The band Kiss attracted a record-breaking crowd at Ottawa's Bluesfest Wednesday night.
Around 30,000 music fans came out to the Bluesfest stage to take in the glitz and pyrotechnics of the well-known, makeup wearing rockers.Shannon Tweed, former Ottawa resident and partner of Kiss rock star Gene Simmons, was one of a record number of fans who turned out at the band's Bluesfest show.

They may not have rock-and-rolled all night — as one of their songs suggests — but the band started the show 45 minutes early to give concertgoers a whole two hours to rock out.
"Kiss is the best band in the world. Rock on Kiss!" said one concertgoer who came out to see the show.
"I see Joe Cocker, Jeff Beck — Kiss is the best band at Bluesfest."
Kiss's setup, said organizers, required a 50-member stage crew to put up the lights, aerial wires and pyrotechnics that made up Ottawa's biggest Bluesfest show.
