David Lee Roth Joining KISS at JQH in February

The final stop for Kiss at JQH Arena is growing in intensity with the announcement that former Van Halen lead vocalist David Lee Roth will be opening the show February 18.

Roth is replacing painter David Garabaldi who had been opening the previous Kiss End of the Road tour dates.

The dates for Kiss’ February and March tour take place between Roth’s scheduled “residencies” at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

The tour also marks the first time Roth has performed with a band using two guitarists.

“We do not sound like Van Halen live,” Roth stated in a press release. “You have not heard this. Van Halen live is lead guitar, bass, drums, sing. Here, we bring it the way a record brings it. To do that requires two or three guitars. We have five people hollerin’. It’s big rock sound. It’s not ‘Just a Gigolo.’ It’s not brass band. That was a quickie vacation.”

Tickets are available through Missouri State Tix.
