KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons has posted a brief review of NINE INCH NAILS' August 10, 2009 concert at Fort Canning Park in Singapore.Nine Inch Nails played Webster Hall in NYC last night (8/23). Their next show is Tuesday at Terminal 5. I'm sure Gene will be happy to see them go (sort of, maybe).
Simmons, who was in Singapore on business, wrote in an apparently sarcasm-filled posting on his Facebook page, "Went to see Trent Reznor's [NINE INCH NAILS mainman] band. About 1,000 people attended the outdoor event. On other days (it's a three-day festival), it's LADY GAGA and KEANE. Band was solid. Good lights. Lots of smoke in every song. Couldn't see the band. But, boy, was there a lot of smoke. Terrific drummer, who played in perfect time with the tape loops. Good stuff... I loved it."
Kiss have announced a North American tour...
This incredible show will feature a new stage set, pyro effects that only the "hottest band in the world" could deliver, and all-new costumes. KISS ALIVE 35 North America also marks the first leg of the world's first fan-routed tour - in which more than 10,000 individual cities across Canada and the U.S. mounted their own unique campaigns to bring KISS to their towns.Exclusively at Wal Mart... Rock!
SONIC BOOM - KISS' highly-anticipated album, and its first new material in 11 years - will be released exclusively at Walmart, Walmart.com and Sam's Club retail locations beginning October 6.
Tickets for shows at MSG & Nassau Coliseum & other shows go on sale Saturday, August 29th at 10:00 AM. There are also about a zillion presales (my favorite is the "Buckcherry Presale"). All dates below...
