KISS rocks Halifax Metro Centre

KISS returned to Halifax on Thursday night, playing the Halifax Metro Centre. It was the first time KISS played an indoor show in Halifax since 1977.

The last time Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and crew were here, they headlined the outdoor “Halifax Rocks” show on The Commons in 2009.

Here are photos from Thursday’s show, captured by News95.7’s Scott Simpson.

Ya gotta wonder what Gene Simmons likes better – performing and getting a bunch of loot still, or being with Shannon Tweed. I wonder if Come-by-Chance will ever put a bronze of her in the town square?
