Both bands repeatedly thrilled the sold-out Amphitheatre crowd of 16,000

At the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, Aug. 12.

Does Gene Simmons’ fire-breathing swordplay, bloodied mouth shtick and ever-undulating serpentine tongue ever get old?

Not if you’re a member of the KISS Army. The larger-than-life, cartoon-costumed, makeup-sporting hard rockers have entrenched the routines so heavily into their modus operandi for the past 40 years that replacing them as this point and time would be akin to the surgical removal of a vital organ.

So Tuesday night’s double bill of KISS with Def Leppard at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre wasn’t so noticeable in terms of the new stuff as much as flaunting the familiar, something that both bands are very good at doing since they’re approaching their greying years, though sporting the energy and vitality of artists who are 20 years younger.

In a continuation of the happenstance “Headbangers Week” theme that began Sunday at the venue with the Mötley Crüe/Alice Cooper concert, nostalgia played a key role in the KISS/Def Leppard pairing, with both bands repeatedly thrilling the sold-out crowd of 16,000 that had gathered to witness their heroes.

With Def Leppard, it was less about flash and more about substance, performing an incredible string of wall-to-wall hits over the course of 70 minutes culled from their heyday era in the ’80s and early ’90s.

KISS may be celebrating four decades as a band, but Gene Simmons is adamant that there won't be a retirement party any time soon – they still have plenty of fire left to breathe out of them.

When asked whether the legendary rockers, which is in the midst of a long 40th anniversary tour (it makes its only Canadian appearance at Toronto's Molson Amphitheatre Tuesday night), will ever retire from the road, the fiery singer-bassist, as per usual, has a very pointed response.

"We've got a few more tours left in us,” he says. “We enjoy what we do, and we're all on the same page, so there's no reason to stop. Match up any band past or present up against us, and we'll whoop their asses each and every time."

SCRANTON - Over the past 22 years, I’ve reviewed hundreds of rock concerts. But I can’t recall too many times when I’ve written one in the first person.

Today will be an exception to the norm. In fact, what I’ll write today is probably more of a commentary than a traditional review.

KISS rocked The Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton on Saturday night. It was my 33rd time seeing the band. Those shows have been scattered over three decades, dating back to 1984. And this got me to thinking, “Why do I – and millions of others – keep coming back? What makes KISS so special?” And, while putting on my “rock journalism” hat, I also asked myself after Saturday night’s show if the KISS magic was really still there.

If you’ve been reading my writings over the past two decades, you probably know that I am a KISS fan. And, if you didn’t know, and the fact that I already told you about my 33 ticket stubs wasn’t enough to tip you off, the Paul Stanley-style rose tattoo on my right arm would probably do the trick. So, in offering my thoughts on Saturday’s show, I also give you full disclosure:

EPIC RIGHTS AND LIQUID BLUE TO INTRODUCE A NEW LINE OF KISS AND MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL CO-BRANDED APPAREL FOR FANS


Liquid Blue and Epic Rights in Collaboration with MLB Have Created a Unique T-Shirt Line Featuring Iconic KISS Imagery Along With Logos of Fans’ Favorite Major League Baseball Teams

Epic Rights—the full service, global branding and merchandising company representing the merchandising, licensing, e-commerce and digital media interests of legendary rock band KISS—has knocked it out of the park with another big partnership scoring an all-new KISS apparel program with Major League Baseball (MLB) and apparel licensee Liquid Blue, a licensee of Major League Baseball Properties, Inc. The announcement was made today by Lisa Streff, Senior Vice President, Licensing, Epic Rights.

The new collection of all-American t-shirts—Play Ball with KISS—will combine the rock fashion sense of KISS with the instantly recognizable logos representing the New York Yankees and New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers and The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, Pittsburgh Pirates, Detroit Tigers, Washington Nationals, Oakland Athletics, and the St. Louis Cardinals. Under the Play Ball with KISS collection, Liquid Blue is launching a themed line, Dressed to Kill, and preparing a second themed apparel line called Locker Plate, inspired by the KISS song “Detroit Rock City,” which will be introduced later in the year.

“We are die-hard Major League Baseball fans, and it’s a thrill for KISS to be featured as MLB players from some of our favorite teams in this spectacular graphic artwork,” KISS’s Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons jointly state. “We are ready to ‘play ball,’ with KISS and MLB fans.”
