KISS’ Paul Stanley said, “See us on the big screen with the fellow members of the KISS army. Feel like you are in Vegas and don’t be shy – ‘Shout it out loud!’”
Gene Simmons of KISS added, “Join us for a ‘Crazy Crazy Night’ at your cinema!”
Tommy Thayer of KISS stated, “We are all tremendously proud of this production; it captures a truly unique performance. You need to see it in a cinema to get the full-on experience.”
KISS’ Eric Singer concludes, “We rocked The Joint at Hard Rock in Las Vegas. You get up close and personal with KISS. You’re going to LOVE IT.”
Fathom Events CEO John Rubey stated, “If ever there was a band made to be presented larger-than-life and up on the big screen, it’s KISS.”
As America’s No. 1 Gold Record Award-winning group of all time, KISS is easily one of rock’s most influential bands. Famed for their iconic face paint and stage attire, KISS was formed in New York City in 1973 by Stanley (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Simmons (vocals, bass guitar). Their sensational live performances feature fire breathing, blood-spitting, smoking guitars, shooting rockets, levitating drum kits, and pyrotechnics to spare. Thayer (lead guitar, vocals), who is also producer of “KISS Rocks Vegas,” and Singer (drums, percussion, vocals) round out the band’s powerful line-up.
