What, you were thinking the chicken dance?

When Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed finally got married after 28 years together, only one band could properly – and loudly – mark the occasion.

The groom strapped on his bass (but not his kabuki makeup) and joined his KISS band-mates to entertain the crowd of 400 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

“Our party rocked a long time,” says Tweed-Simmons. “Everyone got up a sang.”

The wedding is featured on Tuesday night’s episode of A&E’s Gene Simmons Family JewelsMia McNiece
