Not much News these days to report on the KISS-front except that they have various difficulties sometimes during the shows (Paul can't fly or Ace shooting rockets straight into the audience...). The Dallas show from April 2, 2000 was confirmed to be a sellout with more than 18.000 people attending. Concerning our website the multimedia pages will be up very soon, they will be absolutely amazing! Also we are in the middle of scanning thousends of the best photos for the photo-gallery.
Dutch KISS Cover-Band "Sweet Pain" will enter the studio on 4th of August to record their second as of yet untitled album. Producer: Arjen Petri & Sweet Pain. The CD will contain the following songs:
* The Oath
* All Hell's Breakin' Loose
* Is That You
* Magic Touch
* Everytime I Look At You
* Larger Than Life
* Room Service
The new issue of Clownwhite magazine will be published a few weeks later than planned. The reason for this delay is the fact, that the publishers will go to see KISS and want to put the reviews in the new issue.
KISS' concert in Minneapolis originally scheduled for May 17th was postponed to May 18th. The band couldn't make it to Minneapolis in time because the plane could not land in Minneapolis due to bad weather and ended up landing in Chicago instead.
