KISS played a private show for veterans last week, giving out over 2,000 tickets. The show went down on July 19 at the Jiffy Lube Live arena in Bristow, Virginia.
KISS have also joined forces with Hiring Our Heroes, a campaign by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that serves to get veterans back into the workforce. KISS have enlisted a military veteran as one of their roadies for the upcoming trek, prompting Gene Simmons to comment that hiring veterans "is the most important thing that we can do."
After receiving over 1,900 applications for the job, Paul Jordan, an army serviceman from Buford, Georgia was chosen.
Jordan, who has devoted over 20 years to the military serving three voluntary tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, is a life-long KISS fan and member of the KISS Army who sports a tattoo of Simmons on his chest, according the band's official website.
