Seriously? A drum solo. And they never show the drummer?!? The person who edited this needs to be kicked in the nads.
Nate Bauer
What always amazes me when I watch old Kiss footage is that even though Ace was the party animal, he was almost always spot on when playing live. If he was messed up on stage, he was still able to play. It was Paul who was sloppy. Just sayin! I still love this old stuff, sloppy or not.
Tomi Valkonen
Kiss in the 1970s was favourite era. I wish i could have seen them live back then.
Scratch McGee
Holy Crap!!! I was at this concert. It was my 1st concert when I was 14yrs old. I'll never forget it. I remember people buying bags of weed in the restrooms.
Cornbob Rimlove
Gene was 27 Paul was 24 Ace was 25 Peter was 31
Randy Young
As usual Gene and Paul sucking...While the dual stoners are killing it!
Tbarr73
I loved how gene and paul lambasted ace and peter, yet they were the only ones competent on their instruments.

I love this concert but I noticed Gene's bass has the tonal quality of a elephant fart during this show.
Dangerous Toy
I went to this show when I was 13,I had 7th row floor seats,it my first concert and I was in heaven.It was my birthday gift from my mom,she was so cool!She knew I was a BIG KISS FREAK!My bedroom was wall to wall kiss posters,pictures from all the rock mags,and every album! Boy I miss those days,concerts were fun,kids walking around holding bongs,people drunk throwing up,passed out in the lobby,selling drugs in the bathroom,the whole building full of pot smoke,chicks showing their tits on the house screen.It was great times....Wish I could go back to those days,it was so much fun!✌️😎💋

The tix were about $10 and you didn't have to pay extra to be first in line to buy a crappy T shirt like on the upcoming Kiss tour. I think Paul wasn't even wearing panties back then. Gene's fire sword didn't cost tens of thousands of dollars to some fan with way to much cash. (look it up) ahhh, the days when Kiss hadn't figured out how to milk the merchandise machine to the hilt.
Alberto Chagas
3:38 Paul Stanley wrong Solo. Ace Watch.
RedneckSpaceMan
1976 They're still a young hungry band. As early as1977 things would begin to unravel.
Blk Mtl Stv
Paul hit a sour note on guitar on Detroit rock city . Ace will turn around and look at him - Opps !
T W
I would take kiss making mistakes any day over lip syncing
Blake Johnson
Does Gene ever pull off the bass part to Detroit Rock City correctly? Even once? Maybe he should pay more attention to his playing and less to jumping around like a frog and sticking his tongue out.
Napolion Dynmomite
the passive aggressive slapnuts who complain, kiss are not what they were in the seventies, are ALSO NOTwhat THEY were inthe seventies. The music, concert industry in not what it was.in the seventies
A B Cars N’ Guitars
Ace Frehley IS kiss. Without him, these guys are just bunch of a flamboyant douchbags.
Jeff Cornelius
September 8, 1976 Freedom Hall Louisville with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band and Artful Dodger.
ändrew Salter
Amazing to watch kiss at there peak but a sad reminder of how far they have fallen!!!
don barlow
why does paul have to introduce every song just go right int the other
Johnny Rotten
To all the guitarists out there, did you hear that pinch harmonic at 38:54 ? - it was spine chilling to me. Gosh Ace was............ace.
Bill Dent
I was working at warehouse records when the kiss live album came in. Best album cover ever took it home that night I'll Always Love deuce
Michael Perry
This band, this album & tour - an absolute dream for me in '76. But, I never had a chance to see them live and all these YouTube videos remind me they're a much better band when my exposure was limited to the countless hours playing & replaying the album, and so many more countless hours in 7-Eleven pouring over the still photos in the magazines.
Avalanche Fan
This is the KISS I remember, wonderful memories.
Lilly Veizaga
Kiss is the ultimate group Bad ass of 🎸 rock. Kiss rules.
Eric Barnes
My first KISS show. 11 days before this in Indianapolis. Thanks for posting
Martin Comesaña
Something is wrong with Gene´s bass lines on Detroit...who cares anyway.
Keith Yo
This Is KISS!
Frank Wilson
I saw them in Lakeland,fla. In December,1976,my first cocert also,It blew this away. Ace got shocked coming by down the steps,and wrote Shock Me.
Joe Manhas
You want the best you got the best the hottest band in the world KISS!!
Quint Bromley
Ace and Peter all day.
Marham Dollah
1976 l am 13 years old.. this is KISS young😊😊
GOD
why does everything look so shiny in the 70s on camera
Clifford Amey
This is back when they were a real band and not parody of themselves.
Jonah Jones
I saw the UK leg of the Destroyer tour. It was their first gig in Europe. Manchester, England, May 1976
Jason Jobb
I was always scared that they would fall down the stairs and we'd be sent homebecause they'd get hurt. Glad when they made it! KI$$ was so good for my youth! (5th grade '77)
josez1
Peter Criss loves that cow bell... and sounded great !!
Guitar Junkie
A ton of sloppy playing by Gene & Paul. Mostly Paul. Thankfully, they are using tracks for the 2nd, 3rd & 4th farewell tours.
Tracy's Resume Writing Service
I have been a huge fan of KISS since I was a teenager in the 1970's.
Roc Johnson
Ah yes, the androgynous Paul "Talmudic" Stanley
Ronald Williams
Kiss was the band that got me into rock
GrnFriday Grn
Why no camera on Peter during Black Diamond?
Chris Zealotes
This is why I love YouTube....we now have access to these amazing live gigs from history. Incalculable rock historical significance.
Chris Zealotes
The year I discovered Destroyer and one of their best tracks, Detroit Rock City.
saintluisito
... and Stanley is not gay/bisexual ... because he was "banging chicks" left and right ... and neither him nor G. Simmons used drugs or abused alcohol back then ... only Frehley and Criss were the "party animals" ... ... because Stanley/Simmons said so ... and we're supposed to believe it ... ... sure ...
Lilly Veizaga
Kiss is aewsomenessk.sooooooooooooooooocool.😃
Tim Padleki
Paul Stanley. Yeesh! Faggiest moves in rock and roll. Hands down!
Gary Unsworth
Quality KISS without a dout
ron polley

