KISS Are Considering Opening A Restaurant In Melbourne

Prepare for a rocking and rolling feast, KISS have set their sites on Melbourne as a possible location for one of their Rock & Brews restaurants.

Reports News Limited, KISS bassist Gene Simmons has said he and bandmate Paul Stanley are looking at expanding their co-owned franchise, Rock & Brews into new markets around the world and Melbourne is on their list.

“That is in the works,” Simmons says. “We’re looking at that now.”

According to their website, Rock & Brews provides a “family-friendly rock ‘n’ roll experience” alongside “American comfort food and a broad selection of international and craft brews”. They already have a number of locations in the United Staes.

Hard rock legends KISS will this year visit Australia as part of their 40th anniversary tour, which they’re spriuking as one of the most spectacular rock shows of 2015. The extravaganza of a stage production has been dubbed ‘The Spider’ – which is moved by 38 computer controlled winches, features 220 automated lights, weighs 43,000 kgs, incorporates 900 pieces of pyrotechnics and is powered by 400,000 watts of sound.

They recently added a second Rod Laver Arena show in Melbourne, as well as the opportunity for another 60 fans to fork over $1250 for the he band’s prized VIP Meet & Greet Packages.

“Molly Meldrum and his cowboy hat was our ambassador for Australia,” Paul Stanley said of KISS’ first Australian tour in 1980. “When we got there he was one of our guides. And let’s just say the ride was rock.”
