KISSONLINE LETTERS

Saturday, I saw Lenny Kravitz rocking out to KISS at Madison Square Garden! Then last night, I went to see Lenny's show at the Filmore and he rocked.

During the concert, he talked quite a bit about KISS! He even said hello from the stage to Tommy Thayer, who was in the crowd with his wife. Eric Singer was there with his girlfriend too.

On stage, Lenny said he was the only black kid in high school who had KISS t-shirts and posters all over his room. Then he played some of "I Was Made For Lovin' You" and said they need to let KISS into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

IS DOIN' IT FOR THE KIDS
TIME OUT NEW YORK

During Nassau Coliseum's Friday night show, you could see the preponderance of adorable eight-year-olds in face paint. This was Kiss as family entertainment. "Look at all the Kiss children!" enthused singer Paul Stanley, cameras swiveling on the crowd. There was no swearing. And if Daddy hoisted you up on his shoulders to observe Paul sashaying on a platform singing "Love Gun" - well, that was what rock stars did, honey.

Touring behind its new LP, Sonic Boom, Kiss also reminded anyone who needed it of the resiliency of its act. Even with two original members replaced (Tommy Thayer on guitar and Eric Singer on drums) the band worked through a two-and-half-hour set with exuberance and panache.

But riffage is beside the point. You go to a Kiss show for the stunts too, like Gene Simmons spitting blood and fire. The crowd roared its approval. The set list was 1970s-heavy, with numbers like "Parasite" supplanted with video backdrops of swarming amoebas.

ERROLS WEEKLY MUSIC BLOG
Is there a more dedicated fan base than the Kiss Army? The elder statesmen and stateswomen brought along a whole bunch of new recruits to witness the spectacle of what could be the best visual stage show ever, as well as a constant supply of down-home Rock and Roll cooking for the New York audience.

I am positive that the new recruits are just as enthralled with KISS after witnessing them deliver a knock-out punch on the world's greatest stage, and who knows -- they may just get the chance to introduce their kids to a KISS concert for their "KISS ALIVE 50" tour.

I don't know if it is the addition of Tommy Thayer on guitar or Eric Singer on drums, but Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons appear revitalized. They seem to be breathing fresh air again, and you would have thought that it could have been 1979 instead of 2009 because the energy they brought to the table last night makes me wonder if the band is drinking out of some kind of fountain of youth.

' HISTORIC MSG SHOW
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS - Madison Square Garden - 10/10/2009

When you are the witness to something historic, it is an honor to have the chance to capture the event on "film". When KISS rolled into New York's Madison Square garden on 10-10-09, it felt historic. The hometown heroes returning to the stage in Manhattan's "World's most famous arena" on their Alive 35/Sonic Boom Tour. I was there to witness this rock n roll party-up close and personal! This is some of my proudest work to date! Rock n roll all nite and party everyday people!

NEW YORK EXAMINER
By Elliot Levin

The Kiss Army was out in full force in Long Island last night, just weeks after Kiss was nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The band's long and storied career is clearly far from over, as they fill arenas around the country on their first national tour in years.

Fans of all ages packed all levels of Nassau Coliseum, with both parents and their children sporting the world famous Kiss make up. Starchilds, Spacemen, Catmen, and Space Demons of all ages walked the corridors and waited in line.

Kiss is touring behind their first new album in a decade, but the band has never really left the public eye. Gene Simmons' TV show, and merchandising deals almost beyond imagination have kept the Kiss brand a relevant, even household name for years, and new album Sonic Boom has received a warm welcome.
