2007 St. Louis KISS Expo Review

The first ever St. Louis KISS Fan Expo turned out to be an eventful day for all who attended! The Expo started out with KISS guitarist Tommy Thayer surprising the crowd by calling in to wish the fans a great day. Tommy took a few questions from the crowd and told them he was getting excited for the upcoming KISS shows. Next up special guest Bruce Kulick held a Q&A, and then treated the crowd to an unexpected guitar performance, which included the crowd favorite "Unholy". While the fans mingled and shopped for KISS Collectibles, Bruce spent the rest of the day in the ballroom - signing autographs and posing for photos - including one with Butch Berry. Butch, the son of the legendary rocker Chuck Berry, stopped by with his own son to see what a KISS Expo is all about. Bill Starkey Founder of the KISS Army fanclub in the 70s also did a Q/A with the fans and signed autographs.

Later in the afternoon director Louis Antonelli took the stage to introduce his Paul Stanley Live To Win Concert Film with the help of Mr. Stanley himself. Paul phoned in and told the crowd he was proud of the film and what Lou had accomplished. As the crowd chanted Paul, Paul, Paul - the lights were turned off and the preview began. For the next 30 minutes many in the crowd sang along and applauded as if they were actually at a live show. The preview included the film's trailer as well as the songs "Live To Win", "Got To Choose", "Tonight You Belong To Me", " Everytime I See You Around", "Do You Love Me" and "Love Gun".
