On Tour: KISS

KISS are set to play a one-off show in London on July the 4th to support UK armed forces charity, Help For Heroes.

The Kiss Army have been invited to gather at the Forum, London, for an intimate performance by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. Proceeds from the band’s upcoming single will go to the organisation that seeks to support wounded, sick and injured servicemen and women.

KISS have a long history of supporting US troops, but their 2012 Independence Day show marks the first time they’ve done the same for British forces. Frontman, Stanley said:

“The greatest national treasure of any free country is the army that defends it at all costs. Bringing attention to the obligation we all share to those returning heroes has been our mission in the US – and now the UK. We pay tribute to those brave men and women, and urge everyone to show their thanks with donations.”

The band will be releasing the single on July 2nd, and on the same day, their new book, Monster – named after their upcoming album – will also go on sale. The book will be signed by all four members and is limited to 1000 copies worldwide.

Their album, Monster album is due this October.

Tickets for the show will go on sale from 9am on Friday 15th June (tomorrow).
