KISS® By Monster Mini Golf®
Moves to Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino – Spring 2016

KISS® By Monster Mini Golf®, a unique rock ‘n roll themed amusement attraction based around the world-renowned band KISS®, is swinging into the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino with an opening set for Spring 2016.

KISS By Monster Mini Golf closed its original location on the corner of Harmon Avenue and Paradise Road on February 6, 2016, as it makes its way to an expanded space and rock ‘n roll environment located inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.  The original location opened its doors in March 2012, and has hosted numerous KISS band member appearances, rock ‘n roll memorabilia shows, weddings, birthday parties, rock legend autograph signings, unique private events and nearly half a million mini golf enthusiasts.

“Being in a hip indoor casino environment is going to provide KISS By Monster Mini Golf an expanded space to not only provide the coolest indoor KISS-themed mini golf experience, but it will allow us the space and security to showcase an amazing collection of KISS Museum memorabilia,” said Christina Vitagliano, CEO/Founder of Monster Mini Golf® and KISS By Monster Mini Golf.  “We are excited to join the Rio with an affordable attraction that rocks,” she said.

KISS By Monster Mini Golf will be located in the Masquerade Village with convenient self-parking in the Masquerade Parking Garage.

The new KISS By Monster Mini Golf location will be a 13,000 square-foot “KISS themed” attraction that showcases an indoor glow-in-the-dark custom-designed, rockin’ 18-hole miniature golf course filled with state-of-the-art video & animatronics, and never-seen-before KISS props. The environment will be filled with arcade games, a special event room, a colossal sized KISS and rock ‘n roll gift shop, and a rock ‘n roll wedding chapel with themed wedding packages. In addition, a live DJ will rock the house, throughout the days and many “Crazy, Crazy Nights” with continuous KISS music, trivia, contests and prizes creating a place embraced by locals, tourists, and rockers of all ages.

A highlight of this KISS themed attraction will be the museum-quality memorabilia located throughout the attraction.  Hundreds of pieces will be on display including: Drummer, Eric Carr’s Porsche that was gifted to him by Paul Stanley & Gene Simmons upon signing on with KISS; Original KISS Drummer Peter Criss’ Spirit of ’76 Tour stage used drum stool; every KISS Album since inception signed by all band members; original 70’s KISS Pinball Machine and actual band member guitars, personal belongings of Bill Aucoin’s, Bruce Kulick’s and more.

Monster Mini Golf was founded in 2004 by visionary, Christina Vitagliano who had “Great Expectations” to create an enjoyable and affordable amusement facility.  Her inspiration expanded to more 30 indoor blacklight themed miniature golf courses across the USA and Canada where “Unmasked” monsters with lively personalities are par for the course.  Her imagination caught the attention of Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley and KISS By Monster Mini Golf was born. Live Nation Merchandise, the exclusive worldwide merchandise and licensing agent for KISS, brokered the deal.

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL ROYALTY KISS MAKES MAVERICK HELICOPTERS ARRIVAL AT HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO AND KICKS OFF KISS ROCKS VEGAS RESIDENCY AT THE JOINT, NOV. 5

Tickets on sale for shows now – Nov. 23 at www.axs.com

Legendary rock band KISS blew fans away with an over-the-top Maverick Helicopters arrival outside of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino to launch their nine-show residency, KISS Rocks Vegas, at The Joint on Wednesday, Nov. 5.

Band members Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer were welcomed by more than 1,000 screaming, costumed and face-painted fans as they cheered in excitement for the epic aerial arrival. While outside, KISS posed alongside the helicopter for photos with Hard Rock Hotel’s Chief Operating Officer Jody Lake and Vice President of Entertainment Chas Smith; AEG Live Las Vegas’ Vice President John Nelson and Vice President of Booking Bobby Reynolds; the “Roadie for a Week” winners Master Sergeant Jason Borkuis of Nellis Air Force Base, Sergeant First Class Cory DeMille of the U.S. Army Reserve and Technical Sergeant Richard Reichert of Nellis Air Force Base; and the combat-wounded hero recipient of the newly-renovated, mortgage-free home John Hosea and his wife Sarah. The band then headed inside the music venue to kick off their sold-out show.

