just been sent the following press release from Taylor Herring
KISS MAKE CAMEO APPEARANCE IN ‘A SCOOBY DOO HALLOWEEN’
Legendary rock band KISS are to star in a one off Halloween special of the nation’s best loved cartoon, Scooby-Doo.
For the first time ever, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss make a debut appearance in Scooby-Doo to commemorate Scooby’s record breaking 350th episode. The canine super sleuth and co have been awarded a Guinness World Record for ‘The most episodes of a Cartoon Comedy’ beating off all other competition, including the Simpsons.
KISS’s debut can be seen in the Scooby-Doo Halloween episode on Boomerang this Friday 29th October at 5.30pm and again on Sunday 31st at the same time.
The special sees the Scooby-Doo gang eager to get to Banning Junction to do some major trick-or-treating and catch a KISS concert. But when the gang arrives they find the town under siege by mysterious events, which the locals ascribe to the ghost of a long-dead mayor who put the town under a curse when he was recalled from office.
The KISS concerts features their well-known track ‘Shout It Out Loud’.

The 10th Treehouse of Horror shock-night fright fest featured the talents or rock stars Gene Simmons, 55 - the inspiration for Bart's costume - Alice Cooper, 56, Rob Zombie, 38, and, bizarrely, 70-year old crooner Pat Boone."
|12th October 2004 Rock The Nation - low ticket sales|
Blabbermouth / USA Today]
According to an article in the USA Today, KISS' "Rock the Nation" tour was one of the summer's bigger flops. Based on the figures released by Billboard Boxscore, KISS sold 49 percent of all tickets, with an average of 8,444 tickets sold per show. The hottest acts of the summer were bands like JIMMY BUFFETT, PHISH and the DAVE MATTHEWS BAND, who sold more than 20,000 tickets per show. MADONNA and PRINCE have also sold 100 percent of their tickets. "KISS may have rang that farewell tour bell one too many times," commented Billboard's Ray Waddell. "There were only two originals. And how many times can you go to the well without offering something new and different."
