DescriptionKiss, Bob Seger 1976 Nashville, TN Concert Handbill. A handbill (printed on blue paper) for the Nashville stop on Kiss' legendary tour behind their Destroyer LP. Using the picture of the band that adorns the cover of their Alive! live album, this is when Kiss became the titans they are still seen as.
With fire-breathing, guitars smashing, smoke, and a drum set rising, this was absolutely the best. And their fans got the best. Gene, Paul, Ace, and Peter were all at the top of their game, playing material from their first three studio LPs, in addition to the standouts from Destroyer. Kiss was no longer this great live act with poor-selling albums. They were now something bigger than a rock band.
Hitting up Nashville at the end of July of 1976, they had up-and-comer Bob Seger was the opening act, along with unbilled opening act, UFO.
Measures 8 1/2" x 10 7/8" and grades to Very Good Plus condition for just small amounts of handling around the edges, a two-inch vertical crease (that doesn't break the black color) along the lower right edge, and a slight surface blemish or two.
