KISS and Rush at The Richmond Arena - 1975

On April 27th, 1975 (37 years ago today), KISS played the Richmond Arena with openers Rush, Brian Auger and Oblivion Express & M-S Funk. KISS was supporting Dressed To Kill, Rush was supporting Fly By Night. Tickets were 5 bucks. Anyone at this show? Although I was fortunate enough to see KISS in the 70s, it wasn't until 4 years later.


  1. A few of us from Oregon Hill went to this concert. I remember it very well. Ran into some girls from southside that went to JFK high school with me.

  2. I was at the show. I was standing at the side of the building when it was over. A limo rode past, with a car in hot pursuit. The car stopped and asked if I wanted to come along and I did. We ended up at the Holiday Inn on Franklin and met Gene and Paul.

  3. I was there also. I remember how incredibly loud it was and how bad the acoustics were at the Arena. I couldn't remember the date but saw them twice in Richmond during their early years.
