Kiss shook up The Tonight Show with a head-banging performance of their legendary 1977 single “Love Gun” on Tuesday night (Oct. 30). Jimmy Fallon’s set was transformed into a rock show for the night as the crowd pushed up to a stage filled with beaming lights, flashy pyrotechnics and fog, with Kiss getting the audience warmed up for Halloween with their iconic black-and-white face paint and elaborate outfits.
The crowd pumped their fists and clapped their hands as the stately electric guitar chords opened the song and frontman Paul Stanley sang “I really love you baby, I love what you’ve got,” in his signature raspy voice. “Let’s get together, we can get hot/ No more tomorrow, baby time is today/ Girl, I can make you feel okay.”
The energy continued to build during the chorus, with Stanley engaging the crowd and guitarist Tommy Thayer breaking into an epic guitar solo during the bridge. Additional backstage video showed Fallon in a hallway with the band as they flung picks toward the camera. After discussing their farewell tour, Stanley showed Fallon how to flick a pick into a jack-o-lantern.
Kiss will embark on their One Last Kiss: End of the Road World Tour on Jan. 31 in Vancouver, Canada. The tour is currently scheduled through Dec. 3, 2019, in Auckland, New Zealand.
