From a 1975 show at the Sahara Space Center to the mini golf course that bears the band’s name today, Kiss has had a long relationship with Las Vegas. The Hard Rock Hotel announced the latest chapter today—a nine-show November mini-residency at the Joint.

Kiss, whose original foursome was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April, will bring makeup, pyro, blood and hits like “Rock and Roll All Nite,” “Detroit Rock City” and “Shout It Out Loud” to the stage November 5, 7, 8, 12, 14, 19, 22 and 23. Prices begin at $49.50, with tickets on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

The band’s current lineup features founders Paul Stanley (Starchild) and Gene Simmons (The Demon), along with guitarist Tommy Thayer, who has been with the group since 2002, and drummer Eric Singer, whose third stint with Kiss began in 2004.

Kiss’ Joint booking—titled Kiss Rock Vegas—follows multi-show runs in the same venue by Mötley Crüe, Guns N’ Roses and Def Leppard.
