KISS members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons were interviewed this past Friday, May 29 on the "Mark and Brian" show on the Los Angeles radio station KLOS 95.5. Listen to the chat in three parts below.KISS made headlines last month when it announced its U.S. and Canadian tour will be the world's first to put fans in charge of where a tour is routed. This is destined to be the most explosive show of the year; and by partnering with web site Eventful, fans will "Demand" exactly where KISS and will perform in (top-voted) North American markets beginning this September. KISS just wrapped up an astonishing trek through South America, where fans hailed the band at sold-out stadium shows across the continent. From the Hipodroma la Rinconada in Caracas, Venezuela to the River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina, KISS treated fans to a set of some of rock's greatest hits, including "Rock and Roll All Nite", "Detroit Rock City", "God Gave Rock & Roll to You" and "Shout It Out Loud", and more. The group's 2009 South American tour also included sold-out dates in Santiago, Chile; Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Brazil; Bogota, Columbia and Lima, Peru. An official video announcement by the band's Paul Stanley, Eric Singer, Tommy Thayer and Gene Simmons (see video at KissOnline.com), shot in front of a capacity crowd in Santiago, kicked off this first-ever tour promotion. With tens of thousands of their Chilean counterparts cheering in the background, North American fans were astonished to learn that they were being put in charge of routing their favorite band's upcoming tour. KISS, which has garnered more than 30 gold and platinum records and sold in excess of 90 million albums worldwide, is currently recording its first new studio album in 11 years. The band will release exciting news about the album, which is being produced by Paul Stanley, at KissOnline.com in June. Part 1:
