THIS DAY IN KISSTORY 1995
FIRST OFFICIAL US KISS CONVENTION
On this day in KISSTORY - June 17, 1995 - KISS began the North American leg of the first Official Worldwide KISS Convention Tour in Burbank, California. Peter Criss makes a surprise appearance at the Convention and joins Gene, Paul, Bruce and Eric on stage, singing two KISS classics -"Hard Luck Woman" and "Nothin' To Lose".
The unique and revolutionary KISS Convention tour featured a traveling KISS Museum displaying vintage KISS stage outfits, instruments, and memorabilia. Performances by KISS tribute bands, KISS collectors/dealers buying, selling and trading KISS merchandise, precedes an evening appearance by KISS themselves, appearing live and in person, conducting a question and answer session, autograph signing, and a two-hour plus unplugged set comprised mostly of spontaneous fan requests. Both Eric Singer and Bruce Kulick also performed clinics at the events.
Official KISS Conventions were held in Australia, Canada and the United Sates.
