FAN'S CARACAS REVIEW
WE WANTED THE BEST AND WE GOT IT!!

An Unforgettable KISS, set Caracas on Fire!



The Kiss concert in Caracas, Venezuela last Friday night was an experience out of this world, it was mind blowing...Words cannot express how it was like to be there at the stadium seeing, enjoying, breathing, and feeling KISS ALIVE!! During the show we had everything, since flames, explosions, fireworks,smoke, blood and even the rain decided to join us for a few minutes. The atmosphere was pure, exquisite, and raw rock and roll, we wanted the best and we got it!!

Definitely it was beyond my wildest dreams. A night that will always remain in my heart, a dream come true!2 hours and half of an impeccable display of sound, an amazing talent, greatness and perfection.. Plus the charisma of one of the best front man ever in rock history, Mr Paul Stanley, who kept during the whole show an incredible chemistry with the audience.One of the highlights for me was having Paul flying all over me, that was the most surreal moment of my life, he looked like coming out from a magazine and suddenly there he was all glamorous and stylish with his big boots in front of me singing Love Gun. I felt like I was inside of a DVD or something.

The whole show was filled with a great vibe, heat and a fantastic energy and adrenaline,the heaven got on fire and so we all did!! And to make the night even more memorable, they played with the help of the audience Forever, it was very moving, I was certainly one of the people screaming for it hehe..

Thank you so much KISS from coming to our country, much appreciated, hope to see you soon again. You made me feel what is like to be alive, and its awesome! I LOVE YOU! *hands down* We cant get enough from you!!

*kisses*

KISS FANS PUT SAULT IN RUNNING

by Frank Dobrovnik

Cdr. Paul Berlingieri of Kiss Army headquarters, Sault Ste. Marie division, was 'ecstatic' when his favourite rockers announced they would conduct their upcoming summer and fall tour based on the whims of their fans.

'I figured there must be a way to get people to vote,' said Berlingieri, who in real life is a 33-year-old elementary school teacher.

In what is believed to be the first-ever 'fan-directed tour,' Kiss is literally asking their fans to tell them where to go, 'whether they have to play a big city like Detroit or a corn field in Iowa,' he said.

That was two weeks ago. Berlingieri's ecstasy turned to something else in the following days as he logged on to kissonline.com and, despite his most diligent voting efforts, watched Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., linger around the bottom end of the top 200 cities. All that changed this week. He and a friend contacted Trevor Zachary, marketing and events manager for the Essar Centre, who spread the word.

By mid-Monday, the Sault was closer to the top 100; by Tuesday morning, it had cracked the Top 10. An apparent frenzy of voting leapfrogged it to No. 3 by 3:30 p. m.

The Sault is surrounded mostly by much larger centres, most Canadian.

Winnipeg has topped the list from the beginning, followed Tuesday by Oshawa, Kingston. After the Sault, Calgary, Toronto, Dallas, Peterborough, Ottawa and Edmonton round out the list.

Votes are weighted on a per-capita basis, so Belingieri is confident the Sault is on the map for a typical 20-to 25-city tour.

But even he couldn't have predicted 'we'd get up there that fast. I guess I didn't realize how many closet fans there are out there.'

Though the city boasts a 'strong nucleus' of fans it's not a hotbed of Kiss Army members, he said. Rather, he thinks the typical resident is attracted to the idea of seeing the spectacle that Kiss has become known for in its 35-year career.

'I think Kiss has been around so long that everybody knows about them and their fantastic stage show. It's a show you have to see at least once in your life.'

CALL TO ARMS FOR KISS ARMY

This article ran on the front page of yesterday's Peterborough Examiner

DEMAND KISS: Peterborough now running seventh in rock band's online poll to pick 40 cities for tour

Posted By SARAH DEETH , EXAMINER STAFF WRITER

Darryl Andrews is calling on members of the KISS Army to unite, lead the charge and vote for Peterborough in an online contest that could bring the rock band to the city.

The KISS Army is the name of the group's fan club and a general term describing KISS fans.

Andrews, the 38-year-old co-owner of Hair's the Thing on Dublin Street, has loved KISS for most of his life, describing the band as the perfect blend of rock stars and super heroes.

'KISS has been part of my life since I was six years old,' he said.

Andrews has seen KISS in concert 24 times, attended fan conventions and watched the band through its different phases.

Now he's watching the band's resurgence of popularity, he said.

But he's always had to travel to other cities to see them, and the contest creates the possibility of taking his two daughters to the show.

'And here's a chance to have them come play in your neck of the woods,' he said.

'When you see a KISS show, it's a whole other experience,' he said. 'They're larger than life.'

When he heard about the contest he immediately linked to the voting web-site from his Facebook account, Andrews said.

That's gotten his friends and family voting, he said, but he wants to see a strong effort from everyone.

Even those who don't like KISS should vote, he said, because the band's fame will shed positive light on concert venues such as the Memorial Centre.

'We need to get more acts in there. We need to get more bands,' he said.

A KISS concert would also bring additional money and fun into the city, he said.

And if Peterborough wins, Andrews promises his hair salon will step up and help fans prepare for the show.

'We'll be having a big hair thing if KISS comes to town,' Andrew said.

KISS dazzled Caracas with its impressive, hallucinogenic rock show!

The band offered a full two-hour concert with lights, fire and explosions, in which fans listened to classics like Rock and Roll All Nite, Lick It Up and I Was Made For Lovin' You.

In Thursday's press conference, Gene Simmons said: 'This show will be an incredible spectacle that has never been seen here before.' This was what the people thought when they attended yesterday's KISS concert in the Rinconada.
