KISS's official web site, KissOnline.com, has been updated with the following message:"Tommy Thayer [KISS guitarist] just made a surprise visit to the Chicago KISS Fan Fest! "The event opened at noon with the announcement that KissOnline would be raffling off a Tommy Thayer-autographed 'Rock the Nation' tour book at 2pm. When the raffle was held, the winner, 12-year-old Brandon Kisereu, came up on stage to get his prize and asked why it was not signed. We told him we'd take care of that — and then the side door opened and Tommy came onto the stage. The crowd went crazy! You could see the look of shock on people's faces — it was quite a moment! "After signing Brandon's tour book, Tommy explained that he was in Chicago for Thanksgiving and wanted to stop by and thank the fans for all of their support! He then spent the next 45 minutes answering all kinds of questions from the crowd. Topics included Eric Carr, BLACK 'N BLUE, a salute to the US troops, the recent KISS trio concert, and of course many KISS questions! One fan told Tommy how much they appreciated him taking time out of visiting with relatives to spend some time with the fans — with that, the crowd applauded again! "Before leaving, Tommy visited with Bruce Kulick backstage and then stopped to sign autographs and take photos for the many KISS fans who figured out which door we were taking him out the building! (KISS fans are smart!!)" Check out photos from the event at this location.
