New KISS Costumes for the MONSTER Tour?
Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer have been talking about it in the press. Now, there is a post on http://www.kissfaq.com/ hinting that Gene's new costume will be different than he's worn before. Gone will be the armor and a new costume will be based on his new "Monster-like" basses and the return of Sam T. Serpent (so to speak) who graced Gene's side stage on the Love Gun and Alive II tours respectively. No Sam T. is not coming back but his costume will be based on the idea.
It appears the Kiss will be pulling out all the stops with the new album, Monster, the massive world tour with a technologial advanced new stage and show, the BIG book (is it the book Ken Sharp's been working on?), DVD (Kisstory 4?) and new costuming. 2012-2013 is set to be a Kiss fan's year!
The post goes on to say that the serpent like look will wrap around his upper section as part of his costume.
Let's hope the dragon boots will stay! And Internet rumor regarding the return of the Dynasty costumes are just that...rumor.
