The Rock The Nation World Tour was a concert tour by the hard rock group Kiss. Poison was the opening band. The tour marked the return of Eric Singer on the drums, who once again replaced Peter Criss, whose contract was not renewed by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. While attendance was not what the previous tour had been, it still averaged 8,900 on the American leg of the tour while grossing $20 million. Kiss would not tour in 2005 due to Paul Stanley's hip replacement.


During this tour, the setlist was not as 1970's exclusive as it had been on their last few tours, as Kiss played songs that spanned their entire career. This also included performing a few selections from their non-makeup era, songs the band have generally shied away from playing since returning to wearing their make-up in 1996. After this tour, however, most of those songs would again be shelved and to date, with the exception of "God Gave Rock 'N' Roll To You II" and "Lick it Up", they have not reappeared. The band released a two-disc DVD of this tour.
