John det kortlivade metalbandet White Tiger. Stanley om Sonic Boom i november I november sade Stanley till rockfotografen Ross Halfin att man arbetade med ett nytt album.
Stanley skulle själv producera albumet, som skulle ha ett "riktigt tals Kiss-sound". I juli meddelade Stanley att det nya albumet Sonic Boom skulle komma att ges ut den 6 oktober Den 19 augusti släpptes den första singeln, "Modern Day Delilah", som var gruppens första sedan "You Wanted the Best" gavs ut Stanley och Simmons sade att han var som gruppens femte medlem.
Simmons uttalade sig om albumet: "[det] kommer att vara nästa steg efter Sonic Boom. Monster gavs till slut ut i oktober Dessa konserter följdes av besök i Europa, Nordamerika och Japan.
Den 15 augusti tillkännagavs det att Kiss hade köpt en andel av ett nytt lag i American Football League. Laget lades ned Den 28 januari gavs singeln "Yume no Ukiyo ni Saite Mi na" ut, som var ett samarbete med den japanska tjejgruppen Momoiro Clover Z.
Det har varit motstridiga historier kring ett nytt studioalbum av Kiss. Sebastian Bach försvarade Kiss och sade att bandet inte mimade under den konsert han bevittnat.
Under en konsert i Los Angeles den 4 mars dedicerade bandet "Do You Love Me" till Kobe Bryant och de övriga som avled vid helikopterkraschen i Calabasas den 26 januari Kiss har vanligtvis klassificerats under genrerna hard rock , [ 69 ] skräckrock [ 70 ] och heavy metal.
Senare, i början av talet, övergav man detta sound, [ 72 ] och i mitten av talet var Kiss tillbaka till sitt originalsound. Den allra första tiden, , bar Stanley en sminkning han kallade "Bandit".
Gruppens tidigare gitarrister Bruce Kulick och Mark St. John är de enda medlemmarna i Kiss historia som inte har uppträtt med smink. Konsertturnerandet i världen ändrades av Kiss praxis att uppföra unikt designade scenografier.
Samtidigt utökade Kiss sin försäljning av merchandise under konserter, med varor märkta med bland annat Kiss logotyp. För mer information, se Lista över medlemmar i Kiss.
The early years of Kiss were far from glamorous. We rode in a station wagon hundreds of miles every day. We would take turns driving and sleeping in the back.
We ate burgers at roadside taverns. We stopped and peed on the side of long stretches of highway when we couldn't find a town anywhere near.
Becoming a rock star was better than anything and beyond anything I ever imagined. There were moments of doubt for me that we were gonna make it.
This broadcast included Simmons's first televised interview, a conversation with Mike Douglas in which Simmons declared himself "evil incarnate", eliciting uncomfortable reactions from a confused studio audience.
Fellow Jewish-American guest Totie Fields said it would be humorous if beneath all the make-up Simmons was "just a nice Jewish boy ". Simmons responded, "You should only know", to which Fields replied, "I do.
You can't hide the hook ", a reference to the stereotypical "Jewish" nose. Despite the publicity and constant touring, Kiss initially sold just 75, copies.
Meanwhile, the group and Casablanca Records were losing money quickly. The band while touring stopped in Los Angeles in August to begin recording its second album, Hotter Than Hell , which was released on October 22, With Hotter Than Hell quickly dropping off the charts, Kiss was pulled from its tour to quickly record a new album.
Casablanca head Bogart stepped in to produce the next album, trading in the murky, distorted sound of Hotter Than Hell for a cleaner and slightly poppier sound.
Dressed to Kill , released on March 19, , fared slightly better commercially than Hotter Than Hell.
It also contained what later became the band's signature song, " Rock and Roll All Nite ". Although Kiss albums had not proved to be big sellers, the band was quickly gaining a reputation for its live performances.
Kiss concerts featured such spectacles as Simmons spitting "blood" an effect made primarily from raw egg whites, strawberry syrup and red food coloring and "breathing fire" spitting flammable liquid at a torch , Frehley soloing as his guitar burst into flames light and smoke bombs placed inside the guitar , Criss's elevating drum riser that emitted sparks, Stanley's Townshend -style guitar smashing, and pyrotechnics throughout the show.
By mid, Casablanca was almost bankrupt, and Kiss was in danger of losing its record contract. Both parties desperately needed a commercial breakthrough if they were to survive.
