Kiss Songs and Easter Egg in Kissology

According to, KISS' forthcoming DVD box set, "Kissology - Vol. 3 1992-2000" features a great Easter egg: the band's soundcheck for their performance under the Brooklyn Bridge for the MTV Video Music Awards back in 1996.

VH1 Classic Records will release "Kissology - Vol. 3 1992-2000", the third installment of the definitive collection, on Tuesday, December 18. The set will contain nearly 10 hours of KISS live on stage, including songs that didn't make it into the broadcast or CD version of the MTV "Unplugged" performance; and the much-heralded Queens, NY Coventry Show from December 1973 — the band's first-ever Find concert filmed in makeup in its entirety.

"Kissology - Vol. 3 1992-2000" has been super-expanded to four DVDs, featuring over 100 live performances, commentary from Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Bruce Kulick and Tommy Thayer as well as a 20-page full-color booklet.

Five concerts are included:

* Detroit – 1992
* Detroit – 1996
* Los Angeles – 1998
* New Jersey – 2000
* Queens, NY - 1973

One version of the release will feature a fifth bonus disc of KISS' performance at the KROQ Weenie Roast on June 15, 1996. Tracks include: "Deuce", "Love Gun", "Calling Dr. Love", "Firehouse", "Shock Me", "100,000 Years", "Detroit Rock City", "Black Diamond" and "Rock and Roll All Nite".

According to a posting on KISS' official web site, the band's DVD box set "Kissology: Volume 2 1978-1992" has been certified sextuple platinum, which comes out to around 150,000 copies due to the fact that the set consists of three discs; platinum certification for a single-disc release is 100,000 copies. It was released on August 14, 2007.

"Kissology: Volume 2 1978-1992" includes seven hours of live KISS on three DVDs. A bonus fourth DVD was made available via exclusive distribution outlets.
