Listen to KISS on iHeartRadio

KISS has big plans for their upcoming tour.  The band's blood-spitting bassist Gene Simmons told fans at the KISS Fan Expo in Indianapolis the group's new stage show features a giant spider that's "beyond anything" they've done before.  

Simmons also says their set will feature a 70-foot video screen backdrop, that KISS will rise up and "levitate and go 30 rows into the audience," and they'll play some songs as well. 

The rocker admits that their new stage production "costs a fortune," but they wanted to do something "spectacular" for the fans. 

KISS will launch their 2013 Monster Tour in Stockholm on June 1st and play a series of Canadian dates in July.  The band's U.S. run begins in Gilford, New Hampshire on August 7th.
