FAN DEMANDS !
FAN FIGHTS TO BRING KISS TO BELLEVILLE!

By W. Brice McVicar The Intelligencer

Marcel Dubé can still remember the first time he saw the rock ‘n roll band KISS.

'My first introduction was when I saw them on the Paul Lynde Halloween Special,' said Dubé, who was six at the time, of the 1976 television special. 'I remember seeing them and I thought they were amazing and I wanted to be like them.'

Today, at 39, Dubé is as close to being a member of the band as one can — he is the drummer in the KISS tribute band Fried Alive. The group features four members performing classic KISS hits in full makeup.

Wearing his makeup and sitting behind his drum kit, Dubé only sings one major KISS song — Beth — but will be singing the praise of his favourite band this Friday at his workplace. Dubé said he plans to go to Stream on Dundas Street West at this week s end in full makeup and encourage his co-workers to visit kissonline.com where people can vote to bring KISS to their city. The city that gathers the most votes — Belleville is currently sitting at No. 93 — will be rewarded by having the band play there.

For Dubé, bringing KISS to Belleville would be a major accomplishment.

'I m spreading the word to the KISS Army and trying to figure out how I can get as many people as possible to vote,' he said. 'I d love to see them here. They re almost like superheroes the way they re dressed up and the make-up and there s lots of theatrics. You just don t see bands today who are anything like them.'

It s not just Dubé who is spreading the word and trying to have more people cast their vote online. The Belleville and District Chamber of Commerce has also come on board as a promoter.

Angela Genereaux, the chamber s chief executive officer, said a notice had been sent out to all members encouraging them to cast their vote.

'It s exciting. Anything we can do to bring KISS to Belleville is great,' she said. 'We have already witnessed the benefits of Big Music Fest and the Classic Rock Festival so just imagine the excitement we d see in a city of 46,000 if we brought KISS here.'

Once again, you are everywhere. I watch WOW, WOW WUBBZY with my 3 year old. A special episode featuring Beyonce just aired. While Wubbzy was searching for his 'identity' to appear onstage with Beyonce, they showed him in your make-up. STILL affecting generations, my man. Keep it up!

THIS DAY IN TORY 1990
HOT IN THE SHADE TOUR

KISS began their Hot In The Shade Tour May 4th, 1990 in Lubbock, Texas and went on to perform over 120 shows before ending Nov. 9th at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The tour featured the biggest KISS stage since the 70's with a huge Sphinx nicknamed Leon as the center piece. KISS made a dramatic entrance through Leon's mouth while surrounded by green lasers. Though there was no "You wanted the best, you got the best" intro, an energetic KISS tore through a 21 song set list spanning their entire career.

Several other KISS concert staples, Gene breathing fire and Paul smashing his guitar, were also absent from the show. But Leon was the perfect compliment to the powerful KISS set, shooting fireworks out of his eyes and "singing" the middle section of "God of Thunder" before collapsing to the stage during the bombastic end of "Detroit Rock City". On the encore, KISS brought out the mirrored ball and the famous lighted KISS sign finally made an appearance, rising slowly from below the stage to the roar of the crowd as KISS kicked into "I Want You".

Set list most nights:

I Stole Your Love / Deuce / Heaven's On Fire / Crazy, Crazy Nights / Lick It Up / Black Diamond / Shout It Out Loud / Strutter / Calling Dr. Love / Rise To It / Fits Like A Glove / God Of Thunder / Forever / Hide Your Heart / Cold Gin / Tears Are Falling / I Love It Loud / Love Gun / Detroit Rock City / I Want You / Rock And Roll All Nite

On a few occasions during the tour KISS would also perform "C'mon And Love Me" and "I Was Made For Lovin' You". Eric Carr also sang "Little Caesar" at least once on the tour, which would be his last.
