Perhaps you've been considering buying tickets to see classic-rockers KISS at the Spokane Arena, but you haven't pulled the trigger yet.
If you waited to decide to go see Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer (replacement Ace) and Eric Carr (replacement Peter), you were smart. The band is offering tickets today through July 5 for just $25 for their Freedom to Rock tour stopping in Spokane July 15.
The deal is available now through 10 am on Tuesday, July 5, and you can buy up to eight tickets at the $25 price. Just go to the TicketsWest site for the show and enter "FOURTH" in the box for promotional codes. You can also just go to the Spokane Arena box office to get the deal.

I've seen them a lot over the years — that photo is from a show two summers ago — and it's still a pretty good time, every time, for even a casual fan.
