Classic Rock 96-1 listeners Share their historic memories of “THE KISS EXPERIENCE” including Longtime Tyler morning radio host Bill Davis, who was at that first show:
- Bill Davis of Bellingham, Washington “I'll really be dating myself here Kenny.....saw them just after Alive! was released on Nov 8th 1975 in Texas Hall at UT Arlington. You could feel the heat from the fire pots on stage all the way to the back of the auditorium. I think it was sold out...the place only held about 2500 as I recall.
- Gus Garza of Duncanville “Met them in 1983 and went to my first Kiss show same evening at Dallas Convention Center! Lick it up tour!
- D'Ann Stinedurf of Farmersville “My second concert! KISS Farewell Tour of 2000. Never seen anything like it! Pretty sure it was at the Starplex.
- Keith Cabaniss of Springtown “First was Oct. 3 1979 at Tarrant County Convention Center. Next, March 9, 1983, DCC Creatures of the Night tour. 10th anniversary, Vandenberg opened I believe. Lick it up tour 1984, Wendy O opened it was at Reunion Arena.
- Stacy Shew of Tyler “1979 - Kiss, with Breathless as the opener at Tarrant County Convention Center. Saw them again, no make-up on the Animalize tour with Queensryche January of 1985, Then later with Skid Row and Ted Nugent at the Starplex in April 2000.
- Jason Waller of Gladewater “KISS (with Styx) opening up for them was my first ever rock concert September 4th of 1977 at the Tarrant County Convention Center in Ft. Worth and it was freaking awesome! I was 15 years old and it was a school night, so I had to catch a ride to Fort Worth with some upperclassmen from school (who could drive). There may have been some adult beverages consumed that night (drinking age was 18 then). When Gene Simmons ate fire and then spit it out (to "Firehouse," I think)....it was wild! They closed with my favorite KISS sing, "Rock & Roll All Night"...and then their encore included another of my favorites, "Detroit, Rock City" and "Beth." (Beth was very popular and there was a good looking upperclassmen named "Beth," that was in our high school band that everyone was thinking about when they sang it.
Many years later,in 2009, when my oldest daughter turned 15, I took her to her first rock concert - KISS, at American Airlines Center!
- Bill Davis of Bellingham, Washington “I'll really be dating myself here Kenny.....saw them just after Alive was released on Nov 8th 1975 in Texas Hall at UT Arlington. You could feel the heat from the fire pots on stage all the way to the back of the auditorium. I think it was sold out...the place only held about 2500 as I recall.
- Johnny Lathrop of Whitehouse, “Great parenting”! The kids first Rock show! Can’t think of a better concert than KISS to teach rock music appreciation, than this show with Def Leppard in 2014”.
