VIDEO: KISS unplug for Led Zeppelin and Beatles covers in Tokyo

KISS delivered covers of tunes by Led Zeppelin and The Beatles during an acoustic performance at a soundcheck for VIP ticket holders prior to their March 3 show at the Tokyo Dome in Japan.

The band played Zeppelin’s “You Shook Me” (originally recorded by Muddy Waters) and two Beatles songs – “If I Fell” and “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away” – alongside a selection of their own classics like “Hard Luck Woman”, “Calling Dr. Love” and "Beth."

“Biggest KISS Meet & Greet acoustic ever!”, reports the band. “Over 700 in attendance at Tokyo Dome!”

The March 3 stop was the final date of a Japanese tour by the band in support of the Japanese special edition of their greatest hits collection, “KISS 40.”

The package differs from the 2014 North American release with the addition of the band’s collaboration with Japanese pop idols Momoiro Clover Z, “Samurai Son”, plus a DVD featuring three songs filmed at the Budokan in Tokyo on October 24th, 2013.

KISS now move on to spend the month of April playing dates across South America.

KISS were recently named the No. 6 Rock News Artist Of The Year as part of the 5th annual hennemusic Rock News Awards.
