KISS’ long-awaited farewell tour is finally underway and there’s literally hardly any part of the world that they aren’t playing at. This time around, they’re pulling out all the stops with stage theatrics that would make Cirque du Soleil look like a powerpoint presentation.
With that said though, there is already some small controversy surrounding the tour. Fans are accusing singer Paul Stanley of actually lip-syncing during his performance. Such accusations come from videos like this one below.
However, now after weeks of criticism, Paul has finally given his candid thoughts to what he thinks of all the accusations in a recent interview with Star Tribune. Though he didn’t say exactly whether or not he lip-syncs or not, he did offer some interesting information when asked how he takes care of his voice. Here is what he had to say…
“I try not to talk to guys like you, for one. It’s hard to stay away from smoke, because the arenas are filled with it. But I do shut up as much as possible, and try other things. There’s no denying, whether you’re an athlete or singer, that life goes on, and you aren’t who you once were. That’s life. I always say if you want to hear me sound like I did on ‘Alive!’ go listen to ‘Alive!’ That said, I have no problem doing what I’m doing and standing by it. The songs sound awesome.”
Whether you think he’s lip-syncing or not, Paul does have a good point. It’s truly difficult to pull off the things you were able to when you were young, but if there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that KISS still put on one hell of a show.
Be on the lookout for WHEN they stop in your town, because you owe it to yourself to go and see them live!
