Notes:

- According to Lydia Criss (in "Sealed With A KISS"), Peter was busted for possessing valium and Darvon (a narcotic pain reliever) tablets, and was prevented from importing them into Canada. He wasn't arrested or charged with any crime.
- This show started nearly 3 hours late. Promotion for this concert included a store display that may have featured the first use of the phrase "Merry KISS-mas."
- From a local review: "KISS is a tight well rehearsed band with some excellent musical ideas. Unfortunately, the ability to hear any of this is lost in the incredible amount of distortion which is created by KISS' pain-inducing volume level. I am not at all against loud music but I do not appreciate pain under any circumstances. They can only be appreciated by hearing them on a recording. KISS has something to offer musically but the glitter and whiteface is on its way out and if the group is to remain alive, it must change and face the future that one of its members is supposed to represent" (London Free Press, 12/23/74).
- 6:28 of silent Super 8mm footage surfaced in 2009 which included Joe performing and the band meeting KISS backstage.
