Sin City has secured Kiss for a nine-show residency

Kiss is coming to the City of Sin.

The shock rockers have been booked for a Las Vegas residency starting in November, USA Today reports. The veteran hard rock band, celebrating its 40th anniversary, will be playing nine shows in Las Vegas beginning on November 5. They’ve been booked to play The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

It’s a fitting venue for a band inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April. The Joint has played host to other rock heavyweights including Santana, Guns N’ Roses and Def Leppard.

“Whatever you’re used to with Kiss, this will pump it up that much more,” guitarist Paul Stanley told USA Today. “If Kiss is on steroids, this is a double dose.”

The venue had been trying to book Kiss for over a year, hotel vice president Chas Smith said. “The activation will encompass the entire property for the month they’re out here — from the performances onstage to wrapping the hotel with Kiss stuff to having team members wearing Kiss shirts,” Smith said.

Since 2000, Kiss’ tours have grossed roughly $200 million, selling over three million tickets. Seats for the Las Vegas shows go on sale Friday for $49.50.
