KISS to release live recording of the 2004 Virginia Beach Show
The rock icons KISS are about to release another opus of their Off the soundboard official bootleg series live with KISS – Off The Soundboard: Live in Virginia Beach. The release, scheduled for March 11, was originally taped live at the Virginia Beach Amphitheater on July 25, 2004.
The series kicked off in April with a live recording of their 2001 performance at the Tokyo Dome. The latest installment will be available for streaming and download, as well as a standard 3 LP black vinyl set, 2 CD set, and a limited edition 3 LP set pressed onto opaque green vinyl. All options are available through the official KISS online store, here.
The Virginia Beach show took place amid their Rock The Nation Tour, the first complete American tour with Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. The 20 song set included “Lick It Up”, “I Love It Loud” and “I Was Made For Lovin ‘You”.
The news comes after KISS wrapped up its 2021 U.S. portion of its End of the Road farewell tour, where some gigs were affected when Simmons and Stanley each tested positive for COVID-19.
In other KISS news, the group canceled their Las Vegas residency at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino. After reports that the residency, originally scheduled for December 2021 to February 2022, has been removed, KISS director Doc McGhee has suggested it will be postponed until later in 2022.
