Paul Stanley Explains Why They Had To Play More Songs Without Rehearsal At KISS’ New Year’s Eve Show

KISS guitarist Paul Stanley spoke in a recent interview with The Rock Experience With Mike Brunn and revealed why they had to play the songs they didn’t practice during their New Year’s Eve performance in Dubai.

As you might recall, KISS wanted to make a concert that will be remembered all the time at the end of a terrible year, and they broke Guinness world records for the highest flame projection in a music concert and for most flame projections launched simultaneously in a music concert.

In the conversation, Paul pointed out that the organization told them that they need to play more songs for the show because they were not in the midnight yet.

Because of that, Paul suggested to play ‘Strutter’ song to the band. However, Paul admitted that they didn’t play it for a long time before the show and said that it was done even without any rehearsals.

Here is what Paul Stanley said:

“I thought considering we hadn’t played in a year, and I thought considering the circumstances not having an audience — playing to a hotel, more or less…

The fireworks were absolutely staggering. And I thought it was a good evening, a good night.”

He continued:

“Well, the funny thing was we played it because they said, ‘You guys have gotta play longer. We weren’t at midnight yet.

And I looked at the guys, and I said, ‘How about we play ‘Strutter’?’ It was done without rehearsal, and it was really off the cuff, and I can’t tell you the last time we played that.”
