KISS performs "Shout It Out Loud" on The Late Late Show with James Corden. 

Kiss didn’t need a costume store run before their Late Late Show appearance on Wednesday night (Oct. 31). Donning their signature black wigs, face paint and shiny space-age costumes, they were born ready for Halloween. The legendary metal band rocked the show with a special performance of their iconic 1976 banger “Shout It Out Loud” as part of the promotion for their upcoming final world tour.

Frontman Paul Stanley and guitarist Tommy Thayer joined together for an opening electric guitar riff, with the dazzling lights flashing behind them as they leaned into the first verse. “Well the night's begun and you want some fun,” Stanley sang. “Do you think you're gonna find it/ You got to treat yourself like number one/ Do you need to be reminded.”

Bassist Gene Simmons took over the next line, rumbling, “It doesn't matter what you do or say” in his husky voice. “Just forget the things that you've been told/ We can't do it any other way/ Everybody's got to rock n roll yay.”

The group repeated the explosive chorus together, “Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud,” as pyrotechnics streamed behind them, bringing a bit of their patented arena rocking to James Corden's intimate stage. The electrifying performance comes just a few months before the One Last Kiss: End of the Road World Tour kicks off on Jan. 31 in Vancouver, Canada, before wrapping up on Dec. 3, 2019, in Auckland, New Zealand.
