Detroit Rock City - the movie

2 KISS specials on television this weekend. On Saturday 8/7 there is the MuchMusic KISS "DRC" Special at 9:30 am with a repeat at 4pm. The MTV "DRC" Special will air Saturday 8/7 at 6:30pm with repeats on Sunday 8/8 at 10:30pm, 8/10 at 7:30pm and 8/14 at 10:30pm.

Monday, August 9th is the premiere for Detroit Rock City, two days later on August 11 the band receives a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and on Friday the 13th the movie opens nationwide. KISS will perform at the invitation-only post-screening party, as will soundtrack participants Everclear, who'll be joined by Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick to play "Surrender," which also appears on the soundtrack. Everyone can see the performances live via a VH1 Cybercast at 9 PM Pacific/Midnight ET August 9th at VH1 will also broadcast the coverage of the "DRC" Premiere Party Wednesday (8/11) at 11:30 pm EST. Fans are invited to turn out for the Walk of Fame induction to witness the unveiling of KISS' star at 11:30 AM on August 11. Dick Clark (why?) will emcee the event, which will take place on Hollywood Blvd. between La Brea and Sycamore.

Meanwhile, the next KISS film (a biographical feature) is in pre-production, and a CBS telefilm is being written that follows a guy and girl who see each other at a KISS concert in 1976 and miss getting together, but try to find each other at a KISS concert two decades later. Hope these are all a lot better than "KISS Meets The Phantom" - the awful NBC TV movie done in the late 70's. As for actual KISS concerts, it now seems that the next KISS tour, which is widely rumored to be a farewell one, will begin in January of 2000. Officially this is another leg of the Psycho Circus tour - but Ace has reportedly been telling people that he is going to leave the band after this tour to get back to his solo career. I fear that something billed as "KISS" will tour for quite some time - as long as Gene smells $$$ in it.
