The hottest band in the world… are back in the UK! With their new album Monster out in October!!
Rock Legends KISS are rolling out into London in July and taking over the UK with not just a single release, but also a book release and an intimate show at London’s Forum on July 4th.
Gene, Paul, Tommy and Eric will be performing to their KISS Army of fans at the celebrated London venue for one night only as a fundraiser for the Help for Heroes charity. The band has always supported the US troops at their gigs over the years but this year, on Independence Day, the US rockers will be backing our wounded, sick and injured servicemen and women by raising money with this unique concert. All proceeds from the concert will go to the charity.
Ahead of the new KISS album ‘Monster’ (due out in the Autumn), the band will also be releasing a single on 2nd July. Also, KISS are happy to announce that they will further be raising funds for our wounded, sick and injured troops as all proceeds from the single will be donated to Help for Heroes.
Paul Stanley states "The greatest national treasure of any free country is the army that defends it at all cost. 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".
Bryn Parry CEO and Co-founder of Help for Heroes, “We are absolutely delighted to have the support from KISS and are certain the concert will be a huge success! The money raised will be used to provide direct, practical support to those wounded in the service of our country. We have already spent or allocated £millions and we have a shopping list of future projects that will ensure they get the very best. We may not be able to prevent them from being hurt but we can certainly do our bit to help them get better.”
When the world’s most visual band release anything, EVERYONE notices. And the launch of their latest book is no different! KISS MONSTER is a collection of artworks, 126 photos from the band’s 40-year career including never-before-seen images from the world’s greatest rock photographers.
Not known to do things by halves, KISS MONSTER really is a beast of a book at approximately 3ft high, by 2.5 ft wide and 2 inches thick. HUGE in fact! It weighs approximately 4 stone. A must for fans of the band, KISS MONSTER will be available fully signed by all 4 band members and limited to only 1,000 copies worldwide.

LIVE NATION PRESENTS HALLOWEEN NIGHT OF FEAR III
Support from Duff McKagan's Loaded and Ugly Kid Joe
Alice Cooper returns to the UK once again for his third Halloween Night of Fear tour, a now-annual institution of the macabre, celebration of gore and all out rock n roll fright fest.
And this year, he calls on the army of Alice Cooper fans to continue their support of the supernatural holiday and, as in the past 2 years, make every effort to turn up in the most outrageous costumes and rock out to the king of shock rock!
“We''re baaaaack!,” says Alice. “That's right kiddies, Alice and his band of ghoulish monsters are clawing their way back to the UK for our Halloween tour for the third year in a row. And what would Halloween be without me anyway? I mean, I practically invented it. We'll be playing the hits, of course, but there will also be surprises, costume competitons -- so dress to excess -- and as usual you never know who else might show up!
Taking the show to the UK once again, Alice will bring terror to the UK, visiting Cardiff, Wolverhampton, Bournemouth, London, Nottingham, Edinburgh and finishing off in Sheffield.
Each night turns into a giant costume party, as thousands of fans bid to outdo each other for the most ghoulish outfit and outrageous Halloween outfit, with cash prizes for the winners. Alice’s incredible band lead the party – featuring the three guitar attack of Orianthi, Ryan Roxie and Tommy Henricksen, along with the rhythm section of bassist Chuck Garric and drummer Glen Sobel - one of the great bands working in rock n roll, tearing into Alice’s classics and tracks from latest album Welcome 2 My Nightmare.
Joining Alice at the party will be Duff McKagan's Loaded* and recently reunited Californian rockers Ugly Kid Joe. So, dig out your top hat and tails, your mascara and monster gear and join Alice Cooper his ghostly gang as they take to the road this Halloween.
