As much fun as KISS Day sounds, unfortunately, we don’t mean besitos — you’ll have to wait the June 22nd for that.
KISS, the legendary rock band formed in New York City in 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss, is currently gearing up for their final performances at Madison Square Garden this weekend. The group is known for their timeless hits like “Rock And Roll All Nite” and “I Was Made For Lovin’ You”.
As we previously reported, ahead of KISS’ final shows at Madison Square Garden, happening on Friday, December 1st and Saturday, December 2nd, MetroCard vending machines at two Manhattan subway stations will be loaded with limited-edition cards with a photo of the band on the reverse side.
In coordinance with the MetroCard announcement and upcoming shows, Mayor Eric Adams celebrates the Rock and Roll legends, with the honor on November 30th declaring it official KISS Day in New York City. November 30th pays tribute to the band’s deep history with New York City coinciding with their final two shows at Madison Square Garden.
KISS remains one of the most influential bands in the history of rock and roll after 45 years. KISS has earned more Gold Album Record Awards than any American band in the history of The Recording Industry Association of America’s (RIAA) Gold and Platinum certifications with 26 KISS albums and four solo albums released simultaneously—a feat never before achieved by any band.
We surely hope that the Mayor is prepared for New Yorkers to rock and roll all night and party every day every November 30th moving forward!
