VIDEO: KISS headline Mending Kids All-Star Benefit Concert

KISS headlined the Mending Kids All-Star Benefit Concert at The House Of Blues in Los Angeles on Friday, and video of the band’s full set is available.

KISS played a 6-song set which consisted of “Deuce”, “C'mon And Love Me”, “Cold Gin”, “Got To Choose”, “Let Me Go Rock And Roll” and “Rock And Roll All Night.”

Broadcast live on AXS TV and hosted by illusionist Penn Jillette, the sold-out event featured Tom Jones, Natasha Bedingfield, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Brenna Whitaker and her Little Big Band, and Vintage Trouble.

Founded in 2006, Mending Kids International has provided over 1500 free life-changing surgeries to children from 54 countries, including the United States. Mending Kids deploys renowned surgical teams on missions to developing countries, and brings children to Los Angeles, where they live with volunteer Host Families during advanced surgical care and recuperation.

Mending Kids' missions focus on providing pediatric surgical training to help local doctors build long-term sustainable surgical programs. Funding comes from donations and special events; 90% of every dollar goes to the surgical treatment of the children.

Friday’s event raised more than $5 million for the charity.

On April 10, KISS will be inducted into the Rock Hall along with Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt; the ceremony will be held at New York’s Barclays Center and HBO will record the event for broadcast in May.
