OVER EUROPE
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
Dear Paul, Gene, Tommy & Eric,

Just wanna let you know - this is (once again) such an amazing, happy and unforgetable time as a true and loyal KISS-fan (I am proud to be since 1980). I have seen over 30 KISS shows since my early beginnings, but the "Sonic Boom"-Tour seems to be the best (right now - the "KISS lifetime party" isn't over yet!!) :-)

Great performance, great musicians (sober...), great setlist (I wanna fall on my knees for songs like "god gave rock'n'roll 2 U, lick it up, crazy, crazy nights..besides the new stuff from Sonic Boom!!), great mood on and in front of stage. I can't remember when I have seen Paul smiling and laughing that much on stage. It's such a joy!! The guys are having fun, enjoy what they do..and with whom they do that..you can feel this every single minute.

Europe loves KISS, Germany loves KISS (ever did!) - and I have never been more proud to be a KISS-fan for 30 years, although it never was "special trendy", hip or whatever. That's why we stick together as KISS Army members so very strong and loyal...I met so many real cool and kind KISS fans through the years who really became friends. No, we are not alone at all!!!! And yes, we are special, because we are unique!!;-)))

I just wanna take the opportunity to say thank you for this crazy, crazy time, for bringing colour in my life...happiness, humbleness etc. You cannot imagine what all the KISS experiences (on and off stage) mean to me. Nothing and no one can take away this from me (besides dementia some day...*uuuaaah*) ;-) I really love you, guys...and what you do with my heart and soul since 30 years! The party is not over!!

Love always and forever,

**JASMIN** www.jasmins-small-world.de Gene inspired Dragon

GENE SIMMONS CAKE
KISSONLINE
Check out this great KISS Cake from 'For Cake Sake'- A Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area company that specializes in custom cakes and cupcakes.

For Cake Sake Blog:

When my client ordered this cake I was so excited! I knew it was going to be challenging, but my most challenging ones are always my favorite. When I finished this one I just stood back in complete awe of my ability to make this character on my first try. He is made out of gumpaste and fondant and sculpted and painted by hand. I wish I could just keep him on a shelf in my office, but I think the birthday boy would have been sad if I took him back. Happy 6th Birthday Aiden!

Looking at the schedule of the 2010 European Tour of KISS, it sure makes you wonder how long this band will still be on the road presenting the hottest show on planet earth! A couple of years ago, during the KISS Alive 35 World Tour, we were treated with the live presentation of the legendary Alive! Album in its entirety. Last year KISS released the excellent - and already a favorite among the KISS fans - "Sonic Boom" and they embarked on a world tour that hit Europe in the spring under the tour title "Sonic Boom Over Europe". The show was hosted in the prestigious, modern indoor Papp Laszlo Budapest Sportarena that holds approximately 12.500 and the ticket prices ranged in between 35 and 60 Euros.

At 21:00 sharp, down went the huge black curtain that hid the stage and KISS appeared on a huge hydraulic platform, landed on stage and making a bombastic sonic intro with Modern Day Delilah with Eric Singer sitting on his throne/drum stool keeping the beat up and steady. The huge stage is absolutely unique and spectacular with a screen "decorating" the whole backdrop while two KISS Army Banners refined the whole scenery on the left and right of the stage.

Check out the cover of the latest issue of 'Rock Tribune', the number 1 selling rock magazine in Belgium. This will be one of the finest moments in my life ever.

INSPIRED BENTO BOX

KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

"I Wanna Rock & Roll All Nite..." Bento #92

Kawaii Bento Club is hosting a "Rock My Bento" contest where you create a bento based on a favorite song, band, or album cover. If I had to chose one hard rock song that I remember growing up, it would be "Rock and Roll All Nite" from the band KISS. Though I loved the song, I remember the band members even more. I mean who doesn't recognize KISS with all of their funky make-up and outer space garb! I chose to make Gene Simmons for my bento since he was KISS's front man. Gene is basically one big musubi- molded out of rice and stuffed with chicken karaage. His hair is made from hijiki (a Japanese seaweed) that I cooked in shoyu, sugar, and mirin. Gene's eyes and mouth are made out of kamaboko and his tongue from bologna. I also packed some grapes, broccoli, and a cherry tomato around his head. The KISS flag pick is made from a picture that I got off of the internet and attached to a pick.

AT DANISH ROCK 'N ROLL WEEKEND
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Hi KISS fans,

Just wanted to show you a photo of me and some friends. We go to Eisbjerghus Efterskole (kinda like a boarding school but way coooler :DD) in Denmark. And one weekend one of the Teachers was holding a Rock 'n Roll weekend, where we should make a music video and dress up like Rock stars :D! And then I thought "Why not dress up like KISS, since I'm a big fan?" I asked my friends to join and they did. We had about 3 hours to find all we needed, and we think that it looked perfect with the short notice we had :D. Then we went over to the music hall and made a video to "Love Gun".

Love(Gun),

Alberte (Tommy), Trine (Paul), Stine (Eric) And Christine (Gene) :DD
