LICENSED KISS CITY AND THEME PICKS

Beginning in 2010, KISS entered into a licensee agreement with Exit 215 Productions LLC dba Kiss Pick World to design, produce and sell their picks. In addition to the common tour picks, limited edition picks were also produced. Each limited edition pick is limited to quantities of 200. This page is dedicated to those limited edition picks. KISS changed their merchandise licensing from Signatures Network to Epic Rights in 2014. So at the end of 2014, the unsold stock to that point was returned per contract to the band. In 2015, a new licensee, Dead Tentacle LLC was created for Kiss Pick World to enter into a new contract with Epic Rights.

From 2010 Sonic Boom through 2012 The Tour, the band had a very small quantity of these placed at the bottoms of the booms on their microphone stands and chucked a few into the crowd each night when they came out for their encore bows. Starting with the 2012 Monster tour, they created 1 city pick per show and a set of country picks for each country they visited. There were inconsistencies due to logistics, so they were placed on mic stands at some shows but not placed on the mic stands at other shows. Commemorative and theme night picks continue to be made for the KISS Kruises each year due to demand.
 

Collectors should be aware ALL of the 2010 picks (both Sonic Boom and Hottest Show) were bootlegged in the UK and Germany in large quantities. There are some "tells", but high quality photos and a trained eye is needed to be able to tell them apart. You can find some comparisons and analysis on the Fakes page.
