Professionally filmed video footage of KISS' April 14, 2009 concert at the 45,000-capacity Estadio Nacional Stadium in Lima, Peru as part of the group's 2009 South American tour can be viewed below (courtesy of "Mproducciones").

Wags & Elliott of the Columbus, Ohio radio station QFM96 recently conducted an interview with KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons. The eight-minute chat is now available for download as an MP3 audio file at this location.

On the topic of KISS' much-anticipated new CD, Gene said, "[It's the] first studio album in 11 years. And you can't force those things — either it's in your blood and it's happening or... This is, I have to say... this might be the best new record we've done since 'Destroyer'. In fact, it has a similar sound — 'Rock And Roll Over'-meets-'Love Gun' kind of a record. That's coming out in September/October, and then we're gonna be doing a 60-city American tour."

KISS made headlines in April when it announced its U.S. and Canadian tour will be the world's first to put fans in charge of where a tour is routed. This is destined to be the most explosive show of the year; and by partnering with web site Eventful, fans will "Demand" exactly where KISS and will perform in (top-voted) North American markets beginning this September.

KISS just wrapped up an astonishing trek through South America, where fans hailed the band at sold-out stadium shows across the continent. From the Hipodroma la Rinconada in Caracas, Venezuela to the River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina, KISS treated fans to a set of some of rock's greatest hits, including "Rock and Roll All Nite", "Detroit Rock City", "God Gave Rock & Roll to You" and "Shout It Out Loud", and more. The group's 2009 South American tour also included sold-out dates in Santiago, Chile; Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Brazil; Bogota, Columbia and Lima, Peru.

An official video announcement by the band's Paul Stanley, Eric Singer, Tommy Thayer and Gene Simmons (see video at, shot in front of a capacity crowd in Santiago, kicked off this first-ever tour promotion. With tens of thousands of their Chilean counterparts cheering in the background, North American fans were astonished to learn that they were being put in charge of routing their favorite band's upcoming tour.
