TO PLAY HALIFAX??
TIMES & TRANSCRIPT
WILL HALIFAX GET KISS-ED?

Rumours that legendary rock group KISS will perform an outdoor show in Halifax got much louder yesterday as a Halifax promoter began circulating teaser advertisements for the show.

Advertisements scheduled to appear in today's Times & Transcript were telling readers to check a website for more information, but that website was not up and running yesterday afternoon.

The ads simply say 'get ready' and include the well-known makeup faces of Kiss members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. Harold MacKay, a Halifax promoter associated with Power Promotional Concepts in Dartmouth, was not available for comment yesterday.

The ads seem to lend more credence to the rumour that KISS will appear in Halifax.

KISS co-founder and bassist Gene Simmons was quoted recently by news media saying a short summer tour was planned for the rock icons next summer, including a date in Halifax.

'I know Halifax is one,' Simmons said.

So far, officials in Halifax have been quiet about the possibility. A check of the official KISS website shows no concert dates for 2009.

One might say KISS owes the East Coast some dates.

The band played here in 1976 on April 18 (Moncton) and April 19 (Halifax), and in 1977 on July 8 (Halifax) and July 9 (Moncton).

The band was due to return for shows Oct. 21-23 in 1990 in Sydney, Halifax and Moncton, but cancelled when guitarist Paul Stanley injured himself on tour.

KOL FAN LETTER

Hi Guys,

I am 24 years old and have been a die hard KISS fan for about four years. You guys are my entire world and I saw you live for the first time in Sydney in March 2008. It was the greatest night of my life and I can't wait to see you down under again!

My family know how much I love KISS. My Dad is an artist and I wanted to show you the amazing painting he did for me as a housewarming present! I know exactly where I'm going to put it - right inside the front door so it's the first thing people will see when they walk in!!!

Amy, Australia.

GENE ON NEW RECORD & TOUR
CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE
BUSY 2009 FOR KISS

Gene Simmons appears to have confirmed the news that Paul Stanley broke exclusively to us on the Clog - there is going to be a new KISS record in 2009.

In a chat with Jane Stevenson of Canada s Sun Media, Gene suggests that the band will record the album and release it next summer with Paul Stanley producing. There will also be a handful of show to go with this release.

'We ll do a handful of shows just to keep in the game (next) summer, maybe 10 (dates), some Canadian shows. I know Halifax is one, but before you get out there and start the baseball season, they hold exhibition games, that s what we re doing. ‘Cause once we go out, it s going to be for a year and a half.'

THANKS KISS ARMY

Thank you from The Director of the McKinley Center

Rhonda the director of the McKinley Center wanted you guys to know that members of the KISS Army have been mailing in donation for the children because they saw Eric helping the children on KISSonline!

I have been going every Saturday to visit the 12 & 13 year old boys. They all have on their KISS shirts when I arrive. One child by the name of Keith, who has no family at all, wears his shirt all weekend.

For each cottage they have 13 children. The cottage only gets $600.00 per month for food, drinks, cloths, shoes, entertainment, ext.... for all 13 kids. That is around $46 a month per child. So those donations really helped!!

And most of all, it really effected the children because they know that other people care and not just anyone, but the drummer from KISS & the KISS ARMY!

This has really made them feel good!

Best, Rhonda Rudolph
