[From: KISS Kollector Online / www.kisskollector.com]
KISS drummer Eric Singer and former KISS lead guitarist Bruce Kulick, along with former Motley Crue singer John Corabi and Alice Cooper bassist Chuck Garrick, will be touring Europe as ESP (Eric Singer Project) in April and May. While Eric Singer is on a tour break with KISS, and Bruce Kulick is in between tours with his current band Grand Funk Railroad, the two wanted to join forces for a tour of Europe after a handful of shows together as Union (also with John Corabi in the band, but with Jamie Hunting on bass) last month. 

Dates in Denmark (April 28), Holland (April 29) and Germany (April 30) have already been confirmed, while dates for Spain, Sweden, Belgium and other countries are being finalized. ESPís setlist will mainly consist of KISS hits and obscure KISS songs that have never before been played live, along with songs of Motley Crue, Grand Funk Railroad, Alice Cooper and other classic rock bands.
