KISS — sorry: Rock and Roll Hall of Famers KISS — team up with Def Leppard for a big summer tour, which arrives at the XFINITY Theatre in Hartford on Sunday, Aug. 10. Tickets are $26.50 (lawn) up to $163.50.

If you’re keeping score at home: KISS now consists of longtime members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer. (No Ace or Peter.) Def Leppard’s lineup — singer Joe Elliott, guitarist Vivian Campbell, guitarist Phil Collen, bassist Rick “Sav” Savage and drummer Rick Allen — has been around for some time.

The tour reaches more than 40 cities throughout North America. Tickets go on sale starting on Friday, March 21 through (or by using the Live Nation mobile app).

To honor members of the military, the bands will offer pre-sale tickets to military personnel beginning on Tuesday, March 18 at 10 a.m. local time.
