Video: KISS Perform on The Tonight Show

by Rob Slater on April 12, 2014

Although they elected not to perform at their own Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, KISS visited The Tonight Show to perform for Jimmy Fallon, who didn't care which lineup showed up. The host carved out space in his old studio where he filmed Late Night to transform it into a full-blown concert hall fit for KISS and about 200 of their fans. The band tore through several songs, four of which you can watch below. They played "King of the Nighttime World" for the broadcast and then hung around to play "Hotter Than Hell," "Firehouse" and "Black Diamond" complete with pyro, confetti and all the Gene Simmons tongue flashes anyone could need.

KISS concludes a heavy music lineup for The Tonight Show this week, as most musicians participating in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame came to town early to visit Jimmy Fallon. Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, Stevie Nicks, Cat Stevens and KISS all made appearances throughout the week, including a special performance from Nas and Q-Tip as Illmatic celebrates its 20th anniversary. Check out KISS' performances below.

“...KISS visited The Tonight Show to perform for Jimmy Fallon, who didn’t care which lineup showed up…”

Since you article didn’t elaborate any further than that, I assume that the lineup that was inducted to the Hall was NOT the lineup that performed at the Tonight Show.

Booo….
