This awesome vintage rock tee is for the heavy metal band Kiss and it commemorates the group’s Alive/Worldwide Tour that took place in the late 90s. This reunion tour was the first one to feature original members Peter Criss and Ace Frehley since the Dynasty Tour in 1979. The aim of the tour was to be a rock and roll spectacle more dramatic than anything that had been staged by the group since their 1983 unmasking on MTV. They held a press conference aboard the USS Intrepid and MC’d by Conan O’Brien, announcing the tour, and nearly 40,000 tickets for the first show sold out in under an hour.
The band spent time working out to get into top physical shape and Frehley even underwent plastic surgery prior to the tour. Paul Stanley was quoted saying that they didn’t want fans to be disappointed seeing a bunch of fat guys in tights. They took the stage in full makeup and Love-Gun era outfits and brought back the iconic pyrotechnics and stunts of their early shows. This included Gene Simmon’s blood-spitting and fire-breathing, Frehley’s smoking guitar, and their platform risers.
Fits like a modern unisex adult over-sized Extra Large. There are several holes in the front and sleeve, see pics.
