NIGHTCLUB CITY AND ICONIC ROCK BAND KISS BRING FANS A FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND LIVE CONCERT

(SAN FRANCISCO, CA) Sept. 22, 2010 - In a music event that will mark the first time a band of historic magnitude has streamed a free concert to millions through a social game, KISS will broadcast their final North American date of their hugely-successful 2010
Hottest Show on Earth concert tour live in Booyah's Nightclub
City, a wildly-popular, music-centric social game and marketing platform for musicians on Facebook.

The live concert will bring new and traditional media together by simultaneously airing on sites KROQ.com in Los Angeles and CBS Radio rock station websites nationwide via Ustream on Saturday, September 25, where KISS is headlining the Epicenter Twenty Ten Festival in Fontana, California.

Fans of KISS will be able to watch the iconic band play for FREE by simply logging on to the Nightclub City application in Facebook or by going to the KISS Ustream site. Those who view the concert in Nightclub City will be given exclusive KISS branded virtual goods to use in the game. In addition, Nightclub City players will have access to a dedicated KISS playlist in the game, featuring the top KISS songs of all-time.

Nightclub City is a digital game based around real-world music, and the landmark KISS event represents Booyah's platform as a real-world gaming leader blending interactive entertainment with social apps while blurring the lines between the real and digital worlds.

"We're celebrating the end of a monster tour by giving everyone a chance to relive some of what they heard and saw at the show. Unfortunately, we will not be responsible for computers melting," said KISS co-founder Paul Stanley.

"We have always believed in pushing the boundaries...in giving the fans bang for the buck...in going where no band has gone before," added KISS co-founder Gene Simmons. "This one's gonna rock big time!"

The dynamic world of Nightclub City is powered by Booyah's vision of fusing elements from the real and digital worlds to create new forms of interactive entertainment. Since opening its club doors in April 2010, more than 8.6 million active players have joined the party per month, and experienced new music within the social game setting and created special experiences that go beyond the realm of the digital world.

Those who watch the KISS concert through Nightclub City will be rewarded with special KISS- branded virtual goods. The broadcast starts with the pre-show at 8:30pm, KISS plays at 9:30pm on Saturday, September 25 at http://apps.facebook.com/nightclubcity.

IN AFGHANISTAN
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
I have great news that may be of interest to you. As a morale boosting event our compound here in Kabul, Afghanistan held a "Qalaa Has Talent" completion. Performing as Combat KISS the Four Horsemen got decked out as KISS with the exception of using camo stick for the color. We had our fake guitars, fly swatter drum sticks and WON THE COMPETITION. While not an iota talented we made up for it with a tremendous act. I'm attaching 2 pictures, one of the Four Horsemen as Combat KISS and the other for your enjoyment, a pair of panties that came from the audience and is draped over CW2 Mathews' plywood guitar which he proceeded to smash at the end of our performance. Of course I was made up as Gene!

Sincerely,

Michael K. Alexander, Contracting Officer

Afghanistan Engineer District North (Kabul)

Dr Pepper partnership brings together iconic American band, retail giant

KISS is currently traveling North America on The Hottest Show on Earth tour. Four collectible Super Big Gulps courtesy of Dr Pepper, each bearing the likeness of one of the KISS band members - Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer are available in participating U.S. 7-Eleven stores this September through the band's partnership with Dr Pepper.

"KISS has a huge following, and the legendary rockers' appeal cuts across generations," said 7-Eleven vice president and CMO Rita Bargerhuff. "For 7-Eleven to provide these special cups in September while the band is on its concert tour will be a bonus for baby boomer, Gen X and millennial fans."

Each of the sleek, black cups features an individual closeup of a band member in signature black and white makeup. Ross von Rosenberg, art director at TPN, part of the FreshWorks consortium of agencies serving 7-Eleven, spoke of the style he used to create the new cups: "I used metallic ink and rock-and-roll style graphics to emphasize the heavy-metal aspect of these cups and make KISS appear larger than life. And really, I just wanted them to look as awesome as a face-melting KISS guitar solo sounds."
