New Zealand - are you ready?

Ready for one of the greatest bands in rock’n’roll history returning to New Zealand after seven years?

Ready for a stage production called ‘The Spider’, moved by 38 computer controlled winches, featuring 220 automated lights, weighing in at 43,000 kgs, incorporating 900 pieces of pyrotechnics and powered by 400,000 watts of sound?

Add in showmanship that continues to thrill audiences around the world, some of the best damn rock anthems in music history and there’s only one band we can be talking about....... KISS!

A KISS concert is like no other, and with tickets starting from just $109, it’s an extravaganza that everyone needs to experience! Get your face paint ready, New Zealand, because Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer are on their way here in October as part of their 40th Anniversary world tour performing here for one night only. KISS last played in Wellington, New Zealand in 2008 so it’s the news the rabid KISS army fans have been waiting for!

Gene Simmons said; "We are so very excited to be visiting again with our fans in New Zealand. We feel a special kinship to the Kiwi's, the culture, the food and the people. But don't kid yourself, we're coming to you to shake the heavens. You will see the greatest show on Earth.”

With countless timeless hits like ‘Rock’n’Roll All Nite’, ‘I Was Made For Loving You’, ‘Detroit Rock City’, ‘Love Gun’, ‘Shout It Out Loud’, ‘Lick It Up’ and ‘God Gave Rock’n’Roll To You’, the KISS legacy continues to grow, generation after generation. KISS is celebrating two major milestones, their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April of 2014, as well as the band’s 40th Anniversary. KISS 40, a new album celebrating 40 years of Rock ‘N Roll is available now.

Special guests are The Dead Daisies, a powerful musical collective created by a rotating line-up that features some of the world’s best rock musicians. This tour features Richard Fortus (Guns N' Roses, The Psychedelic Furs), Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, RATT), Dizzy Reed (Guns N' Roses, Hookers & Blow), David Lowy (MINK, Red Phoenix) and Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol). The band supported KISS on US dates last year and will also join them for the European tour in June. The Dead Daisies are currently recording their second studio album in Australia to be released in June 2015.
