might not be playing the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
, but that hasn't stopped the band from putting on a retrospective celebration of their own.
reports, the group has announced an acoustic show without make-up exactly one week before the Rock Hall ceremony.
The concert is billed as "An Acoustic Evening and Stories With Kiss"
and will take place at the San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino in Highland, California. The set up for the show is reportedly "not unlike"
the MTV Unplugged
episode that the band filmed 20 years ago. KISS has also utilized the format at KISS conventions. There is no word yet as to whether the band will be joined by any former members at the acoustic evening. Paul Stanley
and Gene Simmons
caused controversy last weekend when they announced that no line-up of the band would perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on April 10th. That statement followed news that original KISS members Ace Frehley
and Peter Criss
were told that they would not be allowed to perform at the event.
