Vinnie Vincent is due to make a rare public appearance on January 19th & 20th at the Atlanta KISS expo. He'll be doing a meet & greet on the 19th followed by a Q&A session on the 20th. Tickets are available now over on the Atlanta KISS Expo site.

Vinnie hasn't been in the public eye since 2014 when his wife sadly passed away, he very rarely attends anything KISS related so looking forward to seeing what happens with this one.

SNOG are an up and coming UK KISS tribute band, their next show is lined up for the 19th August at the Tropic at Ruislip (tickets £10 in advance from the Tropic or £12 on the door).

You can hear them play "Detroit Rock City", "Crazy Nights" and "Rock and Roll All Night" over on Soundcloud - all were recorded at Assulat and battery Studios, Willesden where Iron Maiden recorded "Number of the Beast"! -
More info over on their facebook page - or Twitter -
