Gene Simmons kept his legendary tongue in check for Macy's Parade

KISS frontman Gene Simmons toned down his trademark tongue action during the legendary rock band’s performance at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, reports The New York Post.

The epic performance by KISS in full costume and makeup was one of the highlights of the many theatrics of Thursday morning’s family- friendly parade, watched by nearly 23 million people.

The band pulled out the stops for the performance, broadcast live on NBC, from their float outside Macy’s Herald Square, and performed a rocking Kiss medley.

But one thing missing (apart from blood spitting and fire breathing) from the KISS act was bassist Simmons’ overtly suggestive gymnastics with his freakishly long tongue. The NBC cameras delicately panned away when he did get the much-talked-about tongue out, and there was far less lingual wagging going on.

Simmons told the newspaper he did purposely tone things down to be family-friendly. “I was proud to be a part of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. My tongue is God-given. As regards the parade, my intention was to be tongue in cheek. Mostly, I kept it in my cheek," he admitted.

A Macy’s rep responded, “There were no restrictions placed on the KISS appearance. Their performance was a highlight of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade’s live national broadcast which captured the very best of this legendary group.”
