It's simply called "The Tour," and it's coming Aug. 26 to Tulsa's BOK Center.
Rock icons KISS and Motley Crue co-headline the event. Tickets for the all-ages show are $39, $59, $99 and $127, plus fees, and go on sale noon March 30 via tulsaworld.com/bok, Arby's Box Office at the BOK Center, all Tickets.com outlets, or by calling 866-7-BOKCTR.
It's the first time the bands will share a stage since 1982.
KISS' own Paul Stanley said recently that the band planned a 40-plus city tour of the U.S.
It will be the second time KISS has headlined the BOK Center.
KISS is Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. Motley Crue members are Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee.
The bands' combined album sales top 200 million. Both are well-known for elaborate stage production, including lighting, pyrotechnics and sound.
Both bands had "countdown clocks" posted to their official websites before Tuesday's 4 p.m. announcement. In a somewhat anti-climactic moment, both sites postponed official announcements until 4:30 p.m.
