KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer has posted the following message on his web site:"Hello! I want to start out by thanking everyone for the amazing number of e-mails and letters I've been getting as of late from all of you. Your words show that the caring devotion to the 'Hottest Band in the Land' runs deep and I'm proud to be a part of it. "As the Rock The Nation 2004 tour winds through Australia and Japan, I can only say that the response has been overwhelming and true KISS fans are out of their minds! The special theatre shows in Melbourne and Sydney were standouts because of the raw stripped-down approach. Everyone seems to love raw rock & roll. I'd like to do more of these in the future. "We are also playing the same stage where KISS made their Japanese debut in 1977. Three packed night nights at the historic Budokan Hall in Tokyo, it's mind-boggling. "The highly anticipated USA summer tour is going to be awesome. KISS high-octane 2004 style is the best way to describe it. As you probably already know, a whole new approach to the song list is something we've all been waiting for years to see. I'm enjoying playing so many different KISS tunes now that have never seen the light of day on the sacred KISS stage. "Keep being the amazing fans that you are, and remember... It's all for the love of rock & roll!"
