KISS Dubai in person packages begin at $15,000

Post by Leif Karoo »

The KISS Kruise just emailed info out for NYE Dubai in person packages. Who has this kind of money after a year of being underemployed due to Covid?

*********************************************

As a KISS Kruise Alumni we wanted to let you know we are working with KISS to explore the idea of building an immersive KISS VIP Vacation Experience with exclusive opportunities with the band and special items as noted below for the KISS 2020 Goodbye New Years Eve Show. The plan would include special experiences and discounts just for alumni of The KISS Kruise.
Since there is not a Kruise this year as planned, we wanted to get your direct input on bringing the KISS Navy together to ring in the New Year with KISS in Dubai. Thank you very much for your feedback.
-KISS and your friends at Sixthman

Your Once in a Lifetime KISS New Year’s Eve VIP Experience Could Include:

5 nights at Atlantis Dubai in an exclusive KISS block + in-room concert viewing passes from your own private concert balcony experience
Socially distanced meet and greet with KISS
A high-end personalized commemorative KISS guest gift
Exclusive access to a KISS Soundcheck party
Exclusive engraved numbered KISS 2020 Goodbye metal ticket
VIP Laminate
Airport transfer to and from the hotel
Guinness World Record Certificate for the biggest pyro show ever
Your Name in the credits of the KISS 2020 NYE movie to be filmed during the experience
NYE dinner included before the show
VIP concierge 24 hours a day
Priority seating at restaurants, clubs, etc.
Chauffeured car service 24 hours a day anywhere in Dubai
In-room beverage package included with your stay

Packages are based on groups of 2 adults per room and prices would start at $15k per room, approximately $7,500 per person before your KISS Kruiser discount. Note, flights are not included and all guests are responsible for their own COVID-19 test required by UAE.

Well not everyone's income has been affected by the pandemic, and as everything has been shut it might have been possible to actually save money that would usually have been spent on holidays anyway.

From a UK perspective, The tickets would be 11k but that's for two people, so 5.5k each and you just need to pay for your flights. So about a grand per night in a luxury Dubai hotel, a record breaking KISS gig from your balcony with VIP concierge service, and all that other stuff? Where do I sign?

Kiss are so oblivious to what is going on in the world. I have 0% respect for them at this point. Now I know they will say that this is for those that can afford it... but c’mon, at what point did you decide to say the hell with the people that helped put you in the mansions you’re in 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.

Let me tell you, Dubai is for the financially well-endowed. In my previous career, we had a US client who I guess you’d say was experiencing extreme wealth. This person had a top floor penthouse residence in Dubai and would fly there twice a month in their private jet. Of course there was a yacht as well. I’ve heard it is very pretty there; cutting edge downtown architecture, etc. I also heard that much of the cityscape, even waterfront areas are man-made and were planted/designed/built with the very wealthy in mind. The very best of everything. If I was going to go there on vacation, that’s one place where I would plan to take every drop of money I had, knowing that I was going to dump it all during my trip. Kind of like Vegas LOL

This might be interesting if it were in 6 months. Need time to book travel, get a house sitter, etc., and not too keen to travel 16 hours in an enclosed metal tube with 150 other people during a pandemic.

This one definitely is the band being a bit tone deaf to reality. After 9 months of them screaming about social distancing, masks, staying at home, etc., now that numbers are at their highest they want people to run to Dubai? Dumb. I'm cool with the concert - thought it was a great idea. But this really makes them seem completely out of touch with reality.

KISS have never annoyed me about pricing - even when the majority of deluxe items (or even mediocre items) remained well out of my financial reach - until now.

This package, this year, just comes across as utterly offensive.

As a matter of interest, I just researched the price of five nights stay in the Atlantis Dubai...comes in around £1200 (call that maybe $1600?)

If you reckon watching a gig from a balcony and being able to shout a socially distanced "Hello!" to Kiss (along with some zero-value tat such as a laminate and ticket) is worth the remainder of $15000, then fair enough I guess...but I've got some magic beans you can buy.

When you water them they turn into the Alive II stage.

I have no idea what you claimed to have researched but minimum you are looking at around $7,500 for a room for 5 nights with the view of KISS

Or if you wanted a larger room... you could be looking at $22,600

You've maybe misunderstood me - I was talking about what they charged per night for a room any other night of the year, not what the going rate is for the Kiss thing on NYE. No idea what it'll show up like in dollars, but I'm getting offered as low as £199 for a night.

If you reckon watching a gig from a balcony and being able to shout a socially distanced "Hello!" to Kiss (along with some zero-value tat such as a laminate and ticket) is worth the remainder of $15000, then fair enough I guess...but I've got some magic beans you can buy.

When you water them they turn into the Alive II stage.

I have no idea what you claimed to have researched but minimum you are looking at around $7,500 for a room for 5 nights with the view of KISS

Or if you wanted a larger room... you could be looking at $22,600

You've maybe misunderstood me - I was talking about what they charged per night for a room any other night of the year, not what the going rate is for the Kiss thing on NYE. No idea what it'll show up like in dollars, but I'm getting offered as low as £199 for a night.

But any other night of the year doesn't matter. This is no different than Las Vegas around NYE or the Super Bowl.

Rates go up 5X or so their normal rates. That's just Supply and Demand.

Same with the Super Bowl in a regular year and then they do like 3 night minimums or more. And some $200 a night room easily becomes $1000 a night room.

There are KISS fans who will defend even this.
They are called sheep and yes you are correct

How is ANY DIFFERENT than someone paying $15000 for a Gene stage used relic or whatever?

And you could pay $7500 or so for the room itself or pay that and then the $1000 kiss package (so you could get alot of the stuff.... ticket, name in credits etc).

But you miss out on Soundcheck, distanced meet n greet, NYE dinner and some other stuff.

If not enough people buy.....they'll probably drop the price some.

And yes, for many this year has been terrible..... for others who have lots of money in BItcoin or the right stocks..... they've made a ton this year.

I wouldn't bash anyone for having this "experience"
