KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Here is our KISS wedding story . . .

My wife Tina and I have known each other since May, 2005. We took a journey to Italy with the German-Italian Culture Club where my Uncle is President. There (Italy) we did some sightseeing, and took some bus trips, etc. As we parted ways, we promised to keep in contact, but as you guessed, it never happened . . . until November. Tina then contacted my Aunt, she contacted my Mom, and then contacted me. Needless to say, I was very happy :-) Tina and I then went out on a date to the cinema, to see Harry Potter. One thing led to another, and we’ve been in a relationship since that day.

I was a KISS Fan since 1987 (Crazy Nights) but the first chance I had to see them was the Reunion Tour in `96/`97 where I went to Zurich/Switzerland twice and Stuttgart/Germany. Then came the Psycho Circus Tour, and I saw them again in Germany.

There was then a long absence in Europe until 2008 - ALIVE 35 Tour. Tina and I booked a “Meet & Greet” in Stuttgart/Germany and we’re very excited to see Gene, Paul, Eric and Tommy in person!!! And then it happened, the day came, and we were ready for the boys. Sad to say that Tina became ill and had to stay in a wheelchair for a small period of time, but guess what happened at the Meet & Greet?

KISS kneeled before my wife, and signed the wheelchair!!! What a great thing to see :-)

So the connection between me, my wife, and KISS is clear to see I guess.

SPANISH PARTY ROCKED!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear Kissonline,

We are sending you this collage that we have made with some of the pictures from the event that we had on Saturday, July 16th, “ALACANT ROCK CITY”. It was a big success! Around 200 people came to our party.

We started off the day having lunch with the fans. More than 30 members of KISS ARMY SPAIN were present at the lunch where everybody had a great time. Many of them took advantage to rest and others did some tourism in Alicante.

The venue opened its doors at 10 p.m. with KISS videos on the big screen while the fans were coming in. Then the local band AZÖTE opened the night with Psycho Circus, and apart from their own songs, they also played Parasite, Heaven’s On Fire and Rock And Roll Hell (crowd went nuts). Headliners and real stars were KISS FEVER BAND, a great cover band from Madrid. They performed a long setlist full of KISS classics and hits. Audience was crazy, singing, shouting and clapping all the time.

The end of the show with Rock And Roll All Nite was mind blowing. Mauricio, Javier Rueda, Laia, AZÖTE singer and I went onstage to give away the A1 poster signed by all the 2 band members. We all ended up singing the song along with the band. We really look forward to having another party like this next year.

Yours sincerely, Xarly & Mauricio

DRESSED TO AT JIM'S WEDDING
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Jim’s (pictured center) wedding party wanted to unwind a bit before the big day. So, knowing that we are all KISS fans, we decided to take a little piece of the band along with us as Jim and Nikki tied the knot on July 16th, 2011. We all put on our favorite KISS t-shirts under our tuxedoes and made sure we had the photographic evidence to show our devotion! I don’t think the tux company had this in mind when they designed the suits!

I, Bob “Gene”, served as Master of Ceremonies at the reception wearing my Gene shirt. It was a great day and Jim and Nikki couldn’t have been happier. The entire wedding party, Bob “The Demon”, Derek “Destroyer”, Owen “Hot in the Shade, and Brad “Kiss Army” wish them nothing but happiness for many, many years to come!

COMICS AD AT COMICON
KISSONLINE.com
Here is a teaser ad both IDW Pub and Archie Comics Group used at
this year's COMICON -- the huge comic book convention held in San
Diego, Calif on July 22-25.

The response, needless to say, was over the top...lines formed at
their booths immediately, to hear the news....that BOTH IDW Pub and
Archie Comics would be doing KISS Comics.

At the same time.
Never before done.
Another KISS first.

MUSIC TO YOUR EARS: ROCK & ROLL THEMED CRUISES
CRUISECRITIC.COM EXCERPT
by Shayne Rodriguez Thompson

Former hair-band front man and reality TV star Bret "Poison" Michaels' cruise may have been canceled earlier this week, but there's no need to fret. Rock-music theme cruises are some of the hottest parties at sea, and during the upcoming fall/winter cruise season, there's no shortage of opportunities to sail with your favorite performers.

Whether you prefer old-school pop-rock tunes from the Beatles and Elvis or can't get enough of hard-rocking acts like Hinder and Buckcherry, there's likely a sailing suited to your musical inclinations. And, with so many cruises to choose from, we thought we'd do a bit of the legwork for you.

The best part? While many music-themed voyages sell out quickly, these are still available -- at least as of press time. Just remember that these sorts of cruises tend to sell out quickly, so if you're really determined to sail with or celebrate your favorite performers, you'll want to book ASAP.

The Kiss Kruise. Join everyone's favorite larger-than-life glam-rock band on a four-night Bahamas cruise aboard Carnival Destiny. This cruise sails in October, so in honor of Halloween (and the band's penchant for playing dress-up), the exclusive Kiss-themed onboard activities will include a holiday bash and several costume contests. Of course there will be a number of live performances, as well.

DUTCH TRIBUTE BAND - ON THE ROCKS
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS,

I’m so proud to share a video we just did in tribute to you, the hottest band in the world!

Once a month, 4 friends in Holland get together to try and recreate what you guys do on tour every night: the perfect rock show. Supported by a crew of loyal Kiss army members, we pay a lot of attention to detail: recently building the Kiss stairs, pyrotechnics, making sure we have the best looking outfits, and of course the music, which is the soundtrack to our lives.

It’s an honor to step into your boots once a month…

See you on the cruise!

Kiss on the Rocks
