Very few KISS Meet & Greet packages remain
Australian KISS fans have snapped up almost all of the $1250 packages to meet the band on their October tour.
KISS sell 60 of the VIP meet and greet packages at each show, most of which were available through their fan club and sold out within minutes.
A handful of the packages still left for each show but expected to sell out immediately when they go on sale on Thursday.
The $1250 package provides access to an intimate acoustic set, performed without make-up, in front of just 60 fans. It also comes with one platinum ticket to the concert, early entry to the venue, a photograph with the band in full make-up, autograph and VIP merchandise including T-shirt, poster and guitar picks.
KISS play Perth Arena October 3, Adelaide Entertainment Centre October 6, Rod Laver Arena October 8, Allphones Arena October 10, Newcastle Entertainment Centre October 12 and Brisbane Entertainment Centre October 13.
General public tickets on sale at 2pm on Thursday, March 26 from Ticketek. http://www.ticketek.com/

They raised money all night so cancer patients can party every day.
Peter Criss, a founding member of Kiss, and other celebs came to town to fight cancer in the Beauty Foundation for Cancer Care's 9th annual Beauty Ball, held Saturday, March 14 at the Robert J. Collins Arena on the campus of Brookdale Community College in Lincroft.
Criss, a male breast cancer survivor, presented the Peter Criss Man of Courage Award to Connor Phelps, a 21-year-old Arizona college student who is currently battling Leukemia.
"I try to get the awareness to men that we get it," Criss said. "Men don't know. What annoys me is that it's called breast cancer. Bingo, right off the bat, it's breast cancer. Why isn't it called pec cancer?"
Criss was diagnosed in 2007. He's since become an advocate to raise awareness about the disease.
"Every year I meet 20 18-year-old boys (who have breast cancer) and they don't know what to do," said Criss, who lives in Wall. "They're embarrassed. It's a chick's disease. Only girls get it."
"My battle is I just want guys to know they can get it, and if they can detect it immediately (they can be cured,)'' Criss said. Early detection "saved my life and I've now become very involved. These lovely girls (of the Beauty Foundation) invite me every year to give out the Peter Criss Man of Courage Award and it's a legacy. I started Kiss, but this is really cool; this is important."

Back in 1998, I took my seven year old son Eric to see KISS for the very first time in Chicago, Illinois. Then in 2014, Eric returns the favor and takes his old man to a KISS Meet and Greet in St. Louis, Missouri!
We had told Gene about our father and son KISS bond earlier during the day. When it came time for the photo session with the group, Eric went first and Gene told him to stay and motioned for me to come up. Gene told the rest of the band "This is a father and his son. He brought his son to see us for the first time and now the son is bringing the father. They must be in the picture together".
It was a great KISS family day. I highly suggest others do the KISS Meet & Greets as a family. It is a truly remarkable and memorable experience.
Thanks to Agus Kiss for sharing this KISS street poster with us!
