Kiss Rocks Vegas Hard Rock Announcement Poster

After negotiations that lasted for more than a year, The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas has announced that they will be hosting the first-ever Vegas residency by legendary showmen KISS. The Joint, is a 3200-seat venue on the grounds of the Hotel where the band will stage their over-the-top production.

“Usually, going into a smaller venue means eliminating things,” KISS front man Paul Stanley said in a statement released today. “The great thing about going into The Joint, it gives us the opportunity to add. Much in the same way as a Broadway show, when you have a permanent installation, you’re not breaking down every night to travel. So we can do things we wouldn’t normally do.”

You wanted the best, and you got the best…
…but this ain’t it.

If you’re an adult, KISS Kids is terrible. If you’re under the age of 7, KISS Kids is ok. The End.

If I could leave the review at just that, I would. But I won’t. Being a KISS fan, upon hearing that KISS Kids was going to be a comic book series – an announcement made on April Fool’s Day – I honestly thought it was just a gag, a joke, a laugh. I played along with the joke, and we even posted another KISS-related April Fool’s post that day, too.

But then I found out IDW and Gene Simmons were sincere about it. I couldn’t believe it. This is perhaps the worst KISS idea since those coffins, I thought. And I was right.

Young children will probably dig it, especially kids of fans who have been bitten by the KISS bug… but older readers will find this experience tedious. While the art is fun to look at, KISS Kids, as a concept, would work much better as a television cartoon series than a comic book.

Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley To Leave KISS - Band To Continue As KISS II

Hard rock and heavy metal veterans KISS announced today, April 1, 2013, that founding members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are leaving the band and going into retirement at the end of this year, while the band will go on as KISS II, a lineup featuring NO original members, beginning in 2014.

Before Simmons and Stanley, who formed the group in New York City 40 years ago, can officially begin their quiet rock and roll-free nights and party-less days, they must fulfill their current record company contract for one more album. Therefore, the long-time musical partners have agreed to finally do the sequel to The Elder with Bob Ezrin, stating that the original 1981 album now has a cult following, and they are thinking “long-term” for the fans. The sequel will be called The Elder Reloaded.
