Iím sixteen years old and I was at the Bell Center concert. I just canít explain all the feelings that I passed through that night! I was at school when I knew that Kiss would come to Montreal and I just cried, I couldínt believe it. Iíve been counting the days one by one, I dreamed about this day. Kiss changed me in many ways, Kiss is another way to live life. The show was just.. incredible. Iím out of words, I was in another world. I cried, screamed, jumped and sang every song. Iíve never felt like I felt this night, and it was in front of my heroes, in front of KISS! I respect every Ď step í that the band pass through, I donít have de words to tell you how much I admire everything, the awesome music, the unique show, all those crazy KissArmy members.. Iím PROUD to be a Kiss fan. When Paul sayed : And iíll tell you something... WEíLL BE BACK IN OCTOBER, WILL YOU COME TO SEE US?? Ė my world just lightened up again, happiness wasínt enough to describe what Iíve felt and what I feel right now.

All I can say is thank you, so much Kiss

See you in October, hell yeah!!

Dear KISS,

A couple of years ago, our office dressed up as...well...you!! We had such a blast. We work a the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. We walked around all day showing off our costumes that we each put together ourselves and we even did our own make up.

You guys are awesome!

Just wanted to share.

P.s. Sorry for the nun, she was praying for our souls. : )
-PASO ROBLES-
Subject: KISS-PASO ROBLES-
From: Jon Law Hastings on 07/29/2009
The Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles, CA was DESTROYED last night.

It was overrun by an army.

It was taken to the extreme of what a LOUD ROCK CONCERT (or any concert for that matter) should be.

KISS was not allowed to use a lot of pyro due to the size of the venue. It did not matter and it showed, doubly, why KISS is vastly underrated when it comes to the QUALITY of their songs.

Gene was not allowed to do the 'blood' due to the family atmosphere at the fair. Did not matter and it showed that KISS is much more than a 'gimmick' band.

They hit the stage at 8:30 and left at 11:30. 3 hours of ROCK AND ROLL. Loud, in your face and most of all FUN.

KISS is a visual and sonic presence that can not be matched by any other band. Anywhere.

Sure there may be 'harder' rock music or crazier looking characters in music, BUT....What all the others LACK that KISS has the ability to turn it all into one package of greatness.

I've seen KISS open tours. I've seen KISS open for Aerosmith and blow them away, I've seen KISS on mid-tours and I've seen them now close a tour. I will tell you that in every one of my KISS experiences. I have never seen them have the 'fun' and 'purpose' that they presented last night. These guys were there to tear that place apart.

The crowd was amped. The ages of the fans ranged from young to old. I saw families coming to this show. The tradition is carrying on. The KISS ARMY is alive and well.

Fan or not you can NOT deny that KISS is a true American Icon. There is not one 'ROCK' band from this country that has been around as long or carried on a fan base that still demands to see them. 35+ years later.

The band showed last night that the new album coming out on October 6, 2009 will be worth the wait. I predict this will surpass what are considered to be their two 'best' albums Destroyer and Revenge by far.

I can safely say that this band, in its current form, are the best musical lineup this band has had since it was non-makeup with Gene-Paul-Eric-Bruce.

If you're a doubter. You will continue to doubt. Why? I have no idea. All it will take is for you to go get yourself a ticket for the fall tour. I would love to hear all you bashers on the other side of whatever show you went too....I know what I'd probably see is you, the basher, walking out of the arena sweaty-overcome from the sonic and visual assault-running to the merch booth and buying all you see. It is not something new.

KISS has always been renowned as being the top live act around. For anyone to have not seen them and still say they 'suck' tells me that their opinion is nonsense in the fullest sense of the word.

Old band- 3 chords-2 original guys-bad music-BLAH BLAH BLAH----it does not matter.....what anyone says. KISS will be there to put a proverbial middle finger to your opinions EVERY TIME. That is what I love about this band. It's the fact that no matter WHAT.....They have hung in there and battled back to be 'on top' or close to it so many times. No amount of adversity has stopped them. Ever. KISS is not about the 'people in it' anymore. It's MUCH bigger than that. It's something that will be talked about eons from now. Say what you will, but you know I'm right.

I defy anyone that was at that Paso Robles show last night to tell me this was not the best show they'd seen EVER. I heard so many people on the way out last night. All of them saying "WOW"...or "AMAZING"...or "I CAN'T HEAR A THING"....It was just out of sight how hard these guys rocked it last night.

I am safe in knowing I'll be seeing them again...However....If I was not able to ever again, I'd point to this show as what KISS concert should always be.

Hi there,

here you receive our family-halloween-postcard from 2005. We dressed up like KISS and took the photos. Finally it was a little photoshopped, too.

We've sent the postcard to our friends and families and had a great response.
Clockwise from top left: Our son Paul, me (Martin), my wife Eva and our other son Henry.

We saw you in Stuttgart, Germany in June last year and it was a great show.

Thank you
and best regards,

Martin from Germany

Hi KISS!

We just saw KISS rock the capital here in Ottawa, Canada and it was an amazing show!! That night my 2 1/2 year old son Cooper became a Jr. KISS ARMY member and wanted to send his thanks for such a great show with this pic! He has memorized all the band member names and can sing a few lines of 'Lick it up' already. I think its time to burn down the disney room and make it a KISS room!! Thanks again guys and ROCK ON!!!

Guys - My son Zakk is stoked about the possibility of Kiss coming to Nashville - he's been a fan since he was in the womb. The kid is only 4 but freaked when he saw the Gene costume online and asked my wife and I to buy the suit. He's saving for the meet and greet package (with our help). Hope to see you in Nashville!

From: Claudia on 07/28/2009
Hey KISS, just wanna give you a kind response about the first Canada shows. We traveled on thursday from Germany to Canada to join your first 3 concerts there. Arriving on friday 1am, we drove to Sarnia, stood in the 1st row (on Genes site) and saw an amazing bayfest show. On saturday we drove to Windsor, been in the 6th row on Tommys site ... whow. And on monday we had the privilege to saw the montreal sold out concert. It was my 40th birthday on monday and my husband made this 5 day concert trip as a present to me and with this amazing monday show YOU made a big present to me.
We saw the tour kick off in Melbourne last year and of course some shows in Europe (with one of the best days in our lives-the M&G in Holland-thank you for beeing so nice to us). With this 3 shows in Canada, we found a personal finish of our Alive 35 tour (the Montreal show was on the 13th of July and it was my 13th KISS show and for us the best inside show of your tour. What a great atmosphere, wasn`t it).
Eric and Tommy, thanx for playing this great and worthful roles in the band. Without your playing, we are sure, there would be no KISS anymore!
See you in october.
You rock!!!
Yours Claudia
Thanks Guys

Alot of years have gone by.......I've grown up with Kiss......Kiss music has always been in my house. I learned to play guitar because of Ace Frehley...I bought my one and only Les Paul when I was 19 I pumped gas all summer and a week before christmas in 1993 I went and bought my guitar it's on my pictures in my army profile. Kiss today is a mature Kiss and fully understands what it means to have we fans.....and in turn we understand what it means to have them. Tommy and Eric saved the band they make them better I got to meet Eric and let me tell you he was gracious,kind,and very friendly he signed pictures for us talked with us not just b.s. but wanted to know about me and my wife,he took the time to reallyenjoy his time with us I'll never forget it......it's the Kiss way and they never forget who put them where they are and it means the world to me. Thanks Guys for being America's Band,The People's Band and now and forever the World's hottest Band!
