On the day that the campsites officially open their gates for the Download Festival 2008, organisers bring exciting news about its first headlining act of the weekend. KISS, who close the first day of the festival on Friday 13 June, have revealed that they are giving their fans the chance to take whole recordings of their shows home with them across their sell out European tour.
10 key dates have been selected – and one of these is Download! The KISS Live 2008 limited edition series CDs will be available soon after the last notes from KISS are ringing out across the arena.
