KISS and Juliette Lewis tonight (Aug. 28)

Posted By on Sat, Aug 28, 2010 at 10:58 AM

KISS You can't ever have enough farewell tours. The make-up laden rock stars visit the Q.C. one more time with a slightly different line-up. Gone are original guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss, and as far as Gene Simmons is concerned — easily replaced by Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. A Kiss fanatic should still relish the thought of seeing Simmons pound his ax-like bass guitar through "God of Thunder" and Paul Stanley shake his old hips and stratocaster while belting out "Detroit Rock City." The simplistic and overplayed "Rock 'n' Roll All Night" will inevitably be played as well, whether fans want to hear it or not. $36.50 and up, Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, (Chris Triplett)




JULIETTE LEWIS More often than not, it's hard to take Hollywood types seriously when they venture into the music world. Not the case with Juliette Lewis. Imagine the raw energy of her characters taken into the spotlight on stage, her gruff voice intact in all of its howling glory. Lewis used to rock with her band The Licks, but these days, she's getting billed solo. Who cares — if you're headed to the show, it's Lewis you want to see, regardless of who's backing her up. Get ready, this is no act. $32, Don Gibson Theatre, Shelby, (Jeff Hahne)
