VIDEO: Gene Simmons breathes fire during KISS show in St. Louis

KISS are streaming video of Gene Simmons breathing fire during the band’s September 1 show at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in St. Louis, MO.

The event is part of the latest North American leg of the group’s End Of The Road farewell tour, which originally opened in Vancouver, BC in late January and is expected to run for multiple years.

Just days before the tour launch, KISS issued a greatest hits collection, “KISSWORLD – The Best Of KISS”, for the first time in North America following a 2017 UK release; the project delivers a selection of 20 of the band’s classic tracks – with almost half from their 1970s heyday, including the 1976 US Top 10 hit, “Beth.”

KISS was co-founded in January of 1973 by Simmons and Paul Stanley from the ashes of the pair’s previous band, Wicked Lester; the group’s original lineup also featured guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss.
