On this day in KISSTORY - February 20, 1976 - KISS planted their platform boots into wet cement outside Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese Theatre!
Legendary rock band KISS is supporting Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital by donating an incredible, money-can’t-buy prize to help raise valuable funds for the hospital’s Paediatric Intensive Care Unit.
Following the tragic event at the Manchester Arena last year, the Children’s Hospital has received an out-pouring of support from across the North West and beyond with individuals, schools and businesses wanting to help in any way possible to support the patients and staff at the hospital. This tremendous support has now stretched across the Atlantic with rock stars KISS getting in touch to pledge their support after the awful attack.
The band has donated a phenomenal prize of three of their personal guitars signed by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and Tommy Thayer respectively, plus a signed personal snare drum with signed drum sticks from Eric Singer. The guitar donated by Paul Stanley is his signature Ibanez PS120 guitar which he was intending to play at their Manchester Arena gig on Tuesday 30th May. The band sadly had to cancel the gig following the attack at the Manchester Arena. The guitar has never been played and will be up for auction along with VIP tickets to any sold out KISS show in the world, plus a cabin on the sold out 8th KISS Kruise and two tickets for one of their sold out shows on the Kruise with a meet and greet with the band.
Paul Stanley said: “We were devastated by the heinous attack in Manchester Arena and had to do something to support the city. Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital's incredible work with children was never more evident than after this horrific event. We are humbled to be able to give something to support them in their ongoing efforts. Knowing that the money raised will go towards purchasing life-support ventilators, our prayers and wishes will continue to help both those affected directly by the attack, and beyond. This night will give everyone an opportunity to do their part in raising as much money as possible for an incredibly worthy cause.”
FANTASM Media Group's The Official KISS Poster Book is a full-color magazine featuring new, exclusive and unseen photos from KISS's past and present, brand new interviews and features as well as eight giant foldout posters, perfect for framing and hanging on whatever wall you want.
This is a limited edition, collector's book published in cooperation with KISS, an aesthetic throwback to the glory days of the poster magazines that flew off shelves in the 1970s and '80s but with a contemporary perspective and—like all FANTASM Media Group products—printed on the highest quality paper and produced by the fans for the fans.