I saw a pattern emerging with us on the road. Every night, I'd ask somebody before the show, "How are we doing? All of a sudden it was becoming the norm.
For me the first realization that things were on an upswing was when we played the Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio. Before the show I went on stage, looked out through the curtain and saw this big crowd and said to myself, "My God, this is really happening!
Kiss wanted to express the excitement felt at its concerts which its studio albums had so far failed to do with its first live album.
It was the first version of the song with a guitar solo, and this recording has become the best-known version. It is also the basis of most covers, such as the cover by Poison in In recent years the band admitted that additional audience noise had been added to the album, as well as overdubs on select guitar and vocal spots, not to deceive fans, but to add more "excitement and realism" to the record.
The success of Alive! Following this success, Kiss partnered with producer Bob Ezrin , who had previously worked with Alice Cooper.
The result was Destroyer released March 15, , Kiss's most musically ambitious studio album to date. Destroyer , with its rather intricate production using an orchestra, choir, and numerous tape effects , was a departure from the raw sound of the first three studio albums.
Album art was designed by Ken Kelly , who had drawn Tarzan and Conan the Barbarian and also produced album covers for acts such as Rainbow and Manowar.
Only when the ballad " Beth ", the B-side of the single " Detroit Rock City ", began to gain more airplay on FM radio did the album's sales rebound.
The single was subsequently reissued with the A- and B-sides reversed. The show, co-produced by Bill Aucoin, helped introduce Kiss to an even wider audience.
In addition to the three songs, Kiss was the subject of a brief comedic "interview" conducted by Paul Lynde.
This included Lynde noting, when hearing the members' first names, "Oh, I love a good religious group. Two more highly successful studio albums were released in less than a year: Rock and Roll Over November 11, and Love Gun June 30, A second live album, Alive II , was released on October 14, All three albums were certified platinum soon after their release.
In Japan, Kiss performed five sold-out shows at Tokyo's Budokan Hall , breaking the previous record of four held by the Beatles.
In May , Kiss made the first of its many comics appearances, in Howard the Duck issue 12, published by Marvel Comics. The first Kiss compilation album, Double Platinum , was issued on April 2, This double album included many remixed versions of the band's hits, as well as "Strutter '78", a re-recorded version of a song from the group's first album.
At Bogart's request, this version of the song featured a disco influence. During this period, Kiss merchandise became a substantial source of income for the group.
Some of the products released included a pair of comic books issued by Marvel the first contained ink mixed with actual blood donated by the group , a pinball machine, dolls, "Kiss Your Face Makeup" kits, Halloween masks, board games , lunchboxes, trading cards and many other pieces of memorabilia.
Membership in the Kiss Army , the band's fan club, was in the six figures. Kiss was at its commercial peak by To that end, an ambitious, two-pronged strategy was devised for The first part involved the simultaneous release of four solo albums from the members of Kiss.
Although Kiss has claimed that the solo albums were intended to ease rising tensions within the band, its record contract did in fact call for four solo records, each of them counting as half an album toward the group's five-record commitment.
It was the first time that all current members of a rock band had released solo albums on the same day.
For the band members, it was a chance to showcase their individual musical styles and tastes outside of Kiss, and in some cases to collaborate with contemporary artists.
Simmons's was the most diverse of the four, featuring hard rock, ballads, Beatles -influenced pop and a cover version of " When You Wish upon a Star " from the Disney film Pinocchio.
The solo albums were released on September 18, Of the four, Frehley's album was the most successful, and spawned the only resulting hit single, a cover of " New York Groove ", written by Russ Ballard and originally performed by Hello.
The second part of Kiss's and Aucoin's plan called for the band to appear in a film that would cement its image of larger-than-life rock-and-roll superheroes.
Filming commenced in the spring of Although the project was proposed to the band as a cross between A Hard Day's Night and Star Wars , the final result fell far short of those expectations.
The script underwent numerous rewrites, and the band particularly Criss and Frehley grew increasingly frustrated with the filmmaking process.
It was released theatrically, after many changes, outside the U. The band members were unhappy with the finished film, and would speak about their filmmaking experience in later interviews with a mix of humorous embarrassment and regret.
They felt that the film portrayed them more as clowns than superheroes. The artistic failure of the film led to a rift between the band and Aucoin.
Kiss' first album of new material in two years, Dynasty , continued the band's platinum streak. Session drummer Anton Fig performed almost all the percussion on the album while Criss recovered from an automobile accident.
