Chideo And KISS Partner To Raise Funds For Augusta Warrior Project

Chideo Provides Fans Insider Access to KISS 2014 Summer Tour through VIP Sweepstakes, Exclusive Video Content

LOS ANGELES – JULY 31, 2014 – Chideo, the first interactive charity broadcast network, has partnered with rock legends KISS for a summer-long promotion that not only connects fans with their favorite band in new and exciting ways, but is also generating support for American military veterans.

Fans of KISS who register on Chideo’s website or download the Chideo App (available for iOS and Android) and then donate to the August Warrior Project will gain access to exclusive sweepstakes, behind-the-scenes video content, and other opportunities to get up close and personal with Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and the other band members. The promotion, which kicked off earlier this month, ends August 31 in Houston on the final stop of the KISS 2014 Summer Tour.

“Chideo is an amazing new model for musicians like us to support the causes we care about,” Simmons said. “The platform makes it fun and easy and fun for fans to donate and make a difference. Working together, I know we can accomplish great things for men and women who have served our country so honorably.”
Highlights of the Chideo and KISS charity partnership include:

·         KISS 40th Anniversary Tour VIP Experience sweepstakes – Fans can enter to win two tickets to the band’s last stop in Houston on August 31, a backstage tour, photo opp with the band, hotel accommodations, airfare and transportation. (Deadline to enter is 11:59 p.m. on August 13, 2014.)

·         An interactive in-concert experience at each stop on the tour, which gives KISS a chance to share why they support Augusta Warrior Project and concert goers an opportunity to immediately download and donate from their mobile devices.

·         KISSTERIA Ultimate Vinyl Road Case sweepstakes – Fans can enter for a chance to win a limited-edition collection of 34 KISS LPs valued at $1,750. The set includes 19 studio albums, five “Alive” releases and their four solo albums pressed onto audiophile 180g vinyl for the first time since as far back as 1985. Also included are six exclusive vinyl albums not available via any other offering.

·         Exclusive video documenting and celebrating the band’s recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, including a ride in the car with Gene Simmons and his family as they make their way to the ceremony, a behind-the-scenes visit with Paul Stanley at a book signing in New Jersey, and more never-before-seen footage produced on the road during the tour.
