Kiss Day at Cadillac Michigan

Celebrate KISS Day

A red letter day in Kisstory

Picking one day in Kisstory to celebrate The Hottest Band In The World should be an impossible task. How can you choose just one day from 5 decades? You could go with January 20th, date of the first ever Kiss concert. Maybe February 18th, the anniversary of the debut album release? How about 3 days later when their first television appeared? September 18th to mark the solo albums? October 28th when the multi-Oscar winning* movie “Kiss Meet The Phantom Of The Park” aired for the first time or 15th March, when the Sargent Pepper of glam rock, Destroyer, hit the shops. We could name hundreds. Make-up coming off or make-up going back on again. Ace rejoining the band. Kiss being inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Any of their birthdays (but mainly Ace’s). We could celebrate Gene’s arrival into America or something Wicked Lester related.

*OK, that might not be true, but clearly, it SHOULD be. C’mon Ace Frehley deserved an Oscar just for that laugh

Kiss Day

But… there’s no need for a debate because the 9th of October is OFFICIALLY KISS DAY. Well, in the town of Cadillac Michigan it is anyway. Where in 1975 Kiss rocked up to the local high school to celebrate their football team winning the state championships after listening to Kiss before every game. It’s an event of legendary status that hundreds of thousands claim to have been at, but only a few lucky ones were. Let the protagonists take it from here…

40th Anniversary Celebrations

A couple of years ago the town Cadillac celebrated the 40th anniversary. Sadly Kiss couldn’t be there but that didn’t stop the party, or Gene and Paul sending their love

Photos from the day

Some of the photographs from the day are just priceless (although surely nothing is without a price on the Planet Kiss?). And is a bit sad that the only person dressed as Peter Criss is errr… Peter Criss? Even the cheaply printed flyers sell for hundreds of dollars on eBay.
