United Nations of KISS Fans

Well I gotta say, it took 30 years but I finally got to meet KISS face to face (twice) or should I say face to makeup? The experience at the Meet and Greets were beyond my wildest expectations and will last a lifetime, as were the two shows I attended in Copenhagen, Denmark and in Prague, Czech Republic. Thanks Gene, Paul, Thommy, and Eric.
Being a longtime KISS fan sometimes you just do not realize how many other KISS fans share the same passion towards the music and all around KISS attitude… Fans came from all over the world to attend the Copenhagen and Prague shows. There was no boundary in age as KISS fans of all ages and all walks of life turned up for the shows I attended. I guess I can best describe it as it was though we had known or had seen one another before like old friends, with the common bond being KISS.
The people I had the privilege to meet and get to know at the Copenhagen and Prague shows were incredible! The traveling they endured to get to the show, stories about when and how they became fans, the shows they’ve attended in the past and the experience shared at the show we had just seen created new friendships with the promise of meeting again, at another future KISS concert of course.
After the concerts everywhere we went we met other KISS fans and we all could relate to one another through the spectacle we had just witnessed in Alive 35.
KISS fans are truly unlike any other Rock And Roll fans. They are indeed an ARMY from all over the Globe coming together to celebrate Alive 35. The United Nations of KISS…..
The same can be said of KISS’s crew and management for they too are unique and you can sense that they truly enjoy what they do. People like Dean Snowden who was absolutely brilliant at coordinating the Meet and Greets and sharing jokes while making everyone feel at ease before meeting the legends, and even taking photos for some fans that couldn’t hold their cameras in the presence of KISS. Even Doc came out and posed for pictures with us…. What a crew and management…Second to none along with all you KISS fans…
Thanks KISS for the music and great times throughout the years and may there be many more to come…Shout It Out Loud….
