David Lee Roth Will Open for KISS
It has been confirmed that Kiss will have former Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth opening for them on their “End of the Road” tour. The tour will resume next year. Tickets are already on sale for 43 dates going from February to October of next year. Roth has a residency in Las Vegas coming up next January and he promises the shows will be packed with Van Halen classics.
Kiss and Van Halen have had a rather interesting history together. Back in 1976 bassist Gene Simmons claims to have “discovered” the band and even recorded demos with them. He even signed them to his production company, but couldn’t seem to get his manager or label interested in the band.
Kiss’ final show will take place in New York on July 17, 2021. KIss’ manager indicated that past members of the group are invited to the final show but who knows whether they will show up. Check out the remainder of Kiss’ shows below!

Dirty Honey Talks About Hanging Out With Guns N’ Roses
Dirty Honey who opened for Guns N’ Rose sat both of their Las Vegas shows last month gave an interview to AL.com and talked about hanging out with Axl Rose of Guns N’ Roses. Check out the exchange below!
And from Dirty Honey opening for Guns N’ Roses?
Axl with his voice, warming up and cooling down even after shows, and I got to meet him too, which was pretty cool. Just the level of professionalism, the way their crew operated, there’s no messing around on that show. And that’s probably one of the reasons why it’s working, you know? There’s no chaos anymore. There’s no drugs and booze backstage. It’s pretty chill.
What was your interaction with Axl Rose like?
It was pretty interesting. [Laughs] Yeah, my manager introduced me to him. Axl was very nice and very gracious, too. And I got to chat with him about things like Netflix and TV shows for about a half an hour and the whole time I was like pinching myself.
Motley Crue Makes Top Ten Searched Artists for 2019 According to Google
Google recently released its “Year in Search 2019” list, and Motley Crue made the top 10 list of trending searches when looking at musician artists
Motley Crue took the number 6 spot of the list of trending artists in the “Musicians and Bands Category.” The list also included hip hop and acts from other genres. To no one’ssurprise Rapper Lil Nas X took the number one spot.
To no surprise the peak number of Motley Crue searches happened in late Marhc during the same time the band’s biopic the “The Dirt” was released on Netflix. According to Google’s “Interest Over Time” table in the Motley Crue results section, Mar. 24-30 was the peak of trending Crue searches. This shouldn’t be a surprise since March 22, 2019 was the release of their Netflix “The Dirt” documentary. Other peak search periods for Motley Crue were Nov. 17-23 and Dec. 8-14, which of course happened around the time they announced their 2020 tour details.
