KISS Starts 2010 North American Tour to Record Breaking Crowds and Sales

KISS has captivated the world for nearly four decades with their music and stage theatrics.  Now they are at it again.  Their 2010 North American Tour, The Hottest Show on Earth, opened to record breaking crowds.

The band became the first rock group to sell out the grandstands in Minot, ND, which holds more than 15,000 people.  The band also broke a 2009 gross merchandise sales record held by Taylor Swift in the cities of Cheyenne, WY and Minot.  The cities were the first two stops on the 32-city tour.

While KISS is busy playing to sold out crowds over the summer, they are also giving something back to the communities they play in and to the families of wounded soldiers. 

The band currently has a special ticket promotion for families.  In the amphitheatres on the tour with a lawn, the purchase of one adult ticket will get up to four children aged fourteen and under into the show for free.

Additionally, the band is contributing $1 from every ticket purchased, to the Wounded Warrior Care Project.  The project is a non-profit veteran’s organization, which provides assistance for wounded soldiers and their families upon their return stateside.  The first weekend of shows allowed KISS to generate more than $30,000 for the non-profit organization.

The current tour will feature the band playing many of their rock classics such as “Detroit Rock City” and “Rock and Roll All Nite” as well as many hit songs the band has not played in the United States for years.  If you plan to see the band while on tour this summer, plan to purchase your tickets well in advance.
