The tour, described as "Elvis on steroids" by Paul Stanley, was announced on March 20[1] and started on July 20, 2012 in Bristow, Virginia.[2] At first, 40 dates were announced while the August 5 concert at AT&T Center and the August 1 concert at KFC Yum! Center were subsequently added. "The Tour" was listed by the Rolling Stone as one of "The Ten Hottest Summer Package Tours of 2012".[3] The Treatment was the opening act for all shows.
