Larger-than-life characters with outrageous costumes and secret identities are standard fare for summer movies these days. It seems only natural that the original rock and roll superheroes KISS will be bringing their live concert experience to theaters for one-night only in KISS Rocks Vegas on May 25th.
The Starchild, the Demon, the Spaceman, and the Catman deliver healthy doses of hits to an audience of multi-generational fans with a level of showmanship that makes the Vegas environment a natural fit for their act. Pyrotechnics explode, lasers flash, and band members rise and soar above the crowd while a unique video-screen array frames and enhances their every move.
KISS Rocks Vegas is a unique opportunity for new fans to experience the power and the sound of a live KISS performance, and for existing fans, well, we know why you’re watching this!
Recorded during a residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, KISS Rock Vegas presents a 2014 concert experience in glorious Dolby Atmos surround sound that will assault your senses and rock your world.
NYC Dads Group was lucky enough to get an invite to preview this spectacle, and we were immersed in the experience in the Dolby Showroom in Midtown Manhattan. We were in for a mind-blowing show.
Movie theater audiences will have the advantage of experiencing the visual spectacle of their performance in a way that the live audience simply can’t. The band delivers the goods in KISS Rocks Vegas, running through hits like “Detroit Rock City,” “Lick It Up,” “Shout It Out Loud” and more than a dozen of your favorite KISS classics that will have you stomping your feet and singing along.
And it can’t be emphasized enough just how detailed this concert is. If you’ve never seen KISS live before, here’s your crash course as to why they have so many life long die-hard fans.
If you have seen KISS live, then you also really need to see KISS Rocks Vegas just to see everything you’ve missed. There’s so much going on in this film that it can be definitively said that, yeah, you missed lots of stuff. Even if it is Gene Simmons’ drool. Which is awesome.
It simply cannot be overstated enough how singular KISS is, how amazing, how iconic, and how incredible their shows are. Combine that with their songs, the soundtrack of so many people’s lives, and this is far beyond a concert movie, this is a window onto Americana, a glimpse into the soul of heavy metal rock and roll.
I hear what you’re saying, what a load, right? C’mon man, you’re laying it on pretty thick, give us a break, huh?
You love KISS. Perhaps you don’t even realize it, but if you clicked on this, then yeah, you do. You just don’t realize how much you do is all. You love KISS songs. You smile when you see a picture of them. They are so much more than a band, they are ingrained upon culture, upon history. They are iconic, they are incredible, they are immortal.
Here’s your chance to see the band up close and awesome! After all, with larger-than-life characters with outrageous costumes and secret identities being standard fare for summer movies these days, it’s only natural that KISS gets their shot at the silver screen too!
