I don't have really any solid memories of the show except that, up until that point, I had no idea how freaking LOUD rock n' roll could get. Plus, the Sphinx-head backdrop. Oh, and chicks with big hair wearing either 1) not much, or 2) less than that. Still, not a bad way to break into the rock concert scene.
Remarkably, I found this clip:
Sure, I wish one of these were "Detroit Rock City" or "Love Gun" instead of the kinda late 80's lame KISS songs, but how freaking awesome that, after twenty-one years, I can find even a couple of bits of this show on YouTube. Remarkable.
* I assume as part of a student activity series because it was free?
** Remember, this was before the big KISS revival of the late 1990's when they decided to go back to full Kabuki makeup and pyrotechnics and all that. This show didn't have the nostalgic fans you saw at those shows. These were the fans that had been with KISS through the long haul.
