Great Moments in KISStory: June 17, 1995

Kiss open their 1995 Convention/Acoustic tour in Burbank, Ca., on this day in 1995. The tour was the beginning of the end for the then current line-up of Kiss, yet paved the way for the Kiss Alive/Worldwide/Reunion tour that would follow one year later. Peter Criss joined Kiss on stage to thunderous applause and sang "Hard Luck Woman" and "Nothin' To Lose." Check out the smiles on Gene and Paul's faces.
Check out the clip:

SIDE NOTE: The 1995 Kiss Convention tour was one of the most unique endeavors Kiss had done up to that point. With a $100 ticket price and well worth it,  Kiss performed an acoustic set playing songs from "(Music From)The Elder" to songs they've never played live. The all day event featured Kiss artifacts and costumes in glass cases as well as vendors selling Kiss merchandise. Bruce Kulick and Eric Singer both held guitar and drum clinics during the all day event.
