On-Stage Antics

The FAQ is currently in the process of being updated in the new system. We apologize for any inconvenience, and will be updating this page as soon as possible.

Besides being one of the greatest musical performance acts in all of history, skilled at their craft in both composition and improvisation, these guys are also masters of delivery -- not only a great act, but a great show. They've historically and routinely incorporated special antics into their shows and stage presence, and have structured entire antic-y events.

Note that, often, the antics are something of a distraction. For example, yes, Mike and Trey are playing their instruments while bouncing on the trampolines, but pretty steadily; meanwhile, Page is wailing away. And some find Fishman's playing the most interesting during the It's Ice gliders, on which Mike and Trey slide but don't play a whole lot.

"Impose rules to make life simpler. Break them to make life more fun."
-- Jon Fishman

If you're going to watch bands stare at their boots, you might as well come to our shows. Our boots are more interesting."
-- Paul Stanley of KISS
