KISS perform at Tribeca Film Festival

KISS performed at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on June 11 following the screening of Part One of their new A&E documentary, “Biography: KISStory”, and fan-filmed video has surfaced online.

The band delivered a five-song set that included "Detroit Rock City", "Shout It Out Loud", "War Machine", "Heaven's On Fire" and "Rock And Roll All Nite."

“Biography: KISStory” chronicles the band’s five decades in the business as Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons reflect on their career, after forming the group in New York City in January of 1973 from the ashes of the pair’s previous band, Wicked Lester; the original lineup – which also featured guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss – were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2014.

The current KISS lineup sees guitarist Tommy Thayer perform using Frehley’s spaceman makeup and stage gear, while longtime drummer Eric Singer appears in Criss’ cat makeup and stage persona.

Directed by D.J. Viola and billed as “the definitive documentary”, the special will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the band’s rise to fame as seen through original recording sessions, home movies, behind-the-scenes stories and rare footage.

A&E will premiere "Biography: KISStory" with a two-night event on June 27 and June 28 from 9 p.m. ET to 11 p.m. ET.

KISS have just announced a series of rescheduled and new US concert dates for this fall.
