For one of the few times in his career, Gene Simmons has played a full-length solo show.

The Saturday night (March 18) show at The Agora in Cleveland, included fourteen KISS songs among the seventeen selections along with two songs from his 1978 solo album and an impromptu version of Johnny B. Goode to salute Chuck Berry who had died earlier in the day.
