U.K. FAN SHARES KRUISE MEMORIES
Daniel Hill over at fan site KISSinUK.com wrote an amazingly detailed travelogue of his time spent on the inaugural KISS Kruise in 2011, complete with hundreds of photos from his trip! If you've been wondering what it's really like to take a vacation with KISS, Daniel's trip report will leave you ready to snap up one of the last remaining cabins on KISS Kruise 2012! Here are a few excerpts:
     ____________________________________

"Cheers started to roar from the right of me as Gene, Paul, Eric and Tommy made their way to the stage, all wearing shades to block out the beautiful Miami sun. The four casually dressed members of KISS acknowledged the crowd for a moment or two before taking up positions to commence their acoustic set. With chants from the crowd getting louder, the band started the show with a set list to make any fan; old or new, speechless..."

"As the band exited the stage, I was handed a drumstick by Eric then shook hands with Gene, Paul and Tommy. The ‘KISS Around The World’ event was next. A large map was situated on the wall with ‘Icons’ stickers available to place onto the country where you live. I think it was a total of 33 countries being represented on the ship. After a quick change of clothes, Stu and I headed for the miniature golf course at the very top of the ship to watch the ‘Putt Putt With Tommy Thayer’. Fans were able to compete in a knockout round before the five finalists played a full game of miniature golf against Tommy..."

"About an hour later, Paul (an old school friend of Stu) came back to the table after just bumping into Paul Stanley. He was gutted to not have had his camera and we were too because we had missed it. However, within 2 minutes, I saw Michael Frances and Paul Stanley walking across the top deck. Me, Stu and Paul headed up there in hope of having our photo taken with our Idol, plus a couple of signatures. Luckily, our friend Karl was just on his way back to the table and spotted us on the upper level speaking with Paul and came up too. Stanley gratefully signed the items he was given and posed for pictures with us and chatted with the small group of fans that were up there..."

CONAN O' BRIEN GETS ED
KISSONLINE LETTERS
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

I was watching Conan on TBS, and when they come back from commercial breaks, they often show clips or artwork relating to Conan. There was this image of Conan in KISS Makeup in one of those art pieces in the episode from February 15th, 2012. I love KISS and Conan, and I was excited to see it.

TO ROCK MASSIVE UK FESTIVAL!
KISSONLINE.com
KISS will headline the opening night of SONISPHERE KNEBWORTH 2012, England's annual massive music festival! The July 6th show will be KISS' only European show this year.

Buy tickets in the KISS Army ticket pre-sale now!

Shooting rockets. Blood spitting. Face Paint. Shiny Boots and utterly jaw dropping triumphant live shows: SONISPHERE is proud to announce KISS as Friday's headliner. With a reputation for being perhaps the most flamboyant and entertaining band on the planet, the American Kings will bring their stage extravaganza to SONISPHERE as their only European performance of 2012. While many bands have been chasing the eye liner shock horror dollar and have come and gone without changing the face of music as we know it, KISS have gone from strength to strength garnering praise, success and too many accolades to mention throughout the years, selling over 100 million albums worldwide and counting as the band is poised to unleash new album 'Monster' in June 2012. Says the band:

“You wanted the best, you got the best, the hottest band in the world, KISS”.

SONISPHERE festival is KISS’ invitation to have the best time of your life with long lost friends such as the anthemic 'Rock N Roll All Night', the jubilant singalong 'I Was Made For Lovin' You' and the rallying cry of 'God Gave Rock N Roll to You'. We would ask you to lock up your daughters, girlfriends and wives, but with Gene Simmons in town, it's pretty clear there's no stopping them. And if you can't fight them, join them at their only European show of 2012.

SONISPHERE KNEBWORTH takes place July 6th - 8th at KNEBWORTH HOUSE. The three-day festival also includes performances from Queen, Faith No More, Evanescence, Marilyn Manson, Incubus, and many more.

Public tickets will be available at www.sonispherefestivals.com at 9am on Thursday, February 23.

TALENT SHOW SEALED WITH A !
KISSONLINE LETTERS
Last night, my 9 year old son Ashton, was in his elementary school talent show. He did a drum solo. Being that he is a HUGE KISS fan, we pulled out all the stops. He entered the stage on a moving drum riser; smoke billowing out from the sides, blinking lights, and of course, in true KISS fashion, his name lit up in the “KISS” font behind him.

Being that this is “elementary school” – it blew people away. He was the hit of the night as you can hear from the applause.

Just thought you may enjoy seeing the influence KISS has on so many, including our 9 year old son!
