As an acronym, it stands for "Keep It Simple, Stupid."
In the world of Rock and Roll, KISS is a polar opposite.
You can’t compare KISS to any other band, simply because it’s easier to compare bands trying to be like KISS. There’s lots of blood, smoke blazing from guitars, pyrotechnics, oh, and fire breathing and some serious tongue action.
And then there are the costumes. A KISS concert isn’t really a concert, it’s an experience.
They have 24 gold albums, have sold more than 19 million records and more than 100 million worldwide.
As original member Gene Simmons said, “For 35 years, KISS has rocked all over the world to sold-out crowds and set the standard for what a rock show should be. This tour will solidify our place in history for having the loudest, most entertaining and hardest rockin’ show in all of music.”
This would be the same Simmons who’s lived for years with a former Playboy Playmate of the Year, Shannon Tweed. Who had his own reality show with her and their two kids.
KISS has moved beyond being a rock and roll band; they’re basically a corporation.
The band will be bringing their latest North American tour to Tulsa at the BOK Center on Tuesday night.
Doors open at 6 p.m., with the show slated for 7:30 p.m.
Ticket prices are: $128, $78, $49.50, $29.50, and VIP packages are available.
