KISS and Def Leppard to pump it up at White River | Concert preview

(Brian Lowe)

(Brian Lowe)

KISS and Def Leppard team up for a headbanging, tongue-wagging night of hard rock Sunday in Auburn. Visiting more than 40 cities, the tandem tour celebrates KISS’ 40th year in music, as well as the band’s induction this year into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Collectively, the two bands have sold more than 200 million albums.

KISS, featuring Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer, has entertained more than two generations of fans with their flamboyant, decibel-be-damned live shows. For each new crop of heavy-metal fans, attending a KISS show can be a rite of passage.

The same can be said of Def Leppard, featuring Joe Elliott, Vivian Campbell, Phil Collen, Rick “Sav” Savage and Rick Allen. The joint tour supports U.S. military personnel, who got first dibs on tickets in a pre-sale March 18 (along with members of the bands’ respective fan clubs).

Kiss, Def Leppard

7 p.m. Sunday, White River Amphitheatre, 40601 Auburn Enumclaw Road, Auburn; $32.50-$149.50 (800-745-3000 or www.ticketmaster.com).
