Artist: KISS
Title: “KISS Rocks Vegas” Theatrical Screening
Label: Fathom Events/Eagle Vision
Date: 5/25/2016
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 4.5/5

Back in 2014, the legendary KISS hosted a nine date residency at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino at their event space known as “The Joint”. It was a great idea because so many other bands were doing these kind of multi-show events in the recent years but let’s face it, there is only one KISS and that made this residency something a whole lot bigger in terms of the entertainment value that the fans who attended were going to get. Now this kind of history making event is awesome for sure but also is not something that everyone can easily get to and afford since it requires much more than your ticket price. Out of town fans need to contend with travel and lodging costs along with food and drink and remember this is Vegas which is a pricy place to raise that Rock and Roll hell. Fortunately, the Hottest Band In The World decided to capture the residency on video for a special big screen showing, a PPV event and an eventual home video release on DVD and Blu-ray. Thanks to the folks at Fathom Events, NYC was going to get a chance to enjoy the film for the price of a movie ticket and would be showing this at the AMC Empire 25 in Times Square. Our theatre was way up on the fifth floor of the place so it came with a bonus escalator ride with some precarious heights as well.

The Details: KISS is one of my very favorite bands here at the PiercingMetal Command HQ and if this is news to you then you have not been paying the proper attention to the writings. Last year, KISS did a first-ever residency in Las Vegas and highlights from these epic performances have been culled together for a film entitled “KISS Rocks Vegas”. The historic residency will be shown on the big screens at select locations for one-night only thanks to the folks at Fathom Events and even better to announce is that they want a whole bunch of PiercingMetal readers at the screening as well. Read more below on how to participate.

When and Where: Wednesday, May 25th 7:00pm at AMC Empire 25 Theatre (234 West 42nd Street NYC)

To Participate: KISS has remained one of the most exciting live shows for over forty years now and over the course of my own live concert adventures I think I have seen them about 25 times. Based on some of the diehards that I know, this is not even close to their concert attendances. This contest is the first ever movie ticket giveaway on PiercingMetal and I want it to be a special one. With this in mind please just give me three things about the band KISS that you love the most. It can span your favorite albums, songs, meet and greets or past concert experiences. Make this good reading because the stuff remains on the website and can likely inspire new fans as well to check them out and encourage even more giveaways of this nature. Now since there are likely newbies in the mix that want to be a part of the fun, those people can get me three solid reasons why they must be at the show. I will stress that if you are going to moan and groan about the band in today’s dynamic or want to chastise any of the members you should not even enter this giveaway because I will NOT be approving those comments. Sorry this one is all about having a good time in an awesome theater. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. Please be aware that this is for a “single ticket only” and no plus one requests will be honored. Sorry.
