The Crazy Nights Tour was a concert tour by Kiss. It began in Jackson, Mississippi, marking the second time that a major recording act had started a tour in that city. (Maze being the first). The night before the Jackson show, bassist Gene Simmons played DJ on local rock and roll station Z106.[citation needed] It was the first time Kiss toured Japan since the Alive II Tour in 1978. The tour marked Eric Carr's first and only trip to Japan. Kiss also co-headlined the Monsters of Rock festival with Iron Maiden. The Canadian band Helix opened for them in Detroit as Nugent had played his annual "New Years Eve Whiplash Bash" headlining at Cobo. The group Anthrax opened for Kiss at the Thomas & Mack show in Las Vegas and at the Pacific Amphitheatre show in Costa Mesa.
