'KISS Rocks Vegas Day' Declared In Las Vegas

Clark County Commission declared today (Friday, November 7) "Kiss Rocks Vegas Day" in honor of KISS's nine-show residency at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The infamous rock group made an over-the-top Maverick Helicopters arrival at the property on Wednesday, November 5 and kicked off the first, sold-out show of the residency that evening.

Throughout the duration of the residency, the resort will offer KISS-inspired menus and specialty cocktails at 35 Steaks + Martinis, Culinary Dropout, Mr. Lucky's Café, Pink Taco and all casino bars; KISS-themed merchandise at John Varvatos and the band's official pop-up shop B Side; and rocker-chic treatments at Reliquary Water Sanctuary, Spa & Salon.

Produced exclusively by AEG Live, "Kiss Rocks Vegas" continues at The Joint November 7–8, 12, 14–15, 19, 22–23. Tickets, starting at $49.50 (plus applicable service fees), are available for purchase at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, online at www.hardrockhotel.com/thejoint, www.axs.com or charge-by-phone at 888.9.AXS.TIX.

Speaking to Las Vegas Weekly, KISS frontman Paul Stanley stated about how the idea for the band's residency came about: "To spend as much time as we do in Vegas and to live as close as we do, the idea of doing a residency and leaving our stage setup, as opposed to breaking it down nightly, was really appealing.

"We just finished 42 cities and played for 600,000 people, but that meant that every night the show got disassembled and moved. There’s something appealing and challenging about building a set that doesn’t have to be moved. You don't have to take into account the practicality of it, being able to be broken down constantly and reassembled. So this was something that we had wanted to do for quite a while; it was just a matter of making sure we found people who were in agreement on how to do it. The Joint was the natural place to do it."
