Unplugged: (March 12, 1996)

KISSOn August 8, 1995, KISS performed on MTV Unplugged. Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons contacted former members Peter Criss and Ace Frehley and invited them to participate in the event. Fan reaction to Criss and Frehley at the Unplugged show was so positive that, in 1996, the original lineup of KISS reunited, with all four original members together for the first time since 1979. It also marked the first and only time the original lineup performed live without their trademark makeup.

The Band

Stanley, Simmons, Singer, Kulick, Criss and Frehley