The only song to feature Criss's drumming was "Dirty Livin ' ", on which he also sang lead. Billed as "The Return of Kiss", the Dynasty Tour was expected by Kiss and its management to build on the success of previous tours.
Plans were drawn up for a Kiss-themed traveling amusement park called "Kiss World", but were abandoned because of the immense costs involved;  however, "The Return of Kiss" saw a marked decline in attendance.
The crowds on this tour were much younger than previous audiences had been, with many preadolescent children in Kiss make-up with their mothers and fathers who were sometimes wearing the make-up themselves in tow at most concerts.
Kiss themselves did little to dissuade this new fan base, donning colorful costumes that reinforced a cartoonish image for these younger fans.
The fans were unaware of the dissension within the band. One very public indication of the heightened friction within the group was an infamous October 31, , interview on Tom Snyder 's late-night The Tomorrow Show.
During the episode, a visibly irritated Simmons and Stanley attempted, unsuccessfully, to contain the inebriated Frehley, whose frequent laughter and joking overshadowed the conversation between Snyder and the rest of the band.
Criss made references to his large gun collection, to the chagrin of Simmons. By the end of the Dynasty tour in December , tensions between Criss and the rest of the band were at an all-time high.
His drumming skills had noticeably eroded, and he even intentionally slowed down—or stopped playing altogether—during some concerts. The final show of the tour December 16, was the last time Criss performed with the group for almost 17 years, although he remained an official member for nearly six more months.
Anton Fig played all the drums on the next album, Unmasked , although he was not credited, while Criss appeared on the cover. Showcasing a slick, contemporary pop sound, Unmasked released May 20, had the dubious distinction of being the first Kiss album since Dressed to Kill to not achieve platinum sales.
Soon after the album's release, Criss' departure was officially announced. The band auditioned dozens of replacements for Criss in June One of the many who auditioned was Tico Torres who would later be with Bon Jovi.
They finally settled on a little-known drummer-guitarist-pianist-keyboardist-singer from Brooklyn named Paul Charles Caravello born July 12, who adopted the stage name Eric Carr.
His first make-up design was modeled on a hawk, though it was rejected as Stanley felt it looked more like a chicken.
Carr ultimately settled on a "Fox" persona. This was Kiss's only U. The band's tour of Australia and New Zealand, on the other hand, was one of the biggest in its history, as they played to sold-out crowds and received overwhelmingly positive press coverage.
For its next album, the band worked again with producer Ezrin, with whom Kiss had found success on Destroyer.
Early press reports indicated that the new album would be a return to the hard rock style that had originally brought the band success.
However, 's Music from "The Elder" was a concept album featuring medieval horns, strings, harps , and synthesizers. The album was presented as a soundtrack to a film that was never made, making it difficult to follow the storyline.
To make matters worse, having received negative feedback following its record company's preview of the album, Kiss altered the record's track sequence in most countries to emphasize potential singles "The Oath" and "A World Without Heroes", which all but guaranteed the inability of listeners to understand the already-muddled storyline.
Once released, fan reaction to The Elder was harsh; it failed to achieve Gold status and peaked at No. The band made only two appearances in support of the new album, both in January One was a performance on the ABC late-night variety program Fridays , while the second was a lip-synced performance that was broadcast via satellite during Italy's Sanremo Music Festival.
Absent from the satellite performance was Frehley, who had become increasingly frustrated with Kiss's new musical direction. Upset with the band's decision to record Music from "The Elder" , he did not actively participate in the album's creation, providing lead vocals for only one track, "Dark Light".
He did not appear at a special concert at Studio 54 in New York City, leaving Kiss to perform as a trio. He recorded his guitar parts at his home studio in Wilton, Connecticut , and mailed them to Ezrin.
Another source of frustration for Frehley was that with the departure of Criss, and with Carr not being an equal partner in the band, he was often outvoted 2-to-1 on group decisions.
In June , Frehley's departure from the band was negotiated, although he did not officially leave until December, and remained a business partner with Simmons and Stanley until Although Frehley had already decided to leave the band, he was pictured on the covers of 's Killers and Creatures of the Night , although he did not participate in the recording of either album.
Creatures of the Night October 13, was Kiss' heaviest album to date, and although it fared better than Music from "The Elder" , it peaked at only No.
In Frehley's absence, Kiss utilized a number of guitarists for the recording of the album, including Vinnie Vincent born Vincent John Cusano on August 6, Frehley's last appearance with the band until the reunion was in the music video for the single " I Love It Loud ", which was co-written by Vincent.
