KISS IN PRINCE GEORGE TONIGHT

Christine HINZMANN-SKOREPA

Tongues are wagging, heads are banging and the boys are trying on their platform boots in anticipation of the KISS concert June 29 at CN Centre.

Kyle Sampson is a mega-fan who will be going on a KISS concert mini tour of his own as the band makes stops in Kamloops, Abbotsford, Prince George and Dawson Creek.

Sampson was the guy that set up a Bring KISS to Prince George Facebook page with more than 5,000 members in 2009. Through online voting KISS set up a contest to see which town would get a concert. Prince George ranked 11 out of more than 10,000 cities.

Close but no cigar.

That didn't kill Sampson's sizzling enthusiasm for the band ranked No. 10 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock, ninth on The Greatest Metal Bands list by MTV, No. 1 on Hit Paraders's Top 100 Live Bands, 56 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists Of All Time and second on Digital Dream Door's Best Hair Metal Bands.

He just got more determined to get KISS to Prince George.

RAISES THE ROOF IN ABBOTSFORD
ABBOTSFORD NEWS
By Ashley Wray - Abbotsford News

Abbotsford is officially a "rock city."

KISS singer and guitarist Paul Stanley declared the title at Monday night's concert at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre before the band played its famous song, Detroit Rock City.

It was one of the many hits performed by the famous rock group, also consisting of Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.

After a performance by five-piece rock band Bad City, KISS took to the stage dressed head to toe in their famous flamboyant outfits, face paint and platform shoes.

They weren't the only ones in paint.

The KISS Army turned out in full force to watch the rockers relive their classics and share their most recent tunes from the album Sonic Boom.

The audience was on its feet most of the night, dancing in the aisles, strumming on air guitars and fist pumping to the beat.

An encore saw the band return for a few more tunes, ending with Rock and Roll all Nite as confetti fell from the ceiling and fire, smoke and flashing lights engulfed the stage.

Spokane Boy's KISS Wish Comes True
Annie Bishop | KXLY4 Reporter

A Spokane boy's lifetime wish came true Friday night when he met the members of KISS at the Spokane Arena.

Dilan Kohn has cystic fibrosis which requires him to spend weeks and sometimes months at a time in the hospital.

Through it all, the magic of music has inspired Dilan to remain positive.

CANCER GOODBYE!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Early in May 2011, the staff at the Newfoundland and Labrador Correctional Centre for Women (NLCCW) decided to start raising money for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, being held in Clarenville, NL on June 11, 2011. A theme and name quickly emerged for NLCCW’s team, “KISS Cancer Goodbye”, in recognition of the upcoming KISS performance scheduled for the Salmon Festival in Grand Falls, Newfoundland this summer.

Team members decided to dress up as the band “KISS” and when staff began to brainstorm, ideas began to run wild. The Relay was not only a fund-raising event or a way to involve inmates in helping the community; it was so much more. Staff benefited greatly from the event as well. It provided a way to get to know one another better and to build on various skills, mainly team building. It also gave one staff member, who was a Cancer Survivor (three times over), a chance to celebrate this victory with her family, friends, co-workers and the community as a whole.

When the staff of the NLCCW were introduced as "KISS Cancer Good-Bye", the crowd went wild! Many people requested to have their picture taken with "the band". This year’s Relay meant a lot to everyone who participated and helped out in the event. It gave NLCCW’s staff and inmates a way to connect and build stronger, more trusting relationships, thus improving their chances of rehabilitation and improving their lives. It provided a way for staff and inmates to build on team work and other skills. It also gave everyone an outlet for their creativity and served to be highly motivating. But most importantly, the Relay was to help find a cure for this debilitating disease and to remember those who have passed on. It was also a celebration for survivors and to give them the honor that they so deserve.

So let’s not just “KISS cancer Goodbye” today, let’s “KISS cancer Goodbye” each and everyday so that we don’t have to lose another person to cancer. Maybe while KISS is in Newfoundland this summer, they could drop by the NLCCW in Clarenville on their way to Whitbourne for a quick visit...Shannon will know where it is where she is a Newfoundlander and all :)

KISSONLINE.com
KISS FAN PARTY IN SPAIN - JULY 16

Dear KISSonline,

We are Xarly and Mauricio, two KISS fans from Spain. We decided that it was time to pay tribute to our favorite band by organizing a KISS party in our city, Alicante. With the help and collaboration of KISS Army Spain, the event named “ALACANT ROCK CITY” will be held next July 16th, at the Sala Stereo in Alicante, SPAIN.

The Spanish tribute band KISS FEVER BAND will headline the concert with a great set full of KISS Klassics, and the local group Azöte will open the night playing several KISS songs too. KISS Army Spain will be attending and will have their own stand. There will be merchandise for sale, KISS girls, and more things… We really hope many people will show up at the party and rock and roll all nite! We will send you pictures and more stuff after the concert.

Best regards, Xarly and Mauricio
