Kiss To Rock Las Vegas For 9-Show Residency In November


The rumors were true. The biggest band turned rock spectacle in the world is coming to the city of sin for a 9-show run that is sure to go down as a highlight of the year.

Kiss announced this morning that they will be performing a 9-show residency in Las Vegas this November. The show, fittingly titled Kiss Rocks Vegas, will feature the self-proclaimed “hottest band in the land” performing large scale productions over the course of two weeks at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino beginning Nov. 5. Tickets will be $49.50 each.

“Whatever you’re used to with Kiss, this will pump it up that much more,” says guitarist Paul Stanley. “If Kiss is on steroids, this is a double dose.”

Chas Smith, vice president of entertainment for the Vegas Hard Rock, claims he spent more than a year trying to book Kiss. His venue has previously hosted extended stays by Santana, Motley Crue, Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard and Tiësto, but this particular series will be extra special. He told USA Today, “The activation will encompass the entire property for the month they’re out here — from the performances onstage to wrapping the hotel with Kiss stuff to having team members wearing Kiss shirts.”

Kiss are preparing for a bigger show as well. As Paul Stanley explains, “Usually, going into a smaller venue means eliminating things. 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.”

Dates for the run can be viewed below. We’ll bring you more on Kiss Rocks Vegas as soon as additional information can be confirmed.
