And when major world-famous musicians are scheduled to play in Japan, there is usually an ad or article about it in the newspapers here.
KISS’s upcoming tour is mentioned in today’s paper:

It says “Seven years since their last Japan tour, the American hard rock band KISS”

    I just edited this post.

    I altered the tour dates to show more clearly which dates have been confirmed and which are tentative.

    And I added a picture of the Japanese flyer and of a newspaper article about the tour.

    In our tour (1975-1977) our son, a college student at the time was enraptured by the “Candy Girls” (or some such similar name. They were cute, perky and totally engaging.

      There are still plenty of J-pop groups like that nowadays.

      Not what I listen to, personally.

    We saw them last year, they were ok, Motley Crue was a lot better. They toured together and was totally worth going to.

      Just “OK” ?

      Every KISS concert I’ve been to has been great!
      KISS have the art of the perfect hard rock concert down cold!

      Anyways … I know that KISS and the Crue were co-headlining in America – – but it’s only KISS on the bill here.

      Are you gonna go to their show?

        Nah, and yeh I’d say they were OK not great. Definitely worth going to see. I’m not a mega fan maybe that’s why it was only OK, I like them and absolutely appreciate what they’ve done for music but don’t faint at their presence. lol

        > Definitely worth going to see.

        Yes. No other band puts on a show like KISS does!
        It’s like a rock ‘n roll circus (a “Psycho Circus” 😉 ).

        Fire breathing, blood, fireworks, flying guitars, rising drums, etc. etc.
