Gene at heavy con

Postby deckard » Tue Aug 09, 2016 10:45 am

Does anyone know if gene is giving a speech at heavycon as well as signing stuff ?
I remember him mentioning a "big announcement" - any ideas what ?

So looks like he is doing a QandA in the main auditiorium and then if you have a black pass he is doing a meet and greet. Before doing a signing session. The snag is the black pass is 250pound! You do however get to meet all the other guests too. I've met Gene before and it cost nothing. The question is I guess how badly do you want to meet gene Simmons? lol

It does also say he is doing something very special on the Sunday.

Who knows what that could be lol

I wouldn't be so sure that a black pass guarantees a M&G with Gene. The small print says it guarantees a M&G with a guest 'of the organisers choice'! I emailed them about this change when the venue got shifted say I was only attending to see Gene and got no response. All a bit uncertain.

I really really really doubt it, since we're throwing stuff out, how about a new KISS album ?

Haven't they just lost a major sponsorship deal with TeamRock?

Looking at ticket prices, wouldn't be surprised if it is. This is the type of thing that will benefit from 'walk up's on the day.

Another event involving KISS or a KISS member cancelled in Europe? :(
This is only my opinion… it is neither right nor wrong (but my lovely wife tells me I'm always wrong)!

Interesting. Moved to a new venue or a smaller hall in the NEC?
Understand if you can't say though..

Okay, I've finally had confirmation, here's the lowdown before I put it on the site.... it's moving to April and will now be part of Insomnia60 at the NEC. The date will change to 13th – 17th April 2017.

So far so good, however Gene has not yet been confirmed but they are working on it...

Kind of buggers up the competition winner being announced on Saturday though (our 20th birthday).