Frehley also appeared on the cover of the original Creatures of the Night album artwork. When the album was remixed and re-released in with a non-make-up cover and a slightly different song order, to reflect the band's roster change and abandonment of its make-up and costumes, Vincent was again absent from the album cover, as then-current lead guitarist, Bruce Kulick , appeared instead.
Vincent officially replaced Frehley as lead guitarist in December , as the band embarked on its 10th Anniversary Tour.
Vincent originally wanted to use his birth name in the band, but this was vetoed by Simmons on the grounds that it sounded "too ethnic". Specifically, according to Simmons, "it sounded like a fruit vendor".
Simmons went on to note that "fairly or unfairly, rock and roll is about image". Simmons later suggested the name change to "Vinnie Vincent".
Vincent started actively pushing to join Kiss as a full member. Despite the misgivings that both Simmons and Stanley harbored about his personality, Vincent was taken into the band.
Stanley designed a character, "The Wiz"   also known as "The Egyptian Warrior",  and make-up centered around an Egyptian ankh , for Vincent.
A persona as "The Ankh Warrior" or similar is not mentioned in the book at all. Vincent's personality did not mesh well with either Stanley or Simmons, and he was dismissed from Kiss at the end of the Creatures tour.
He was quickly reinstated before recording started for Lick It Up because Simmons and Stanley could not find a new lead guitarist on such short notice.
Vincent appeared on the cover of Lick It Up and was credited as the lead guitarist. Personality issues arose once again, and Vincent was fired following the Lick It Up tour, due in part to excessive guitar soloing at a concert in Quebec.
He was replaced by Mark St. John birth name Mark Norton. Vincent's work on Creatures of the Night was not officially recognized until the album was remastered in Before long, Vincent fell out with Simmons and Stanley for a third time, and they again severed their musical ties.
Persistent rumors circulated for years among Kiss fans regarding the true reason for Vincent's dismissals from Kiss, with at least one band member refusing to comment except to say that legally it was not up for discussion.
Simmons stated in an interview several years later that Vincent's firing was for "unethical behavior", but he did not elaborate:.
I named Vincent Cusano, 'Vinnie Vincent'. That's the only gift he's allowed. It's interesting that Vinnie hasn't changed his name back to Vinnie Cusano.
Vinnie, for the record, was fired for unethical behavior, not because of lack of talent. The guy is very talented. He was unethical. He was fired.
Sensing it was time for a change, Kiss made the decision to abandon its trademark make-up and costumes. The band officially appeared in public without make-up for the first time since its very early days on a September 18, , appearance on MTV, which coincided with the release of Lick It Up.
Lick It Up became Kiss' first Gold record in three years, but the tour was even more sparsely attended than the previous one.
Vincent did not get along with Simmons and Stanley, and he left the band at the conclusion of the tour in March Vincent's replacement was Mark St.
John , a session player and guitar tutor. With St. John, Kiss released the album Animalize on September 13, Animalize followed the success of Lick It Up , and due in part to consistent MTV play for the " Heaven's on Fire " video, Animalize was the band's best-selling record in America during the decade, with over two million albums sold.
With the success of the album and subsequent tour, Kiss had recaptured some of its earlier glory though not to the level of its s heyday.
John, however, came down with reactive arthritis during tour rehearsals, and only performed at a handful of shows before being dismissed from the band in December The band hired Bruce Kulick to replace St.
Kulick had previously filled in for St. John during the first two months of the Animalize tour. Kulick was Kiss' fourth lead guitarist in less than three years, but he stayed with the band for 12 years.
One of the first concerts Kulick played as an official member of the band was at Detroit, Michigan's Cobo Hall. This was later released as the band's first home video, Animalize Live Uncensored.
Crazy Nights , in particular, was one of Kiss' most successful albums overseas. The single " Crazy Crazy Nights " reached No. Kiss ended the decade with the October release Hot in the Shade.
Although the album failed to achieve platinum status, it spawned the hit ballad " Forever ", co-written by Michael Bolton.
Peaking at No. During this time, Kiss struggled with its identity and fan base. Simmons, arguably the driving force in Kiss during the s, became less involved with the group in the s as he pursued outside interests, most notably a film career.
Stanley took a more prominent role as a result. In February , the band decided to once again enlist Ezrin to produce its next album.
