Concert Review: The big Kiss-off at PPL Center

Wednesday, February 5, 2020 by LORI PATRICK in Focus

“The End of the World” tour brought Kiss to PPL Center, Allentown, Feb. 4, for what’s billed as the group’s last concert tour.

“Rock and Roll all Night,” which concluded the concert, could have been the group’s first song to set the mood of what was to come.

It was a concert filled with fire, musicians at the top of their skill levels, video backdrop, light show and surprises to electrify the arena.

The fans, often referred to as the “Kiss Army,” did not disappoint. Many dressed in Kiss attire and full makeup.

At Night to Shine: every guest a king, queen

It surely was a Night to Shine during the Tim Tebow Foundation annual prom held Feb. 9 in churches around the world for persons with special needs. The Lehigh Valley host church was Riverbend Community Church on Roble Road in Allentown. Pastor Joe Velarde was the master of ceremonies.

This year 700 churches hosted the event. Emotions of pure joy were apparent the entire evening from the guests, cheering observers, caregivers, volunteers and businesses offering their services for free such as several photographers acting as paparazzi.
