Legendary rockers KISS set up residency in Las Vegas in November 2014, taking over The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel And Casino for three weeks and bringing their unique brand of theatrical hard rock to Sin City. The result was a spectacular nine-night stand that didn’t stint on the pyrotechnics – or the hits.
A year and a half later, the global KISS Army can now unite for KISS Rocks Vegas, which arrives at cinemas worldwide for a special one-night-only screening on 25 May. Further enhancing the experience, this unique show will include band interviews and footage that fans will only ever see in the cinema. A select number of venues will also screen the concert in Dolby Atmos, providing a fittingly immersive experience as the sound of the concert travels around the room and envelops the audience.
As KISS rhythm guitarist Paul Stanley acknowledges, “the awesome power” of Dolby Atmos’ surround sound audio will make cinema-goers “feel like you are in Vegas”. Lead guitarist and KISS Rocks Vegas producer Tommy Thayer adds: “We’re all tremendously proud of this production; it captured a truly unique performance. You need to see it in the cinema to get the full-on experience.”
The KISS Rocks Vegas cinematic event caps four decades’ worth of touring for the band, whose 40th-anniversary world tour saw them headline five shows in Japan, while also rallying the KISS Army troops across Australia and North and South America. It also offers a primer for the 2016 KISS Kruise, the sixth such voyage, which will take place between 4 and 9 November on the Norwegian Pearl, sailing from Miami to Cozumel and Grand Cayman. The six-day event will include a host of band activities, plus a recreation of the group’s 1982 Creatures Of The Night tour show.
In the meantime, fans can book tickets for the one-off KISS Rocks Vegas cinema event at www.kissmycinema.com. From the UK to Eastern Europe, the Far East to the Americas, the KISS Army will unite to experience the band’s live show like never before.
