KISS – 10th Anniversary Tour Shirt by Tee Exclusives
Well I gave in again and picked up yet another KISS shirt so here I am posting about it. Non-media items usually don’t make their way onto In The Mail Today but I couldn’t help myself with this one. Recently I wrote about getting some KISS Shirts from Tee Exclusives, one of those sites that offers shirts on a countdown then once the order taking period is over they print only the stock that was pre-purchased and delete the design. I was pretty happy with them and when I saw this one come up I couldn’t resist grabbing it as well.
Call me a sucker but this design hits the nostalgia sweet spot for me. I love the Eric Carr and Vinnie Vincent era of KISS, especially this tour (10th Anniversary) and album (Creatures Of The Night). The stage design of the tank, the heaviness of the new songs and getting to see Eric and Vinnie live for the first time cured (almost) all the pain of losing original members Peter Criss and Ace Frehley. So I added one more to the already ridiculous number of KISS shirts in my collection.
That’s not to say I don’t have a good excuse for getting a new one, especially something that shows an often forgotten and rarely represented time in the band’s history like this. In a couple of weeks I will be heading to the mostly KISS related Nashville Rock-N-Pod Expo, plus seeing KISS themselves on tour in September, sailing on the Kiss Kruise in November and going to a Gene Simmons solo show as well. So I will be getting some good wear out of these shirts as I rock and roll all night (and party every day)!
