Kiss will return to the scene of the crime this fall.
The veteran rockers will perform on Sept. 25 at Cobo Arena -- where it recorded its breakthrough live album "Kiss Alive!" and parts of "Kiss Alive II" -- as part of its Kiss Alive 35 tour. The group will also be previewing the Oct. 6 release of "Sonic Boom," its first new album in a decade.
"Sonic Boom" -- which Kiss bassist Gene Simmons calls "the best new record we've done since 'Destroyer.' It is 'Rock And Roll Over' meets 'Love Gun.' " -- is a three-CD set that will be sold exclusively at Walmart properties. One disc features news songs produced by Kiss frontman Paul Stanley, while another sports a set of re-recorded greatest hits. "Sonic Boom" also includes a DVD filmed at a concert earlier this year in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The entire "Sonic Boom" package will retail for $12.
Tickets for Kiss' concert at Cobo, which is due for demolition in the new Cobo Hall expansion plan, go on sale at 5 p.m. Friday (Aug. 21) at the box office and Ticketmaster. Prices are $128, $78, $49 and $25. Buckcherry will open the show.
