IS TIMELESS!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
I just want to express my thanks to KISS for being around for all of these years. I'm 20 years old, have been a fan since I was five, and just saw them for the 5th time last night in the Poconos. Each time I see them they just keep getting better.

I watch them and think to myself how amazing it is that they're still out there and touring and even continuing to make new music for all of us. I can't say how grateful I am for being able to still go and see this band I grew up with; or should I say, this band who my parents grew up with! It's incredible. Paul, you've been my favorite rock star since I was a little girl and I'm still hoping to meet you one day. For now, I'll have to do with this cardboard cutout I bought at a KISS Expo :) I just really love you guys so much.

Thank you Paul, Gene, Eric, and Tommy from the bottom of my heart for all that you continue to do for the KISS Army.

Lisa

ROCKS NEWFOUNDLAND!
OZFM.com
They’re called “The Hottest Band in the World” for good reason, and on the night of July 9th in Grand Falls-Windsor, a massive sea of screaming Newfoundlanders witnessed an incredible, explosive, fire-breathing rock ‘n roll extravaganza unlike anything we’ve seen before…

Iconic rockers KISS played for a packed-solid crowd, with special guests Smash Mouth, Down With Webster, The Orchestra (featuring original members of ELO), and Fefe Dobson. Gene Simmons tweeted “The KISS conquest of Planet Earth… Here in Grand Falls-Windsor… population 15,000… concert attendance 25,000.” It was truly a monumental, unforgettable event.

The weather was sunny and gorgeous all day, right up ’til KISS took the stage… and then, as if on cue, the heavens opened up and the rain came down. And nobody cared, because not even nature can compete with the sheer energy and fire power of KISS. An almost electric “we’re all in this together” vibe coursed through everybody there, as we shook off the rain and partied on the grass while KISS blasted through hits including “Rock & Roll All Nite,” “Strutter,” “Cold Gin,” Shout It Out Loud,” and “Detroit Rock City.” There were explosions. There were huge columns of fire. There was spitting of blood. It was bombastic rock ‘n roll at it’s finest.

Paul Stanley declared onstage, “Tonight, I’m a Newfie!” (He also pronounces “Newfoundland” the correct way.) The whole band showed much love and appreciation for the audience, whose spirits could not be dampened by rain, and we loved KISS right back. As the show ended, Paul promised “We will see you again!”

KISS, at the Salmon Festival Mega Concert in Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland, was proudly presented by NTV, The Newfoundland Herald, and the Rock of the Rock, Newfoundland’s OZFM!

FATHER & SON CELEBRATE TOGETHER
Hey guys!

I have been a huge KISS fan ever since I can remember. I was born in 1974, so I've followed you my whole life. I'm 36 now and my 4 year old son, Maddox, is following in his dad's footsteps. I've promised to take him to the next show here in Nashville, TN. I wanted to share this photo collage with you. The kid you see on the left is me in 1978. The kid on the right is Maddox a few weeks ago. Oh, and the red KISS t-shirt he has on... that was mine at age 4. Like father like Son.

Thanks guys! - Joe & Maddox

MY QUILT
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hi KISS Army,

This quilt was made for me out of a history of KISS tshirts from concerts and club activities by a good friend named Angie. It was a front page article in my home town newspaper - The York News Times. It is a very unique item and I thought I would share it with all the KISS fans in the world.

Sincerely,
Dennis Michalski JR. York, NE

GFW ADVERTISER

In the Photo: Members of iconic rock group Kiss, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer, Paul Stanley and Eric Singer (back) were the headliners at this past weekend’s Salmon Festival in Grand Falls-Windsor. More than 20,000 fans endured a driving rain that started just prior to the band’s two-hour show.

Rock icons Kiss, including founding members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, did not disappoint throngs of fans that converged on Grand Falls-Windsor for this year’s Salmon Festival concert Saturday night.

After opening acts Fefe Dobson, The Orchestra, Down With Webster and Smashmouth played under sunny skies, clouds moved in as if on cue, but the crowd’s enthusiasm shone through.

The headliners, known for their outlandish makeup and costumes and spectacular pyrotechnics, performed many of their hits, including “Shout It Out Loud,” “Detroit Rock City,” and “Beth”.

Grand Falls-Windsor Mayor Al Hawkins said the event was huge for the town.

“Grand Falls-Windsor is a concert centre,” he said. “We are pretty happy. When you look at the amount of money people will leave in the town, we are happy.”
