KLITSCHKO ROCKS WITH
By THOMAS DIERENGA
Translated for KISSONLINE

The gentlemen are a little older. Since 1974 they have sold approximately 80 million records.

They are called The Demon, The Starchild, The Spaceman and The Cat. They are known under the band name KISS. And their stage show is as addicting as crack ...

Just like Vladimir Klitschko (33.) KISS gave him an order: Rock "Fast Eddie" out!

The boxing world champion met the hard rockers at "Wetten, dass ..?" in Erfurt.

Guitarist Paul Stanley and bass player Gene Simmons (with the long tongue) identified themselves as Klitschko fans since the last time the double Champs visited the United States.

Stanley handed Klitschko his battered Washburn guitar, stating: "Do the same with Eddie Chambers!"

"Fast" Eddie Chambers won the World Cup in Hamburg, fighting with a win over Universum fighter Carl Froch. Now, the AMI calls Klitschko on March 20 in the Dusseldorf Arena(live, RTL.)

GERMAN FANS TURN ON THE NIGHT
During tonight's episode of Germany's "Wetten, Dass..?" ("Wanna Bet?") the show's nightly "bet" asked for 1,500 KISS fans to come to the filming wearing KISS makeup. Could enough fans line up in letter outlines to spell "KISS," shining flashlights upward to create a live KISS logo? KISS later came outside and joined the fans for "God Gave Rock and Roll to You!"

FAN REPORT FROM "WETTEN, DASS" BROADCAST
Hi KISSonline,

Here's my first report form the "Wetten, dass...?" show tonight that aired on German/Swiss television! It was so exciting!

KISS played a medley of "Say Yeah" and "I Was Made for Lovin' You." The crowd in the hall welcomed the band with grandiose, huge and loud applause. People stood up from their seats and paid tribute to these legends of rock. Pyro effects supported the stage presence of the band, and KISS hijacked the audience into another world. At the end, Paul Stanley smashed his guitar. Even after the last note, the audience didn't stop their applause, screaming and singing. What a great standing ovation, great mood and ambiance!

KISS WAS, IS AND WILL BE THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE WORLD! FOREVER!!!!!!

Your KISS friend and fan from Switzerland
