By on February 21, 2018

One of Gröna Lunds most legendary concerts throughout the times was when Kiss stood on the Big Stage 1976. Now, 42 years later, we get the chance to welcome back one of the world’s most famous bassists. On June 2, we are proud to present Gene Simmons Band on Grönan’s Big Stage.

It was a big gamble by former program director Ove Hahn, when he booked a make-up metal band from America in 1976. Nowadays that concert with Kiss at the Big Stage is considered one of Tivoli’s most legendary gigs. In the summer of 2010, we got to see Gene Simmons as a guest at Tivolit, when he was in the crowd to see Deathstars play on the Little Stage. But now, 42 years after the legendary concert, Gene Simmons returns to tivoli’s scene. Although he is still playing with Kiss, he has also run solo projects beside and June 2 at 20.00, we are ready to welcome Gene Simmons Band to Gröna Lund’s Big Stage.

– He is undoubtedly one of the greatest legends in the metal rock genre and he has written songs that goes to rock history. This year it’s 42 years since he played with Kiss on the Big Stage, so it’s great fun that we can offer the audience on Gene Simmons Band this summer, says Johan Tidstrand, Gröna Lund owner.