Before recording could begin in earnest, however, tragedy struck. In March , it was discovered that Carr had a tumor on his heart. It was successfully removed the following month, but more tumors were soon discovered in his lungs.
Carr received chemotherapy and was pronounced cancer-free in July. However, in September he suffered the first of two cerebral hemorrhages.
He died on November 24, , at the age of Singer had played with Paul Stanley previously, as part of Stanley's backing band during a solo tour.
Kiss released Revenge on May 19, It featured a leaner, harder-edged sound, as indicated by the first single, " Unholy ". In a surprise move, Kiss enlisted Vincent to help with songwriting duties.
The album debuted in the Top 10 and went Gold. Kiss embarked on a brief club tour of the U. Four days later, Kiss were inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk.
During this period, Kiss nostalgia started to pick up steam. June saw the release of Kiss My Ass: Classic Kiss Regrooved , a compilation album featuring popular artists of the era putting their own spin on Kiss songs.
In , the group released the book Kisstory , a page, 9 pounds 4. That same year, the band embarked on a unique and well-received Worldwide Kiss Convention Tour.
The conventions were all-day events, featuring displays of vintage Kiss stage outfits, instruments and memorabilia; performances by Kiss cover bands; and dealers selling Kiss merchandise from every stage of the band's career.
Kiss appeared live at the conventions, conducted question and answer sessions, signed autographs, and performed a two-hour acoustic set composed mostly of spontaneous fan requests.
On the first U. It was the first time Criss had performed publicly with the band in nearly 16 years. The band contacted Criss and Frehley and invited them to participate in the event.
In the weeks following the Unplugged concert, however, the band with Kulick and Singer , returned to the studio for the first time in three years to record a follow-up to Revenge.
Carnival of Souls: The Final Sessions was completed in February , but its release was delayed for almost two years.
Bootleg copies of the album circulated widely among fans. These efforts culminated with a public event as dramatic as any the band had staged since its unmasking on MTV.
With the following statements, Tupac Shakur introduced the original Kiss lineup, in full makeup and Love Gun -era stage outfits, to a rousing ovation at the 38th Annual Grammy Awards : .
You know how the Grammys used to be, all straight-looking folks with suits. Everybody looking tired. No surprises. We tired of that. We need something different, something new, we need to shock the people On April 20, nearly 40, tickets for the tour's first show sold out in 47 minutes.
The first public concert featuring the newly reunited Kiss was an hour-long warm-up show on June 15 for the annual KROQ Weenie Roast in Irvine, California , during which the band nearly ignited the stage of the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater.
There were many many nights when I was looking around the stage and going "This is magic. What was important about these shows is we had a much bigger task than people understood.
Our biggest competition was our history. We didn't have to be as good as we used to be. We had to be as good as people thought we were.
The show wasn't to be a replica of what we've done, it was to be what people imagined we had done. We had to be totally committed. In terms of the stage show for the reunion tour, what we wanted to do was look at the '77 show in a sense as a pinnacle.
That is what we chose to build on but not copy. There are also elements from other shows too in the sense that there's bombs and the flying rig and the breaking of the guitars.
At that time, it was the ultimate Kiss show in the sense that we looked at the show, which we thought was our best and said, "Top this. In September , the reunited group issued Psycho Circus.
Although it was the first album with the original lineup since 's Dynasty , the contributions of Frehley and Criss were minimal.
While the images of Frehley and Criss are featured prominently on the album, most of the lead guitar work was later revealed to have been performed by future band member Tommy Thayer.
Former member Kulick made an appearance on the intro of the song "Within". Most drum duties were handled by session musician Kevin Valentine.
Despite the controversy, the album achieved a No. It proved to be another success, and was historic for being the first to ever incorporate 3D visuals into a stage show.
The film takes place in , and focuses on four teenagers willing to do anything to score tickets for a sold-out Kiss show in Detroit.
The next month, the group worked in collaboration with World Championship Wrestling to produce a Kiss-themed wrestler known as The Demon , whose face was painted to resemble Simmons' makeup.
Nel esce la loro prima raccolta, intitolata Double Platinum. Nello stesso anno, i quattro decidono di pubblicare simultaneamente un disco solista per ogni membro della band.
Gli album riscuotono un successo inferiore rispetto a quello dei due precedenti. Nonostante il gruppo abbia raggiunto il successo mondiale, proprio nel incomincia il declino della formazione originale.
