In a very special opportunity for legions of KISS fans, the band will be doing a rare In-Store appearance at the new Best Buy in New York City. To celebrate not only the release of their new album KISS Symphony: Alive IV, which has shipped GOLD (adding another record to their lead as the RIAA title holder for #1 American Group Gold Record champions of all time), but the opening of the new Best Buy store, KISS will be stopping by to meet fans, take pictures and show everyone why they are still the best band in rock n’ roll.

Debuting on KISS Records/Sanctuary Records on July 22, KISS Symphony: Alive IV is unlike anything recorded or released before by the Rock Icons. KISS Symphony: Alive IV, captures one of the world’s greatest performing rock bands with the prestigious 60-piece Melbourne Symphony Orchestra live before a sold-out crowd from Australia’s Telstra Dome while on the 2003 tour. The energy packed two-disc set promises to captivate and tantalize fans new and old alike with twenty-two newly recorded live tracks featuring ten classic KISS tracks backed by the 60-piece Melbourne Symphony, six never performed-live acoustic versions of KISS classics and six raw classic KISS tracks sans orchestra. This spectacular concert event proved to be a memorable show highlighted by the Melbourne Symphony appearing in full KISS makeup and will be released as a DVD, in the future.

KISS recently celebrated their 30th anniversary marking their success in music, movies and merchandise. The band has received countless honors including The People’s Choice Award and a Grammy nomination for their 1998 release, Psycho Circus. With more than 80 million records sold, KISS remains America’s # 1 Gold award winning group, second only to The Beatles.
