Watch a makeup-less Kiss perform 'Deuce,' 'Hotter Than Hell' and more at special Kiss Kruise sailaway show

The band kicked off the festivities with a raucous daytime set

The second week of the Kiss Kruise is in full effect, and it began in rocking style with a special day time, makeup-less sailaway show from the headlining act themselves.  

As our own Paul Gargano recalled, "Day one kicked off with Paul, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer taking the stage sans their classic makeup and performing an hour-long unmasked set of Kiss classics. We got a killer run through of “Shock Me” by Tommy Thayer, some well-played age jokes leading into “Christine Sixteen,” and even an unplanned “Strutter” encore.

The 13 songs had us singing along and screaming for more, from “Hotter Than Hell,” “Firehouse” and “Do You Love Me” to the band’s first single “Nothin’ to Lose" - that “went nowhere” according to Paul - and deeper cuts “Goin’ Blind” and “Two Timer.” 

You can check out fan-filmed footage of "Deuce," "Hotter Than Hell," Firehouse" and "Parasite" from week one above, and "Two Timer" from week two below.
