Kiss in Madrid: a special appointment you can’t miss
Getting to see one of the most representative rock bands of all time is one of those things you need to experience at least once in a lifetime, which is one of the main reasons you shouldn’t miss out on the chance to see Kiss on one of the two concerts they are offering in Spain. As part of their 40th anniversary tour, they are playing on June 21st in Barcelona, and on June 22nd in the capital city of Spain, at the Barclaycard Center (formerly known as Palacio de los Deportes). It’s the perfect occasion to make a reservation in a hotel in the centre of Madrid and enjoy a unique experience that is the show of these rock legends.
Undoubtedly, it’s an exceptional opportunity. Many legendary bands are doing commemorating tours which effectively prove that they are still very much alive. However, nothing lasts forever: Gene Simmons, the bassist of Kiss and one of the main promoters of the band is already 65 years old, with the rest of the group being around the same age. This is an event you wouldn’t want to miss out on and bitterly regret it later. For that reason, and because we are talking about one of the most influential bands of all time, we should all pay tribute to Kiss by attending the show and singing our hearts out.
The ticket sale, a total success
You aren’t, of course, the only one who decided to book a hotel in the centre of Madrid and take advantage of the opportunity to see these living legends live. On the first day, 10,100 tickets were sold for the show in Madrid and 7,000 for the show in Barcelona, which is a very enthusiastic response. The band will certainly make it worth your while with their impressive staging and pyrotechnics, something that won’t leave anyone indifferent. Additionally, you will be able to enjoy the luxury of seeing The Dead Daisies, their opening band.
If you’re already looking at the calendar and trying to fit this getaway into your schedule, you might want to know that the price of standing tickets starts from €65, while the seating section tickets range from 50 to 80 Euro. There are also several types of VIP tickets. Now you only need to choose a reasonably priced hotel in the centre of Madrid, your means of transport and you will find yourself before a pretty balanced budget.
Sensational shows that leave you breathless
It’s already been 5 years since the last time Kiss visited Spain. During their last tour they introduced Sonic Boom, their first studio LP in eleven years. Five years ago, 16,000 souls were lucky to attend a sensational show in Madrid. Almost two and a half hours of the perfect combination of pyrotechnics and rock proved why Kiss is the band with the most gold record awards in the United States (with a total number of 28, no less), and why they’ve sold over 100 million albums worldwide.
In spite of having played gigs for 40 years, this epic 70s band still gives everything and more on each of their shows. Their distinctive make-up and outfits turn Gene Simmons into The Demon; Paul Stanley into The Starchild; Tommy Thayer into The Spaceman; and Eric Singer, The Catman. All members of Kiss perform a different character while offering a unique sound, overcoming the barrier of time. This 40th anniversary tour, in particular, promises to offer an unprecedented show, with an exceptional production of light and sound you will hardly be able to forget.
So, if you don’t want to regret missing out on this rare chance to see Kiss, make a window in your schedule and find a hotel in the centre of Madrid to enjoy one of the best shows of your life.
