Hot rockin’! KISS cover band guitarist doesn’t miss a beat as his hair sets on fire by pyrotechnics and has to be extinguished by roadies
- KISS tribute band Hairball singer Bobby Jensen, dressed as Paul Stanley, had his hair catch on fire after a stage pyrotechnic went off and a spark landed on him
- Backstage staff frantically ran onto the stage to try and put out the flames
- Thanks to his attentive roady, Jensen kept on rocking like nothing had happened
A guitarist with the Kiss tribute band, Hairball, had an extremely close call when his hair was set alight by on-stage fireworks.
Video shot by a person in the crowd at the gig in Sioux City, Iowa, clearly shows how a spark hit Jensen’s head as he was performing in full Paul Stanley costume and makeup.
Just as the band began playing Detroit Rock City by Kiss the fire began to quickly spread across his hair and over his head.

At one stage it appeared as though Jensen was completely unaware what was happening
A bandmate attempted to douse the flames but was unable to help fully and so signaled for others to help.
Two members of the stage crew then quickly worked to extinguish the flames.
Meanwhile, Jensen doesn’t miss a single beat or lyric throughout the entire incident.
‘I live an Evil Knievel kind of life, so if I’m on fire a little bit, I don’t care, that’s just part of the fun,’ Jensen said in an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock.

While Jensen’s bandmate walked on, two roadies from backstage finally got the flames out
‘I knew I was on fire right away, and that wasn’t a wig, that’s my hair. It was really nice and foofy before the show, now I have a much better Alice Cooper cut. It got a little warm on my head, and some of it’s burned off, but it still doesn’t look bad.
‘I have 100% faith in my guys that they’ll get to me and put me out. So I just thought, ‘I’ll sing to everybody while I’m on fire.”
Hairball bill themselves as ‘a bombastic celebration of arena rock,’ and have been together for almost 20 years performing classic hits from artists such as Van Halen, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey and Aerosmith.
