Video: GENE SIMMONS Barely Avoids Fall During Platform Failure KISS’s Concert In Tampa

Gene Simmons almost took a face plant on stage in Tampa last night due to a faulty platform.

KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons just barely avoided a fall during the opening song of the band’s concert last night (Saturday, October 9) in Tampa, Florida.

KISS, as they commonly do, opened the show with their hit “Detroit Rock City”, with each of the bandmembers lowered to the stage by hydraulic platforms. As the platforms on which Simmons, Paul Stanley and Tommy Thayer were standing were lowered to the stage, Simmons’ platform suddenly tilted to one side, nearly throwing him off balance.

Fortunately, Gene was close enough to the floor for him to be able to step off without getting injured.
