GENE SIMMONS' FACE PAINT PRIDE
CONTACT MUSIC
Gene Simmons will "cry with happiness" if he sees young fans dressed up as him on the forthcoming KISS tour.

The rockers kick off their series of concerts next month and admits he will be overcome with emotion if he sees youngsters emulate the group's heavily made-up appearance.

Gene - who is famous for his 'Demon' black and white face paint - said: "When I see a five-year old in KISS make-up on his Dad's shoulders at one of our concerts I will cry with happiness."

The 60-year-old star says fans going to the concerts will be in for a treat because the shows are so spectacular.

He told Absolute Radio DJ Iain Lee: "KISS is about size and the bigger the better. At some of the really big outdoor shows we have had to warn local airports not to send planes overhead because the fireworks can go up 500 feet."
