KISS brings the party back to Erie Tonight!

By Dave Richards / www.goerie.com/

Everyone remembers their very first Kiss, whether it was fist-pumping anthem “Rock and Roll All Nite,” their ecstatic ode to “Detroit Rock City” or another classic-rock staple. But how close are we to the last KISS?

Gene Simmons hinted the end is in sight, when asked if KISSwill rock on like blues greats do, not to mention Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones.

“No, no, no,” said Simmons, 66. “We are the hardest-working band in show business, period. I run around on stage on seven-inch platform shoes, spit fire, wear 50 pounds of armor. We love Jagger and McCartney, but those gentlemen couldn't do what I do. Physically, you'd pass out.

 “No, no, we can't do this into our 70s, nor would we want to. We have to be convincing at doing what we're doing. But I'd like to think in the future there's going to be four well-deserving young men who are willing to put in the time and the effort to wear the crown.”
 

So KISS might sanction younger players to carry the torch and wear the masks?

“Why not? Simmons said. “Why should the party end just because one or two guys leave?”

Simmons and Paul Stanley, of course, have kept the Kiss party alive since the departures of Ace Frehley and Peter Criss. All four original members did reunite for a massively successful 1996 tour, but Simmons said that's not likely to happen again.

KISS dazzles Covelli with fireballs, explosions

YOUNGSTOWN

It was the storm before the calm.

KISS kicked off back-to-back major concerts at Covelli Centre Friday night with a show that was as dazzling as billed. Fireballs shot from the stage, explosions shook the hall, and a giant screen was lit up like the Vegas strip.

Things should be more subdued tonight at the arena when pop legend Lionel Richie performs. Tonight’s show is sold out, and KISS’ concert was just a few seats shy.

When it comes to KISS, it’s never boring. The Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame band delivers a concert like a blockbuster superhero film. It’s about holding nothing back.

A few fans got in on the act, wearing the recognizable face paint of their favorite band member.

The all-ages crowd might have skewed toward the 40s to 60s set, but there were a lot of parents and kids, too — a testament to KISS’ timeless act, and its ability to unite generations.

KISS dazzles at Youngstown's Covelli Centre

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers deliver rock 'n' roll spectacle

By BJ Lisko / www.cantonrep.com

KISS frontman Paul Stanley sauntered his way to the microphone with the trademark Starchild strut. The 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees were approaching the end of their near capacity concert Friday night at Youngstown’s Covelli Centre.

“What you hear is all four of us,” Stanley said. “There are no tracks here, ’cause we’re a rock ’n’ roll band.”

Damn straight.

The KISS Army attended in full force to see the iconic theatrical group blow off multiple pyrotechnics, fireballs and confetti as well as breathe fire, spit blood and fly up and through the arena in what is still arguably the best live rock show going. Underneath the wildly entertaining spectacle, however, was as Stanley said: A rock ’n’ roll band, and a very good one at that.
