On these pages you can read everything about all Tours Kiss have done from 1973/74 until 2001: what happened at these shows, which special effects they had, which songs they played and so on. For each Tour you will find the appropriate photos. Many thanks to Jan Laursen. Click here to see the new pages about the KISS TOURS.

KISS BOX SET INFOS
(from KissinUK)
boxset1s.jpg (5290 Byte)It appears that the box set may have been put back a month until December, however I have received this first picture of it, whether the final release will look like this isn't known. This was featured in a Hilton Honors catalogue in the USA, the price quoted on the advert was $69.98 + postage, although as there are now 5 cd's instead of 4 the price will probably go up. Thanks to Bruzman for the info. Click here to view the full advert

GENESIMMONS.COM
(from John)
I noticed that you had a news item dated 27.4.2000 regarding a fan (that would be me) who registered GeneSimmons.com. Well, the domain had actually been transferred to Gene's company in October 1999 and was continued as a fan site. Gene is going to be involved in the site starting this week or next week and it will be his official site.

RARE LIVE SHOTS FROM MARCH 26, 1974!
Acelive3outdoors1974.jpg (10686 Byte)These pictures are rare, they were taken at one of the first ever KISS concerts on March 26, 1974 in Canada. If you take a look at the tourdates, this show is listed as the second show of the first tour, not considering the local New York Gigs they played before the first album came out. All pictures were taken by rock photographer Bill Parsons in St.Louis Mo. when the Rock Station KSHE held a Kite fly contest in Forest Park. The show was free, and KISS played their 1st album.

These pictures are rare and Bill Parsons would like to keep them that way. All  his photography of KISS is not to be sold. He kindly approved to put them online here on KISS NEWS. Click here to see those awesome shots.

GENE UPDATE ON BOX SET
(from http://kiss.animalize.com/)
Last Thursday, KISS Kollector Fanclub received another message from Gene: a questionnaire in which he updates us all on such topics as the forthcoming box set, Ace Frehley, the KISS Farewell Tour and more. In regards to the box set, Gene states there will be 100 songs - so, in fact there's indeed gonna be five discs now instead of the four discs as originally announced by the record company last month. Gene: "New songs, original demos and a great design - We didn't like the record company's idea, so we did it ourselves." Gene also shares his feelings on Ace Frehley and has some news on the Farewell Tour and the final KISS gig... to find out what he said on all
these topics, please surf to
