Gene Simmons says Kiss fans can expect "new outfits, a brand new stage and millions more (dollars) put into it" when the group begins its Kiss Alive 35 tour to promote "Sonic Boom," its first new album in 11 years, on Sept. 25 in Detroit.

"That's just the history of Kiss," Simmons tells Billboard.com. "Simply put, any band you go to see for the same ticket price, you know Kiss is going to give you tenfold more. That's just a statement of fact."

Simmons says that besides the usual blood, fire and very tall boots, the focal point of the new production will be a video screen "that's literally as wide as the entire stage, so there ain't a bad seat in the house. We've got extra people on cameras and stuff like that, so there'll be multi-media in back to increase the visual impact as well as the sonic impact."

For those of you who have been living on another planet for the past few months, Kiss is celebrating its 35th anniversary by releasing a new album entitled Sonic Boom in October, and the band has been hyping the new disc as the best Kiss has recorded since the heyday of its classic lineup with albums like Rock And Roll Over and Destroyer.

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical when I first heard that. After all, Kiss is a band whose output has been, uh, "somewhat uneven" over the years, to put it diplomatically, and Kiss hasn't exactly been shy about over-selling its work in the past, whether it was deserving or not.

Okay, okay, I admit it... I was wrong. It turns out Sonic Boom really is the album Kiss fans have been waiting for all these years. From its no-frills production (no apparent Pro Tools trickery here) to its uber-classic put-your-fist-in-the-air rock anthems, Sonic Boom is the most satisfying album by a "classic rock" artist I've heard since... honestly, since I don't know when. Sadly, it's kind of accepted that most bands that are 35 years into their career are going to release new work that is in no way comparable to the albums that made their legacy. Sonic Boom destroys that pre-conception by delivering an album as raw and vital as the best of Kiss' back catalog.

DELIVERS MORE
Gene Simmons says that as always Kiss delivers more bang for your buck -- and the band's upcoming North American tour is no exception. The tour ties in the band' first new studio album in over a decade, called Sonic Boom, and kicks off at Detroit's Cobo Arena -- where their 1975 classic breakthrough album Alive! was originally recorded -- over two nights on September 25th and 26th.

Simmons says that once again the band has spared no expense on the costumes, lights, screens and sound system for the upcoming trek: "New outfits, brand new stage, millions more put into it -- that's the history of Kiss. Simply put, any band you go to see for the same ticket price, y'know, Kiss is gonna give you tenfold more. That's just a statement of fact. And there's a new screen, state-of-the-art; I don't think people have seen this kind of thing before -- that's literally as wide as the entire stage. So, there ain't a bad seat in the house."

Good Day Guys,

I am a Grade 4/5 teacher at Heritage School in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Every year I lead the school in a KISS day where all staff members and kids get in KISS makeup and we have Rock 'n' Roll events throughout the school. Here's a picture of last year's KISS Day.

Thanks,

PAUL SURPRISED WITH TELLY PRESENTATION
by Jill Cataldo

During an exhibition of his artwork on Saturday, Paul Stanley was honored with a surprise award ceremony at Wentworth Gallery in Schaumburg, Illinois.

Paul's concert film "One Live KISS" was selected as a Telly Award winner earlier this summer, and during Paul's art VIP reception, director and producer Louis Antonelli personally presented Paul with his Telly Award statuette and certificate.

"Several years ago... Paul and I embarked on making a motion picture together, and that picture has been considered a classic. We have been honored by being selected to win a 2009 Classic Gold Telly Award," said Antonelli. He added, "This is Paul's first time seeing [the awards,] and I think he's just an amazing artist and an amazing man. The opportunity to make this film with him and present him with these awards means the world to me, and to share it with him, of course, is an honor."

"That's a great surprise!" Stanley said, admiring the dual statuettes, adding, "Awesome... we did it!"

Producers Paul Stanley & Louis Antonelli both received the Classic Gold Telly Awards, which are presented to film & video productions that are considered to be the finest in the 30 year history of the Telly Awards.

Founded in 1978, the Telly is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional and cable TV programs, as well as the finest video and film productions. The 30th Annual Telly Awards received over 14,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents.

OSHAWA SNAPPED UP TICKETS!
Tickets to rock and roll all night with KISS in Oshawa have sold out.

The GM Centre's box office phone line confirmed today that all the tickets for the Oct. 7 concert are gone.

"Every single, solitary, last one is gone," Oshawa city councillor Robert Lutczyk told the Sun today. "Everything, not one is left."

Tickets went on sale to the general public this morning at 10 a.m. The centre was expected to hold around 5,600 people for the concert.

Members of the KISS ARMY and GM Centre's Backstage Pass were able to take advantage of pre-sales earlier this week but Lutczyk said he's heard every batch of tickets went like hot cakes.

"They all went in minutes," he said. "There was a huge demand for these things."

At least 100 fans spent two days lined up outside the GM Centre waiting for tickets. Early this morning, the line had grown to a few hundred.

"I doubt that the 10th person in line got tickets," Lutczyk said.

The Oshawa concert, a special premiere of the band's new album Sonic Boom, has been a long time in the making.
