KISS Defend Their Use Of Backing Tracks In Concert
. (Classic Rock) KISS have admitted to using backing tracks during their current tour of Japan, but Gene Simmons and co are adamant that there is nothing wrong with the move.
Pre-recorded parts are being played along with the band during their performances of Samurai Son, one of two songs they recently recorded with Japanese pop outfit Momoiro Clover Z. But Kiss say in a tweet: "Recorded Samurai Son for Japan. To reproduce production here, we play live with extra tracks. Nothing to hide."
Blabbermouth reports that Simmons slated bands using backing tracks in 2012, saying: "We're sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes." Read more here.
