Video: On Stage With KISS Before The Curtain Drops
- Jan. 13, 2013
KISS' official web site, KissOnline.com, has uploaded video behind-the-scenes footage of the crew and KISS preparing to take the stage in Holmdel, New Jersey on September 22, 2012. The clip, which was shot by Keith Leroux, was filmed with a night-vision camera, and the first part of the video is silent because LED ZEPPELIN's "Rock and Roll" was playing in the amphitheater, and YouTube was blocking the video due to the background audio. Fran Stewart is captured doing the famous "you wanted the best" intro before the band breaks into "Detroit Rock City".
"Monster", the 20th studio album from KISS, sold 56,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart.
KISS' previous CD, "Sonic Boom", opened with 108,000 units back in October 2009 to enter the chart at No. 2. This marked the band's highest-charting LP ever.
KISS has notched nine Top 10 albums, according to Billboard.com. Its previous highest-charting set was 1998's "Psycho Circus", which debuted and peaked at No. 3 with 110,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The group's other high-charting sets include 1975's "Alive!" (No. 9), 1977's "Love Gun" (No. 4) and 1992's "Revenge" (No. 6).
