Hello KISS!

The film and the pictures you're about to see are the result of a magical meeting taking it's birth in the KISS passion ... 2 fans... 2 friends ... A gift ...

They both train children's soccer team of 11/12 years old. Theirs sons Jimmy and Jean-Christophe play in these teams and are KISS fans too. Jerome and Titi: had their first contact 1 year ago and their first meeting took place 4 days earlier at the fantastic KISS show in Geneva.

For the love of KISS,
Titi

Lights, Pyro's, moving stage sets, explosions, blood spitting, fire breathing, flying rock stars, Tommy Thayer, Eric Singer, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and thirty seven years of classics from Americas greatest rock n roll band. KISS have finally arrived in Dublin to play their very first Irish show and give the emerald Isle branch of the KISS army a night they'll never forget.

Describing the excitement and anticipation before a KISS show is almost as difficult as describing the magic of the performance itself. Most Irish KISS fans have only ever seen the band in pictures and on film, but those mediums only catch a glimpse of the power, the energy and show stopping, jaw dropping charisma and mesmerizing presence the band hold on stage. In reality, KISS holds a power over their fans almost unlike any other. Fictionally, they present themselves as larger than life superheroes, capable of catapulting you into another dimension of pleasure and rock n roll and in reality, they do just that.

VIENNA MEET & GREET
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hello KISS Army,

Here are a few photos from the Vienna KISS meet & greet. What a great and exciting event! To meet KISS is more than a special thing for me! I was able to give Gene some local newspapers with stories about KISS and I think he liked them! I was also happy to give the whole band original Swiss chocolate. I hope they enjoyed it :-)

All in all, it was an excellent experience and I am really happy I met KISS again! I can't wait to see the personal group shots to download.

In the bottom photo is my best friend Andrea Mertinger from Austria who came with me to the meet & greet.

Best,
Hans-Ulrich Zingg

BUDAPEST TIMES
Written by Dan Nolan

American glam metal legends KISS (looking the same as ever after all these years; how do they do it?) will smear on the slap and squeeze into the latex once more to perform at the Papp Laszlo Sportarena on Friday night.

Perform is the operative word too, as the group came to prominence in the mid-1970s on the back of their extravagantly theatrical live shows that feature silver stack-heeled boots, smoking Flying-Vs and the occasional assisted flight over the audience. These days only the flamboyant co-frontmen, bassist Gene Simmons and rhythm guitarist Paul Stanley, remain from the quartet who formed Kiss in New York in 1973 and have gone on to sell over 100 million albums.

Touring Europe with their latest, 19th lp Sonic Boom to promote, The Demon (Simmons) and Starchild (Stanley), and relative newbies Spaceman (guitarist Tommy Thayer) and Catman (drummer Eric Singer), have reportedly been performing "Crazy Crazy Nights", "I Was Made for Lovin' You", and "God Gave Rock 'n' Roll To You II" - which they adopted from Brit band Argent and made their own for Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey in 1991 - alongside "Modern Day Delilah", "Say Yeah" and "I'm An Animal" from the new album.

Legendary Rock Band KISS and Monster Mini Golf, a leader in cutting-edge indoor glow-in-the-dark themed entertainment centers, have joined forces to bring you the first ever KISS-themed Monster Mini Golf entertainment center on the sinfully-fun Las Vegas strip.

A mere six years ago, Christina and Patrick Vitagliano, a seemingly normal couple, sat at their kitchen table and came up with one of the most "frightening" entertainment ideas ever perpetrated on the American people - Monster Mini Golf. Christina wanted the concept to have three important factors: fun for all ages, inexpensive yet profitable and, above all, it had to be cool. So they took the 50-year-old proven concept of miniature golf, moved it indoors and added black lights, sound, special effects, a live DJ, and monsters - from frightfully animated to humorously absurd. Then they did what mini-golf needed - brought it to the 21st century and gave it a good dose of cool.

Now after 6 years and over 25 locations nationwide (and growing), the founders of Monster Mini Golf have decided it is time to kick up their edgy cool concept yet another notch. Along with monsters, black lights, special effects and mini-golf -- it's time to ROCK! When it's time to rock - it's time to call KISS!
