KISS: ‘We’re like herpes’

Foursome say they still loving dressing up too

Kiss have said they have no plans to quit any time soon.

Speaking ahead of their headlining set at the Download Festival tonight (June 13) the quartet said they still love getting dressed up too.

When asked if they still enjoyed wearing the get-up they wear on stage Gene Simmons said: “We get to wear our mummy’s heels.”

The band admitted it’s important to keep fit too when wearing those outfits with Paul Stanley explaining: “Well nobody wants to see a fat guy in tights.”

The band, who take to the stage at 8.45pm (BST) tonight, also said the show wouldn’t disappoint.

Stanley said: “We go for knockouts every night.”

The band were adamant that they wouldn’t stop performing, insisting they would be hard to get rid of from the live scene, joking “We’re like herpes I guess.”
