Guitar rock duo The Kills will make a stop at the Majestic Theater on Tuesday as part of a very short string of 3 dates surrounding a pair of high-profile gigs opening for Queens of The Stone Age in New York and Boston. The band tacked on dates in Chicago and Toronto in addition to Detroit.
The band, which splits its time between Nashville and London, have a notable Michigan connection: they've recorded their past three records in Benton Harbor's Club Recording Company, and plan to finish recording their forthcoming album there as well. “It feels like home,” singer Alison Mosshart told the Detroit News, and also said she likes killing time at Benton Harbor's Meijer at night between recording sessions.
In 2014 Mosshart will also record with her band The Dead Weather, which features Jack White and Queens of the Stone Age's Dean Fertita, both of Michigan.