 

“Vegas! You wanted the best, now you’ve got the best,” yelled Stanley as he, Simmons, Singer and Thayer hit the stage. Concertgoers screamed in amazement as the foursome rocked out an amazing set list including fan favorites “Detroit Rock City,” “Love Gun” and “Lick It Up.” In true KISS fashion, the band’s production was unlike anything The Joint has seen before. The setup featured large LED screens spread across the ceiling and down to the floor, crazy pyrotechnics, lasers and more. The crowd was amazed as Simmons breathed fire and spewed blood from his mouth, Stanley flew across the venue and performed on hanging, balcony-side platforms, and Thayer shot out fireworks from his guitar.

 

Before starting the encore, KISS furthered their commitment to helping veterans by coming back on stage with Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Military Warriors Support Foundation and Chase Bank to present retired U.S. Army Staff Sergeant John Hosea and his wife Sarah a newly-renovated, mortgage-free home in Las Vegas. Hosea is a combat-wounded hero who enlisted in the military in 2001 and has received many awards including the Purple Heart, Combat Infantryman Badge, Afghanistan Campaign Medal with Campaign Star, five Army Achievement Medals, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and more. The band and crowd honored him by saying “The Pledge of Allegiance” and broke out into a “USA” chant.

 

KISS ended the show with their biggest hit “Rock And Roll All Nite” as confetti poured over elated fans and filled the 4,500-person venue.

 

Produced exclusively by AEG Live, KISS Rocks Vegas continues at The Joint Nov. 7 – 8, 12, 14 – 15, 19, 22 – 23. Tickets, starting at $49.50 (plus applicable service fees), can be purchased at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, online at www.hardrockhotel.com/thejoint, www.axs.com or charge-by-phone at 888.9.AXS.TIX.

Gene Simmons’s face graces a collection T-shirts, cardigans and vintage sweaters, accented by silver horns or claw buttons. One shirt, predictably a fan favorite, features a portrait of the four members on the front and the phrase “dress to kill” on the back.

Known for their extensive support of service men and women, KISS has been working with active military members and veterans for years. The KISS Rocks Vegas residency will mark the band’s third time enlisting the help of America’s heroes.

 

“It is an honor for us to enlist these heroes of our Armed Forces into the KISS Army,” said KISS Frontman and Guitarist Paul Stanley. “They have already proven what they are capable of and their presence can only elevate us.”

 

After submitting applications, Master Sergeant Jason Borkhuis of Nellis Air Force Base, Sergeant First Class Cory DeMille of the U.S. Army Reserve and Technical Sergeant Richard Reichert of Nellis Air Force Base were chosen by the band to become a “Roadie for a Week.” The three brave men have a combined 60 plus years of service, are highly-decorated and well respected in the armed forces community.

 

Borkhuis, Demille and Reichert will all work closely with the KISS crew and the band’s VIP program for a total of three shows each for their designated week. Each roadie will create his or her own video and photo diary to keep as a memento from their week working with one of the greatest rock bands in the world. In addition to assisting with the show, roadies will also receive a complimentary hotel stay at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino during their volunteer week.

 

“I was so amped up after hearing the news,” said Borkhuis. “I didn’t get much sleep prior to going to work the night shift. Instead of sleeping when I got home, I cranked my post-divorce theme song ‘Crazy, Crazy Nights.’”

 

“These guys are living legends,” said Demille. “It is awesome to know underneath the makeup and the outfits, they are patriotic Americans.”

 

“It’s a childhood dream come true and I’m still a kid at heart,” said Reichert. “I’m still in shock but I’m so excited to get this chance.”

 

KISS Rocks Vegas takes over The Joint Nov. 5, 7-8, 12, 14-15, 19, 22-23. Tickets start at $49.50 (plus applicable service fees) and are on sale now. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit the Hard Rock Hotel box office, www.axs.com or charge-by-phone at 1-888-9-AXS-TIX.

New Engelbert Humperdinck Duets CD Out Today Features Elton John, Gene Simmons, Willie Nelson & more

Engelbert Calling Cover USA Comp 600

“Engelbert Calling” is the new album and the first ever duets album from the legendary and incomparable Engelbert Humperdinck. Known as the world’s greatest balladeer, this collection is his 80th album release, arriving more than 45 years after his massive hit “Release Me” reached #1 on the pop charts and created a worldwide frenzy. This new album comes as a celebration of his remarkable career which has spanned nearly five decades and includes sales of more than 150 million albums world-wide, including 24 certified with platinum status and 63 with gold.

