KISS and Def Leppard to Tour?

by Mark Cartwright

Would you pay to see Def Leppard and KISS in concert together?  Word and rumors are swirling that the two bands may tour together this summer.  But it makes me wonder which band would headline.  KISS obviously has the more elaborate stage show, but Def Leppard has more true hits, at least off the top of my head.  While KISS can tout Beth, Rock and Roll all Night, Shout it Out Loud, Lick it Up, and Detroit Rock City, they can't match Def Leppard's string of hits from the High 'N' Dry, Pyromania and Hysteria albums.  I would think that ultimately, the fact that KISS relies so heavily on their stage production will sway the final decision in the direction of KISS.  (That and the fact that there are some pretty big egos involved.)
