IF you're a fan of Kiss, (and if you're not, I'm referring to that band with the black and white make up and the tongues), then you might be pleased to know a screening of which promises to be the "cinema event of the year" - for Kiss fans at least - is coming to Southend for one night only.

Being launched by MusicScreen in association with Eagle Rock Entertainmnet, the Kiss Rocks Vegas movie features the band founded by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, on their Las Vegas residency at the Hard Rock Hotel in xxx plus interviews and exclusive footage reserved only for the cinema screenings.

Their sensational live performances feature fire breathing, blood-spitting, smoking guitars, shooting rockets, levitating drum kits, and pyrotechnics. Tommy Thayer (lead guitar, vocals) and Eric Singer (drums, percussion, vocals) complete lineup.

Tommy - who is also producer of Kiss Rocks Vegas, said: "We are all tremendously proud of this production; it captures a truly unique performance. You need to see it in a cinema to get the full on experience”

The local screening takes place at the Odeon, Southend, for one night only on Wednesday May 25.
