To celebrate the 50th webcast of CBS Interactive's award-winning live webcast concert series, LIVE ON LETTERMAN, KISS will bring their spectacular, larger-than-life extravaganza of music to the world famous Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City. The concert will be webcast live and available on CBS.com and VEVO on Wednesday, Oct. 10 (8:00 PM, ET/5:00 PM, PT).
KISS, in all their bombastic and unstoppable glory, will perform fan favorites from their treasure trove of hits along with their recent worldwide #1 smash, "Hell or Hallelujah," from their new album, Monster, which is set to come out Tuesday, Oct. 9. Showing the band at the top of its game, Monster embodies all that is KISS and the music that first inspired them to pick up their guitars and flamethrowers and don makeup to entertain millions.
Having already broken box office records set by The Beatles and Elvis, KISS celebrates their 40th anniversary in 2013 with more than 28 U.S. gold albums, the most gold records for any American rock band, with 40 million sales in the U.S. and a total exceeding 100 million worldwide. Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, with longtime members guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer, return stronger than ever with their new album.
The LIVE ON LETTERMAN franchise, which has surpassed 130 million views to date on CBS.com and VEVO, marks its 50th webcast with KISS' performance. Past performances have included some of the most established bands and musicians across the globe, from its first event featuring Pearl Jam to Paul McCartney on the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater, as well as Foo Fighters, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Adele and more, all staged in an intimate and dynamic setting for worldwide followers to enjoy.
