We just got word that KISS are going to be playing the Sommet on October 28. We can’t tell you how many times we’ve listened to Destroyer in our lives, probably a million times, but we’ve never seen them. Well, one of us saw them along time ago [it was the first show he’d ever been to, lucky] And whenever people ask us: If you could see any band in concert right now, who would it be? We always say “KISS!” That’s the truth. We heard about them coming to town a while ago but couldn’t confirm it until now. They’ll be touring in support of their new album Sonic Boom [hits WalMart & Sam’s Club Oct. 6] and tickets go on sale September 19 through Ticketmaster. Apparently the new album is a 3-Disc deal including the new album, a CD of re-recorded hits, and a DVD. Bang for your buck? Duh. Check out one of our favorite KISS/Ace Frehley tracks below.
Ace was the one responsible for getting the “SS” in “KISS” to resemble the “SS” of the SS Army. Yeesh. There’s a good radio webcast our friends over at StreetCarnage did that you can listen to here.
