Looks like the band is throwing their own party...

KISS 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.

As HenneMusic 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.

    This is like finding out that the cereal portion of Lucky Charms is creating it's own cereal and leaving the rest of Lucky Charms... leaving only the marshmallows. I'll stick with the marshmallows, thanks!
    Gene: "Hey guys, since we're not performing at the HOF, how about we do our own acoustic show to line our pockets a bit?"
    I would rather listen to an elephant have non-consensual sex with a banjo for four hours than attend this show for ten minutes.
    Never understood why people bother/waste their time going bitching about bands they hate/don't like.
