On Wednesday May 25, fans of the rock group KISS will be able to see the band as they have never seen them before. For one night only, “KISS Rocks Las Vegas” will hit cinemas around the globe.

Viewers can witness their epic nine-show run that took place at The Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas on the big screen. During this event, they’ll also be able to see never-before-seen footage and exclusive interviews with the band.

From this blistering live show, fans can expect sky high flames, ear-bursting volume and a few drops of blood. Includes exclusive interviews with band and footage you will only see in the cinema.

As America’s No. 1 Gold Record Award winning group of all time, and that’s in every category, KISS can easily be named one of rock’s most influential bands.

Famed for their iconic face paint and stage attire, KISS was formed in New York City in 1973 by Paul Stanley (Vocals, Rhythm guitar) and Gene Simmons (Vocals, Bass guitar). Their sensational live performances feature fire breathing, blood-spitting, smoking guitars, shooting rockets, levitating drum kits, and pyrotechnics to spare. Tommy Thayer (Lead guitar, Vocals) and Eric Singer (Drums, Percussion, Vocals) round out the band’s powerful lineup.  Thayer is also producer of “KISS Rocks Vegas.”

The band’s global sales exceed 100 million records, making them one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time. The Rock N Roll Hall of Famers have released 44 albums. Honored by their peers, KISS received the illustrious ASCAP Founders Award in 2015.

More than 40 years of record-breaking global tours have brought KISS to their fans. They kicked off their recent world tour with 5 headlining shows in Japan and a #1 single in 2015 “Samurai Son” with pop group, Momoiro Clover Z.  Their 40th Anniversary World tour also rocked North & South America and Australia.  Annually the “KISS Army” becomes the “KISS Navy” as fans from across the globe board the KISS Kruise (2016 year will mark their 6th voyage).

KISS teamed up with Warner Brothers in 2015 to create the original movie “ScoobyDoo and KISS: Rock And Roll Mystery.” Other high-profile appearances have included the Super Bowl, the Winter Olympics, Rockin’ The Corps concert, a FOX alliance with KISS appearing in multiple episodes of “Family Guy,” plus two special guest performances on “American Idol” finales.

KISS has been featured in major advertising and marketing campaigns for John Varvatos, Google Play, Hello Kitty—even appearing in a Dr. Pepper Super Bowl commercial and advertising campaign in support of their Hottest Show On Earth tour. This year represents the 3rd season of the LA KISS Arena Football League team bringing professional football back to Los Angeles.  KISS founding band members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons have also entered the culinary world by opening a string of eateries aptly named Rock & Brews.

KISS is dedicated to numerous Veterans Organizations including The Wounded Warriors Project, The USO, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce “Hire A Hero” program, The Legacy Organization in Australia, Help For Heroes United Kingdom and The Dr. Pepper Snapple Groups Wounded Warriors Support Foundations.
