KISS To Bring “Freedom To Rock Tour” To State College August 30

State College wanted the best, and now it’s getting the best.

Be ready for a Crazy, Crazy Night when legendary rock band KISS returns to the BJC for the fourth time on August 30 as part of its “Freedom to Rock Tour.” Nothing Can Keep KISS From Us it seems — the Hottest Band in the World played in Happy Valley in 1997, 1998, and 2000.

Tickets start at $39.50 and run as high as $125. They’ll be on sale on Friday, April 15 at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster and at the usual outlets — BJC, Eisenhower, HUB, and Downtown Theatre. If you have Nothing To Lose, make sure you Strut(ter) to the box office in person. You may even be lucky enough to find a Hard Luck Woman named Beth selling the tickets to you. There’s no word on student discounts as of now, but UPAC Was Made For Loving Us, so a discount may be announced in the next few days.

The start time hasn’t been set for the show yet, but the band members are Creatures of the Night. They’ll surely want to Rock and Roll All Nite, so get your Cold Gin ready.

Be warned, KISS Loves It Loud. If you are sensitive to loud noises, we recommend you Call Dr. Love. He Will Be There to help you find a solution to your problem and Shout It Out Loud for you to hear.

No telling if the band will cool down its Hotter Than Hell temperature to make its way to the Creamery, but if Gene Simmons gets his hands on a cone, we’re sure he’ll Lick It Up.

Alumni, What State College Bar/Restaurant Would You Bring Back Downtown?

Do you yearn for cigarette ash-dusted grilled cheeses from “quintessential shithole” Grillers? Or a night out at G-Man with your old frat bros? Or have evenings of drinking felt incomplete ever since Canyon moved across Beaver and got rid of its sticky blue picnic tables?
