Jon Stickler of StereoBoard,com reports:

Are Live Nation on the verge of announcing KISS for a Hard Rock Calling headline performance at London's Olympic Park this summer?

With the annual Wireless Festival and Hard Rock Calling - both of which were previously staged at London's Hyde Park - already confirmed for the brand new venue, glam-rock legends KISS are rumoured to be this year's headliners for the Hard Rock Calling event.

Live Nation have already confirmed they plan to announce "some major concerts with world-renowned artists" over the next few weeks, could KISS be one of the first big acts to be announced?

UK fans have been anticipating a new tour announcement from KISS for a while. The band performed an intimate fundraiser gig for the Help for Heroes charity in London last summer, following the cancellation of Sonisphere Festival, a festival they were due to headline. Ever since, the band have set tongues wagging about a return to the UK and the possibility of a full UK tour to support their most recent album, Monster.
