On Tour: The First "KISS" (Tour)

For KISS, the transition between club and touring band took place rapidly. Following their final performances at the Coventry in December 1973 they wouldn't return to club environments until 1988 and essentially hit the road as a professional touring act. They'd performed just 24 club shows during the previous year. While there were a couple of additional shows, between the band's industry debut on New Year's Eve '73/74 and commencing touring activities in early Feb. 1974, these don't really qualify as being part of a scheduled tour -- those shows are included at the end of the "Club Era" section and include the January 8 showcase at the briefly re-opened Village East (formerly Fillmore East), at which the band had been rehearsing since December; and a return visit to the Academy Of Music on January 26.

Hotter Than Hell Album Cover Front

On Tour: Hotter Than Hell

Where to place the break between the "KISS" tour and "Hotter than Hell" might be a slightly contentious question. After the final shows in August 1974, before the band went into the studio to record the new album? After the cluster of shows the band performed between the end of September and early October? Or after the break following that second mini-tour? With so few known set lists or accurate reviews from the period it's impossible to currently identify where the first appearance of material from the new album really occurred ... [Read More]
