Kiss Residency Coming This Fall to Hard Rock Las Vegas

Long-standing rumors about a Kiss residency in Las Vegas are being confirmed, with an official announcement from the hotel-casino on the way soon.

This sign is at The Joint at Hard Rock. Here’s hoping they stop spelling it “nite.” We hate that.

Posters like the one above have been spotted at the Hard Rock, touting the iconic rock band is coming to The Joint at Hard Rock Las Vegas in “fall 2014,” but specific dates aren’t yet available.

The poster urges fans to text “Rock” to 97580 “to be one of the first to find out about show dates and on-sale info.”

Expect a run on greasepaint in Sin City in the months to come.

Kiss member Paul Stanley previously confirmed a Las Vegas residency was in the works, but until now, nothing concrete had materialized. (Much like the rumored Kiss Coffeehouse.)

The band already has a presence in Las Vegas with its popular Kiss Monster Minigolf.

BrandWeek says, “Kiss has licensed its name to more than 3,000 product categories.” Yes, as you may have heard, including the casket category.

Kiss recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. The group released its debut album, the self-titled Kiss, in 1974.

Since then, Kiss has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide. Not to mention a metric ass-ton of lunch boxes.

This seemed a good place for a gratuitous photo we took of the entrance to the Hard Rock.

So, since the contracts are signed, why hasn’t the Hard Rock just come out and announced the residency officially? Apparently, Kiss is currently touring under the umbrella of a live music company called Live Nation Entertainment. At Hard Rock, however, they’ll be working with AEG (Anschutz Entertainment Group). Chances are Hard Rock is holding off on an official announcement until Kiss is clear of its obligations to Live Nation. Note that the posters at Hard Rock don’t mention Kiss by name. Of course, the Kiss brand makes that almost entirely moot.

Kiss Army members can expect more news soon.
