I saw it! Really shocked me I have to say. Awesome to see KISS on such a popular channel. Shame the bloke's voice is so unexciting but great news!
Let’s come to London, strip it down, turn it up and blow the roof off The O2 Academy.

KISS advertising the tour on TV?

Is this a sign that the added shows arent selling that well and they are pulling out all the stops for maximum exposure?

Certainly never had to do this before...

the rumour for what it is worth that the other shows in the North are not selling well, Sheffield has only 2500 sold so someone told me on Tuesday. HUge gamble to play the extra gigs, but theres still 2 months, even die hard Kiss fans there are are only a few I know that are going to all 9 shows. WOuld be great if they do all sell out. Kiss is one of the few "older" bands that get s featured nearly every week in Kerrang, so its down to the new teenage brigade me thinks to boost ticket sales.

Pretty much. TV advertising's pretty expensive, far more so than print or radio.

I think Sheffield's done about 4,000.

The Finsbury Park show in '97 was advertised on TV, it was a joint ad for Greatest Hits CD and the gig. That one didn't sell too well either although I heard there was a big turn up on the day for last minute tickets.

As for Sheffield I've so far resisted selling on my Manchester tickets just in case Sheffield gets cancelled, although Mrs Iceman has been checking the ticket agency websites and says some are now showing limited availability or tickets right up in the gods, so I'm guessing its sold a large proportion?

Does anyone have any reliable figures as to how well Sheffield is selling? I'm taking the kids to Sheffield and would hate for it to be cancelled and for them to miss out.

Unlikely - dont listen to rumours on here, just trust that Kiss/promoters know what they are doing.

I think it is cool that Kiss are advertised on TV, hopefully it sells some albums and tickets because that is what TV ads are for .... to sell. What they are not is a sign of desperation. :roll:

Well I can believe that. I know quite a few peeps back up home and they all bought for Glasgow &/or Manchester. When Sheffield/Newcastle was announced many of them just stuck with the tickets they had as they booked hotels/travel already and simply didnt bother getting any hometown tix. Wasn't just as easy as selling your ticket.

I can't see KISS cancelling tho. Hell, Brighton, Wembley 84 were very poor as far as sales went and Wembley 88 certainly wasnt sold out and B/ham 92 was no where near sold out. They played them all when in 84, especially, it would have made more sence to cancel one Wembley date and just play the one and evn then it wouldn't have sold out!!!!! To add a date then cancel it would just not be good to see. And anyway...the less people there the better! More intimate...can relive Islington all aover again!!!!!!

Oh i don't know about that. I missed the Kiss advert but saw two others, one for McDonalds, and the other for Coke. Now when i called in the newsagents later that day, i just walked straight in and purchased a can of coke, no queue or anything. So it's pretty obvious that people who are desperate to sell will resort to tv adverts. :D
