VIDEO: KISS unplug for rare Rock And Roll Over track

KISS unplugged for An Acoustic Evening With performance at the San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino, in Highland, CA on Friday.

The band are sharing footage of the vintage 1976 “Rock And Roll Over” track, “Love ‘Em And Leave ‘Em”, marking its first live appearance since 2006.

KISS’ 20-song setlist featured 17 tracks from their classic 70s era alongside a pair of 80s tunes and a single track from the 90s.

“Like all things that we do, we do it only if we want to,” Gene Simmons tells The Press-Enterprise about the rare acoustic evening. “Sometimes it takes a lot of work. Sometimes it’s just seamless. Like when we do the Kiss cruises, it’s a lot of work. You’re talking, making sure every person gets personalized signed stuff, pose for photos with every person and do a few shows.

“Playing at San Manuel is seamless. You sort of get up and it feels like somebody’s in your living room, compared to the stadiums we play in. It’s easy and we get a chance to not worry about the pyrotechnics and technical stuff. It feels informal.”

KISS will next head to Australia and New Zealand for a series of shows in October.
