KISS concert goes live through Facebook

KISS still packs stadiums after more  than 35 years, but the legendary rock band will use Facebook to let even more fans experience Wednesday night's concert in Los Angeles.

"At the very least, it's a way to get a taste of the experience and  either it will undoubtedly entice you to want to come to a show, or it will you  relive what you saw when we hit your town," KISS frontman Paul Stanley said.  Their first-ever live Web concert begins streaming at 8:30 p.m. PT (11:30 p.m. ET) - as they take the Staples Center stage.
