Video: KISS Performs Rarities During 'Kiss Kruise III'

Keith Leroux for of KISS' official web site,, has uploaded video footage of the band's first indoor performance during the Kiss Kruise III, which took place from October 28 to November 1 on board the Norwegian Pearl from Miami, Florida to Key West, Florida and Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas.

KISS played "Almost Human" (from 1977's "Love Gun" album) for the first time ever, as well as several rarely performed songs, including "The Oath" (from 1981's "Music From The Elder") and "Mainline" (from 1974's "Hotter Than Hell") — a track originally sung by former KISS drummer Peter Criss.

In a 2012 interview, KISS frontman Paul Stanley stated about the band's desire to throw in several surprises during the Kiss Kruise shows: "You have to remember that when we play in bigger places, we play for the bigger crowds and the people on the Kruise are die-hards. You can do something special for the die-hards that would not be appreciated by the masses. You can do things in a Kiss Kruise we can't do in an arena because those people wouldn't appreciate what we are doing."

The band's setlist for the October 29 concert was as follows:
