GERMAN FANS TURN ON THE NIGHT
WETTEN, DASS
During tonight's episode of Germany's "Wetten, Dass..?" ("Wanna Bet?") the show's nightly "bet" asked for 1,500 KISS fans to come to the filming wearing KISS makeup. Could enough fans line up in letter outlines to spell "KISS," shining flashlights upward to create a live KISS logo? KISS later came outside and joined the fans for "God Gave Rock and Roll to You!"

FAN REPORT FROM "WETTEN, DASS" BROADCAST
KOL FAN LETTER
Hi KISSonline,

Here's my first report form the "Wetten, dass...?" show tonight that aired on German/Swiss television! It was so exciting!

KISS played a medley of "Say Yeah" and "I Was Made for Lovin' You." The crowd in the hall welcomed the band with grandiose, huge and loud applause. People stood up from their seats and paid tribute to these legends of rock. Pyro effects supported the stage presence of the band, and KISS hijacked the audience into another world. At the end, Paul Stanley smashed his guitar. Even after the last note, the audience didn't stop their applause, screaming and singing. What a great standing ovation, great mood and ambiance!

KISS WAS, IS AND WILL BE THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE WORLD! FOREVER!!!!!!

Your KISS friend and fan from Switzerland

ESPN TO AIR PIECE SUNDAY

KISS-TORY IN THE MAKING

ESPN will air a KISS piece during SportsCenter on Sunday at 10 a.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.

It was 1974 at Cadillac High School in Central Michigan, and you could hear a pin drop in the way-too-tight locker room before football games. That's when an enterprising assistant coach named Jim Neff had an idea -- why not rev up the defense by playing a little pregame rock 'n' roll? Like, for example, KISS? When the bold plan led to a big winning streak and a conference title, Neff and the band he loved hatched a daring plan to bring KISS to Cadillac's 1975 Homecoming. Chris Connelly looks back at two outrageous days in the history of high school football.

KISS AT HIGH SCHOOL HOME COMING

KISS!

At Wilmot Union High School, during homecoming week, our students had to dress as their favorite rock star/group. Their very own principal, being the #1 Kiss fan in the history of Wilmot Union High School and maybe the whole world, poses with a couple of our best dressed Kiss fans!

Thanks,

ARRIVES IN GERMANY
KISSFANCLUB.DE
Hard-rock superstars KISS did not travel by stretch limousine or even private jet when they arrived in Frankfurt -- instead taking a regular Deutsche Bahn train from Erfurt for their network television performance on "Wetten, Dass..?"

KISS had "a compartment reserved directly behind the driver," concert organizer Ossy Hoppe stated at a press conference in Frankfurt. He added that the American musical legends are very straightforward, stating, "There were no special requests." The choice of transport was due to logistical reasons: "On Friday afternoon, we'd need four hours on highway; by train, we'd be there in a good two hours."

Kiss guitarist and vocalist Paul Stanley said, "Sometimes we see a little of the landscape this way." When initially approached on the train, he joked: "We've already purchased the train!"

Kiss will be on German television Saturday for the first time in ten years in the German TV. "We are pleased to be here," said singer Gene Simmons (60).

In May and June, KISS will return for concerts in Germany: Leipzig (21.5.), Berlin (26.5.), Hamburg (31.5.) Oberhausen (1.6.) Festivals Rock am Ring and Rock im Park (3 to 5.6 .)
