Kiss — the face-painted, leather-clad band led by singer-bassist Gene Simmons and guitarist-vocalist Paul Stanley — is celebrating 40 years as a band this year. Founding members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss aren’t in the band anymore, replaced by lead guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer. The band is known for its massive stage pyrotechnics, and is soon to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Def Leppard started in England in the late ‘70s, and owned the ‘80s airwaves with their albums "Pyromania" (1983) and "Hysteria" (1987) — which produced such hits as "Photograph," "Rock of Ages" and "Pour Some Sugar on Me." The band is unique among long-running bands in that they have maintained the same line-up since 1982: singer Joe Elliott, bassist Rick Savage, drummer Rick Allen, and guitarists Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell.
Tickets for the Usana show go on sale Friday at 10 a.m., at Smith’s Tix.
