KISS ARMY ROCKS KANSAS!

KISS ARMY members of all ages gathered last Sunday for the first ever Kansas KISS Fan Expo, and as you can see in the photos, a great time was had by all! Special guest Bruce Kulick spent the entire day visiting with fans, signing autographs and posing for photos. He also held a Q&A with the fans and jammed with KISS Tribute band DRESSED TO KILL, who closed out the Expo with a rockin' set of KISS Classic!

Fans got a first-hand look at the new KISS Tourbook and T-shirts at our KISSONLINE table! Thanks to everyone who stopped by and chatted with us...The KISS ARMY Rules!

GENE IN DETROIT METAL CITY FILM
ANIME NEWS NETWORK


DEMON GOD OF ROCK AND ROLL

Detroit Metal City Film, a live-action manga remake.

Gene Simmons, the co-founder and lead vocalist of the Kiss rock band, revealed on his website that he shot a cameo for Toshio Li's live-action film adaptation of Kiminori Wakasugi's Detroit Metal City manga. According to the website's April 10 entry, Simmons played the 'Demon God of Rock and Roll.' Not coincidentally, his real-life onstage persona is nicknamed 'The Demon.' His band's signature white-and-black face corpse paint and 'Detroit Rock City' song inspired the look and name of the fictional Detroit Metal City band in Wakasugi's rock parody manga.

Simmons flew to Japan the morning after his band's March 22 show in New Zealand for his shoot. The film will open in Japan in August, and a camera crew for the Gene Simmons Family Jewels reality television series shot behind-the-scenes footage that will air in the future. In the movie, Ken'ichi Matsuyama (Death Note, NANA, Sexy Voice and Robo) stars as Sōichi, a struggling pop singer who finally becomes a hit when he reluctantly leads a metal rock band under the stage name 'Johannes Krauser II.'

SECURITY CONCERNS FORCE CANCELLATION

WITH DEEP REGRET, KISS CANCELS BELGRADE SHOW

We regret that due to security concerns relayed by US government intelligence and the unwillingness of our tour insurance policy to cover our concert, we have been left with no choice but to cancel our show in Belgrade. Because of our excitement at returning to play for our many Serbian fans, we all share in the same disappointment and it is our hope to return soon.
