KISS: KISS Kruise Video Footage Posted Online

The first-ever KISS Kruise launched in style yesterday afternoon from Miami, Florida with a non-makeup unplugged KISS sail-away concert. Over 2500 Kiss Army members became inaugural members of the KISS Navy.

According to
Kiss Asylum, the live and unplugged non-makeup set aboard the KISS Kruise featured a mix of KISS classics, songs that haven't been dusted off in a few years, and attempts at extreme rarities:

01. Hotter Than Hell
02. Calling Dr. Love
03. Sure Know Something
04. Christine Sixteen
05. Do You Love Me?
06. Shandi
07. I Love It Loud
08. Forever
09. See You Tonite
10. Black Diamond
11. Hard Luck Woman (Paul Stanley lead vocals)
12. Beth (Eric Singer lead vocals)
13. Every Time I Look At You
14. Just A Boy / I / Mr. Blackwell (partial songs performed as an Elder medley)
15. Anything For My Baby / Two Timer (songs attempted, then aborted)
16. C'Mon And Love Me 

In a recent interview with Wallace Immen of, KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons stated about the first-ever KISS Kruise, "The KISS Kruise is a chance for all of us - the band and the fans - to have a ball. Just let your hair down and not worry about it at all. KISS has always been about breaking the rules. We've never liked that moat - the stage - separating the band from the fans. So whenever we do a show, we try to take the action right to your face. A cruise will let the fans get up close. We try to take it inside you, we want you to smell it and taste it and feel it."

When asked if the fans were going to get to interact with the band on the cruise, Gene said, "We're going to have a deck up top to ourselves and we will certainly want to bring up fans. It may to a little difficult to get down to the lower levels and hang out a lot, because you've got 3,000 people on board, who are basically going to shred you to pieces. It's all appreciated of course, and I say all this with tongue in cheek - I don't mean my tongue in your cheek, but you know what I mean. The real idea of this cruise is to have fun. Everything about KISS is over the top. Everything about it is meant to really make every day we have above ground a fun day."
