Get ready to be rocked at the 'KISS Cadillac 40th Anniversary'
In 1975 KISS rocked the town of Cadillac when they came to their High School's homecoming and October 9th & 10th marks the KISS Cadillac 40th anniversary.
Wednesday morning 7&4's Alyssa Hearin was live at Cadillac High School to show us how they're reliving the legendary day KISS rocked their school.
It all started when assistant football coach Jim Neff began playing their music in the locker room the year before and the team started winning.
Neff reached out to the band and asked if they would come to homecoming, and to his surprise, they did.
Starting on Friday several KISS-themed events will take place including a re-creation of the concert with a KISS tribute band "Mr. Speed" and the unveiling of a permanent KISS monument.
