Last night, SooToday.com reported that City Council's support for a KISS concert at the Essar Centre appeared to be "unanimous."
Declaring KISS to be "the hottest band in the world," Council encouraged Saultites to go to Kissonline.com and vote for our city in the first-ever fan-routed tour.
As of 7:55 a.m. today, 8,231 votes had been cast for the Sault, which ranked third in the contest to determine which North American cities will be included in the upcoming KISS tour.
Oshawa is second with 9,189 demands and first-place Winnipeg has 10,268.
We were wrong, however, about last night's City Council vote being unanimous.
We received the following note and YouTube.com link from Ward 2 Councillor Susan Myers:
************************* Hi David: I was the only one opposed; strongly opposed.
I would be sick at heart to see this kind of performance come to our city.
Can we not offer our citizens something that is joyful and uplifting vs. sick and revolting as so clearly depicted in this YouTube video of Gene Simmons' farewell tour?