Ace's solo kicked ass on this one : )

its hard to believe that the 1976 mind could take this in.

Why is Peter singing the chorus, but the camera is staying on Gene so much?
Allen Locke
They were at their zenith or close to it by this point. A lot of fun to be a part of that experience. They were riding that wave, hanging on for dear life. As much as they toured and record company demands, photo shoots, press interviews, television and whatnot. The average person would just buckle. It's a testament to Gene and Pauls work ethic that they have stayed at it so long. They were far beyond driven. Ace and Peter not so much...Even though that chemistry of the original four could never be replicated, it's hard to blame Gene and Paul for carrying on the best they could. Without that roar from the crowd I'm sure you would begin to jones really hard for that after a while. They were putting their whole life force into it and the other two are falling off and not able to hold up their end, had to be to just maddening. Even, with the cleanest living; you are not going to sustain that kind of energy forever. It's hard to blame them for trying. I will always love this era of Kiss...The Hottest Band In The Land! KISS !!!!!!!!
1gitarz
Horrible on so many levels !
Nick Johnson
3:39 ...Ace is like "WTF Paul"
The Swinging Door
What's up with the weird camera angles?
Alessandro Pozzi
3:40 wtf?...lol
legendhasitstudio
Chris did a drum solo in 1977 as good as it gets
Scott F
Major clam at 3:39. Ace looks over like “Paul what are you doing?”
Bearded Jagger
1:08:40 they are every bit as tight as Skynyrd was at their high point in '77. I saw Kiss in '76 on the Destroyer tour and '79 on the Dynasty tour in Savannah, Georgia.
legendhasitstudio
Seen kiss live with a.c./ dc Dec 1976
Thers1
Louis Armstrong on backing vocals
Mike Kelly
I saw then on this tour in Hawaii and it blew my mind, now all these years later it seems so hokey...I must admit that it was Gene who drew my attention to this band more than anything else...
entropy156
Ouch....what the hell was going on at the end of the dual guitar solo thing in Detroit Rock City...?
mojo dog123
Wow I guess that's one way to play the bass. Lololololol at least he looks cool.
Perpetual.Art
Ouch!! 3:39 🤯
Trumpenstein
The question is, why on earth do they continue to parody themselves?
Lilly Veizaga
They look damn good with Or without make up. Doesnt matter they still are Handsome men.
P Daniel
Ace 3:40 who sabatoged my amp?
97warlock ismyname

Rook The Texan
Worst camera work ever.
Ed
Have always loved these guys. Saw them around this same timeframe. Always wondered who told Paul he could sing though. LOL.
furycustom73
Youth memories
Brian O'Brien
Damn ! They butchered that guitar solo in Detroit Rock City and glaringly at 3:38-3:39 I'm pretty sure it was Paul judging by Ace's crocodile eye he gave Paul.
Chip Tovey
There wasn’t a time that Paul Stanley sounded good live. Sloppy vocalist, and a sloppy guitarist!
Joely Barish
So that's what Paul's real hair looks like!!
Gary King
What a show, Shades of the movie "Detroit Rock City" for me . I was 16 in '76, I would've cut something off to have seen them.
Stig Henningsen
From back when Paul Stanley had one of the greatest voices in rock.
Mike Skillings
Best God Of Thunder I Have Herd Yet
Brian O'Brien
Ace made KISS. They would've never made it without him and they haven't been shit since he left with the exception of the Reunion tour.
Steve Taylor
Worst lead singer in Rock history and what is that accent? Horrific.
Edgar Arenas
Ace Freelly lead guitar!
Alchemist
And now...the CRAPPIEST BASS PLAYER IN THE WORLD Gene "Old baggy grandpa ballbag" Simmons!!!
Mr. Bucksarken
Still showing the majority of the two ego maniacs Paul & Gene.
426 Biggie
only 1 musician on this stage and it aint drummin', on bass or the tranny.
T K
"You got got, nothin' to lose" But Deuce is the best tune. I remember the first time I heard it back in third grade off Alive...
John Doe
Horridness
Mazn Kuldinow
The original big stage band. When I was a little toddler, they were the shiznay. But all the AC DC jean jacket brats hated them. When I became a teen, it was Quiet Riot and Ratt. But everything changed when a band I was embarrassed to say I never hear of came to town with their entourage of carousers. The concert didn't sell out and like with a lot of shows at this little venue, I got to see it free. The band was called, THE GRATEFUL DEAD.
Alessandro Pozzi
3.39 wtf...lol
V4EKKRINH4RT
This is great , but can't ever see Ace... :(
Nacho Fnub
Not their best performance that's for sure...
John C
Holy fck!! So Paul's voice was gone by 1976?
