Gene Simmons To Perform At The Trocadero June 2 In Conjunction With Wizard World Philadelphia
Production Joint Venture With Wizard World Touring Unit To Include 'An Evening with Gene Simmons and his Band'; VIP Meet and Greet Packages Available
By: Wizard World, Inc.
Tickets for the concert are available now at http://www.thetroc.com;
The event will mark Simmons' only East Coast date in 2017. The Trocadero Theatre event marks something of a homecoming, as he played there in 1992 as part of a club tour to promote the KISS album Revenge.
The concert is the third in a series as part of Wizard World's new Touring Unit, which brings vibrant live entertainment to Wizard World shows, building on its initiative to create an atmosphere of a weekend festival at every Wizard World show.
"I'm excited to bring Rock & Roll back to Wizard World Comic Con in 2017," said Simmons. "It will be great to meet fans and perform for them in Philadelphia."
Simmons, who has been a big hit in his first Wizard World appearance last year in Richmond and performed in front of a sold-out crowd in Cleveland this month, is a multi-hyphenate entrepreneur and one of the world's most recognized personalities. He co-founded KISS 42 years ago. KISS is America's #1 Gold Record Award Winning Group of all time, in all categories (RIAA). KISS has sold over 100 million CDs and DVDs worldwide, is celebrating its 43rd year, and continues to sell out stadiums and arenas around the world, breaking box-office records set by Elvis and the Beatles. KISS was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at the 2014 induction ceremony, and the band is recognized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for its pioneering work.
Wizard World Comic Con Philadelphia is set for June 1-4 at Pennsylvania Convention Center. Wizard World events bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate the best in pop culture: movies, television, gaming, live entertainment, comics, sci-fi, graphic novels, toys, original art, collectibles, contests and more. Wizard World is also the place for cosplay, with fans young and old showing off their best costumes throughout the event. Fans dressed as every imaginable character – and some never before dreamed – will roam the convention floor. The famed Wizard World Comic Con Philadelphia Costume Contest will take place on Saturday night.
