Dallas / Ft. Worth, TX Metroplex devotees of the TV series "Supernatural" have reason to celebrate September 21st through the 23rd. The Winchester Brothers are coming home to Texas for a visit. Texas natives Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) and Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester) headline Creation Entertainment's Salute to "Supernatural" this weekend at the Westin Park Central Hotel (12720 Merit Dr., Dallas, TX 75251).
You would think that a band of rock veterans with nothing to prove would give themselves a break and coast through their live show in 100+ degree weather. Any other band might, but not KISS. Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, and Tommy Thayer descended on a platform from the rafters of the Gexa Energy Pavilion blazing on their guitars and never let up for almost two hours. Drummer Eric Singer feverishly pounded away behind them as they opened the show with audience favorite "Detroit Rock City."
I know what you're thinking. "KISS being written about on a movie website again? What gives?" Let's be honest. KISS has not only starred in their own movie and comic books as superheroes, but their live concerts visually rival anything we see in theaters.
When it comes to rock 'n roll or pure spectacle, nobody does it better than KISS. The band is still going strong 39 years after founding members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons released their first self-titled album. They are presently touring with Motley Crue playing classic songs from their 19 album discography. A new track entitled Hell or Hallelujah is also among the tunes on the set list. It's a teaser of what's to come when their upcoming release, Monster, comes out on October 16, 2012.
