Marilyn Manson Protesters Target Kiss

Feb. 24 [18:00 EST] -- The Kiss reunion tour's planned visit to Wheeling, West Virginia's Civic Center on March 27 will apparently inspire the same sort of protest that greeted Marilyn Manson's show there a mere 10 days ago. That's fitting since Manson himself has said that Kiss was a major influence on him.

Kathleen O'Connor of the American Family Association got 300 people to an alternative gospel-and-prayer rally, and 75 others to protest outside the civic, when Manson played there February 15.

She says she plans a similar reception for Kiss, who have no comment.
