Coffeehouse Update: Well the big day is here! The Official Grand Opening Party at the KISS Coffeehouse in Myrtle Beach will begin tonight at 8 PM. Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons will be on hand to officially open the store! Paul and Gene are looking forward to meeting the KISS Coffeehouse Contest winners as well as the many members of the KISS Army who have traveled to South Carolina for the opening. KISSONLINE will be on hand throughout the day passing out a special commemorative postcard to the first thousand fans at the opening and we will also be reporting on the opening live throughout the day! Below are the Opening Party details: Paul and Gene will be available to say hello to fans from 8:30 PM until 9:45 PM inside the KISS Coffeehouse. In order to meet as many KISS fans as possible, Paul & Gene will not be signing autographs or posing for photos. However you will be allowed to take photos of them. KISS Coffeehouse will allow fans to begin lining up outside starting at 10am. If you decide to arrive early, bring lots of sunscreen! KISS Coffeehouse will be open all day on the 27th, closing from 4pm-8:30pm to prepare for the Official Grand Opening. For fans that do make it in, please understand that we will have to move the line very quickly as we anticipate large crowds and want as many fans as possible to get inside. Fans that are unable to get in should head to the stage where KISS Army will be playing at 9:45, when Paul & Gene will come onstage to address the crowd. To add to the Grand Opening festivities, KISS tribute band, KISS Army, will be performing on the Celebrity Square Stage at Broadway at the Beach from 8:00- 10:00 p.m., when a KISS- style fireworks display will light up the sky in front of the shop. Myrtle Beach's classic rock station, Wave 104.1, will promote the event and will be on site broadcasting live.
