KISS rumoured to do another Las Vegas residency in January 2021
KISS are in the midst of their End of The Road World Tour and it will apparently include another Las Vegas residency.
Vital Vegas, who describes itself as “your essential source for Las Vegas news, rumors, tips and WTF”, tweeted the following earlier today:
“Look for another Kiss residency in Vegas, this time at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood, inside skinny is Jan. 2021. Believe the last stint was nine shows at Hard Rock in 2014.”
Sleaze Roxx was there for opening night of KISS‘ Las Vegas residency at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino back on November 5, 2014 and stated in its concert review:
“Given that The Joint’s venue is smaller than what KISS is accustomed to, the band’s giant “spider” of lights was missing. In addition there were some modifications to some of the usual acrobatics that [Gene] Simmons and [Paul] Stanley would regale the audience with. Rather than being hoisted above the rafters after his blood spitting bass solo, Simmons was simply lifted about half the height onto a platform near the venue’s ceiling. The platform then moved forward for the entire audience to get a good glimpse of The Demon singing his trademark song “God Of Thunder”.
For over ten years, Stanley has flown over the audience to play the classic “Love Gun”, but this time he “flew” onto a side platform to the right of the stage — which happened to be where our seats were located — before “flying” across the audience to a podium to the left of the stage where he played the intro to “Black Diamond”. I thought that the cheesiest moment in KISS‘ set was when Stanley asked the audience to scream his name loud enough to top the volume meters that appeared in lighted format on both sides of the stage so that he would be invited to join (“fly” over) the crowd. I was quite surprised that after asking me what Stanley‘s name was, my wife fully participated for the first time of the night by screaming “Paul” when cued at the top of her lungs! That is really the beauty of KISS — what I might, as a long-time fan, find cheesy was what really engaged a new fan such as my wife.”
