Rock music fans are in for a treat.
Coming Friday, Jan. 31, to Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe is the band Kix, with special guest Autograph.
The concert gets underway at 8 p.m. Tickets are $22 in advance and $27 at the door.
In 1981, Kix debuted with a self-titled album "KIX," featuring "Atomic Bombs," "Heartache," "Contrary Mary", "The Itch," and "The Kid."
"Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" instantly became a concert favorite.
"KIX Are for Kids" creatively merged the name of the band with two popular cereals of the 1960s and 1970s, KIX (that featured an atomic bomb commercial) and the Trix Rabbit (i.e., "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!").
"Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" became the band's most popular concert song, always with a unique ad-lib performance by Whiteman. With this album, the tongue-in-cheek rock & roll style of KIX was established.
Since then KIX has been performing more and more shows at festivals, casinos and biker rallys across the country, impressing promoters and fellow musicians with their top notch and highly entertaining performances while driving home their status as one of rocks truly legendary live acts.
As the demand from the fans for new KIX music has never subsided and in fact has only increased over the last few years, band members have decided that they can no longer ignore the overtures from the fans and are writing new KIX songs for a new album due out on Frontiers Records in 2013.
