Iconic Helsinki Railway Statues Adorned With KISS Masks

As a promotion for tonight's (Thursday, May 4) KISS concert in Helsinki, Finland, the towering, iconic four granite statues at the entrance of the city's Central railway station have been adorned with the group's face-painted masks. The huge, lamp-holding statues at the entrance of station are now wearing KISS face masks which were painted by four local fans.

The fans won the chance to paint the large masks through cooperation with state railway company VR, Helsinki's Radio Rock and the local KISS fan club.

The masks will be removed the day after the concert, VR said.

KISS vocalist and guitarist Paul Stanley was so impressed with the promotion, he posed for a picture and posted it on Twitter with the caption: "At the Helsinki train station. Size counts! Such an honor."

KISS kicked off its month-long "KissWorld" tour Monday night (May 1) at the Olympijskiy Stadium in Moscow, Russia and has European dates scheduled through May 31 at London's O2 Arena.
