be the world’s first to put fans in charge of where a tour is routed. Now, KISS is adding even more excitement to their tour as they announce the selection of Buckcherry as the opening act for all dates. This is destined to be the most explosive show of the year; and by partnering with Web site Eventful, fans will “Demand” exactly where KISS and will perform in (top-voted) North American markets beginning this September
Buckcherry fans can now join the hundreds of thousands of KISS fans that have voted to date at www.eventful.com/KISS. They have just six more weeks—until voting ends on June 30th— to “Demand” what cities they want to see the tour hit. No matter where the fans say—“from stadiums to cornfields”--if there are enough votes, the KISS tour will be there! And in order to keep the competition fair for smaller cities, final site selection will weigh population size versus total votes. More than 8,000 cities and towns are already represented on the fan-submitted list.
In conjunction with joining the tour, Buckcherry will run a “Talk To Me” promotion to support their latest single. Fans can call the Buckcherry hotline at 213-784-4536 and enter by leaving the band a message and voting on the Eventful widget on the band’s website http://www.Buckcherry.com. Fans all over North America can enter and Josh Todd or Keith Nelson from Buckcherry will call one winner in each of the chosen markets to tell the winner that they are coming to their city with KISS and that they have won the first pair of tickets to the show in their town. The contest ends June 30 at 11:59pm EST. The single impacts at active and mainstream rock radio on June 15.
