KISS Promotes Dynasty Tour With Appearance On Chicago's WLS Radio; Rare 1979 Audio Unearthed

After recently moving, Michael Brandvold (Three Sides Of The Coin Podcast) opened up boxes he had in storage for decades, including one box filled with cassette tapes. They are slowly being digitized to share with everyone.

Below is an interview with Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Paul Stanley on WLS radio September 21, 1979 in support of the Dynasty tour.

KISS brought their decades-long career to a close on December 2 with a final show at Madison Square Garden in New York. YouTube used Deborah Vaughn has shared an emotional aftershow interview with Gene Simmons, which can be viewed below.

In the wake of the final show of their career, KISS shared a video clip along with the following message:

"The end is only the beginning. KISS have been immortalized and reborn as avatars to rock forever. Get exclusive access to the full story, including behind-the-scenes material and the making of the avatars, and be part of the New Era only on"

KISS made the announcement they would continue as digital avatars at the end of their final show. After the band left the stage, the virtual KISS performed "God Gave Rock And Roll To You". Check out the fan-filmed video below.

Paul Stanley: "What we've accomplished has been amazing, but it's not enough. The band deserves to live on because the band is bigger than we are. It's exciting for us to go the next step and see KISS immortalized."

Gene Simmons: "We can be forever young and forever iconic by taking us to places we've never dreamed of before. The technology is going to make Paul jump higher than he's ever done before."

The KISS avatars were created by ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) and financed / produced by Pophouse Entertainment, who are responsible for the ABBA Voyage show taking place in London. Pophouse Entertainment was co-founded by ABBA's Björn Ulvaeus.
