KISS Concerts 2015
KISS is the infamous, legendary Rock N Roll band that started in the 70’s and is celebrating their 40th Anniversary World Tour this year. Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer make up the awesome sound for this World Tour. If you’ve never seen KISS you should try and make their show as it is one you’ll never forget.
KISS recorded their first album, KISS, in 1973 and started touring. The original KISS members were Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley, Paul Stanley and Peter Chriss. By 1974, their outrageous outfits and fire-breathing stunts on stage were taking notice.
Gene Simmons (bass) had his face painted as a Demon, Paul Stanley (rhythm guitar) as a Starchild with a huge star painted around his eye, Space Ace was Ace Frehley (lead guitar) and Peter Chriss (drummer) was painted like a cat for his rough childhood and having nine lives.
KISS continued to put out albums and perform live and by 1976, the world was anticipating the KISS concert experience; fire-breathing acts, drums levitating, shooting rockets, never before seen light show.
KISS took the stage and blew everyone away. They performed at Madison Square Garden, New York, to a sold out show in 1977 and had the KISS comic book released by Marvel Studios. 1977 was a great year for the band as they broke record audiences made by the Beatles all over the world.
Peter Chriss, drummer, leaves the band in 2001 and Eric Singer steps in. In 2002, Ace Frehley refuses to perform in Jamaica and quits the band, Tommy Thayer takes over as lead guitarist.
The KISS band has had its’ troubles through the years but the members have always had the fans in their best interests. KISS has the largest and loyal fan base in the history of Rock-N-Roll. After their World Tour they are Hosting The KISS Kruise on the beautiful Norwegian ship Pearl for their fans. It will sail on October 30 from Miami, FL to Ochos Rios, Jamaica. Thanks KISS.
