Minneapolis-based Hairball travels the country as one of the best KISS tribute bands ever, but now they're traveling the world as a viral sensation thanks to frontman Bobby Jensen's heated performance. 

During the middle of "Detroit Rock City" rendition in Sioux City, Iowa, earlier this week, Jenson, in his full Paul Stanley costume, had his hair catch on fire from a pyrotechnics blast behind him. 

He had flames shooting from the back and top of his head, but he kept rocking and didn't even seem to notice until multiple bandmates and backstage workers ran to control the fire before the rest of him lit up. 

As Jensen told Ultimate Classic Rock, it wasn't a wig, "that's my hair." 

He added that it's "part of the fun" and that now he's got a "much better Alice Cooper cut." 

Here's another angle that Hairball shared to its Facebook page

Hairball's next Minnesota show is April 13 in Sartell, but not before they play in Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Florida and New York.
