Rock legends KISS are rolling out into London in July and taking over the U.K. with not just a single release, but also a book release and an intimate show at London, England’s Forum on July 4.
Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer will be performing to their KISS Army of fans at the celebrated London venue for one night only as a fundraiser for the Help For Heroes charity. The band has always supported the U.S. troops at their gigs over the years but this year, on Independence Day, the U.S. rockers will be backing our wounded, sick and injured servicemen and women by raising money with this unique concert. All proceeds from the concert will go to the charity.
Ahead of the new KISS album, “Monster” (due out in the autumn), the band will also be releasing a single on July 2. Also, KISS are happy to announce that they will further be raising funds for our wounded, sick and injured troops as all proceeds from the single will be donated to Help For Heroes.
Paul Stanley states: “The greatest national treasure of any free country is the army that defends it at all cost. Bringing attention to the obligation we all share to those returning heroes has been our mission in the U.S. and now the U.K. We pay tribute to those brave men and women and urge everyone to show their thanks with donations.”
Bryn Parry, CEO and co-founder of Help For Heroes, “We are absolutely delighted to have the support from KISS and are certain the concert will be a huge success! The money raised will be used to provide direct, practical support to those wounded in the service of our country. We have already spent or allocated £millions and we have a shopping list of future projects that will ensure they get the very best. We may not be able to prevent them from being hurt but we can certainly do our bit to help them get better.”
When the world’s most visual band release anything, EVERYONE notices. And the launch of their latest book is no different! KISS “Monster” is a collection of artworks, 126 photos from the band’s 40-year career including never-before-seen images from the world’s greatest rock photographers.
Not known to do things by halves, KISS “Monster” really is a beast of a book at approximately 3 feet high by 2.5 feet wide and 2 inches thick. HUGE, in fact! It weighs approximately 4 stone. A must for fans of the band, KISS “Monster” will be available fully signed by all four band members and limited to only 1,000 copies worldwide.
