Paul Stanley: “Crazy Nights” Will Be In Sonic Boom Tour Set

In an interview with Metal-Rules.com, KISS frontman Paul Stanley has said that some of the band’s 80s and 90s back catalogue will be making its way into the upcoming Sonic Boom Over Europe Tour Set.

That noise you can hear is the sound of the KISS Army collectively dancing in celebration.

“Q: How about the 80/90’s material. There are lots of fans in Europe who are huge fans of the eighties and nineties KISS material. Will there be songs included from that period as well?

A: I’m sure “Crazy Nights” will be in the set and “God Gave Rock & Roll to You”. It’s really hard to cover everything from the beginning. So it means we have to leave out some songs. We can’t just keep adding songs. It’s great when people say “how about doing this one or that one” so ok then, what will be taken out of the show then?”

All at FANCORE our already pumping our fists in triumph at the possibility of hearing ‘Crazy Nights’ or ‘God Gave Rock & Roll To You’, but what about the rest of you? Do you want those in the setlist or do you have other ideas?

After bagging ‘Best New Festival’ at the annual festival awards, Sonisphere have announced that the festival will be returning for 2010, extending to a three day event and boasting a mighty impressive line up.

Iron Maiden and Rammstein are confirmed as headliners for the Knebworth festival, with Alice Cooper, Slayer, Anthrax, Iggy and The Stooges, The Cult and Motley Crue also on the bill. With Metallica announcing a headline slot for Sonisphere in Poland, the thrash legends are heavily rumoured to be the third headliner for the UK dates.

The full statement from the festival organisers is as follows:

“Alice Cooper, Anthrax, The Cult, Iggy & The Stooges and Slayer will be making their only UK festival appearances at Sonisphere whilst Motley Crue will perform their only UK show of 2010.Tickets are currently on sale. Other bands heavily rumoured have ranged from Heaven and Hell to Foo Fighters, keep up to date with all your festivals here at FANCORE. Will you be buying tickets?

Slayer will make their welcome return to a festival stage in the UK after a three year absence at Knebworth with fellow ‘big four’ thrash kings Anthrax returning with John Bush back in the fold.

Guitarist Scott Ian says: “God-damn we couldn’t be more thrilled about being a part of Sonisphere 2010!!!! We are still buzzing from our insane show at Knebworth last summer and are drooling over the fact that we are a part of this history making festival!! What an amazing Xmas present for Anthrax and our fans. See you all very soon!!”

Flying in from LA for their only UK show of 2010, Motley Crue will be bringing with them their sleaze-drenched rock with The Cult also making an exclusive UK festival appearance and having marked England’s place on the global rock map, they remain one of the few UK hard-rock bands to have truly broken in the US. Talking of legends, Iggy & The Stooges are also sure to make their presence felt at Knebworth this summer!

Sonisphere is set to be an even bigger monster in 2010, with the extra day of music added. Friday 30th July will see the festivities getting started with a Rocky Horror Show theme, and Alice Cooper – the godfather of theatrical rock – suitably closing the evening on the Saturn stage at his only UK festival performance of 2010.

Fancy dress is expected and encouraged. In addition to the acts on Saturn, there will be bands performing on two tented stages from 6pm until 11pm.

Regular campers will have access to the campsite from 12pm on the Friday, but for a mere £5, the festival campsite will open for early campers at 3pm on Thursday 29th July, with Bohemia village open from 6pm Thursday right through until 3am Sunday morning, for non-stop fun with white knuckle rides, dodgems, arcades, comedy, massage, bars, market stalls, and cafes to chill out in.

There is much more to come with dozens more bands to be announced in the new year – metal, rock, hardcore, thrash, classic, indie, punk, you name it, Sonisphere will have it. From well-established rock icons to the hottest new names, if they rock and are worth seeing, they will be playing at Knebworth.”
