|Kiss concert chronology|
The Kiss My Ass Tour was a concert tour by Kiss. In late August, and early September 1994 Kiss toured South America as headliners on the touring Monsters of Rock festival. Following this, the band toured Japan in January 1995 on their own, and in February 1995 they toured Australia for the first time since 1980. The Australian tour was named "The Kiss My Ass Downunder Tour". The stage set used through most of the shows in South America and Australia was similar to the Hot in the Shade Tour stage. It had Leon the Sphinx, the steps around the drum riser, the laser lightshow and parts of the regular lightshow. The band appeared in the mouth of the sphinx after the curtain concealing the stage dropped, as in the Hot in the Shade Tour, but the sphinx didn't sing "God of Thunder" on these short tours, nor did it shoot rockets from its eyes. This was the last tour of the non-makeup era.
Supporting acts for this tour were Angra, Black Sabbath, Dr. Sin, Fleetwood Mac, Gatos Sucios, Hermética, I Mother Earth, Lita Ford, Logos, Mother Station, Open Skyz, The Pat Travers Band, The Poor, Raimundos, Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies, Slayer, Snake Dance, Stick, Suicidal Tendencies, Tumulto, Victimas del Dr. Cerebro and Viper.
