The first public concert featuring the newly reunited Kiss was an hour-long warm-up show on June 15 for the annual KROQ Weenie Roast in Irvine, California , during which the band nearly ignited the stage of the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater.
There were many many nights when I was looking around the stage and going "This is magic. What was important about these shows is we had a much bigger task than people understood.
Our biggest competition was our history. We didn't have to be as good as we used to be. We had to be as good as people thought we were.
The show wasn't to be a replica of what we've done, it was to be what people imagined we had done. We had to be totally committed.
In terms of the stage show for the reunion tour, what we wanted to do was look at the '77 show in a sense as a pinnacle. That is what we chose to build on but not copy.
There are also elements from other shows too in the sense that there's bombs and the flying rig and the breaking of the guitars. At that time, it was the ultimate Kiss show in the sense that we looked at the show, which we thought was our best and said, "Top this.
In September , the reunited group issued Psycho Circus. Although it was the first album with the original lineup since 's Dynasty , the contributions of Frehley and Criss were minimal.

Kiss launched a U. Farewell Tour in March The Reunion tour made us the number one band again. We played to about two million people in one year.

Taking his place was previous Kiss drummer Singer who, in a move that was controversial among longtime fans, assumed Criss' Cat persona as the Farewell Tour continued.
In introducing the Kiss Kasket, Simmons quipped, "I love livin', but this makes the alternative look pretty damn good. NARAS has 12 chapters throughout the United States, hence 12 ceremonies throughout the year, with the honorees each being honored by the chapter closest to their residence.

Simmons and Stanley did not renew Criss' contract when it expired in March Criss, on his website, stated that "No one, again, no one has called me, or my attorney about an extension for future touring.

Nothing to prove to anyone. Just doing what comes naturally. Ignoring fashions, trends and with a personal vow from all of us: no rapping.

Besides, I'm not sure how to correctly pronounce 'wassup. Or maybe later! In October , a new studio album, titled Sonic Boom , was released. The song was Kiss' first single release in 11 years, since 's " You Wanted the Best ".

Reminiscent of the band's unfocused late-'70s period, few tracks on Psycho Circus featured all four members playing together most tracks were supplemented with session musicians , as the band seemed more interested in flooding the marketplace with merchandise yet again instead of making the music their top priority.
With rumors running rampant that the Psycho Circus Tour would be their last, the quartet announced in the spring of that they would be launching a U.
But on the eve of a Japanese and Australian tour in early , Peter Criss suddenly left the band once again, supposedly discontent with his salary.

The following year they released a collaborative single with the Japanese idol group Momoiro Clover Z. In , a career-spanning single-disc best-of, Kissworld , was released to coincide with a massive world tour of the same name.
