About ”KISS i Sverige”

Mock-Up-08

Alright World! You wanted the best…

It has arrived! KISS in Sweden 1976-2013 – The Book about all those times KISS visited Sweden. A book for anyone who loves KISS, filled with exciting stories, interesting facts and almost 1 000 pictures!

The authors have one thing in common – our passionate interest in the rock group KISS, and we hope and trust that you will feel this passion and feel your heart rate increase when you have the book in your hands and open it for the first time…

Our story begins when KISS lands at Torslanda Airport just outside of Gothenburg around 4PM on the 25th of May 1976. They arrive by plane unmasked and a Swedish photographer takes a few shots as KISS are about to embark on their first tour in Sweden, a tour which has generated scandalous headlines in the media long before the plane even landed. KISS will come back to visit Sweden again in 1980, 1983, 1984, 1988, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2008, 2010 and 2013 and the band or parts thereof have made promotional visits here in 1982, 1985, 1987, 1992 and 1994. The story of KISS in Sweden ends as Gene and Paul board an aircraft taking off from Kristianstad Airport in Everöd at 4PM on the 8th of June 2013, bound for Norway.

The goal with the book has from the very start been to document all of KISS’ visits to our country as thoroughly as possible. We searched far and wide for all the cool pictures that were forgotten or ended up gathering dust in an attic somewhere. We talked to those who met the band, privately or professionally, and we spared no dime uncovering the facts and unknown stories which has until now remained undocumented. We set out to do a book that we ourselves would like to read and we think we have succeeded. We are sure that all KISS fans will enjoy our book!
