PAUL STANLEY PREVIEWS UPCOMING TOUR
'A no-fly zone over the amphitheaters'

Paul Stanley knows just what fans expect from a Kiss concert, after decades of explosions and ear-splitting rock. That’s why they’ll be upping the ante on an upcoming tour with Motley Crue.

“We’re not known for the subtlety — and this time we are pulling out all of the stops,” Stanley said today. “I say it’ll probably be a no-fly zone over the amphitheaters we are playing. When you come to see us, you leave pummeled and that’s the way it should be. You want bad news, you can listen to CNN. But everybody needs a break, so we are giving you a one night vacation in the town of your choice.”

Stanley also talked about the multi-generational nature of their crowds these days, as older fans bring their children — and even grandchildren — to take in the Kiss experience. As for the lasting appeal of a band that first rose to fame in the mid-1970s, Stanley says it’s the same as it ever was.

“I think we sing about universal truths: We sing about things that are timeless. We sing about celebrating life. We sing about freedom — and in these time of economic turmoil, we give you a bang for the buck. When you come to see us, you know you are going to see something spectacular, and this show will be no exception.”

Kiss’ new 40-date North American tour with Motley Crue kicks off in Bristow, Va., on July 20, with each band playing a 90-minute set. Announced tour dates are below. This is the first time that Kiss and Motley Crue, who boast combined album sales of almost 200 million, will share a stage since 1982.

And for all of the fun they have, Kiss also gives back: A dollar from every ticket is donated to the Wounded Warrior Care project, “an organization that rehabilitates and helps veterans get back into society after serving overseas,” Stanley said.

& FAMILY GUY IN ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY!
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
Entertainment tie-ins were among the hottest commodities at last week's Licensing Expo 2012 in Las Vegas. Seventies rock stalwarts KISS (who have previously put their name on products ranging from condoms to caskets) will launch a line of merchandise inspired by their guests appearances on the animated TV series Family Guy. "Everything will feature Family Guy characters in KISS make-up," Jeffrey Godsick, president of Fox Consumer Products, says of the forthcoming wares, which will include apparel, collectible figures, and even fine art. "That's good for a collector's market--real, core fan base."

HMV Forum Wednesday 4th July 2012

It's hotter than hell this one. It's the hottest ticket in town this summer. Period. When Sonisphere Festival was cancelled due to all manner of problems, Kiss decided to box clever, and announced a charity show at the intimate HMV Forum in North London on wait for it, 4th July. Tickets went in 90 seconds although in fact no tickets were ever sent out. Get to the venue with photo id and the credit card used for your booking, and in you go. No id, no admission. All the £50 a head ticket money went to the excellent Help for Heroes charity www.helpforheroes.org.uk/ .

Fans were paying nine times the face value to get their hands on these little beauties on the black market, although it was only a couple of years since they last came to these shores. Plainly the prospect of such a small show was just too much of a temptation for the Kiss Army. The joy of living in London means we are lucky and often get these cosy club type shows and this followed hot on the heels of Night Ranger and Megadeth.

Doors opened half an hour late at 7.30pm and the queue was almost wrapped around the Forum by this time. All manner of creatures were on display - some spent hours on copying the make up of their idols, some obviously attempted it with the assistance of very strong lager. It was reassuring to see that at least one of the KISS Army managed to get their Paul Stanley star on the wrong eye (some things never change). Kiss fans are a truly special breed; one chap in the queue said he was getting married in the Kiss Chapel in Las Vegas next year - if only he knew what he was getting himself into! HARDCORE this lot, and some travelled from across Europe for this one. An hour later and we were all settled inside for what turned out to be a special special night.

Down came the KISS curtain to reveal an enormous stage set crammed onto the tiny Forum stage. Banks upon banks of speakers, with Singer's drum riser placed up high in the centre below the iconic KISS logo in lights; it looked superb. Detriot Rock City opened things up in glorious fashion, with enough pyrotechnics for an olympic opening ceremony. The place went nuts, with Simmons, Stanley and co strutting their stuff in full costume and make up, and loving it.

FAMILY MAKES PILGRIMAGE TO CADILLAC HIGH
KISSONLINE LETTERS
With recent talk about a possible movie on KISS' visit to Cadillac High School my kids were curious about the story of the visit so we went on a LONG trip to Cadillac Michigan. The kids thought it was cool when they stood in the middle of the football field where KISS posed for so many pictures on that day. We also stood in the gymnasium where KISS performed and had our pictures taken next to the KISS plaque that is displayed in the hallway of the school. We had a great trip & the kids will never forget it.

Jason E. DeLong & Family
