Rock Band KISS - Live in Whistler

KISS Kicks Off Sizzling September Concert Series

Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Assignment Editor, Lifestyle Editor, News Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor VANCOUVER/BC/MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - Aug. 25, 2007) - It may be Fall in Whistler, but the Big Mountain Concert Company will turn up the heat as they stage a rare, outdoor appearance by KISS on Blackcomb Mountain, Saturday, September 15th. This incredible concert will be the first of three exciting weekends starring big-name, international artists in the spectacular mountain setting of Whistler, Host Mountain Resort of the 2010 Winter Games.

KISS is one of the world's biggest rock bands and they have played more than 3,500 concerts in front of 78 million fans around the world. "We're absolutely thrilled to be playing host to this legendary band," said Tourism Whistler Vice President of Marketing, Arlene Schieven. The world famous rockers will bring their extraordinary show to the slopes of Blackcomb Mountain at the Coca-Cola Tube Park Saturday, September 15th in a unique one-time outdoor concert event.

KISS invented stadium rock with their sci-fi Kabuki costumes, outrageous theatrics and, of course, their trademark make-up. In their extensive world tours, KISS has cultivated the most loyal fan base in music known as The Kiss Army. The stunning showmanship this band brings to the stage is overshadowed each time by their huge body of music. Destroyer, Rock and Roll All Night, Love Gun and Alive became the soundtracks for an entire generation of fans. KISS has sold 80+ million records throughout their career, and has earned more than 55 gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards since receiving their first gold record for KISS Alive! in 1975.

KISS rocked 800 million viewers at Super Bowl XXXIII, breathed fire into the closing ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games and welcomed the New Year in Times Square for four consecutive years. Now they are ready to rock Whistler.
