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.

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.

KISS Teams Up with Nellis Air Force Base to Choose “Roadies for a Week” During November Residency at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

hissheader

 

Rock ‘n’ roll legends KISS partners with Nellis Air Force Base to select three local, active military members to serve as “Roadies for a Week” during  the band’s KISS Rocks Vegas residency at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Nov. 5-23.

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.

With 28 U.S. gold albums as well as 40 million U.S. album sales and 100 million in world sales, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley together with longtime members guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer continue to grow their legacy, year after year. 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. We couldn’t be more excited to see what they’re gearing up for!” exclaimed Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking for AEG Live Las Vegas.

Phil Lewis featuring Sin City Sinners – Monday Night Rocks
10:30 p.m.
Singer for the LA Guns and rock guitarist, Phil Lewis, will perform at Crown Theater alongside Sin City Sinners. Lewis started in the music industry when he formed a glam rock band called Girl, which signed with Jet Records in 1979 under Don Arden’s label, who happened to be Sharon Osbourne’s father. The group toured with acts such as Ozzy Osbourne and ZZ Top. Lewis eventually began working with guitarist Bernie Torme, touring and playing to sold-out audiences across England in 1985. In 1987, Lewis auditioned for the band L.A. Guns and was quickly picked up as the lead singer. After a lot of hard work, the band signed to Polygram Records and released their self-titled debut album in 1988. L.A. Guns opened for AC/DC and Def Leppard, among others, and sold more than half a million copies of the album in America alone. The song, “The Ballad of Jayne,” from their second album Cocked and Loaded, was a top 20 hit and was the most requested song on MTV for two weeks. Lewis took a break from the band and in 1994 he built a recording studio to start producing local bands. During this time, he also recorded his first solo album, More Purple Than Black. Between 1996 and 1998 he showed how multi-talented he was when he worked as the recording engineer/editor for the Fox Sports Network. A year later in 1999, the L.A. Guns reunited to record another album and tour Europe and Japan. In 2005, Lewis worked with producer Andy Johns and another friend to record Tales From The Strip, which received great reviews. He recently released the instrumental album, Green Room, which was released in 2010.

Lewis will join the Sin City Sinners, a band comprised of lead rock musicians that perform at different venues around Las Vegas. Guests must be 21 years or older to attend. Guests can visit http://www.mondaynightrocks.com/ for complimentary tickets.
