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 from the North American leg of this tour were released in 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 tracks from their 1975 live album, Alive!. This is the first album cover to feature Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer in Kiss 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 well, 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 CD cover features all four current members in their new costumes, which had debuted at the start of this leg of the tour. The track list for this leg, in addition to including many songs from the previous Alive 35 shows, also includes 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".
