Hard-rocking band KISS have confirmed they’re playing Atlantis on New Year’s Eve and are planning the world’s biggest pyro show.
As well as playing a live show at The Royal Beach at Atlantis infront of a Covid-secure crowd, the show will be streamed live across the world with 50 cameras and 360-degree views.
The show will take place on a 250-foot stage which will be packed with pyrotechnics. And KISS will be looking to break the pyro world record with 100m high flame throwers.
In total, the band will spend nearly $1 million on pyrotechnics. And 400 people will work on the NYE show in Dubai.
The band are currently on a farewell tour which started last year. And they’re looking to go out with a bang this year. This is that the band said about the NYE gig.
“After nine months of this pandemic darkness the world may finally be seeing light of day. On New Year’s Eve KISS will rock the heavens, shake the earth and blaze the way out of 2020 with the largest and most bombastic celebration in our and anyone else’s history. We all need it. We all deserve it. Here’s to 2021.”
And the band’s bassist Gene Simmons told Rolling Stone they were excited about one of the biggest live-streaming shows in history.
“The best way to shut everybody up and get everybody to enjoy life right now is to make a big resounding noise and shake the heavens with some pyro,” bassist Gene Simmons tells Rolling Stone.
