Kiss filmed two weekend shows on its summer Rock the Nation tour for a forthcoming DVD release. A performance Saturday outside Washington, D.C., and Sunday’s show in Virginia Beach, Va., are expected to form the basis for the as-yet-untitled project. No release date has been announced.

Based on the set lists for the two shows, fans can expect to see such classics as “Detroit Rock City,” “Deuce,” “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” and “Shout It Out Loud” alongside more obscure tracks like “Love Her All I Can,” “All the Way” and “War Machine,” capped by fire breathing from bassist Gene Simmons.

Kiss’ most recent DVD was “Kiss Symphony,” released last September via Sanctuary, which chronicled the group’s performance with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. The title debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Music Video chart.

In related news, Simmons will on Aug. 10 release the CD/DVD “Speaking in Tongues,” consisting primarily of a lecture tour of Australia. The audio component sports a host of previously unreleased solo compositions. Also due the same day via Universal is the two-disc set “KISS Gold,” featuring material from 1974-1982.
