10 YEARS LATER: KISS RETURNS TO BRAZIL

Gene Simmons, bass player and vocalist of KISS, is a rock hero with a long tongue. He's an excellent speaker with a masterful grasp of the language of rock. At 59 years, the most famous tongue in music gave an interview on the band's new tour stop in Brazil.

Ten years after its last stop in the country (when KISS played for 40,000 people in Interlagos) the group returns to Brazil with its KISS Alive 35 tour. Playing...

FAN'S SAO PAULO REVIEW

Hello KISS ARMY!

Tonight is a special night for me... I just attended my first ever KISS concert a few hours ago! I'll share some interesting/mildly amusing tidbits of tonight's concert along with some random thoughts of this current lineup:

- Paul's vocals were really strong.... it was a very solid performance overall.

- Gene and Paul (especially Paul) were strangely upbeat, and both of them were having a great time with the audience. I know these guys are professionals entertainers, but I got the impression they were as happy as ever standing on that stage.

- Eric Singer is awesome... I mean really awesome! I love...

POLICE CLOSE HIGHWAY FOR KISS!

This is the band with the police department of Sao Paulo, Brazil. They closed the entire free way for KISS, just like they do for the President! It would have been like closing the 405 from Orange County up to LA.

It was crazy!

KISS FANS TO DECIDE ROUTING

This year marks 35 years since KISS unleashed Gene Simmons tongue on an unsuspecting world, and now you have a chance to bring the costumed rock ‘n roll crusaders to your town in the first-ever 'fan-routed' tour.

To accomplish this bit of KISS derring do, the band has partnered with social media company Eventful to make fans dreams a reality come September.

According to a statement released by the band:

'No matter where the fans say – from stadiums to cornfields – if there are enough votes, KISS will be there!'

Furthermore, the balloting will be weighted to give small towns a fair chance with the final site...

KISS TURNS TO EVENTFUL

KISS' upcoming U.S. and Canadian tour will be entirely routed based on demand at event-based social networking site Eventful, a first for a major act.

Fans will 'demand' where Kiss will perform on their tour across the top-voted North American markets beginning this September. And in order to keep the competition fair for smaller cities, final site selection will weigh population size versus total votes. An official video announcement by the band's Paul Stanley, Eric Singer, Tommy Thayer and Gene Simmons began the promotion Monday.

Fans across the U.S. and Canada can cast their votes at eventful.com/Kiss to have their town included...

ANOTHER GREAT REVIEW FROM CHILE
KISSONLINE.com
KISS ARMY CHILE ALIVE & WELL!

Another great KISS review from Chile! This one's from Revolver Magazine.

Photo by Carla Pasten.

Legendary rock band KISS and its face-painted, platform stomping, ear pounding, flame throwing extravaganza lit up the sold-out Estadio Municipal de La Florida in Santiago Friday night with the loudest, brightest and hottest concert of the festival.

KISS' first performance in Chile since 1997 featured a barrage of pyrotechnics, confetti, fireworks and amplifiers that left nothing to be desired by any card-carrying, flag waving, air-guitar playing, tongue wagging KISS Army member.

'Santiago is a rock city,' guitarist and lead singer Paul Stanley screamed in between songs. 'We love you!'

After Chilean rock band Racimo opened for the night, the New York City-based headliners burned through classics including 'Detroit Rock City,' 'Lick It Up,' 'I Was Made For Loving You,' 'I Love It Loud,' 'Shout It Out Loud' and classic rock anthem 'Rock and Roll All Nite.'

Bassist Gene Simmons flailed his larger-than-life tongue, breathed fire, spewed 'blood' and even soared to rock from the rafters. Stanley ziplined from the stage to a tower in the center of the stadium, flying over the outstretched hands of the shrieking crowd. Lead guitarist Tommy Thayer shot fireworks out of the head of his guitar and drummer Eric Singer and his drum platform were lifted into the air above gusts of fog.

Even if you weren't a huge KISS fan, you had to appreciate the immense spectacle and would still be in awe of the amount of coordination and organization it took to pull such a complex act off without a hitch.

The grand finale performance of 'Detroit Rock City' appeared to feature about every piece of pyrotechnics available in the Santiago metro area with fireworks popping over the stadium, flames bursting, spouting and spinning on the stage as well as an engulfing fog spewing from the sides and cannons of confetti showering the crowd.

After the show, friends were high fiving, KISS families were hugging, ears were ringing and faces were beaming as attendees relished in what they just had witnessed: one of the best rock shows of all time and the perfect cap to an intense, action-packed music festival.
