The Tribeca Film Festival in New York City held the screening of Biography: Kisstory, a documentary focusing on the work and legacy of the legendary rock group Kiss, who surprised the audience with a set of five of their most emblematic songs.
Marking his first live performance after the pandemic, Kiss managed to light the stages with his usual pyrotechnic show to the rhythm of Detroit Rock City, War Machine, Shout It Out Loud, Heaven’s on Fire to culminate with Rock and Roll All Nite.
“We are not allowed to do a long show,” he announced. Paul Stanley, leader of the group, during the end of the presentation.
“So this is a bit short. It is a sample before they have the main course in August,” he announced cheerfully, anticipating the imminent return of Kiss to the stage.
After being postponed due to the pandemic, next August the members of Kiss will begin their farewell tour, which was scheduled to begin in January 2020.
When this tour ends, the group indicated that it will carry out a concert in “the coldest place on Earth.”
Kiss on the screen
Biography: Kisstory is a four-hour documentary film that, after being screened at the Tribeca Festival, will have its respective premiere through the A&E chain for two nights in the month of June, with the complete approval of the members of Kiss.
Paul Stanley stated that this documentary was “really amazing”. In addition to the interventions of the members of the band, the footage also has the participation of prominent rock artists such as Dave Grohl Y Tom Morello.
The project is a completely separate one from Shout It Out Loud, a biographical film that is in its early stages of development and will arrive exclusively for Netflix.
Kiss will also feature a new comic called Phantom Obsession, which Ian Edginton wrote and will be available in August.
