US rockers KISS rolled out a warm welcome to 10,000 of their Austrian fans in Vienna over the weekend – with the Australian flag.
The band was about to perform their End Of The Road gig to a sold-out crowd at the Wiener Stadthalle in Vienna when the light projection displayed ‘KISS Love You Vienna’.
Trouble is, the word ‘KISS’ was overlayed with the Aussie flag, not the Austrian flag.

While it could be an easy mistake to make, it’s important to note that KISS’s lighting guy, Sean ‘Motley’ Hackett, is Australian.
Who knows, maybe they’ll even out the chi by displaying the Austrian flag at some point during their Aussie tour.
