The bands aim to help families affected by the shootings
12 people were killed and a further 58 were injured at a screening of the latest Batman film in Aurora, Colorado last month and Kiss & Motley Crue have teamed up to donate $100,000 to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund.
In a written statement, Paul Stanley of KISS and Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue said that they hoped their gesture would encourage other people to give money to those affected by the disaster.
Sixx said: "Following the heartbreaking news of the senseless shootings in Colorado we wanted to do something to help the families and victims. We bonded together with our tour partners and friends Kiss to donate money, but we also hope it inspires others to do the same, no matter how big or small."
Stanley added: "The terror these innocent victims of the Aurora massacre must have experienced and the profound loss their families now face is unimaginable. We hope that our small gesture helps inspire others to band together in compassion and financial support for all involved in this unspeakable tragedy."
