Whatever floats your boat.


As promised, KISS performed a one-off show on a boat on Monday for eight people without Paul Stanley... yep, that happened. 

Despite calling off their Australian tour due to Stanley's illness, the three remaining members of the US rock group still took a trip to Port Lincoln in South Australia to play as part of a promotion with AirBnB.

According to 9News, four of the fans on board were from Adelaide, two were from country South Australia and two made the long flight over from Texas in the US. 

"I would say it's one of the most unusual eclectic things we ever did, that's for sure," KISS drummer Eric Singer said.

"I've done some crazy gigs with different bands through the years."

In a statement issued last Thursday, Stanley said of the tour cancellation, "Words cannot begin to convey our massive disappointment in having to cancel our End Of The Road tour of your incredible country. Our connection to you is unparalleled and decades deep.

“We waited as long as we could and held out hope to the last minute that my situation would clear up and we would be able to march forward. Doctor’s orders ultimately have taken precedence and finally we now find ourselves with no choice but to surrender. With heavy hearts, KISS.”
