Kiss Alive 35 is a series of 2 CD live albums, each containing a recording of the complete set from a European show on the KISS Alive/35 World Tour from 2008. A second set of recordings are also planned to be available from the North American leg of this tour in Fall/Winter 2009.

Album information[edit]

The discs are recorded and distributed through Concert Live. There is a limited run of 1500 CDs for each recorded show. The set lists differ slightly between shows, but they are mostly made up of the all the tracks they played on their 1975 live album, Alive!. The album cover features for the first time ever on a Kiss album cover Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer in make up. All of the Alive 35 albums are now out of print. Some of the compilations are sold out as well.

A second North American leg of the tour was planned for Fall/Winter 2009. These shows were available as live recordings, much like the Concert Live discs, except they were released by Concert Online. They are available on a 2-CD set as well as on an exclusive leather wristband USB flash drive in 320 kbps MP3 format. The cover for the CD set features all 4 current members in their new costumes, which debuted at the start of this leg of the tour. The tracklist for this leg, in addition to including many songs from the previous Alive 35 shows, will also include some songs from their 2009 studio album Sonic Boom.

The second leg of the tour has seemingly eliminated "I Was Made For Lovin' You" in favor of "Modern Day Delilah" and has also added "Watchin' You" to the standard setlist. For several dates, starting with the show in Montreal on October 1, the opener was "King of the Night Time World", and "Nothin' To Lose" was dropped in favor of "I Stole Your Love". In Greenville, South Carolina, "Calling Dr. Love" and "Shock Me" were added to the setlist, taking the place of "C'Mon and Love Me" and "Got To Choose".
