Kiss - Kiss Play Surprise Gig At Former Cbgb Home

Rockers Kiss played a surprise gig for unsuspecting fans at the former home of iconic New York music venue Cbgb to kick off designer JOHN VARVATOS' Spring/Summer 2014 campaign.

The veteran musicians recently took over the punk mecca, which has been turned into a boutique for the acclaimed designer, and performed Rock & Roll All Nite and C'mon and Love Me in full make-up for style fans who were simply told to turn up for a secret "intimate performance".

In a video short posted online, bassist Gene Simmons and singer/guitarist Paul Stanley prepare for the intimate show in front of just 200 fans.

Stanley says, "Any time somebody suits up... whether it's for battle, you're getting ready to go to a war of sorts.

"You want to win. This is my battle gear; this is my war paint. I go up there to have a great time, but I'm dead serious, with all guns loaded and a six-string guitar that can kill."

Simmons adds, "I probably have a loose screw someplace in my head. Otherwise I wouldn't be wearing more make-up and high heels than your mommy. Boy, do I look good!"

Last Saturday (11Jan14), Kiss turned heads at Varvatos' show during Milan Fashion Week in Italy by walking the runway in sharp designer suits.

In April (14), Kiss will be back in the Big Apple for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The rockers will be part of the museum's Class of 2014.
