Legendary Rock n’ Roll God Gene Simmons has today announced he will be returning to Australia with his band to treat the Australian KISS Army to a special run of concerts in February 2018, and Blank has a double pass to give away to a loyal reader.
Having sold more than 100 million albums worldwide with the iconic shock-rockers KISS, Gene Simmons has written and performed some of the most well known anthems in the history of music. His tongue wagging onstage antics and distinguishable makeup often overshadow his grossly underrated musicianship, but it is assured that the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee deserves all the accolades he has received throughout his illustrious career. He can’t wait to return to Australia and play some cosier venues.
“Doing these smaller concert halls, which hold a thousand to three thousand people, means they get filled up by real diehard fans. They don’t want to hear the same-old, same-old. They want to hear nuggets, as they say. It’s a hoot for me because I’ve never really had a chance to do this stuff live. It’s been a lot of fun.”
With an ever-changing set list from night to night, die-hard fans are in for an absolute treat of unexpected Gene Simmons & KISS gems, the classic hit songs we all know and love & possibly even an influential cover or two for good measure. Focusing heavily on the music and stripping away the stage show for a rare performance, fans have the opportunity to gain a new appreciation for Gene’s song-writing, personality and outstanding performance characteristics whilst hearing songs that have only ever been heard on record.
Tickets for Gene Simmons and his band’s national tour will be on sale Wednesday 25 October at midday. For ticketing information, please head to ticketmaster.com.au for the Brisbane show at The Tivoli on 6 February. The ticket giveaway will run until Thursday 30 November on Blank’s Facebook page.
