KISS Makes Small Lyrical Changes For Dubai Concert, Drops Blood-Spitting Stunt

KISS reportedly cleaned up its act for tonight’s New Year’s Eve live pay-per-view performance in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, apparently out of respect for local customs and beliefs. Gene Simmons‘s blood-spitting stunt was missing during his bass solo, and the words “bitch” and “virgin soul” were removed from the lyrics of “100,000 Years” and “God of Thunder”, respectively, the latter replaced by “sacred soul.”

Landmarks Live Presents produced the show, which attempted to set the world’s record for largest pyro. The $10 million spectacular was filmed with more than 50 4K cameras and 360-degree views and was held on a massive 250-foot stage at The Royal Beach at Atlantis.

KISS is not the first international artist to self-censor its show in order to bring its music to fans in United Arab Emirates, where expatriates make up most of the population. Back in 2014, Lady Gaga wore a Christmas ornament with a Tayoi Kasuma costume, in lieu of revealing clothing, when she kicked off the Asian leg of her “ArtRAVE” tour at Dubai’s Meydan Racecourse.

Two years earlier, Madonna held a controversial concert in Abu Dhabi where she reportedly angered the audience with allusions to Judeo-Christian traditions, revealing outfits and erotic dances.

“Kiss 2020 Goodbye” setlist:

01. Detroit Rock City

02. Shout It Out Loud

03. Deuce

04. Say Yeah

05. I Love It Loud

06. Heaven’s On Fire

07. Tears Are Falling

08. War Machine

09. Lick It Up

10. Calling Dr. Love

11. 100,000 Years

12. Cold Gin

13. God Of Thunder

14. Psycho Circus

15. Parasite

16. Love Gun

17. I Was Made For Lovin’ You

18. Black Diamond

19. Beth

20. Strutter

21. Do You Love Me?

22. Rock And Roll All Nite

KISS launched its farewell trek in January 2019 but was forced to put it on hold earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“End Of The Road” was originally scheduled to conclude on July 17, 2021 in New York City but is now expected to last well into 2022.

KISS‘s current lineup consists of original members Paul Stanley (guitar, vocals) and Gene Simmons (bass, vocals), alongside later band additions, guitarist Tommy Thayer (since 2002) and drummer Eric Singer (on and off since 1991).
