BRUCE KULICK is coming back to Australia armed with his first new solo album in five years – BK3 – and a brand new live show that promises to delve into the depths of material from his twelve year tenure with Kiss and his work in the last thirteen years as a solo artist. BK3 is Kulick’s third solo release, hence the title.
Australian fans will be among the first to hear the album, which will be released ahead of its worldwide debut at the concerts. BK3 features the soaring guitars and signature riffs that Kulick is known for, along with an array of special guests that include former KISS band mates Gene Simmons and Eric Singer, KNACK lead vocalist Doug Fielder, and Nick Simmons (Gene’s son and rising star in his own right) making his vocal recording debut.
Bruce promises the shows will be worth the wait and will feature a plethora of Kiss tunes from the eight albums he recorded with the band between 1984 and 1996. Hits like 'God Gave Rock and Roll To You II', 'Crazy Crazy Nights', 'Forever', and 'Tears Are Falling' will be nestled alongside many rarities never performed live by KISS themselves.
Kulick has become a regular in Australia, first visiting these shores in 1978 as part of MEAT LOAF’s Bat Out Of Hell band, with KISS in 1995, as part of ESP (a side project featuring members of ALICE COOPER’s band, KISS and MÖTLEY CRÜE), and several times as a solo artist. Most recently, he conducted a whirlwind guitar clinic tour, hitting four cities during a week in April 2009. For info Kulick.net .
