Dear KISS, just arrived some hours ago from melbourne and I wanna say thank you for the world tour start in melbourne! My wife and I just went to melbourne for your show and stayed 4 days. What did we do in 4 days? It`s easy to say: Day one, arrival and collect KISS Pole position Tix; Day two, make party with the KISS army australia; Day three, waiting 10 hours in front of Pauls stage position and saw the hottest band in the world; Day four, fly back to germany. Crazy? Yes we are, but KISS fans are crazy (especially australian fans-glad to met George and the other!) and this was one of the best KISS shows we saw. Thank you for this hot show!!! We are very happy to heared Tommy sung Shock me and did a fabulous solo. Can`t wait to see you in europe again. Hubert&Claudia

Hi guys, Congratulations on 35 years of KISS, that\'s an amazing achievement. I have been a fan since I first saw you back in 1983 and the Lick it up tour. I didn\'t know anything about you guys, a mate from work needed someone to go with him as his mate had broke his leg, so I said I would go. On the way to London he filled me in on what to expect from a KISS show, the make-up,costumes e.t.c.,e.t.c. It was going to be my first concert I had been to and I was looking forward to seeing you guys. When you came out on stage to my horror, I saw four guys that just looked like, well us the audience. There was no make-up,costumes,to say I was gutted was an understatement. It didn\'t take long before I was rocking along with the rest of the KISS army. The show was great, the music I fell in love with instantly, and what other group has two lead singers! It was an amazing night in London, and from then on I have been part of the KISS army. Since that night, I have watched you three more times, The Crazy Nights Tour, The Reunion Tour and The Psycho Circus tour, all at Wembley Arena. I have collected all your cds (including solos), dvds and spent around two thousand pounds on merchandise, including gold plated record plaques, lunch boxes,Kisstory 1 and 2,figures, Kiss tiles,30 year old Kiss bubblegum,die cast models, flasks, the list goes on. I don\'t have a favourite album or song, it depends on the mood I am in at the time. When life is getting me down a little I put on certain songs to pick me up, Shout it out loud, Rock and roll all nite, Deuce, Strutter. If I have had a hard day at work and need to relax with some soothing music, then I play songs like, I still Love you, Dreamin\' and Shandi. Whatever the mood I am in, I have KISS for the occasion. I want to thank you guys for giving me 25 years of pleasure, through your music, the merchandise I love to collect and for being The Hottest Band in the World! I once said you could not get a better front man than the late,great Freddie Mercury of Queen, I was wrong to say that. Paul, 35 years you have been the front man of Kiss, your energy, what you say on stage and getting us fans to participate in a carnival atmosphere and of course your amazing vocals. There is not a better front man anywhere in the world than you. Thirty five years on and you and Gene are still kicking ass, along with two other members who have joined the Kiss family, Eric and Tommy. Good luck with the tour, I know you are coming to the U.K for the 3 day festival, I was wondering any chance of you guys coming to the U.K and doing a couple of arena shows on your own. You are doing a World tour, please don\'t leave out the U.K. We might look like a small island to you guys, but there are a lot of Kiss army that are here dying to see you. It\'s been nearly 10 years since you last played here, please, come on over, I cant promise you brilliant weather, but I can promise the Kiss army will come out in full force to see you guys. You guys take care,the U.K is waiting for you! p.s 25 years I have been in the Kiss army, it\'s my anniversary, you gotta come! chris

Like the other writers here, I just also wanted to say how awesome the Albert Park show was. Have been a massive KISS fan since mid 70\'s and have seen quite a few shows and this was right up there in my opinion. Having a position in the front row helped, even got to catch one of Eric\'s drumsticks (only threw out 2) which topped off an amazing weekend. Seeing KISS again in Sydney tomorrow night (Thursday) and am already pumped for it. Also catching up with them again in Berlin in June.....can\'t wait for that one. Again, thank you so much Gene,Paul,Tommy & Eric for showing us and the world what true rock music is and how it should be played

Hi all, Melbourne GP was nothing short of spectacular. Those able to bear the heat out in 100 fahrenheit weather were rewarded with a front row vantage point. Many of us raced to the stage at 0830 and 10.5 hours later had no complaints, the wait was worth every minute !

Hi all, What a weekend, 5 hours waiting on Saturday for autographs - success ! It was great to meet the band. As many may have experienced the autograph session took place very quickly on Saturday. So quickly that I missed getting a photo of my son with Paul. Jayden (JD) had Paul sign a red KISS shirt, JD was the bare chested one ! He then promptly turned him around and posed for photos with him. Unfortunately I was already up getting autographs so missed the photo opportunity. Does anyone recognize the below ? Does anyone recall taking a photo of a bare chested kid holding a red shirt ? It would be great to see and can get a copy to frame with his signed T-Shirt. Would Kaori Hashimoto recognize or have taken a photo ? mljc@tpg.com.au . GP photos to follow ! Thanks all Cheers Mark

Hey guys. I was ecstatic to hear you were touring Europe again after all these years. I have been watching clips of your Australian shows on youtube.... AWESOME!!!! The Download Festival at Donington can not come soon enough for me. I was just wondering if there were any plans to play some Arena dates in the UK too?? I have to admit I do prefer to watch you guys in slightly more intimate venues, all though I do realize you can perform a much bigger show at out door festivals. Love you guys!

From: Marc Howard on 03/18/2008
Just thought I would share my first ever front row experience at a KISS show, and boy are my ears still ringing! The boys all looked like they were having heaps of fun, which seems to be the norm whenever they travel down under. I was situated right in front of Tommy and he flattened us with \"Shock Me\", the crowd went wild for him and rightly so, he played brilliantly. Pity about Gene\'s harness failing during his solo, but he left nobody in doubt that KISS risk their lives to entertain us all, and have done so for 35 years. Here\'s to 35 more!
Albert Park was actually really really fantastic
Subject: Albert Park was actually really really fantastic
From: FrankEEE on 03/17/2008
Hi there, OK - here's the deal: I was a huge Kiss fan when I turned 8(!) - I am now 30something btw -and my brother (then 12) bought himself 2 albums with his birthday money: Double P and Dynasty. Well - our mother would not allow for one son to buy this much merch for himself - and she wasn't really into Hard Rock - so I had to buy Dynasty of him. Stop. Having been too young at the time to ever see Kiss live - later (say) getting out of touch me and my brother went to see the guys in Frankfurt in 1997 or 98, can't remember ... Live in 3D it was - and lived up our 'nostalgia'. Well - since 2000 I am living in Albert Park and being a HUGE F1 fan I was pleasantly surprised by the opportunity to see Kiss yet one more time. I wasn't sure what to expect, but gotta admit: it was a great show all up. In fact the whole thing just really worked with me - Ferrari starting in front of me - Kiss finishing in front of me ... sorta cool, if you're into it! Anyhow - I stood back a little since I really wanted to check the pyro stuff in full motion and my small group of friends and me just had an incredible night. And by the way: the live sound was fantastic - like I have never heard a live concert before - whoever was mixing this 'gig' did an incredible job ... and another 'by the way': it wasn't 50k people ... it was 65k! I got a pic for youse - but it's hard to get a good shot with a shitty little digi cam from far behind ... anyhow here ya go. Catch
