Sacramento Rock City

The KISS ARMY was well represented in Sacramento, California on Sunday, as KISS brought the music, the stage show, and the makeup to the Capitol of California- for the Walk 'N Rock for Kids fundraiser benefit concert. KISS fans poured past the KISS Minis into Raley Field, and rocked the warm summer like evening, enjoying a bombastic spectacle, and supporting a great cause. Kids seemed to be a huge part of the audience, with many of them made up in makeup as their favorite rock heroes.

From Modern Day Delilah to Rock and Roll All Night, KISS filled the baseball stadium with guitars, drums, fire, and smoke. The Walk 'N Rock VIP fund raisers enjoyed up front tables, but everyone in the minor league venue had a great view.

The KISS Minis were parked at the venue's main gate, and later backstage. The stars of Family Jewels- Sophie, Nick, and Shannon- were also present, filming scenes and greeting fans down on the floor.

The show ended with a series of explosions ringing the Sacramento air. The KISS ARMY, especially the young ones present (and who the show was really about), will not forget the show anytime soon.
