Kiss Tickets

Kiss tickets - Kiss Tour

Kiss Schedule

Rooted in the intentionally exaggerated theatrics of Alice Cooper and the sordid hard rock of bands like the New York Dolls, Kiss became a fave of teens in the '70s. Most teens were enamored with the Kiss' facade, not their actual music. Garbed in outrageous makeup and costumes, Kiss crafted a hypnotizing show complete with smoke bombs, dry ice, blood spitting, intricate lighting and fire breathing. But even though their initial infatuation started with the colorful imagery, and smoke and mirrors, teens were still drawn to Kiss' music. It was a commercially intoxicating blend of hard rock fueled by ballads and loud guitars. It was a sound that set the pace for both pop-metal and arena rock that ruled the late '80s.

Over four decades later, Kiss hasn't lost its edge or ability to captivate audiences. They are still rockin' arenas and clubs today! To catch one of their shows, just check right here on StubHub for their latest concert listings. It's that simple!


Kiss Background

Kiss was the pet project of Gene Simmons (vocals, bass) and Paul Stanley (vocals, rhythm guitar). They used to be in a band together called Wicked Lester, which was based out of New York. The pair enlisted Peter Criss (drummer) as well as Ace Frehly (guitarist), who replied to an ad in The Village Voice. They made their debut in Manhattan in 1973. Bill Aucoin, Flipside producer, presented them with a management deal shortly after the show. Two weeks later, the band inked a deal with the Casablanca record label. Their eponymous album arrived in 1974, which landed at No. 87 on the U.S. charts. By the spring of 1975, they had issued three albums and toured exhaustively all over the nation, cultivating a tremendous fan base along the way. Harvested from their numerous shows, Alive! contributed to the band's status as superstars. Released in 1975, the album yielded a Top 10 spot and its track, "Rock 'N' Roll All Nite," landed at No. 12. Destroyer followed in the spring of 1976 and earned the group its first platinum album. The album highlighted the rock ballad, "Beth."

At the height of the Kiss hysteria, thousands of pieces of merchandise saturated the marketplace - from board games to pinball machines to masks and makeup. Marvel even issued two comic books accompanied by a live-action TV movie, billed Kiss Meet the Phantom of the Park. In 1977 Kiss was coined the most popular band in the U.S. by a Gallup poll. Kiss maintained their mysterious persona by never appearing in public without their makeup, and their popularity continued to boom. By this time, the band's fan club membership had rounded out to six figures. In 1978, all four Kiss members put out their own solo albums, which arrived on the exact same day in October. Simmons' record did the best, scoring the No. 22 spot on the charts, yet his comrades' efforts didn't go unnoticed either. All of them settled into the Top 50. In 1979, Dynastywas issued and carried on their platinum momentum. It was also their last record that was made with the original lineup intact. Criss exited the band in 1980. In the summer of 1980, Kiss Unmasked arrived, cut with the help of Anton Fig - a session drummer. Eric Carr served as Criss' replacement. He signed on with the band just in time for the launch of their 1980 global tour. The year 1981 brought the release of Music from the Elder, the first album featuring Carr. Frehley followed Criss' lead and separated from the band after the album's release. Vinnie Vincent replaced Frehley in 1982. Creatures of the Night came out shortly after that. With the limited success of their last few albums, Kiss decided to step things up. They revealed their true selves, sans makeup, for the 1983 album Lick It Up. The publicity worked perfectly, as proven by the album's platinum certification - their first in four years. A year later, Animalize, came out and the group had recovered their success. Vincent exited after Animalize was issued. Mark St. John took his place. Soon after, St. John became ill and was forced to leave the band. Bruce Kulick signed on with Kiss in 1984 as their new lead guitarist.

For the remainder of the decade, Kiss continued to churn out a string of top-selling albums. The 1990 power ballad, "Forever," contributed to the band's success, which served as their biggest track since "Beth." A new album was set into motion also in 1990 but Eric Carr became extremely sick with cancer. He passed away in 1991. Eric Singer eventually took his place and the album Revenge was cut in 1992. The album earned gold certification and was a Top 10 success.

Alive III came out the following year but did not live up to the caliber of their two prior efforts. The original lineup reunited in 1996 for a global tour, which included Stanley, Frehley, Simmons and Criss. They even went back to their famous makeup and theatrics. The 1996 tour was a huge hit. In 1998, the newly reunited band released Psycho Circus. The tour that followed to support the album release was also successful although record sales weren't as great as they hoped.

The band announced that they were going to call it quits by the end of 2001. A box set was additionally scheduled for release later that year. The merchandise continued to soak the marketplace, which included the outrageous "Kiss Kasket." Fans didn't hear much from the band for the remainder of 2001, but in 2002, Gene Simmons made waves during an NPR interview. He slammed the organization and criticized the host, Terry Gross. Simmons was trying to get some publicity for his autobiography at the time, which angered bandmate Ace Frehley because of the stirring remarks made about him. Frehley expressed his anger by being a no-show at the anniversary show of American Bandstand. Tommy Thayer stood in for Frehley, wearing a wig. No one was duped by the act, and as a whole, the appearance turned out to be a huge embarrassment for Kiss. Alas, the band forged ahead with tours. In 2008, they stepped back into the recording studio to redo their hits. The result was Jigoku-Retsuden - aka KISSology or Kiss Klassics. Exclusive to Japan initially, it made its way to the U.S. a year later as a bonus disc for the Sonic Boom studio album. Monster came out in 2012, as the bands 20th studio album.
