On Wednesday May 14th the place to be and be seen was Planet Hollywood’s Sin City Theater with “SIN CITY KISS” for a special media premier of the NEWEST show on the Las Vegas Strip “COMPENDIUM!” It was an ALL STAR event! There was a great showing of support from the local music scene including, Frank Dimino, Janea Chadwick Ebsworth, Electric Messhiah including a little “KISSTORY” with Jason Ebs ( former singer for Peter Criss on the ‘Bad Boys of KISS” Tours) and Scot Coogan ( former drummer and vocalist for Ace Frehley) in the house to share their support for “COMPENDIUM” and “SIN CITY KISS.”
“SIN CITY KISS” delivered a KICK ASS show!!! With each song you could clearly see everyone recalling their favorite KISS memories. Locals and visitors alike will definitely want to add “COMPENDIUM to their MUST SEE list!
So just what is a “compendium?” A Compendium is a collection of things presented together and in this case the “COMPENDIUM” will be paying tribute to many of the great music makers of our time. The first tribute to be honored in “COMPENDIUM” is the 40 year history of perhaps one of the most influential bands in music history, “KISS” featuring local favorites “SIN CITY KISS”
I have to say also that the SIN CITY THEATER is wonderful, great sound and lighting in an intimate room very reminiscent of a contemporary old Vegas showroom.
This is the must see show of the summer in Las Vegas!” declares Sin City Kiss founder Luis Reyes, aka Las Vegas Gene Simmons. Reyes continues, “A KISS tribute show has never reached this level performance and variety; mixed with the Vegas flavor and sharp venue experience. We have put together a fully historical tribute show, which involves 3 costume changes and a wide variety of KISS’ music, spanning their 40 year career.
Compendium at The Sin City Theater officially opens Thursday, May 22nd with Rock ‘N Roll All Night: a tribute to the Myth and Music of Kiss, featuring Sin City Kiss. Additional tributes and band residencies soon to be announced.
Performances are Thursday through Monday at 10pm. Tickets are General Admission $47.50; VIP $68.50, available at The Sin City Theatre Box Office, (702) 777-7776, located inside The Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, on the Mezz and Ticketmaster.
Best wishes for much success to Producers John Padon and Pete Housley from all of us at SIN CITY PRESENTS magazine.
