The night ends with a bang when Mr. Speed, KISS tribute band, hits the Public Square Stage at 8:00pm. The band played Rivers and Spires in 2011 and was a big hit with the crowd.

In a world where imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, few bands have as devoted a following as KISS. With nearly 20 years of experience under their spandex MR. SPEED continues to forge ahead writing their own chapter in KISStory.

Their passion for KISS is real. They believe in bridging the gap between KISS fans from the ’70’s and the new legions of the KISS Army. With a show combining a lot of the elements that are reminiscent of a KISS performance, and enough hits to go double platinum they bring you back to a time when lips everywhere were coming together in unison to welcome the hottest band in the world!
