Kiss concert chronology

The Alive! Tour was a concert tour by Kiss, in support of their 1975 live album Alive!. At the time of the European leg of the tour the Destroyer album was already released and the band performed songs from that album, but they wore the Alive costumes and had the Alive stage show.[1] At the time, the tour was referred to under the headline "Kiss tour", not "Alive! Tour" or "Destroyer Tour".

At the Cobo Hall show, Paul Stanley starts his guitar smashing ritual after "Let Me Go, Rock 'n' Roll", until it was eventually done after "Rock and Roll All Nite" in later years.
