Kiss to Perform Makeup Free at Rare Acoustic Performance

Kiss will be going barefaced – completely makeup-free – for an upcoming acoustic show in California this April.

Kiss: An Acoustic Evening and Stories With Kiss will feature the band in all its glory, performing classic songs and sharing stories with the crowd.

Tickets for the show are priced from $65 to $75 and are scheduled to go on sale this Friday (Feb 28th) at 11 AM via Ticketmaster. In addition, because it’s Kiss and we all know any stories they have to share won’t exactly be PG-13, you must be 21 years or older to be able to attend the concert.

The show will take place on Thursday, April 3rd at San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino in Highland, California.

In other Kiss related news, fans are outraged as Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley have recently announced that no members of Kiss will be performing at the April 10th Rock And Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in New York.

The devastating news came after Ace Frehley let the cat out of the bag by telling fans that Simon and Stanley refuse to play with neither he nor Peter Criss.

To fill the gap Simmons and Stanley have opted for dressing up the current members of Kiss guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer as Frehley and Criss’ on stage personas instead.

When Simmons was asked on The Pulse of Radio what it felt like looking into the faces of what looked like his former bandmates, he had this to say:

“Y’know, we still have a tug of the heart. It’s like your drunken dysfunctional father who was a bum and you finally had to get rid of him — but you still remember the beginning when he was a good dad. Ace and Peter are beloved, as they should be, for the beginning. For helping launch the band — if you don’t mind me saying so — that changed the face of rock ‘n roll, literally and figuratively speaking. But equally as important part of the beginning of Kiss, it’s also important to know that with them in the band today, Kiss wouldn’t be around.”
