Preview: KISS plans monthlong rock parties at first Hard Rock residency

Three Nellis Air Force Base servicemen will be up-front heroes with legendary rockers KISS at the premiere tonight of the group’s first-ever mini-residency in the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer will kick off the nearly monthlong (through Nov. 23) loud, raucous rock parties with an over-the-top Maverick Helicopters arrival.

Once the iconic rockers land in their Las Vegas-headquartered Maverick Helicopter, they’ll pose for photographs with Hard Rock’s Entertainment VP Chas Smith and concert promoter AEG’s Las Vegas booking chief Bobby Reynolds.

Alongside will be the “roadies” for the first week of shows from Nellis AFB: Master Sgt. Jason Borkhuis, Sgt. First Class Cory DeMille of the U.S. Army Reserve and Technical Sgt. Richard Reichert.

The new KISS roadies won the dream job in a contest sponsored by the group. The brave trio has a total of 60-plus years of highly decorated service. Other Nellis personnel will be roadies in upcoming weeks.

They’ll work closely with the KISS crew and the band’s VIP program for a total of three shows each for their designated week. They are guests of the Hard Rock during their duties. Each roadie will create a video and photo diary to keep as a memento from the week.
