The band KISS will be inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame April 10. The band will not perform in the lineup.
According to the Associated Press, the band said on their website, "It is over 13 years since the original lineup has played together in makeup and we believe the memory of those times would not be enhanced. To bring this to a quick end, we have decided not to play in any line-up, and we will focus our attention on celebrating our induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame."
The band was started in 1973 and played until 1980. They were quiet for about 15 years and then reunited. They returned to a new generation of fans and played from 1996 to 2000.
After the induction ceremony, Paul Stanley hopes to continue the legacy of KISS by opening “as many as 100 Rock and Brews over the next five years,” according to the Huffington Post.
