Kiss star Gene Simmons has been slapped with legal action from a concert security guard who allegedly slipped and fell on the band's confetti during a gig in 2012.

The rockers celebrated the end of their show at the Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana by spraying water and confetti all over the stage and over members of the crowd.

However, security official Timothy Funk claims the "foolish and reckless" stunt put his safety at risk after he tumbled on the "slippery, waxy, and glassy" stage floor, and now he is suing for damages.

He has filed papers in Hamilton Superior Court, near Indianapolis, seeking compensation for undisclosed injuries, loss of wages and other charges.

Simmons is named as a defendant, alongside venue bosses and officials at concert promotion firm Live Nation.
