I Declare....Rocktober

Kiss on tour!


Yes, folks, Kiss is on tour again. I noticed that for $995 you can get a VIP package that includes a meet and greet with Kiss at the Mohegan Sun Casino in beautiful downtown Uncasville (I actually saw Kiss in Uncasville a few years ago, and they provided me one of my all-time favorite concert moments when Paul Stanley yelled "Hello! Are you ready to rock...Uncasville?" Classic! At least he didn't try that "I heard that Uncasville audiences were the loudest audiences..." nonsense!). Of course, you won't meet Peter or Ace unless they are at the bar.

But actually I was talking about the Fall leg of the Kiss of Life Tour: Check out all of these fine events and establishments I get to visit:

Oct. 9 Davis Kidd Booksellers, Memphis Tennessee
Oct. 11 Southern Festival of Books, Nashville Tennessee
Oct. 17 Cornerstone Bookstore, Salem Massachusetts
Oct. 24 Austin Teen Book Festival, Austin, Texas
Oct. 29-31 World Fantasy Convention, San Jose, California

Unlike Gene and Paul and the other guys, I have elected to waive my usual $995 VIP package meet and greet fees! And no extra charge for my signature, which I will gladly place on any book that I've written! I also draw little zombies that look more like sloppy Rorschach blots but I try really hard!

However, I do not have Buckcherry as an opening act, either. I must warn you that the Kiss of Life tour is a "without makeup" tour, so if you were hoping to see "classic" Kiss of Life you might be disappointed. I will, however, be singing "Strutter","King of the Nighttime World", and "I Was Made For Loving You", all while wearing 7 inch leather platform heels.

Disclaimer: There will also be no actual kissing on the Kiss of Life tour. Sorry!

Oh my gosh...It's amazing how they can be touring! How old are they anyway...'cause the band started in the 70's right? So like at least fifty? I suppose fifty is only a large amount for the "younger generation" though.

*o* I want to go so bad to the one in San Jose... I'll walk to it if I have to *starts packing luggage*

Amy said...

Austin!!! You'll be there right around my birthday. Maybe I can come out and see you there!!

Kye said...

What is it with authors? Totally avoiding where I live like it has some sort of infestation.
It doesn't! Hello! Come visit!

KISS is playing at Voodoo Music Experience this year. Psssh, you should add New Orleans to your tour- that way you can come see KISS.
-cough- Plus, then you'd be in the city I live in -cough-

But, seriously, KISS is playing at Voodoo fest, along with -many I don't remember but I remember these- All Time Low, and Eminem. ^^
