BROWARD PALM BEACH NEW TIMES
By Travis Newbill

Kiss us, we're Irish. St. Patrick's Day's creepy little green guy will be overshadowed by larger, possibly more satanic, man-monsters this year when Kiss brings its "Hottest Show on Earth Tour" to the Seminole Hard Rock on March 17 -- one of only two scheduled North American appearances for 2011 so far. This comes as great news for those of us who feel that the old beer-jig-puke routine is getting old and that the reign of the leprechaun has gone on for long enough.

Kiss is currently working on a new album, which means we may be treated to a few new songs. Of course, we're thinking that the songs will not be the big news at this show, which is obviously an attempt by Kiss to overthrow the leprechaun. Here are a few predictions for the upcoming green-versus-black battle of St. Patrick.

An orchestra in northeastern Brazil mixes their music with rock music from KISS. Orquestra Rockfonica performs classic rock selections with wind instruments and percussion, testing the boundaries of music and rhythm, all while wearing KISS makeup! They're scheduled to perform at Brazil's annual Carnaval this year.

FAN'S IKONS TRIBAL TATTOO
KOL LETTERS
Hey KISS, Here's a photo of my Ikons/Tribal tattoo. The tattoo was inked by Ben Dixon of Lonewolf Tattoo in Nashville, TN. He's a huge KISS fan also and totally captured the image that was in mind of how I wanted this tattoo to look like. I'm sure you've heard it all before, but I want to express my gratitude to all of you for continually being an inspiration to never give up on your dreams. Thank You!!! and NEVER STOP ROCKIN'!!!!

Hello KISS ARMY!

My trip to the US started off with a quick visit to Myrtle Beach and that was no accident as I went there to visit the famous KISS Coffee House. A wonderful place with great staff!

Anyhow, my first M&G was in Virginia Beach;

Virginia Beach

I had done two M&G’s (Meet & Greet's) before so I felt fairly prepared for tonight, but I was still bubbling with nervous excitement like a child when I collected my ticket from the Will Call window. I had traveled from Ireland specially to see the guy’s in Virginia Beach, Charlotte and Raleigh. It was not my first time to cross the Atlantic to see them but this trip to the US was going to be extra special as it was going to be a KISS weekend for me with three M&G’s!

The M&G is very well organized and worked like clock work for all. First you meet Dean the M&G coordinator and photographer. He gives everyone an outline of how the M&G will go. Where to go, at what time etc. Then its time to line up by the ticket office, hand over a signed special e-mail (sent to all M&G attendees basically agreeing to common sense terms and conditions for the M&G), you receive your laminate, and wrist band and a set of picks (four).

FAN SUPPORTS SPECIAL OLYMPICS BENEFIT
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Greetings all!

This afternoon, I participated in the 2011 Polar Plunge, in Annapolis, MD. The event was a fundraiser to benefit the Special Olympics of Southern Maryland. Originally started 15 years ago, it began with a crowd of about 350 people. Now the success has drawn the masses of over 10,000! It was a lot of fun and pretty much just what you could imagine taking a dip in freezing waters would be like! The air temperature was about 35, I don't even want to imagine what the water temps were!

I dressed in costume as many participants do. Being the KISS fanatic that I am, had to represent the KISS Army in the classiest of style! I was Gene Simmons, stepping right off the cover of the "Dressed to Kill" album! I ended up taking pictures with some folks there. Even the Maryland state lottery team asked me to join them!

As for the plunge itself, it probably only lasted for about 15 seconds! I walked in waist deep, turned around, plugged my nose and sat down! The water pulled my wig off and I was up and out with a quickness! Even after growing up in Michigan and New York, I found a new definition of cold!

Thanks again for those who supported this effort!

Enjoy the pic!
