Despite the strong support for Eminem, it doesn't look like many people left before KISS.

After the drop of a giant black curtain emblazoned with the band's silver logo, Kiss took the stage to close out the first day of Epicenter at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana Saturday night.

The iconic '70s rockers performed in full costume and makeup, flanked by shooting flames as they floated to the stage on an elevator-like platform.

Things we noticed in the set from KISS:

MARATHON SHOW CUT SHORT BY CURFEW

KISS found headlining festivals a tough gig in Fontana, California on Saturday night when they realized their plans to rock on past midnight would not be possible.

Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons' veterans had hoped to turn their set at the Epicenter Twenty Ten festival into a marathon treat for fans and U.S. troops listening to a global live broadcast of the show.

But a strict 11 p.m. curfew made them rethink their setlist - and limited them to an 80-minute performance.

Disappointed Stanley told fans, "We were gonna rock you for two-and-a-half-hours but we were told we can't; they told us we've got a curfew."

The rockers closed the first night of the weekend festival. Prior to their performance, Eminem, reunited acts House of Pain, Bush and Papa Roach thrilled fans in the scorching heat.

(SAN FRANCISCO, CA) Sept. 22, 2010 - In a music event that will mark the first time a band of historic magnitude has streamed a free concert to millions through a social game, KISS will broadcast their final North American date of their hugely-successful 2010
Hottest Show on Earth concert tour live in Booyah's Nightclub
City, a wildly-popular, music-centric social game and marketing platform for musicians on Facebook.

The live concert will bring new and traditional media together by simultaneously airing on sites KROQ.com in Los Angeles and CBS Radio rock station websites nationwide via Ustream on Saturday, September 25, where KISS is headlining the Epicenter Twenty Ten Festival in Fontana, California.

Fans of KISS will be able to watch the iconic band play for FREE by simply logging on to the Nightclub City application in Facebook or by going to the KISS Ustream site.

Nightclub City is a digital game based around real-world music, and the landmark KISS event represents Booyah's platform as a real-world gaming leader blending interactive entertainment with social apps while blurring the lines between the real and digital worlds.

"We're celebrating the end of a monster tour by giving everyone a chance to relive some of what they heard and saw at the show. Unfortunately, we will not be responsible for computers melting," said KISS co-founder Paul Stanley.

"We have always believed in pushing the boundaries...in giving the fans bang for the buck...in going where no band has gone before," added KISS co-founder Gene Simmons. "This one's gonna rock big time!"

The dynamic world of Nightclub City is powered by Booyah's vision of fusing elements from the real and digital worlds to create new forms of interactive entertainment. Since opening its club doors in April 2010, more than 8.6 million active players have joined the party per month, and experienced new music within the social game setting and created special experiences that go beyond the realm of the digital world.
