KISS and Def Leppard will team up this summer for a 42-city North American tour.

The tour begins June 23rd in West Valley City, Utah, and wraps up August 31st in Woodlands, Texas. Tickets go on sale starting Friday.

It’ll be the first time the two bands have shared a bill, although they've run into each other at festivals. 

KISS did a similar co-headlining tour with Motley Crue in 2012.
