The band had previously announced their intention to secure mentions in the annual Guinness World Records reference book for their pyrotechnics at the event in Dubai. They also hoped to set a record for the highest-grossing pay-per-view event for a rock concert.
One of the GWR adjudicators who’d attended as a witness spoke on camera once the performance was complete, reporting that Kiss had set records for the highest flame projection in a music concert – at 35 meters – and the most flame projections launched simultaneously in a music concert. Quoting the GWR slogan he said: “I can reveal that you achieved a grand total of 73. You are officially amazing.”
He was unable to confirm whether they’d also secured the PPV sales record, saying: “We still need to review the evidence. Good luck, guys.”
