MUNSTER | It finally happened! KISS is in!

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will induct KISS, along with Nirvana and Peter Gabriel on April 10 at the Barclays Center in New York.

Seventies Shock Rock Lords KISS, mesmerized fans for years with unforgettable tunes such as "Rock and Roll All Night," "Love Gun," "I Was Made For Loving You," "Detroit Rock City" and "God Gave Rock N' Roll To YOU," to name a few.

Influenced by early 70's acts such as Alice Cooper and the New York Dolls, KISS perfected the concert experience and took Rock n’ Roll to a whole new level with their outrageous pyrotechnics, shocking makeup and awe-inspiring stage antics.

“KISS is one of the most influential bands of all time,” said Emilio Lopez, KISS fan and avid concert-goer. “Even people that were not fans were still intrigued with their sound and stage presence.”

The ‘hottest show on earth’ still includes KISS co-founders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley and has added Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer to the tour since 2004.
