TO ROCK CANADA DAY
FT. MCMURRAY TODAY
Story and photo by Carol Christian

Legendary rock group KISS will be centre stage July 2 as the closing headliner of the three-day Canada Rocks Canada Day celebrations.

And Fort McMurray is the only Alberta stop on the band's summer tour.

Events Wood Buffalo and MacDonald Island Park — the venue for all the concerts and festivities — unveiled all the details of the headlining events Tuesday.

Some 10,000 tickets will be sold for KISS, ranging in price from $99 for general admission to $250 each for VIP tickets. Box office opens noon May 6.

"We expect those tickets to go very, very fast," predicted EWB executive director Claude Giroux, decked out in his finest Gene Simmons leather.

"MacDonald Island Park and Events Wood Buffalo teaming together with the entire community to present the biggest show on earth right here in Fort McMurray," he raved.

Events Wood Buffalo has been around now for a couple of years, mused Giroux explaining how the special events agency was able to contract such a band as KISS.

"I've spent a lot of time on the phone talking to a lot to agents about a lot of different shows and we knew this year we really wanted to bring a big, big show, a big A-list type show up to the community and this one just kind of came together for us."

While the location on MacIsland will be the same as last year's Barenaked Ladies show, the set-up will be very different because the stage is almost three times as large.

For all concert tickets call 780-791-0070 or visit www.eventswoodbuffalo.com.

A live DJ will rock the raucous house with continuous KISS music, trivia, contests, and prizes. A gift shop will offer unique KISS and Monster souvenirs.

CHRISTOPHER "CRITTER" SMITH RIP
KISSONLINE.com
We are sorry to announce that our friend Christopher "Critter" Smith lost his battle with leukemia and passed away last Thursday. Critter was just 13 years old.

Many members of the KISS Army have inquired about Critter since we first wrote about him on KISSOnline back in 2009, the same year he met the band in Milwaukee. We thank all of you who took the time to write to him, or to say hello in person at the INDY KISS Expo last year. Critter's family told us that it meant the world to him to be associated with KISS and the fans. Critter was a great kid, and we are lucky to have known him!

Share your memories, express your condolences and add photos in the Guest Book for Christopher J. "Critter" Smith at the link below.
