Turning inner space into outer space

The kiss of death for KISS?

I’m glad KISS fans will get to see the band perform in Kamloops on June 26. I tend to get a little skeptical, though, when a group with a great past winds up here. If they were still able to fill larger venues, Kamloops likely wouldn’t have made the tour.

Look at some of the other cities KISS is visiting: Everett, Spokane, Abbotsford, Prince George, Fort McMurray, Sarnia, Grand Falls-Windsor and Orillia. They’ll also be appearing in Manchester, Bushkill and Springfield. That’s the Springfield in Illinois, by the way. What’s next? Months-long engagements in Las Vegas?

And just in you’re wondering: Gene Simmons is 61 years old and Paul Stanley is 59. They’ll be getting their pensions soon and won’t have to tour.
