KISS Presale Info, Tour Dates, New Walmart Album

Kiss: Alive 35

Maybe Gene Simmons got tired of emceeing porn conventions or being a “reality” TV star, but whatever the reason, Chaim and the boys are putting the makeup back on again and heading out on the road for the Kiss: Alive 35 tour. Tickets for their October 10, 2009 show at MSG go on presale starting Friday, August 28 at 10AM, the password is HEKISS; regular on sale begins August 29 at 10AM. Tickets for their other local area show at the Nassau Colliseum on October 9 go on Buckcherry presale tomorrrow (Password: STARCHILD) and the regular on sale also begins August 29 at 10AM.

Aside from the aforementioned tour dates, there is also a new KISS album in the works.

Last week, the band announced that “Sonic Boom,” the first new KISS studio album since 1998’s “Psycho Circus,” will be sold in the US and Canada exclusively at Walmart, and Sam’s Club stores.

The new album will be part of a three-disc set scheduled for release Oct. 6. Filling out the package, which will sell for $12, will be a re-recorded greatest hits CD and a live DVD shot in Argentina during the band’s recent “KISS Alive 35” South American tour.

“Sonic Boom” was produced by KISS co-founder Paul Stanley in Los Angeles. Filling out the band’s lineup are fellow co-founding member Gene Simmons, along with guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer, who replace departed original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss, respectively. []
