New Year’s Eve, December 31, 1973 – Academy of Music
In early 1973 Kiss began playing small clubs around New York, but all the members had their minds set on superstardom. They aggressively publicized the band, sending releases to many important record industry executives. Bill Aucoin, who was working as producer of a television music series, went to see the band play and was instantly impressed. Within a few weeks he had made a deal with Casablanca records to handle Kiss's records and publicity. Shortly after their signing with Casablanca, the group produced the album Kiss. Choreographer Sean Delaney was brought in to perfect the timing and effects of Kiss's already dramatic stage appearance. The band's first major show was on New Year's Eve, 1973, as an opening act. Kiss stole the show that evening, winning over the crowd with its performance.
