KISS took things way back last night (February 11) when they played before a packed crowd at the legendary Whiskey A Go Go.

The set was part of a private event for Sirius XM in honor of their “End of the Road” farewell tour.  KISS was even billed as Wicked Lester on the Whiskey’s marquee, a nod to the band that Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons started in the early ‘70s that would evolve into the face-painted icons we know and love today.

The 12-song set consisted primarily of KISS’ ‘70s catalog, but they did venture into ‘80s catalog with “Heaven’s on Fire,” “Lick It Up” and “War Machine.” They even included “Say Yeah” from 2009’s Sonic Boom.

Check out the setlist below along with some fan-shot video from the show!
