KISS is currently taking part in an Australian tour with very special guests MÖTLEY CRÜE.
Presented by McManus Entertainment, the summer’s biggest, baddest rock tour is hitting Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Mackay and Adelaide, with guests Irish rockers THIN LIZZY along for the ride (except Adelaide).
“Monster”, the 20th studio album from KISS, sold 56,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart.
KISS‘ previous CD, “Sonic Boom”, opened with 108,000 units back in October 2009 to enter the chart at No. 2. This marked the band’s highest-charting LP ever.
KISS has notched nine Top 10 albums, according to Billboard.com. Its previous highest-charting set was 1998’s “Psycho Circus”, which debuted and peaked at No. 3 with 110,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The group’s other high-charting sets include 1975’s “Alive!” (No. 9), 1977’s “Love Gun” (No. 4) and 1992’s “Revenge” (No. 6).
