Is Kiss Planning a Residency in Las Vegas?
Could Kiss be planning a Las Vegas residency? Paul Stanley said the band was considering it back in December. Posters photographed by fans around Las Vegas are now hinting that a deal has been struck.
The poster, printed on stand-up cardboard, features Kiss in its unmistakable makeup — and the web address for the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas. Above their faces are the words “Rock and Roll All Nite,” while beneath it says “Coming Fall 2014.” Those interested in further information on the show are encouraged to text “Rock” to 97580.
Stanley further fanned the flames about a week ago, when a Twitter fan asked if the band was planning to visit Sin City:

Such a residency would cap a busy 2014 for Kiss. Earlier this year, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a ceremony that ended up surrounded by more than its share of drama. More recently, Gene Simmons and Stanley engaged in a brief Twitter fight with ‘Modern Family’ star Eric Stonestreet — though the trio have since mended fences.
In happier news, Kiss celebrated their 40th Anniversary with the release of ‘Kiss 40,’ a collection of hits highlighted by a handful or previously unreleased tracks. Later this month, Kiss will kick off a 40-date tour with Def Leppard.
