live the excitement of KISS' 1996 Alive Worldwide Reunion tour!
Editor and Die-Hard KISS fan Andrew Sgambati has put together the Live concert package that should have been released in early 1997 to document the live onslaught of the Reunion Tour. Assembled from 10 different professionally shot shows, ALIVE 96 transports you back to 1996 giving you a truly "ALIVE!" experience.
ALIVE 96 is a fan-film and will never be sold or distributed for profit. Incognito Films claims no affiliation to KISS or the copyright holders. For more KISS visit KISSonline.com.


And BTW, it is "Clipgrabbable"

I saw them on this tour and the 2000 tour as well and some the early 80s tours. I was a little to young to see them in the 70s!

Thanks for the link. I don't quite qualify as a fan (especially not of their off-state activities) but I did enjoy a lot of their music when it first came out.

Thanks for the link. Unlike the rest of you haters, I'll definitely enjoy this. I passed on tickets to this tour from someone who worked for Ticketmaster b/c they were too expensive ($60 - HA!). I've seen them three times since, but never saw the original line-up. I had tickets to their Atlanta show this past September, which was obviously cancelled. I chose a refund vs. having my tickets roll over until next year's postponed date.

The supposedly cool kids in my 8th grade class loved Kiss. This would have been 78-79 time frame. I thought then, as I do now, that they sucked.

I was a hardcore Kiss fan starting in 1975. My best friend got me hooked. Back then I tried to argue that their music was great. It wasn’t. It was the visuals. It was all about the show.

I first saw then in 1979 at the Chicago International Ampitheater. Judas Priest opened for them. JP played so loud my ears felt like they were bleeding. Not good and loud. Just painful.

When Kiss took to the stage, you realized what money brings to rock bands. Crystal clear sound. Booming bass and drums.

It was the Dynasty Tour. Over the top. Garish costumes. But to this 15 year old, it was all heaven.

I saw them again in 1997. Original line up, back in makeup and classic costumes. It was a great concert and that’s where it all should have ended.

Saw them again at the Four Seasons in Cedar Rapids, had to be late 98 or early 99. Not a great show. I went with my younger brother. Told myself that this was really the last time.

My brother talked me into 1 more time at the Target Center in Minneapolis in 2000. They missed the scheduled night so we were stuck there for an extra day. That was a foretelling of what was going to be a @#$%& concert. Sebastian Bach, Ted Nugent and then Kiss played. The seats were horrid. Nosebleed section. Sound bouncing and doing strange things in row X. There isn’t a row Y and a row Z.

That was a great way to end. Complete disappointment. No need to try one more time.



I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making
him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher
(1828-1910)

Nothing wrong with a good show, even if the music isn't!

Thanks for the link!!
The first time I saw them live was on the unplugged tour in 1995. I was beyond myself...
That lineup, with Kulick and Singer could go head to head with any other band.
