Def Leppard and KISS will reportedly hold a joint press conference announcing their summer tour in Los Angeles on Monday 17th March.

This was hinted at by Vivian earlier this week and now appears to be happening.

ABC News radio have told US radio stations a press conference will happen on 17th March and be streamed online at Live Nation's website. As expected they say the tour will start and June and run through August. KISS are said to be closing every show. All details will of course be announced in full next week.

KISS/Motley Crue announced their "The Tour" together in March 2012 at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles in a similar event that was also streamed online.

As seen above the last time the band's all met together was in May 2006 at the end of the Rock Honors show in Las Vegas. One of only two times they've been on the same bill. The other being the June 2008 Arrow Rock Festival in Nijmegen, Holland.
