Celebrating 40 years in the music business, US glam-rockers, KISS, literally brought the house down during a gig last night (Wednesday 13th March) at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre or ‘EntCent’ for those of you that love an abbreviation (in which case – Abbr.).
A lighting rig collapsed and struck two poor souls on the head whilst fireworks were being let off as part of the show.

Coinciding with the bands’ 40 year existence is the worldwide ‘limited’ release of KISS Beer – Destroyer.
Australia has been ‘blessed’ with both the 500ml can and the 330ml bottle varieties.
We already know that this beer is a gimmick though, right? Yes! However, being an inquisitive fellow, I had to try it – just once – and so I slipped a single bottle out of the packaged 6pack at a local Dan Murphy’s store. The staff there just love it when I do that!
Sadly, the only destroying happening here is the potential destruction of people’s faith in beer. Absolutely no thought has gone into producing it and it’s simply as predicted – a very shitty beer lurking beneath a ploy to churn a few extra dollars into the band whose fortunes have been drastically waning in recent years.
KISS might be famous for their elaborate black and white face’s but I was left red-faced that I’d even bothered to try this one.
Would I drink it again? You can KISS my ar*e!
