PAUL STANLEY Comments On Upcoming Australian Solo Tour

KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley has confirmed the details of his Australian solo tour, which is scheduled to take place in April.

Commented Stanley: "The U.S. shows were incredible and reconnected me to the reasons I loved live music growing up. Between all the KISS classics, songs we've never played and songs from my two solo albums, it's an ultimate night that's as good or better than anything else around. I want to continue this sweat-fest as long as I can and my first questions was, 'Can I get to Australia?' Night after night, the fans across the U.S. were blown away. I can't wait."

Paul Stanley's Australian tour dates:

Apr. 11 - Gold Coast - Twin Towns
Apr. 13 - Wollongong - Entertainment Centre
Apr. 14 - Newcastle - Entertainment Centre
Apr. 16 - Sydney - Enmore Theatre
Apr. 20 - Melbourne - Palais Theatre
Apr. 24 - Perth - Burswood Theatre
Apr. 26 - Adelaide - Thebarton Theatre

As was the case on Stanley's recent U.S. tour, the backing band for Paul's Australian trek will be the house band from the CBS-TV show "Rock Star". The group, comprised of Paul Mirkovich (keyboards), Jim McGorman (guitar), Rafael Moreira (lead guitar), Nate Morton (drums) and Sasha Krivstov (bass), appeared on the first season of the show, "Rock Star: INXS", as well as this year's "Rock Star: Supernova".

Paul Stanley's solo concert at the House of Blues in Chicago on November 6 was filmed for possible DVD release, according to a posting on Stanley's web site.

Stanley's new solo album, "Live to Win", came out on October 24 and sold just under 17,000 copies in the United States during its first week of release to land at position No. 53 of The Billboard 200 chart.
