Kiss. Stadium, Malmo, 6.13

As much as we wanted to see a dignified Sweden rock finale, we never got it from Guns N 'Roses. Less than 24 hours after Axl Rose left his audience with a sense of emptiness in their bodies, many, many people were finally swept into that much-longed-for rock dream when the KISS circus roared in to Malmo Stadium.

The band's intro movie on the big screens already set the bar: a Gene Simmons of Godzilla-size stomping around in a big city is a pretty good metaphor for the band as phenomenon. Subtle they are not, but you can not possibly take your eyes or ears off of them.

Whether it is Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer or Arne Hegerfors and the Dalai Lama who hide behind Catman and Spaceman makeup doesn't interest us -- Kiss is a brand and a lifestyle, where space and content are the same thing. The band delivered a super-choreographed spectacle and it felt as if four superheroes were on the scene.

To be honest, is there anyone who has not fantasized about being Gene Simmons for a day, though for different reasons now than when we were young? As the intro to the beefy "I Love It Loud" played, he lit up in neon green, gurgled blood, the bass roared and he flew up to a platform above the stage. Parents who were smart enough to take their ten year old said that Gene turned him into a lifetime member of the Kiss Army tonight.

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.
