KISS TOUR DELAYED

The European Kiss tour has been delayed. It seems that the band was not able to regulate the necessary affairs for the preparation of the forthcoming tour in time. Meanwhile the promoters should have been informed as well. It is said, that the Russian shows are scheduled for some time in October at the moment. They should make the start of the tour, if everything works out fine. A European tour could then be expected in October/November at the earliest.

KISS TOUR DELAYED

After two months of waiting for the confirmation, the European Tour is now on hold. At this time there is no official reason given. This leaves speculations open. It is no secret, that it was very hard for promoters to get appropriate venues booked for this tour. Most venues for the time scheduled were already booked and in some cities they were forced to book unusual places. The Tour was scheduled to start in Scandinavia late August, go through most European countries and end up with a couple of shows in England early October. It is expected the Tour will be properly rescheduled.

(from Phil)
Hi Kiss Family/Army!  Ace Frehley was inducted into the bronx hall of fame on Sunday it was a grand day, and Ace looked so happy and thirlled to be there along with others that made it big that were from the bronx as well . I got there a little late but he was just finished from being inside the court house brunch Ace was with his new girlfriend and his publicist Carol Kaye , John Ostrosky from MTV and another guy didn't get his name, but Ace came out side jumped atop the wall and all this time. I was video taping this cause, I am  producing a Kiss special for SI cable to be aired, so, I gathering up Kiss footage from various events,  so Ace was handed a hotdog and started to eat since, I didn't know he was going to eat. I was still taping this so Ace being Ace was very cool about it didn't really mind only when he finished he waved so I stop filming but  then it came time for the unvailing of the street sign so, I grabed my video camera and begain shooting the induction. He was inducted by the bourgh President from the bronx he joked a little about he had forgot the Kiss makeup and then Ace joked about the name on the sign could of been bigger everyone laughed but Ace was very honored
and thanked everyone for showing up to be a part of his day in the sun. Then he left on a car tram then came back on a float 25 min later back from parade route it was a grand day.  I wanted a autograph but said to myself this day's Ace's day and I didn't want to hound him cause so many people were crowding him alot with  that, I feel is not right maybe next time, if I ever get to meet up with him one day. I felt lucky enough to be there and to be a part of Ace's induction. I took still pictures also  but I have to get them devolped still but, I will post on my Yahoo Kiss club very soon check it out please join .  Yahoo!

NEWS FROM ALICE COOPER CONCERT IN PARIS (MAY 13)
(from Richard Beck)
My brother Bertrand & Tof have assisted to this concert.They really enjoyed it. Olympia was full (2000 people), Alice's band gave them a great show. The concert began with several Brutal planet album's songs. Eric was fantastic and enjoyed his double kick of his drum set. He performed an incredible solo by kicking mediums, loud drums and cymbals very quickly. He has a very good style.
The show took place during 1h45min, it was a fabulous concert and Eric was almost perfect. At the end, Alice started to sing R'n'r all nite to wish Eric happy birthday.

ERIC SINGER IN DENMARK
(from Jan Laursen)
On May 10th  the tour Monsters Of The Millennium reached K. B. Hallen in good old Copenhagen, and the attending rockfans were treated to three bands in good form: Ratt (with Jon Corabi from Union), DIO (who played a fantastic set), and off course the highlight of the evening: Alice Cooper. Behind Alice's drums was KISS' Eric Singer, and there were a great deal of KISS fans present, who cheared so much over Eric, that Alice presented him as "The man with his own fanclub here tonight!!". Eric played a great, long drumsolo (without the flaming drumstick trick, though!!).
But it was a fantastic evening in K. B. Hallen...
