The book has closed on KISS 2020 Goodbye, the band's livestream event broadcast from the Palm in Dubai - but not without changing a couple verses to adhere to local customs in the United Arab Emirates city.
The US rock band replaced the phrase "virgin soul," from the Gene Simmons-sung God of Thunder, to "sacred soul," and also removed the word "bitch" from 100,000 Years. Also nixed; the band's famed blood-spitting theatrics.
Although a playground for the rich and famous, Dubai is conservative about epithets that might not raise an eyebrow in America.
Anything seen as a profanity or other bad language can be labelled as an obscene act, and offenders can be fined as much as Dhs 10,000 ($A3,510) or jailed.
Saying the word "f***" is a crime in Dubai, as it "disgraces the honour or the modesty" of a person, according to Article 373 of the UAE Penal Code.
KISS, with founding bassist Simmons and guitarist Paul Stanley now joined by guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer, played a super-sized set of its End Of The Road tour setlist, 22 songs in all, on a huge stage.
The massive production, produced by Landmarks Live Presents and directed by Daniel Catullo, was filmed in 4K, with more than 50 cameras and 360-degree views.
KISS also set two high-water (or high-pyro) marks destined for the Guinness Book of World Records.
One was the most flame projections launched simultaneously in a music concert.
"I can reveal that you achieved a grand total of 73," said a representative for the Guinness Book, on-camera. "You are officially amazing."
KISS also set the record for the highest flame projections in a music concert, with the new benchmark being "35 metres."
The band is still waiting on certification that it smashed the highest grossing pay-per-view livestream record for a rock concert.
The minimum requirement, the rep said, was $US10.4 million ($A13.5 million).
The results are not yet certified, and the group has considerable competition with a Justin Bieber livestream also scheduled for New Year's Eve.
"We still need to review the evidence," the rep said from the stage. "Good luck, guys."
