Earlier this week, Kiss set sail on their Kiss Kruise, a festival comprised of two voyages, from Los Angeles to Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada, Mexico.

The programming for the sea-bound event lists various activities such as bingo, autograph sessions and Q&As, Kiss Karaoke, a Halloween party and multiple live performances from the band both "masked and unmasked".

Fan-filmed footage from the first day of the festival on October 24 sees the band in the latter state, taking to the ship's stage bereft of their costumes, makeup or any sort of performance feature or dazzling prop.

Within the clip, the glam metal quartet play out Two Timer, lifted from their 1975 album Dressed To Kill, somewhat ironically. The band last performed the song live in 2011.

"You can tell, it's all on tape, we're not really playing, we're not really singing... just kidding!" quips guitarist Paul Stanley, making a jokey reference to the stripped-down nature of their set-up.

Other bands booked to play Kiss' sea festival include Dokken/Lynch, Warrant and L.A. Guns for the first cruise, and the likes of Black Label Society, Buckcherry, Stryper and Vixen for the second.