Celebre la domanda "tu dovresti essere lo Spaceman, giusto? Per quell'occasione i Kiss si esibirono in collegamento via satellite da New York assieme ad altri personaggi della musica come Bee Gees , Village People e Van Halen .
Inoltre pare fosse stata rifiutata una proposta di Eddie van Halen   , allora in tensione con David Lee Roth. I due album successivi all'abbandono di Frehley si intitolano Killers una raccolta di brani non pubblicata negli Stati Uniti con 4 tracce inedite , e Creatures of the Night.
Quest'ultimo album che mostra in copertina ancora Ace Frehley venne pubblicato nell'ottobre del Nel settembre del i Kiss fecero la loro prima apparizione su MTV senza il trucco e i costumi che li caratterizzavano fino ad allora, in concomitanza con la pubblicazione del loro nuovo album intitolato Lick It Up , premiato con il disco di platino.
Con questo disco i Kiss intraprendono un nuovo percorso musicale, incorporando elementi pop metal genere molto in voga negli anni ottanta e di cui i Kiss furono alcuni dei principali precursori .
Tuttavia, alla fine del tour seguente all'album, Vinnie Vincent se ne va per forti incrinature con Simmons e Stanley.
Mark St. Durante le prove dell' Animalize world tour, tuttavia, Mark St. John abbandona il gruppo a causa di problemi di salute, avendo contratto la Sindrome di Reiter  , ed il suo posto venne preso da Bruce Kulick , fratello di Bob , che sarebbe dovuto entrare come chitarrista nel gruppo nel prima che arrivasse Frehley.
Nonostante i continui cambiamenti della formazione, i Kiss durante questo periodo ritrovano, almeno negli Stati Uniti , il successo, anche se inferiore a quello degli anni settanta.
Con la nuova formazione, i Kiss incidono altri tre album premiati come dischi di platino. Nel esce Hot in the Shade , album dalla struttura musicale elaborata, il cui singolo Forever scritto da Stanley in compagnia di Michael Bolton raggiunge il numero otto della classifica  , migliore posizione dal ed ultimo singolo, finora, dei Kiss nella Top 10 .
Nel video di Rise To It , tratta dall'album, compaiono alla fine del brano per una decina di secondi, in un ipotetico flashback del '75, Stanley e Simmons col make-up.
Per il loro primo album degli anni novanta i Kiss decidono di assumere di nuovo Bob Ezrin come produttore e si apprestano nella lavorazione di un nuovo disco, Revenge.
Tuttavia, a due mesi dalla guarigione, a settembre, il batterista viene ricoverato per due emorragie cerebrali .
Eric Carr muore il 24 novembre, lasciando un vuoto sia all'interno del gruppo che tra i fans. Passato lo shock della sua scomparsa, i Kiss sostituiscono Carr con Eric Singer batterista con un passato di militanza in altri gruppi heavy metal come i Black Sabbath e Badlands.
Nel i Kiss organizzano il Worldwide Kiss Convention Tour, durante il quale si esibiscono cover bands e in cui vengono allestite delle mostre in cui vengono esposti diversi oggetti e strumentazioni.
Durante la prima data del tour 17 giugno , la band tiene un'esibizione dal vivo nella quale compare come batterista Peter Criss , che aveva lasciato il gruppo nel Il 28 febbraio del i Kiss si ripresentano con la loro formazione originale in occasione della trentottesima edizione dei Grammy Awards .
Everybody looking tired. No surprises. We tired of that. We need something different Tutti sembrano stanchi. Nessuna sorpresa.
Abbiamo bisogno di qualcosa di diverso In occasione della riunione i Kiss ritornano anche all'uso del trucco facciale e dei travestimenti, abbandonati nel Il 16 aprile dello stesso anno, in una conferenza stampa trasmessa in simultanea in 58 Paesi  , il gruppo annuncia un tour con la formazione originale.
Nel settembre del viene pubblicato Psycho Circus , primo e unico album in studio registrato con la formazione originale dopo il La prima data viene trasmessa in simultanea dalle radio statunitensi e diviene il primo concerto della storia in cui sul palco vengono utilizzati effetti visivi in tre dimensioni .
Il gruppo avrebbe dovuto anche suonare il brano God of Thunder live durante la prima apparizione del personaggio, ed esibirsi il 31 dicembre dello stesso anno durante lo show New Devil's Eve.
Tuttavia il progetto fallisce un mese dopo a causa di problemi finanziari da parte del presidente della WCW Eric Bischoff.
