Former KISS Guitarist Making His Way Back Down Under In May

Bruce Kulick, KISS' lead guitarist for 12 years, is making his way back to Australia for a nationwide tour in support of his soon-to-be-released solo album, "Transformer".

In February 2002, Bruce performed his first-ever solo concerts in Melbourne and Sydney to sell out audiences. KISS' die-hard fans got a unique chance to get up close with one of their idols as Bruce and his band whipped through a two-hour show of classic and rare KISS songs from the era when Kulick was in the band — 1984 to 1996 — performing many songs KISS to this day have never performed live.

Due to the great success of the last tour, Bruce is returning in May to perform four concerts in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney.

After each show, Bruce will conduct a signing session for all fans, who will get a chance to meet and greet the guitar player that helped KISS write and sell over 15 million albums and perform hundreds of sell out shows all over the world during their "unmasked" era.

Kulick has also recorded and toured with such luminaries as MEAT LOAF, MICHAEL BOLTON, BILLY SQUIRE and GRAND FUNK RAILROAD and is a renowned session player in Los Angeles. He is endorsed by both ESP Guitars and Marshall Amplifiers. Bruce is a true guitar hero and KISS fan or not, fans will be blown away with his fretwork.

Bruce's band on this coming tour will again be all-Australian and the same line up of Vince Contarino (ZEP BOYS), Paul Drennan (STAND), Stephen Crafter (STAND) and Matthew MacAuliffe (STAND) will join him onstage for two hours of madness.
