Kiss to Perform on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ on April 9 + 10
Not once, but twice! That’s how many times Kiss will perform on ABC’s ratings bonanza ‘Dancing With the Stars’ next week. We know, we sounded like the Count for a minute there. In all seriousness, Gene Simmons and co. will take to the stage on both Monday, April 9 and Tuesday, April 10 to rock the worlds of the viewers like never before.
The Monday episode airs at 8 PM, while Tuesday’s results episode, if you care about that sort of thing, airs at 9 PM ET. If you love all things Kiss, make yourself a note now so you don’t miss it. Fresh off an appearance at the ACMs, which celebrate country music, Kiss are certainly improving their footing outside the rock world with their latest promotional bookings.
It’ll be interesting to see and hear which songs Kiss actually play, since ‘DWTS’ guest performers usually play slower tunes as they serve as the backing house band while the dancers glide across the wooden floor to whatever song is being performed by the live act. We can’t imagine it’ll be ‘Detroit Rock City’ or ‘Cold Gin.’ Perhaps a ballad like ‘Hard Luck Woman’ or ‘Beth’ will be employed in this scenario. Guess you’ll have to tune into your local ABC affiliate next week to find out.
Perhaps the dancers will be fully made up in Kiss-like garb? We bet Simmons would love that. Branding is key. We’d actually love to see him or Paul Stanley engaging in a waltz or two.
