Kiss To Play Acoustic Concert A Week Before Hall of Fame Induction
After a period dominated by squabbles over the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it’s time for Kiss to unplug — literally. They’ll play a rare acoustic show a week before their controversial induction ceremonies, offering stripped-down Kiss favorites and telling stories sans makeup.
Called ‘An Acoustic Evening and Stories with Kiss,’ the show mimics their memorable ‘MTV Unplugged’ episode of some 20 years ago. The concert will take place at the San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino in Highland, Calif. on April 3 — which also falls two days before the first-ever home game for the L.A. Kiss, the new arena football team that’s partially owned by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.
Cameras from AMC will be on hand to film the casino show for the upcoming reality show centered around the football team’s inaugural season. Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 28, via Ticketmaster and at the box office in San Manuel.
Kiss will join the Rock Hall on April 10, but announced this week that it will not perform after getting into a dispute with organizers over who would be part of their induction.
