Dressed To Kill Album Cover Front

On Tour: Dressed To Kill

KISS' "Hotter Than Hell" tour had somewhat abruptly ended in Santa Monica, CA on February 1, 1975 after which the band returned to New York to complete work on their next studio album. With recording of their third studio album completed, and its release imminent, the band was ready to continue their progression up the musical food-chain on the touring circuit. With pockets of popularity and the continued challenge of placement with suitable headliners the group started to be booked more and more as a headliner in their own right during this period. Before the start of the proper "Dressed To Kill" tour (Kenosha, WI, March 27), the band played two clusters of shows. The first, Feb. 20-22, encompassed three shows in the mid-west: St. Louis, Chicago (a review of this show with Man & James Gang appears in Rolling Stone Magazine #184, Apr. 1975), and Schererville.

Alive! Album Cover Front

October

On Tour: KISS Alive! (Tour)

In a January 1976 interview Paul suggested, "'Alive!' was like a transitional album, because we knew what we wanted to do, but we needed someone to work with, you see. The whole idea of the live album was to make a cutoff point between old KISS and new KISS, so that people would be able to say, "Oh, that came after the live album.' The live album was the synopsis of everything that went on before; it says, 'Here's what KISS has done to date, now they're gonna go on'" (Bloomington Gulcher, 1/76). The same sentiment is very much true of the tour that supported the album in that it drew a line in the sand between the "old" KISS and the "new" KISS that emerged during the summer of 1976.
