Subject: KISS at Wembley
From: Ross Sampson on 05/19/2010

KISS - best ever! Wembley Arena Thursday nights KISS concert at Wembley wasn't just the best performance by you guys that I have seen ( and this was my second of this tour let alone before) but the best concert EVER! The choice of songs, the commitment, energy and show were simply incredible. Superb sound, knock-out effects and a truly jaw dropping screen set up behind and in front of the drum riser made sure the audience never missed a thing and was entertained through every single song with specially created graphics and videos.Nobody puts more into a show than you guys for the fans and you played 2 and a quarter hours - and your playing is better than it has ever been. KISS, more than any other band, know you are there for us and because of us and deliver what we want in spades. Great to see full families there along with us ( ahem!) older fans. None better. Never will be.

-ETTES IN MELBOURNE
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear KISS,

A group of students (and a couple of teachers) from Ivanhoe Girls' Grammar in Melbourne recently paid homage to your legendary band at their athletics carnival. God may have given them Rock'n'Roll, but you can take all the credit for the make up.

MY GARAGE IS HOTTER THAN HELL!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Hi KISS Army!

Saw KISS on "In concert" in 1974 and was hooked ever since. When they re-united in 1996, I painstakingly painted this 12 foot square "Hotter Than Hell" album cover on the back of my garage for a pre-concert party I hosted. Needless to say, it was a hit, and has been a neighborhood attraction for a while!

Best,
PJH

CARD CORNER CLUB

By Doug Cataldo

One look at the band KISS and you can instantly see why they have dominated the music/entertainment scene for over 35 years. Driven by the talents and business acumen of Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, KISS has persevered when other bands faded into obscurity. Not only have they written rock anthems that have stood the test of time, but they set the bar for merchandising their brand better than any other musical act. Collectors of KISS memorabilia have many avenues to choose from -- magazines, guitar picks, comic books or trading cards to name a few. The trading card aspect has improved tremendously since Press Pass has been producing KISS cards. They've just unleashed their latest set, The Legend of KISS, and you can find a 24-pack box in stores now for about $50. That's about $2 per pack.

The band is already colorful, larger than life and they have a storied history, so capturing their legacy on cardboard seems like a no-brainer. As far back as 1978 the band has been part of the non-sports card scene. Through the years, many other companies have produced KISS card sets, but none fully captured the elements that are familiar to modern trading card collectors, including autographs and memorabilia. Press Pass has taken KISS card collecting to the next level, and with Legends of KISS they've reached a new pinnacle.
