KISS found headlining festivals a tough gig in Fontana, California on Saturday, September 25 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 11pm 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. Sunday's line-up at Epicenter Twenty Ten includes headlining sets from Blink-182 and Suicidal Tendencies.
