KISS: More Australian Shows Announced

One of the most legendary and influential bands in rock history, KISS will perform concerts in Sydney and Brisbane, Australia in March.

March 18 - Brisbane Entertainment Centre
March 20 - Acer Arena, Sydney

The concerts will follow the band's spectacular performance to close the 2008 Grand Prix in Melbourne on Sunday, March 16.

With 32 albums, more than 90 million record sales and every accolade imaginable bestowed upon them, KISS are still rockin and still staging the most spectacular and entertaining shows ever seen in Australia.

From the time the four larger-than-life figures adorned in shining black leather, metallic studs and sequins take the stage, the next two hours provides the ultimate KISS experience — there's explosions, pillars of flame, fire breathing, blood spewing, rocket launching guitars and all the hits "Shout It Out Loud", "Calling Dr Love", "Rock 'n' Roll All Nite", "I Was Made For Loving You", "Detroit Rock City" etc.

Radio Reality Check will air another "world-famous" "Kiss This" special on Thursday, January 31 at 8:00 p.m. PST / 11:00 p.m. EST. KISS fans can chat live with other fans around the world.

Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported last month that KISS is strongly rumored to be planning a headlining concert May 30 at Stockholm Stadion, an outdoor 30,000-seater arena. Although Swedish promoter EMA Telstar has reportedly reserved the date as an option for KISS to play at the Stadion, the show has **NOT** been confirmed as yet, however, and should be treated as a rumor only.

As previously reported, KISS will play Wellington's Westpac Stadium in New Zealand in March as part of a giant two-day rock festival.

KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley was forced to pull out of the band's July 27, 2007 show in San Jacinto, California, about 90 miles (145 km) east of Los Angeles when his heart started beating at more than twice the normal level.

Stanley wrote on his web site that he was advised performing would be risky, and the show went on without him. Fellow principal Gene Simmons told fans the group would play as a trio, and turned the show into a tribute to his ailing bandmate.