The album was produced by Grammy award winner Martin Terefe, who is best-known for his work with Jason Mraz, James Morrison, KT Tunstall, and Mary J Blige. “Working with Engelbert is such a truly remarkable experience,” Terefe stated when asked about his work with Engelbert. “He is without a doubt one of the best singers around today and brings so much other musical knowledge to the table.”

“He is one of the sweetest and nicest people I have ever worked with,” Elton John said about his experience collaborating with Engelbert. “We had a great time singing together and he is so quick, what I call a ‘one-take singer,’ 76 years old and still sounding as good as ever!”

“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to partner up with some of the best artists in the history of music.” Engelbert said about the album. “To continue putting out successful albums after 45 years in the business is a real testament to the loyalty of my great fans and this album is a ‘thank you’ to all of them.”

Engelbert Calling is available today at music retailers nationwide and online.

Along with an incredible recording career, KISS received a long-overdue induction into The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in April 2014. In addition, KISS’ new two-disc anthology, KISS 40, was released this past May. KISS 40 features one track from each of the band’s studio and live albums as well as tracks from each of the original band member’s 1978 solo albums and compilation cuts.

“KISS Army, get ready! America’s most iconic band is coming to America’s most exciting city. Rock and Rock Hall of Famers KISS are bringing their show to Las Vegas for their first-ever residency. For 40 years, KISS has been putting on some of the most exciting shows in music and we finally got them where they should be – Las Vegas – at The Joint.

Live the Rock Star Dream as Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp Announces “Rock Star For A Day” Package

LIVE THE ROCK STAR DREAM AS ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FANTASY CAMP
ANNOUNCES ‘ROCK STAR FOR A DAY’ PACKAGE

Celebrating its 15th anniversary, the highly successful Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp just completed a camp session in its new, permanent home in Las Vegas featuring such special guests as Sebastian Bach, Vince Neil, music director Kip Winger, Zakk Wylde, and headliner, rock icon Gene Simmons, among others.  Due to the overwhelming popularity of these programs, Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp is now offering a Rock Star for a Day package. The rock camp has long been known to provide music fans the opportunity to jam with legendary rock stars, write and record original songs, and perform live on stage in front of family and friends. The newest package from creator David Fishof allows everyone to join in the action and become a Rock Star for a Day– from novice to expert – this is the chance for music lovers to be paired with a rock star and live out their dreams.

Perfect as a gift or for any occasion including bachelor and bachelorette parties, Rock Star for a Day can be customized to any genre of music whether the rocker is ready to be a country singer or shred on some heavy metal guitar. Music lovers can sign up for as little as $299 and can work with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp team on their preferences, skill levels and any other detail that will make this a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. A list of packages can be found at www.rockcamp.com under “Rock Star for a Day.”

The Las Vegas studios are located just west of The Strip and boast 12 individual studios outfitted with all the necessities a rock star would need – from the latest equipment furnished by Boss, Cakewalk, DW Drums, Electro-Voice (EV), Fender, Gibson, Roland, Roland Systems Group and Zildjian – to tools of the trade and even a tour manager and roadies. A large sound studio completes the flagship location with state-of-the-art recording equipment and all backstage needs.

More than an adult playground of musical dreams, Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp at any level is a life changing adventure.

“RRFC has always been passionate about getting ordinary people involved in creating and recreating the sounds that shaped their lives,” said Roger Daltrey CBE of The Who.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas features three distinctive experiences: The traditional three-day and five-day Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp experience; the Rock Star for a Day packages; and the unique Corporate Camp. The set up and design of each experience allows campers and rockers of all levels to engage in the program regardless of their experience and whether they want to wail on the guitar or be the fearless lead singer. Traditional and Rock Star for a Day camps allow for an intimate, personal experience that will never be forgotten. Corporate Camps introduce employees to a high energy team building event that unleashes creativity and encourages collaboration to reinforce a group dynamic. All packages are customizable and the team at Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp can work within all budgets to create an exceptional experience whether for yourself or as a gift for your favorite rocker.

Past rock star camp counselors have included: Bill Wyman (The Rolling Stones), Slash, Roger Daltrey (The Who), Bret Michaels (Poison), Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys), Cheap Trick, Dr. John, George Thorogood, Jack Bruce (Cream), Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad), Jane Wiedlin (The Go Gos), Joe Satriani, Joe Walsh, Meatloaf, Mickey Hart (The Grateful Dead), Lita Ford (The Runaways), Steve Vai, Todd Rundgren, Vince Neil (Motley Crüe), Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), Michael Anthony (Van Halen) and Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot), among others.
