KISS had a bit of a Spinal Tap moment Saturday night in Tampa, Florida when the platform that lowered Gene Simmons from the rafters to the stage tilted upon landing.
Simmons couldn't get off, leading the rest of the band to repeat the opening riff to "Detroit Rock City" until he was able to step off and Paul Stanley then started singing.
It was very reminiscent of the movie Spinal Tap when bassist Derek Smalls, portrayed by Harry Shearer, couldn't exit his pod during "Rock 'n' Roll Creation."
On Friday, KISS postponed their show at the iTHINK Financial Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida due to inclement weather. After delaying the show at 7:30, the band took the stage at 10 with Paul Stanley saying, “This is not what we expected. And it wouldn't be fair to the rest of the people who are showing up. Here's what we're gonna do: November 5th, we're coming back. We'll do the show. So hold on to your tickets. Friday night, November 5th, we'll be back. We apologize. Look — we're ready. You know, 'cause you live here — this isn't safe. And the most important thing is making sure that you're safe. So we will see you on November 5th. Drive safely, get home, come back and see us. We love you."
KISS took their End of the Road tour to Atlanta last night and Wednesday they're in the Pittsburgh suburb of Burgettstown, Pennsylvania.
