KISS play first show without make-up 33 years ago in Lisbon, Portugal

kiss-photoHistory was made on October 11, 1983 when KISS played their first concert without any make-up at Cascais Hall in Lisbon, Portugal.

Wikipedia states the following about KISS‘ unmasking (with slight edits): “Sensing it was time for a change, Kiss made the decision to abandon their trademark makeup and costumes. The band officially appeared in public without makeup for the first time on a September 18, 1983 appearance on MTV, which coincided with the release of the band’s new album, Lick It Up. The tour showing off the new album and the unmasked band members began in Lisbon, Portugal, on October 11, 1983, at Pavilhão Dramático de Cascais, their first concert without makeup since early 1973. 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 1984.”
