Rock ‘n’ roll legends KISS celebrate 40 years as music icons with their first-ever residency, KISS Rocks Vegas, at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas starting Wednesday, Nov. 5 through Sunday, Nov. 23. Show time is 8 p.m.
“What happens in Vegas will not stay in Vegas, not if we have anything to do with it. We intend to blow the roof off the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino,” said Gene Simmons, founding member of KISS.
Four decades after beginning its exemplary journey as one of the leading rock ‘n’ roll bands in the world, KISS continues to make waves with one of the loudest, most over-the-top, non-stop parties at The Joint. Designed exclusively for The Joint in partnership with AEG Live, the chart-topping band will unleash its signature elaborate set designs, jam-packed set list, intense pyrotechnics and much more for nine of the biggest shows in KISS performance history.
With 28 U.S. gold albums as well as 40 million U.S. album sales and 100 million in world sales, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley together with longtime members guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer continue to grow their legacy, year after year. Along with an incredible recording career, KISS received a long-overdue induction into The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in April 2014. In addition, KISS’ new two-disc anthology, KISS 40, was released this past May. KISS 40 features one track from each of the band’s studio and live albums as well as tracks from each of the original band member’s 1978 solo albums and compilation cuts.
“KISS Army, get ready! America’s most iconic band is coming to America’s most exciting city. Rock and Rock Hall of Famers KISS are bringing their show to Las Vegas for their first-ever residency. For 40 years, KISS has been putting on some of the most exciting shows in music and we finally got them where they should be – Las Vegas – at The Joint. We couldn’t be more excited to see what they’re gearing up for!” exclaimed Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking for AEG Live Las Vegas.
