KISS: Animalize Live Uncensored 1984

KISS: "Animalize Live Uncensored" recorded at Cobo Hall on December 8, 1984 during KISS' Animalize Tour. It was originally aired by MTV. The tour featured arguably the most varied setlist KISShas ever played, featuring songs from seven of the band's studio releases up to that point. Three songs from "Animalize" were played, and many of the band's more popular songs were performed. The show was filmed on the same day temporary guitarist Bruce Kulick was named an official member, replacing Mark St. John. As suggested by its title, Animalize Live Uncensored features plenty of filthy on-stage banter from Paul Stanley.
