For only the fourth time in the group’s history, Kiss will perform as a trio. Despite scrapping their tour of Down Under due to Paul Stanley suffering complications from a flu attack, one show at least will still go on. Gene Simmons, Eric Singer, and Tommy Thayer will play today (November 18th) at a special benefit show on a glass-bottomed boat off the Southern Coast of Australia.

The band sets sail from Port Lincoln, Australia on board The Shark Warrior, a boat “that will allow passengers to see the sharks, who are reportedly drawn to low frequencies.” All proceeds will benefit the Australian Marine Conservation Society.
