Art Deco met Heavy Metal in Finland this week when the Men of Rock at the Helsinki Central Railway Station were transformed into Kiss Faces!
What? I went to Helsinki and forgot to write a post about my weekend there? I did remember to write about my journey and flight to Finland (see, A Weekend in Finland: Getting to Helsinki – Fire on the JFK Airtrain, Finnair Flight AY006 & a Train to the City) as well as my stay at an awesome Radisson Blu Hotel (see, A Weekend in Finland: I Ate Reindeer and had a Sauna in my Room! Hotel Review: Radisson Blu Plaza Helsinki). Well, I’ll share my photos and stories about that weekend very soon, but first I must share this:
KISS TOOK HELSINKI OVER BY STORM THIS WEEK!
This is what the Helsinki Central Railway Station looked like when I visited in March:
I love the Men of Rock!
This is what the Railway Station looked like yesterday – as a tribute to KISS who was performing in concert last night in Helsinki!
As noted in the press release, “the gigantic rock statues, in front of the Helsinki Central railway station, ironically called “the four men of rock”, got their own KISSmasks.”
Talk about icons meeting icons!
