The Early Days of Kiss was the first tour of 1970s American rock band, Kiss. During this time, Kiss hired Bill Aucoin as their manager, and were then signed to Casablanca Records. From October to November, the band recorded their self-titled debut album, which was released on March 18, 1974. The December 22 show at Coventry in Queens is the earliest filmed live performance by Kiss as described in Kissology Volume 1 and Volume 3. During the New Year's Eve show at The Academy of Music in New York City, Gene Simmons' hair caught on fire while he was fire breathing.
