Boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder…


KISS committed the ultimate onstage blunder during a show in Vienna when saying farewell to a crowd of nearly 10,000 people.

By all accounts, the band’s Austrian show was going great, right up until its final moments when the screens behind them displayed “KISS loves you Vienna” with the Australian flag backing their logo.

As expected, social media is having a field day, with images of the confusing combo making the rounds like wildfire.

“KISS says ‘G’Day’ to all of you here in Vienna!!! Throw another shrimp on the schnitzel!!” one Aussie tweeted, adding that they were “idiots”.

“Whoopps! Big #SpinalTap blooper moment for rock band #KISS last night. They played in Vienna, AUSTRIA,” tweeted another.

Unsurprising, it wasn’t acknowledged in their post-show thanks online.
