GENE & PAUL ON BILL AUCOINS PASSING
(from Kissonline)

Bill Aucoin, our irreplaceable original manager, mentor and dear friend has died of complications arising from his ongoing battle with prostate cancer. He was instrumental in guiding us from the beginning and without his vision, leadership and unending dedication, we could never have scaled the heights we have reached.

Bill loved life and lived it to the fullest. Words can never convey his impact on us or those close to him.

Over all the years, he never missed an opportunity to be with us at our shows near his home or fly in for special concerts, including our most recent Madison Square Garden show. He had hoped to attend our London show earlier this month but his illness prevented it. He still planned to visit us upon the start of our upcoming US tour.

We loved him, told him and have peace that he knew it.
We will grieve and celebrate all he was and did.
We have lost a part of us.

Lydia Criss."

An official press release states:

KISS IN BARCELONA
(from Richard Beck)
Here is a report from my friend Thierry

The "Palau Sant Jordi" contained about 11,000 people. KISS reached the peaks in these last days of the actual European tour. The performance was an incredible intensity, the sound was tuned to perfection, the voices were perfectly clear, the show was simply one of the best in this tour, according to my friend Titi THE best, KISS show he attended (and they are many).

Gene has been the victim of a small incident to the end of "I Love it Loud". The system not working, Gene was unable to get dwon from the platform. Paul was very professional &  performing a full minute of "Forever". During the encores, "Beth" was also interpreted. Paul asks, then, his faithful "What do you want to Hear now?" The thirty people biefed in advance by my friend Titi shout it out loud "SHAN DI-SHAN DI”. The appeal was heard, KISS played then entirely "Shandi". Awesome!

The Spanish atmosphere was like its usual, excellent & extremely caliente. For this last concert of the tour in Europe Sonic Boom, KISS was just fabulous and a gave full credit to its reputation as the greatest & hottest rock band in the world.

"SHANDI" LIVE IN OSLO
Here you can see Kiss performing Shandi in the sold out Vallhall, Oslo for the very first time during the Sonic Boom over Europe tour. The song was not played in its entirity, it was more like a teaser. The song was played unexpectedly during the encore, and the crowd went crazy.
They also played one verse of "Forever", which can be seen here.

GENE SIMMONS' LAST DAY ON EARTH
(from clashmusic.com)
How would you spend your last day on Earth? GENE SIMMONS from KISS would gorge on Jaffa Cakes.

Where would you like to wake up?
This is not an answer that makes people in other countries happy and it always sounds a little self-serving…quite honestly? The United States Of America. People are always proud of where they’re from. I’m not from America, I’m telling you as an immigrant, that’s where I wanna be.

Who would you like to wake up next to?
Myself.

KISS AT ROCK AM RING 2010
(from Hughes & kettner)
It does not get much bigger than this.
90,000 people in one place listening to one of the world's biggest Rock bands, KISS.

It was a pleasure to be there. The weather was great, the beer was cold, and the show was fantastic. The concert was also networked live on MTV, with many other broadcasters also being present.

Of course Tommy's Hughes & Kettner Tommy Thayer Signature Duotone amps sounded great! The big bonus is that we were also able to interview Tommy Thayer (and his guitar tech Jim Survis) stage-side during the afternoon.

BUDAPEST CONCERT REVIEW

(from rockpages.gr)
Looking at the schedule of the 2010 European Tour of KISS, it sure makes you wonder how long this band will still be on the road presenting the hottest show on planet earth! A couple of years ago, during the KISS Alive 35 World Tour, we were treated with the live presentation of the legendary Alive! Album in its entirety. Last year KISS released the excellent –and already a favorite among the KISS fans- “Sonic Boom” and they embarked on a world tour that hit Europe in the spring under the tour title “Sonic Boom Over Europe”. The show was hosted in the prestigious, modern indoor Papp Laszlo Budapest Sportarena that holds approximately 12.500 and the ticket prices ranged in between 35 and 60 Euros.

SIMMONS DENIES MAKEUP ARTISTS CLAIMS

(from UPI.com)
LOS ANGELES, June 4 (UPI) -- Rock star and TV personality Gene Simmons is denying claims by a makeup artist who said he assaulted her while visiting ESPN studios in Los Angeles.

Victoria Jackson filed a lawsuit against Simmons in Los Angeles Superior Court May 27, demanding the KISS frontman pay her $500,000 in damages for an assault Simmons said never took place.

Jackson said Simmons sexually assaulted her by grinding against her when he was in the ESPN studio to appear on "ESPN SportsCenter" before a KISS concert last November.

Simmons denies this could have happened since he was wearing full KISS makeup and costume, including a codpiece, at the time of the alleged incident.

"I have no idea who this woman is and I deny her allegations," Simmons said in a statement Friday. "I was only at the ESPN studios for a very short time, perhaps a half-hour, and was accompanied by KISS' drummer Eric Singer the entire time. I will not stand by and allow this baseless allegation to go unchallenged."

"Gene denies that any assault took place or that Ms. Jackson suffered any injuries attributable to any action on his part," Simmons' attorney, Barry E. Mallen, said. "Mr. Simmons intends to defend himself aggressively and he looks forward to refuting Ms. Jackson's charges in the courtroom."

ROCK AM RING

Kiss played yesterday at the "Rock am Ring" festival in Germany in front of 85.000 fans! The concert was shown live on "Eins Plus" and "MTV" all over Europe and there was also a worldwide live-stream on the internet available.

Many cameras captured the show from many angles, great camera work! Kiss were also interviewed before the show on "Eins Plus".
MTV has cut off the broadcast at the end of the last song. According to this site the Kiss concert will be repeated this night at 2:45 am (maybe uncut this time?).

Here are some screenshots from the internet-steam last night:
