Watch Kiss Perform Special Acoustic Set at Japanese Meet-and-Greet

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

The full-blown Kiss concert experience is big enough to require the occasional use of pre-recorded backing tracks, but that doesn’t mean the group has forgotten how to deliver an old-fashioned, stripped-down acoustic set.

The proof, as presented in fan-shot footage, presents Kiss delivering an eight-song set during the soundcheck for the March 3 Tokyo date of their recent Japanese tour.

Performed for fans who purchased VIP tickets to the show, it runs the gamut from Kiss classics like “Christine Sixteen” to an assortment of covers that included the Beatles‘ “If I Fell” and “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away” (which you can watch below), Kyu Sakamoto’s “Sukiyaki” and “You Shook Me,” a Muddy Waters blues standard covered by Led Zeppelin on their 1969 debut LP (you can watch that one above).

The band’s latest tour leg coincided with the recent release of a two-song collaboration with the Japanese pop group Momoiro Clover Z, with whom Kiss appeared several times during their trip through the islands. They’re currently on a brief break from the road, scheduled to end with a series of spring dates in South America that will be followed by European shows in May and June.
