KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Mona Sahlin: "I have liked KISS since the 1970s."

Social Democratic party leader Mona Sahlin is a regular, faithful guest at the Hultsfred festival.

Tonight, she is also attending the KISS concert in Stockholm, confirms her press secretary Camila Buzaglo Peirone.

Yes, that's right. She is there as a private person. "She is a music lover and really like all kinds of music," said Camila Buzaglo Peirone.

Mona Sahlin is attending the concert with her son, Gustav, 21. Like his mother, he enjoys the band's music, and they've been to concerts together before.

A FOR SAULT STE. MARIE
SAULT STAR
By Frank Dobrovnik

You waited for the best, you'll get the best.

In other words, Kiss is definitely going to make up for the scrubbed Dec. 15 show in Sault Ste. Marie, and it's going to happen sooner rather than later. That was the message Thursday morning on Rock 101.3, where host Scott Cook assured listeners the stars are aligning for the rock gods to make their way to the Essar Centre. A summer date is tentatively scheduled, Cook said.

"There's so much doubt they're coming at all at this point, I just wanted to give people a little tease that they are coming, there's a date in mind, but I can't say anything more right now," said Cook.

The Sault placed third in an online contest last year that let fan votes route the band's fall North American tour, but bad weather cancelled the final show of the tour.

Since then, the community's spirit appears to have have dropped precipitously. In a recent Sault Star poll asking whether people believe Kiss will perform in the Sault this year, 94 per cent said no.

But the radio station, a longtime sponsor of local shows, is in frequent contact with promoter AEG Live, and "everyone we spoke with at AEG Live assured us it's going to happen, they just don't know when exactly," Cook said.

The band began its European tour Thursday to promote its latest record, Sonic Boom. The tour crosses into North America next month. Several gaps between shows could accommodate a detour to the Sault, including between North Dakota July 24 and Pittsburgh July 29, and Minnesota Sept. 4 and Toronto Sept. 10.

Trevor Zachary, the Essar Centre's concert and events manager, said last month he is holding on to a date in the fall.

MAP SUMMER TOUR
BOSTON MUSIC SPOTLIGHT
Kiss will return to the road this summer for another leg of their "Hottest Show on Earth Tour". The legendary rock band will visit Mansfield's Comcast Center (Boston) on Saturday, August 7. Tickets, which range in price from $20.50 to $125, are on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

The classic rockers released their first studio album in 11 years, Sonic Boom, last October. Kiss' inactivity did not seem to affect their music, as it debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200. Sonic Boom was produced by singer-guitarist Paul Stanley and includes original bassist Gene Simmons with guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer, both of whom have played on and off roles with the band over the years.

The band is currently on their "Sonic Boom Over Europe" tour, which attracted over 90,000 fans to Germany's Rock Am Ring last Thursday night.

The tour also offers VIP ticket options for the KISS Meet & Greet Experience, which features a seat within the first five rows, a chance to meet Kiss's members, and various band paraphernalia.

CLASH MUSIC
Interview by Anna Wilson

How would you spend your last day on Earth? GENE SIMMONS from KISS would gorge on Jaffa Cakes.

Where would you like to wake up?

This is not an answer that makes people in other countries happy and it always sounds a little self-serving... quite honestly? The United States Of America. People are always proud of where they're from. I'm not from America, I'm telling you as an immigrant, that's where I wanna be.

Who would you like to wake up next to?

Myself.

What would there be left to achieve on your last day?

Fascinating question. I've achieved everything I've wanted to. Let me see... I guess in all seriousness, make at least one person's life happier than it was before.

Who do you have at your final dinner?

God, because I have a LOT of questions. If we're all your children what's all this misery - cancer, AIDS... How dare you do that to your children. I wouldn't be heaping praise or anything like that. I was given a brain to think so I'd be asking lots of questions. The first one being, 'Who do you think you are, God?'
