Tribute supergroup Kiss GB bring new stage show to Carlisle


THE songs of one of rock music's most iconic bands will be performed on stage in Carlisle this month.

Tribute supergroup Kiss GB appear at Embers rock bar on Saturday October 21 - their first appearance in the region.

Less than a third of the tickets remain for this all-action live show, where you can expect to hear the US giants' hits, such as Detroit Rock City, God Gave Rock 'n' Roll To You II, Crazy Crazy Nights, and Love Gun in the 90-minute set.

Kiss GB are relatively new to the tribute scene, but have already played G2 in Glasgow, the Buxton Rocks Festival, and a selection of some of the best clubs on the UK circuit.

The band was formed by Ash Brookes, co-founder of the world's longest running Kiss tribute Dressed to Kill, and widely known as one of the greatest tributes to Paul "Starchild" Stanley on the planet. The rest of the line-up comprises members of Led Zeppelin tribute Mothership and Van Halen tribute Eruption.

Following the recent packed-out Surreal Panther show at the venue, promoter Ryan Devlin of Target Rock is expecting the remaining tickets to be snapped up quickly.

He said: "We have sold a huge amount of advance tickets for this one and currently have less than 60 tickets available. Make sure to buy in advance to avoid disappointment.

"This promises to be a night you will never forget - get ready to be transported to the 80s and witness one of the world's finest tributes in action.

"I first saw Ash Brookes around seven years ago when Dressed to Kill played Legends in Newcastle, a rock bar sadly now closed down, and they completely blew me away!

"I couldn't believe the likeness, the show the voice, it all just fit perfectly. For 90 minutes I felt like I was watching the real Kiss in a small club - it was a crazy feeling."

Support for the show on Saturday 21 comes from West Cumbrian hard rockers Heartbreak Remedy and Carlisle punk covers act The Clints.

Doors open at 7.30pm, and tickets for this 18+ event are available from the Old Town Hall in Carlisle, or via
