Legendary Rockers KISS Jet In To Adelaide To Rock Clipsal

LEGENDARY rockers KISS received a warm welcome from fans as they jetted into town this evening ahead of their Clipsal 500 concert.

Stanley said the band was ready to rock Adelaide after kicking off their tour in Perth last night.

"The show is amazing...there'll be lots of bombs and lots of lights, and great music spanning the whole career of the band," he said.

"We've got decades of decibels so we're going to be giving everybody exactly what they're expecting."

Simmons, who arrived with wife, actress Shannon Tweed, said he was excited to return to Adelaide for the first time since 2004.

"Adelaide is a terrific place, we've been here five or six times, we love it," he said.

"The food's great, the people are good, everything's really nice."

While the singers told AdelaideNow they were car racing fans, Stanley said they would use tomorrow's rest day to visit the city's famed wine regions.

"Adelaide is a fabulous city, we have to go to the Barossa Valley, check out all the great wines," Stanley said. KISS will perform at the Clipsal 500 after-race concert on Sunday.

They'll be joined on the main stage by rockers Motley Crue, who are expected to fly into
