VIDEO: KISS Kruise Day 1

Once Gene Simmons got wind that other rockers had been making money off of cruise ship concerts and packages, KISS became interested in following in their footsteps.

Just a few of the artists who may have inspired Gene to copy their idea include 311, Bret Michaels, Kid Rock, Sammy Hagar, ShipRocked (this year w/Buckcherry, Queensryche and more), Rock Legends (this year w/ZZ Top, George Thorogood and others), VH1 Best Cruise Ever…and others.

KISS announced their plans back in May, and the first-ever KISS Kruise set sail Thursday afternoon from Miami with more than 2500 fans aboard.

KISS performed a “Sailaway” concert to launch the festivities, and then did an audience Q&A to initiate the communication between the band and its fans.

The KISS Kruise: Wet, Wild & Rockin’ runs October 13-17 from Miami, FL, to Half Moon Cay and Nassau, Bahamas on board a well-known ship brand.
