Our Vinnie Vincent Meet & Greet Experience!!!

On october 30th we had our Vinnie Vincent Meet & Greet Experience in Miami!!!

This was 1 day before we went sailing with KISS on the KISS Kruise VIII. The event took place at the Holliday Inn hotel and this was easy for us because we stayed there, lol. Also there was a special Vinnie Vincent Pink Cup for sale and of course we bought it. At 9 AM we got in line to get all our stuff, like laminates, poster & goodie bags.

First we'll get our photo taking with Vinnie and as all you can see, they turned out great! We knew that he would wear make-up and that was so special because he had not done that for decades. When it was our time to get our photo with him he was very nice to us. Asked where we from and took all the time for us!
When all the fans got their photo's taking, it was time to get our items get signed by Vinnie. The first item we got signed was our Wedding License and he was very humble to sign it too, especially when he saw that all other KISS members had signed it (Except Ace Frehley) he never has signed such a item before, he told us.
Our signed Wedding license!

Next up he signed our Lick It Up vinyl, that I bought the day it was released in 1983.

Of course we had let him sign the Vinnie Vincent Invasion vinyl!

The last item he signed for us was this Vinnie Vincent EP CD!
All the time he was very chatty to us and we got all the time with him. All we can say is that we had a great time meeting Vinnie and it was so cool to see him in make-up! We had a awesome experience!

Later that night we went to the KISS Kruise VIII pre-party in the Hanger, a 15 minutes walk from our hotel. It was sold out because Vinnie would play on his guitar on 2 songs with the band Four By Fate (with John Regan & Tod Howarth, ex-Frehley's Comet members!) This was the first time since decades that Vinnie would take the stage and perform live! Besides Vinnie as very special guest, there were other guests too, like Big John Harte, Lydia Criss, Bob Kulick & Ken Kelly. Finally it was time for Vinnie to take the stage after he was announced and from that moment the place went nuts, Vinnie, Vinnie, Vinnie is all we could here that fans were yelling. The first song was Lick It Up and we must say it was so cool to see Vinnie in make-up playing his guitar since such a long time!
Here's our video:

The second song was I Love It Loud and we had a blast to see him perform.
Here's our video:

After these 2 songs the fans want more and keep chearring Vinnie's name. So we got a third song: Cold Gin! For us it didn't matter that he didn't play his guitar as he used to play way back. This was a moment in KISStory that maybe never will be happen again!
We had a great night and what better way to get on board of the KISS Kruise VIII the next day?
Here's a selection of our photo's:
