And those 'fans' are the ones who bear the most responsibility for the band being in the embarrassing, sorry shape they are in now.

This band is a total embarrassment now, pure and simple. You can't escape that fact.
The level of arrogance here is considerable. You seem to feel that because your fandom has waned, you get to dictate what everyone who remains should (or should not) be enjoying. This is - whether you like to think so or not - just entertainment. If you're no longer enjoying the party, go home. You stayed too long. And for the love of all that is holy, stop whining.

Given the pandemic, this is OBJECTIVELY fucking stupid and disappointing that KISS are doing this.

I would feel the same no matter the band or artist. Just because you can do something or someone is willing to pay you millions for this bullshit, doesn't mean you should. Clearly money is Paul and Gene's God.

Kiss doesn't read the room when it comes to their fans.

They only read the profit margin any more.

The irresponsibility and hypocrisy that Kiss has shown is off the charts. Gene and Paul have been all over social media talking about taking this virus seriously and now they are promoting to their fans to fly to a gig half way around the world. Packed planes, airports, etc... What would these guys not do to make a buck? Fuck them.

Obviously, being at this show isn't realistic for the average fan. Hence, the PPV.

Seeing the show in person is strictly for people who can afford to stay at the Atlantis over NYE. It's a show for the Atlantis' customers, bonus if they also happen to be KISS fans.

I'm guessing $15,000 is chump change to this demographic.

UCLA and others have been conducting clinical trials on Covid vaccines for some time. Again guessing, somehow the group and their crew managed to get on the list of participants who received the vaccine, not a placebo. Money talks.

Yes, even today, some fans believe the talismans still play a key role in all of this.

I totally agree. Say whatever you want about the Dubai show, the amount of time, energy and work they are putting into this show, putting aside the fact they're senior citizens and could have retired 20 years ago, is mind-boggling. They are WORKING for it, and there IS a reasonably priced option of $39. People act as if it's a personal affront against them. I personally don't understand doing the show during a pandemic, particularly in light of everything they've said for the last 9 months, but I don't take it personally, and it doesn't insult me as a KISS fan. It would be like getting mad at McDonalds because they put out McNuggets when they're a hamburger joint.

To me, they're working hard to make this thing big and pull it off, and you can never fault people for working hard to make a buck.
The comparison to McDonald's ring's true.

Exactly. The $ isn’t the issue, if someone wants to pay $15,000 to fly half way around the world ,when you can’t even go out and enjoy the city, and watch Paul lip sync from a hotel balcony, then God bless them.

The issue is the irresponsibility and hypocrisy of Kiss, and especially Gene and Paul. They’ve been all over social media about taking Covid seriously, and now they are offering packages for fans to travel through multiple airports and half way around the world to see them play. Sickening they’ll risk people’s health for more $.

Absolutely right. There is no other way to look at this.

It's fucking embarrassing that some here are trying to spin this as...well if you have the money to spend on this, what's wrong with that? Or just because you don't like what KISS is doing, doesn't mean KISS shouldn't do it.

Get the fuck out of here with that shit. What KISS is doing here is undeniably wrong and that is the bottom line.

No. There’s nothing morally wrong with the fact that they’re performing. This is commendable. More band should do that.
The problem is that they aren’t proving the product the is worth the price.

How are they prompting fans to go to this show? They're prompting them to watch from the safety of their home on PPV.

As far as travelling through multiple airports, etc., just a guess but, there would be plenty of people staying at the Atlantis anyway, KISS show or not. Basically, it's a private party gig and they're allowed to sell it on PPV.

They're probably not even the ones responsible for the PPV. Whoever is paying them for this show is. KISS just gets a pre negotiated amount from those sales for promoting it. Like all of their other licensing agreements.

I have - from all I’ve heard this situation will not end soon, it will be present for quite a while.
So you cannot just wait it out, you gotta find the way to carry on with your life and to do things safely. And with this show they’re doing that, they taking all the precautions- everyone will be tested, people will be watching the show from their balconies, etc. Is there’s one positive thing about this show, it is the fact that it’s gonna take place during a pandemic - that all possible measures will be taken but the show will still happen.
The problem is the insane prices, subpar product, but not the fact of the show.

I am about to blow your mind - some bands/artists/comedians/whatever actually say no to big money offers from time to time for whatever reason.

In some cases, it was Dubai as well.

Paul and Gene saying no to money from time to time isn't going to change their life. This SHOULD have been one of those times.

There's been no mention of this on Kiss Online. No mention in any social media of Gene or Paul.

Are we sure this isn't Sixth Man trying to recoup lost revenue? Less than 6 weeks away. I would have thought Gene and Paul would be promoting the crap out of this if it were a done deal.

This is all hypothetical right now.

I was THAT kid that bought the packs of kiss cards and got the records for my birthdays, idolized those larger than life characters, and maybe naively believing that they cared about the fans at least part of the time.

