KISS: Since 1973, Paul “Starchild” Stanley and Gene “The Demon” Simmons have rock and rolled all nite, partied every day, and maybe taken the occasional cat nap as leaders of the fire-breathing, Rock of Roll Hall of Fame–inducted KISS. Expect costumes, pyrotechnics, extreme tongue gestures, feats of anti-gravity, and to ”Shout It Out Loud” as you take up residency in “Detroit Rock City.”
Def Leppard: Joe Elliot’s vocal gusto, Phil Collen’s matchbook-striking riffs, and Rick “The Thunder God” Allen’s drumming bombast helped these Brit-metal gods sell more than 100 million records and keep the charts clogged for decades with anthems such as “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Animal.”
The Flaming Lips: With more than three decades of psych-rock—including 2002’s celebrated Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots—under their plastic-festooned belts, Wayne Coyne and company famously manifests their harmonies and vivid imagery in the form of animal costumes, cartoonish accessories, and giant plastic balls. Expect originals as well as collaborative Beatles covers from their most recent album, With a Little Help from My Fwends.
Sebastian Bach: His new release, Give ‘Em Hell, is a return to form for the sometime Broadway star, sometime country singer, and sometime backing vocalist for Axl Rose. Expect solo tracks along with Skid Row classics such as “Slave to the Grind” and “Youth Gone Wild.”
Kansas: The prog-rock luminaries behind ’70s epics such as “Carry On Wayward Son” and “Point of Know Return” continue crafting catchy melodies and symphonic compositions, and give audiences the chance to reflect upon their own chemical makeup with the gorgeous “Dust in the Wind.”
Scott Stapp: The former lead singer of Creed brings the same soul-searching lyrics and volcanic vocals to his solo work, including 2013’s Proof of Life. Like a redwood tree or a Smaug, the years have made him more powerful.
Also Appearing: The White Buffalo | Surfer Blood | Vintage Trouble | Raven Eye | and about 90 other bands to be announced
