KISS Played 18-Song Set on Paul Stanley's Birthday in 1977

Paul Stanley of KISS turns 69-years-old today, January 20, but The Starchild is ageless. Stanley has been a member of KISS since they founded the band in 1973. In honor of his Birthday, we're taking you back to the pinnacle years of their career when KISS performed a 18-song set on this day in 1977.

KISS were on the last legs of their Rock and Roll Over Tour in support of their fifth studio album of the same name. The tour had many firsts including the first time they played Madison Square Garden and the first time they performed "Beth" with Peter Criss on vocals (the recorded track is just an instrumental.)

On Stanley's birthday they arrived in Lincoln, Nebraska to perform at Pershing Center. They ripped through the tour's staple 18-song setlist, firing off with "Detroit Rock City" and slaying through songs off of Destroyer, KISS and Rock and Roll and Over.

Embedded content is no longer available.

They spiced up the set by peppering in a Guitar Solo, Bass Solo AND Drum Solo, per KISS tradition. The main set ended on "Rock and Roll All Nite" before they revealed their three-song encore where fans got to hear Criss's "Beth." They closed out the show with "Black Diamond."

We hope The Starchild is partying all day and rock and rolling all night!
