Product Details


Product Description

Kiss: The Second Coming is a band-sanctioned hagiography focusing on the profit-minded 1996 tour that found the '70s heavy-metal icons back in full-bore makeup and costumes for a time-trip back to their Alive II heyday. At 122 minutes, Second Coming is an hour too long for all but die-hard devotees, and peaks with its opening recap of the band's early fire-breathing years. After that, it's a quick run-through of good-days-gone-bad clichés before the long haul of backstage shots and gee-it's-great-to-be-back-on-the-playground testimonials takes over. Little insight is present, though there is a bit of comic myth-mocking during a sequence demonstrating the inflation of the stage show's gargantuan inflatable figures of Gene, Paul, Peter, and Ace. Three tour performances, including music videos for "Detroit Rock City" and "Shout It Out Loud," alleviate the boredom. --Rickey Wright

Product Description

For over a quarter century, Kiss has shaped the face of popular music and rock culture. The "Kiss Alive Worldwide" tour saw the rebirth of rock's most incredible band. Who are these masked men and where did they come from? What did it take to reclaim their title as "The Hottest Band in the World?" After 18 years apart, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, Peter Criss and Gene Simmons overcame their past differences, finally reuniting the powerhouse original Kiss lineup that wrote rock and roll legend. This is Kiss and this is their story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lifelong KISS fan March 1 2004
Format:DVD
I've been a KISS fan since I was about four years old. I was turned onto KISS by my mom's youngest sister, Jane. My aunt married young and after she married, my aunt gave me a bunch of her old KISS records. I've been a huge fan ever since. If you only ever own one KISS dvd, I highly recommend this one! I saw the original four on the first reunion tour back in 1996 and I was not disappointed. I've probably watched my dvd copy of "The Second Coming" a good dozen times. I think you'd enjoy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Kiss: The Second Coming March 31 2003
Format:DVD
SECOND COMING is a generally entertaining doco of KISS's 1996 reunion makes strange viewing for those who have read KISS AND MAKE UP.
Features reunion rehearsal footage which is pretty cool: viewers are treated to the sight of a scaled-down KISS minus all the glitz and pyrotechnics reduced to just four guys jamming and having fun. Other standouts include the sight of Gene wearing a shower cap while applying his makeup, the extremely lucky Paul Stanley surrounded by gorgeous butt nekkid women for a photo shoot as well as the amazing work that goes into designing the set for the tour and Peter Criss's brilliant drum solo.
The DVD also includes the live video of SHOUT IT OUT LOUD, and live performances of DETROIT ROCK CITY and SHANDI. This could be dismissed by some as just another license to print money to put in the pockets of the ageing Comic Book Monsters Of Rock, but if you're a die hard fan you'll probably enjoy it. It's just a shame that they're trying to relive their makeup glory days, it would have been cool to have seen some material from CREATURES OF THE NIGHT or REVENGE on here. Just because they weren't recorded with the Klassic Kiss lineup doesn't mean they're throwaways. Bruce Dickinson does some of the Bayley era Iron Maiden stuff in concert (SIGN OF THE CROSS) so why can't Kiss do UNHOLY or I LOVE IT LOUD with Ace and Peter?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Detailed DVD! Sept. 16 2007
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The dvd was made in 1998 and was written and produced by now KISS spaceman Tommy thayer.A look at the 1996 KISS original lineup reunion.The dvd is 2 hours and 15 minutes wich is in some fans opinion too long but i think the longer the KISS dvd are the better it is because i always want more of a KISS dvd.

The second coming starts with a short look at the original band`s albums until love gun and then shows to Peter and Ace at the mtv unplugged wich leads to them coming back for the reunion 96-97 tour.It shows how the band needed practice to learn these old things again wich was not easy.They made press conferences for the tour and then went for a 2 year tour around the world;japan,usa,switzerland,france,sweede and other country around the world.

The reunion tour was one of the year`s most succesfull.There are cool backstage look at the band and funny stuff that happened .They also show KISS photo sesions and magazine covers.One of the best part is when KISS is backstage and Paul and Ace latter joined by Peter are dancing to the japanese version of `the macarena`song wich is like the funniest thing ever.Concert footages are there but you have to wait a while to see them.They shown gene`s birthday in japan,paul`s birthday and ace`s but not not peter`s.they also show people going backstage to meet them.

The dvd is good and long enough but they didnt included the psycho circus album stuffs i wish they did it would have been more representative of the reunion.I think they could have wait a bit and then they could have shown the psycho circus tour talk about the album,its photo sesions and more.

extras includes;shout it out loud,shandi and detroit rock city that probably are from the 96-97 tour.also there is a discography and kiss online information.

overall;a very good look at the reunion and tours along with extras and concert footage.worth your money very recomended dvd.To all fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Father of Kiss Fan May 9 2004
Format:DVD
Who's kidding who, although I purchased this DVD for my son, I enjoyed watching it as well. The brief history of the band presented at the begininning really brought me back. Kiss has always held a special place in Rock and Roll and this DVD will clearly illustrate why. I found the DVD very entertaining and well worth the money, it's 2 hours long! There is some great footage of Kiss both onstage and off. However, since Amazon will not warn you, allow me. The DVD contains "explicit content", in other words T&A... An occasional "F" word isn't that bad, but clear shots of women in the audience lifting their shirts is just unacceptable. I'm sorry that I won't be able to watch it any more!

3.0 out of 5 stars Quality could've been better May 6 2004
Format:DVD
KISS is pure entertainment. Always have been, and they continue to do it better than anyone else. I have followed them for 30 years, since I was a kid. They have never skimped on anything. Everything about them was always bigger, better, louder, flashier, cooler than anyone or anything. The shows are over the top, merchandising is insane (KISS condoms! KISS coffin! You name it, it probably exists...) the songs rock, the characters are classic. So what I don't understand is why the video quality on the DVD is sub-par. The program content is awesome, but it doesn't look any better than the VHS version I own. It is so grainy and washed out that I wonder if I don't have a bootleg, perhaps actually recorded from a VHS tape! My DVD player is top notch, so it's not an equipment issue. Still entertaining, but the video quality is a let down. For the first time in 30 years, I'm disappointed.

If you like watching what happens behind the scenes of a tour and concert, this is the video for you. The rehearsal footage alone is worth the price of the tape. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars The original Kiss, with a little extra weight
Although you will find 3 or 4 songs here, this dvd is mostly about the process developed for the reunion tour, just after the original Kiss played the Unplugged concert. Read more
