KISS helped bring live music back to New York City with a fiery five-song set at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival in Battery Park. The legendary band performed after a screening of their upcoming A&E documentary Biography: KISStory on Friday night (June 11th).
The band brought out the pyro as they entertained the film festival crowd with an outdoor concert that opened with “Detroit Rock City” and also included “Shout It Out Loud”, “War Machine”, and “Heaven’s on Fire”, before closing out with the classic “Rock and Roll All Nite”.
“We don’t have a permit to make a long show,” said singer-guitarist Paul Stanley before the last song. “So this is a little short. It’s like a sampling before you get your big meal in August.”
With that line, Stanley confirmed that KISS will indeed kick off their rescheduled farewell tour dates on August 18th in Mansfield, Massachusetts. The U.S. leg runs through an October 6th show in Lafayette, Louisiana, with tickets available via Ticketmaster and StubHub.
Biography: KISStory will premiere on A&E as a two-night, four-hour program airing June 27th and 28th at 9 p.m. ET each night.
