(CBS) – Gene Simmons and the rest of KISS have never hid their love of the Fab Four, referring to the band as a template and themselves as “The Beatles on steroids.” Now the rockers takes on the same stage The Beatles famously graced in ’64: KISS performed on “Live on Letterman” at New York’s historic Ed Sullivan Theater on Wednesday evening.
KISS’ concert aired live on CBS.com and VEVO, with an audio stream available through Radio.com. Not only does it mark the 50th webcast of “Live on Letterman,” but KISS’ performance came just one day after the release of the band’s 20th album, “Monster”. You can catch the online rebroadcast, here.
The band is in touring mode, having wrapped its tour alongside Motley Crue mere weeks ago. KISS will continue touring next month with South American dates.
Fans experienced both new and old songs from KISS during the “Live on Letterman” taping, ranging from the band’s classic anthems like “Calling Dr. Love,” “Lick It Up” and “Christine Sixteen” to their latest single “Hell or Hallelujah.”
