I have tried to request the Sault on the Kiss web site but I don't think our city is in the database on the site for city requests as the closest I could get was North Bay.

I think the problem is BTCATKB syndrome.

Consider it done ;)

Already have emails into the local radio stations.

Remember, too, that this is a weighted vote, so a place like the Soo doesn't have to worry about competing with a Toronto, Chicago, or Detroit. They take into account the population as compared to the percentage of votes.

I hope this happens. But I do feel bad for the Greyhounds, as their home arena will be a smoldering ruin after The Hottest Band in the World invades our area.

the voting started several weeks ago .. but the msg hasn't really gotten out, i been voting many times everyday .. but now that sootoday got a hold of it, it is making news here, even AGgys lil cousin who is 11 knows about it, he wants me to take him.

if your gonna see 1 concert in your lifetime .. KISS is the show to see.

can only vote once per email ... i must have put in 100 votes today alone, and will work on it more until the voting stopped

if KISS does a real canadian tour which they havn't done since the 70's .. it should look like this ... VAncouver >> Calgary >> Edmonton >> Saskatoon >> Regina >> Winnipeg>> thunderbay >> Sault ste marie >> Toronto >> Ottawa >> Montreal

they are playing Halifax this summer for a one off show .. so not sure if they will return out there.

but that would be a pretty good canadian tour

BTCATKB = Between the Chair and the Keyboard?

No, no, my friend ... the correct IT terminology for all the average users who muck things up is:

PEBCAK = Problem exists between chair and Keyboard

Is there a site we can go to if we want to STOP them from coming here? :p

You just have to look at the age of the past two entertainers who were here (Young & Lightfoot) to start to wonder how many of the current crop of noise makers (sorry but I can't bring myself to call them artists as that would imply that rap is more than crap) will be around preforming when they reach an elderly age?

Somehow I doubt that Britney Spears et al will be a draw when they are in their 60's......or that their music will be remembered, recorded by numerous other singers,etc.Ones like Sheryl Crow and Sarah MacLachlan maybe but the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus???? Nope!!

I read the contest site and I did not see anywhere that size matters(at least not in this instance:D:prockon: ). Many acts like a mix of venues because they enjoy the different varieties of ambiance.

Even if the Essar Center is too small to hold such an event, the Kewadin would be more than suitable to hold this concert. As long as KISS comes here, all will be good.

It's a fall tour, so it's difficult to see how an outdoor show at Kewadin would work.

The Essar Center isn't too small because most bands do a two-tier tour. The first tier is when they hit the major markets (Det, LA, Tor, NY, Bos, etc). The second-tier is when they hit "secondary markets" (Boise, Memphis, Ottawa, Columbus, etc). And while the Soo, population-wise, isn't quite a secondary market, it still has an arena that could hold up to 5,000 people; and some of the attendance for bands at secondary markets are in the 5-8,000 mark in some cities.

I think Essar would have to guarantee 5,000 tickets sold in order for KISS to consider coming up here again. And they would get a profit based on 5,000, whether there are 5,000 people there, or 2,500. It's the promoter that must decide if the risk is worth it at that time.

That is why KISS had no problem coming to Soo, Michigan. They were given $850,000 up front. If only two people showed up for the show, well ,that was Kewadin's headache. It was already money in the bank for the band.