Sad to say that musically they are now a fraction of the band they once were, Simmons looks tired, forgets words, while Stanley lip syncs and does the same old tired raps he’s been using for the last 20 years. It’s like seeing a funeral in slow motion, with loud pre recorded music and lots of confetti.

The level of arrogance here is considerable. You seem to feel that because your fandom has waned, you get to dictate what everyone who remains should (or should not) be enjoying.

And those 'fans' are the ones who bear the most responsibility for the band being in the embarrassing, sorry shape they are in now.

This band is a total embarrassment now, pure and simple. You can't escape that fact.
The level of arrogance here is considerable. You seem to feel that because your fandom has waned, you get to dictate what everyone who remains should (or should not) be enjoying. This is - whether you like to think so or not - just entertainment. If you're no longer enjoying the party, go home. You stayed too long. And for the love of all that is holy, stop whining.

This is shaping up to not only be (easily) the biggest concert event of 2020, but possibly the biggest rock concert event of all time.

There hasn't been anything like this since "Elvis Aloha from Hawaii live via satellite"

I think you're nearing the end of your user name cycle here Hey Man. When you're playing the "sheep" card it usually means you're about to get really abusive and persistent and then banned.

I look forward to your next username.

I know you hope for that, but no that won't be happening.

It's also not a card I am playing, but I could have predicted that out of all the people on this forum, you would be the one to make this post. I thought you were done with me. Guess not after all.

Nothing wrong with that my friend. I'm just one of the people who think Kiss should've left the party years ago before Paul had to resort to lip syncing.

Sure why not I got 15K worth of aluminum beer cans in my back yard I need to sell :lol: If you have that kind of money to burn I’m glad for you. If I did I seriously doubt I would spend it on KISS in Dubai. I would use 15K to help out some people in need.

SureKnowSomething wrote: Sun Nov 29, 2020 1:12 pm How are they prompting fans to go to this show? They're prompting them to watch from the safety of their home on PPV.

As far as travelling through multiple airports, etc., just a guess but, there would be plenty of people staying at the Atlantis anyway, KISS show or not. Basically, it's a private party gig and they're allowed to sell it on PPV.
How are they promoting in person? It’s what this thread is about. The very first line of the thread:

The KISS Kruise just emailed info out for NYE Dubai in person packages
There's been no mention of this on Kiss Online. No mention in any social media of Gene or Paul.

Are we sure this isn't Sixth Man trying to recoup lost revenue? Less than 6 weeks away. I would have thought Gene and Paul would be promoting the crap out of this if it were a done deal.

This is all hypothetical right now.
To be fair, they did make the official announcement for the PPV and Gene promoted the PPV on Entertainment Tonight. But, like I said, it's nonsensical to say they're expecting many from their own base to make the journey. There's no reason for them to promote attending in person, Atlantis will easily be filled with it's own customers.

As far as offering a M&G package, I don't expect they plan to sell a shit ton of them. But, there will still be plenty of rich people who aren't regular fans that will buy it.

The money they've been offered for this is probably more than anyone here has guessed. More than likely there's some megarich oil sheik bankrolling it purely for their own jollies. Just because they can. Anything they make off of it is purely incidental. Yes, there really are people with that much disposable income, especially in Dubai.

Off topic but, am I the only one calling this KISS 2020 Du Bye? :lol:

I really don’t get this line of thinking. They are hypocrites, plain and simple. You can’t go tell everyone to take Covid seriously and then promote a concert and meet n greets in country half way around the world. Whether they expect “a shit ton of people” to attend isn’t the issue, it’s that they are doing this in the first place while a pandemic is at its apex. It’s irresponsible and it’s pathetic what these 2 clowns will do for money.

They'll be on a private jet. Access to them will be restricted. Everybody outside of their pod will be distanced. And, more likely than not they've gotten enough trial vaccine for their whole crew.

They're privileged, it's not the same as it would be for us peasants.

Because there's a long pileup of their fans chomping at the bit to get in on a $15K distanced M&G, halfway around the world?

That and whatever merch is probably the only additional money they stand to make from people at the venue.

However, they are actively promoting and they do make additional money off selling the PPV.

So just gloss over the hypocrisy and irresponsibility because there won’t be a long line of fans”chomping at the bit”?

Gene and Paul are on social media telling everyone to take Covid seriously. Gene and Paul’s band are promoting fans to attend meet n greets and to travel to a place half way around the world. This makes Gene and Paul HYPOCRITES.

Gene and Paul are on social media telling everyone to take Covid seriously. Gene and Paul want fans to leave their homes to fly through multiple airports and cities to a foreign city while a pandemic is reaching its apex. This makes Gene and Paul IRRESPONSIBLE.

It doesn’t matter if 1 person or 1000 people go ahead with it. These guys will put making money ahead of their own morals.

Where have they ever said as much? They're hired entertainment at a private party for guests of the Atlantis.
