VIDEO: KISS rock private set at Florida meet & greet

KISS and Motley Crue kicked off their summer co-headlining tour of North America recently in Virginia.

With both bands putting on headlining sets - each with their own massive staging elements - it was only a few shows in to the trek that they realized the amount of set-up time needed to put on such a huge production.

At the tour’s third date, in Raleigh, NC, KISS changed their daily schedule to accommodate the staging issues by skipping soundcheck to allow the road crew sufficient time to prepare the event; instead, the band played a private set during the pre-show meet & greet – watch it here.

The reaction from the fans, crew and the band themselves was so positive that this experience has been made a permanent part of the Meet & Greet for the summer tour.

KISS will perform a "private" set each evening for fans instead of a soundcheck, and they did it again on Friday in West Palm Beach, Florida before their show at the Cruzan Amphitheatre.

KISS rocked a five-song set, including “Calling Dr. Love,” “Hard Luck Woman,” “Goin’ Blind,” “Hotter Than Hell” and “Nothin’ To Lose.”
