The Rising Sun Tour was a series of shows by Kiss. It was the band's first trip to Japan since the 2004 Rock the Nation Tour. Before touring in Japan, Kiss performed at Las Vegas' VH1 Rock Honors. After the series of Japan shows, Kiss played two casino shows in California. For the non-festival dates of the tour, Kiss surprised fans by performing "Love 'Em and Leave 'Em" live for the first time, and "Kissin' Time" live for the first time since 1974.
