Kiss Announce That They Will “Rock Forever” by Performing as Digital Avatars

During the final Kiss show of their farewell tour last night at Madison Square Garden, the band made a big reveal during the encore. From here on out, Kiss will perform as digital avatars. Super-powered digital versions of the band appeared on the screen to perform their version of “God Gave Rock’n’Roll to You” (from the Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey soundtrack). Watch it happen below.

The avatars were created through a partnership with the Swedish entertainment company Pophouse Entertainment Group and created by the George Lucas-founded company Industrial Light & Magic. In a short video below, you can see the members of Kiss hooked up to the motion capture technology that helped inform their avatars. Pophouse also worked with ABBA on their recent live shows.
