House band touring with Paul Stanley

The Rock Star house band was kicked off the show’s tour, but they’re now touring with another rock star: Kiss’ Paul Stanley.

Stanley tells Launch Radio Networks that “the show was mildly entertaining, but the band was incredible! From the first time I saw it, I was just blown away by how good they were, and said, ‘When I go out on tour, those’ll definitely be the guys who I want to go with.’ They’re a great bunch, and we sound pretty damn good.”

Yesterday, the band’s performance with Stanley at the House of Blues in Chicago was taped for a DVD. The tour continues today in Minneapolis, and continues on to five other cities through the middle of this month.
