The first Dayton KISS Fan Expo was a huge success as hundreds of fans from as far away as Mexico and Canada gathered to celebrate their love for KISS! Fans spent over 8 hours visiting, shopping for collectibles and making new KISS friends.

Paul Stanley drummer Nate Morton made his first ever Expo appearance and judging from the crowd's response - this won't be his last. Nate spent the entire day greeting fans, signing autographs and posing for photos as he answered questions one on one. He was very accessible and friendly, and genuinely seemed to be enjoying himself . Nate even held an impromptu and unplanned drum clinic before his Q & A. He spoke highly of his time with Mr. Stanley and informed the crowd that DYNASTY was the first album he ever owned.

Kid drumming sensation and KISS fan – Angelo Coppola performed an energetic drumming performance of KISS & Paul Stanley tracks before being joined by the members of MR. SPEED (sans makeup) for a few songs. Later in the day MR. SPEED, in full costume and makeup, closed the Expo with a rockin’ set including KISS rarities such as “The Oath”, “Love Theme from KISS” and "Rocket Ride”!

All in all another great day for KISS fans. These events are so much like a family reunion and really a great way to celebrate being a KISS Fan!
