Kiss' Paul Stanley has confirmed reports the band is set to tour with Def Leppard.

Reports surfaced last week (ends14Mar14) the two groups were embarking on a series of North American dates together this summer (14) and now Stanley reveals the rockers will set out on a 40-city trek in June (14).

He says, "You have two bands who to one degree or another have stood the test of time and put them together and you'll have a great night of music... We couldn't pick a better band for this tour than Def Leppard to go out with us."
