Recently, a cover band by the name of Hairball were performing a show in Sioux City, Iowa. During the band’s performance of “Detroit Rock City” band member Bobby Jenson’s hair caught on fire after some pyro landed on his head.
Hairball perform tracks from multiple classic rock acts, with band members changing outfits throughout each gig to match up with the songs they are playing. At this point in the show, Bobby Jenson was in full KISS makeup like Paul Stanley, as the band started playing “Detroit Rock City”.
Watch the video below, you can see some pyro landed in Bobby Jenson’s hair, causing it to go up into flames. However, he kept calm as he continued to perform while his bandmate tried to put the fire out. A couple of crew members then ran to the stage and put out the fire.
After the video went viral, KISS themselves reached out to Bobby Jenson to ask if he was alright. KISS saw the video and said “Hey are you OK? F**k man, you just stood there and kept on singing.”
Bobby Jenson also revealed that he doesn’t wear a wig and that it was his real hair that caught on fire. Bobby Jenson has said “It was really nice and foofy before the show, now I have a much better Alice Cooper cut.”
