Kiss is alive.
More than 30 years after their seminal live album was recorded in part during a show at Cobo Arena in Detroit, the facepainting rockers are back with a new CD and North American tour, which kicks off tomorrow -- in Detroit Rock City, of course.
Lead singer Paul Stanley says the Cobo show and another on Saturday will be "an intimate moment with a city and the people who were pivotal in helping to make Kiss what it is."
Stanley says the band will play the songs that made up 1975's "Alive!" as well as a few choice favorites. He also expects to perform "Modern Day Delilah" off the upcoming "Sonic Boom," the band's first studio album in 11 years.
After the Detroit shows, Kiss heads to Cleveland and London, Ontario, early next week.
