Notes:

- The three other shows were sold-out in advance of the first show, and that day tickets were still available for the final U.K. show. It's not known whether it sold-out, though this date was an extra date added after the first three had gone on sale.
- From a local mainstream review: "KISS had everything; every single effect in the book. They had a perfect lighting system; dry ice; smoke bombs; a fire-eater; a huge lighted insignia; sirens; confetti that simulated a blizzard; guitars; drums; EVERYTHING. But what KISS hadn't got at their London Hammersmith Odeon gig on Sunday night was a feeling for the music. They depended on their bland pyrotechnics to win over this English audience and, admittedly, they seemed to do that. But it was all so nauseatingly contrived that, to me anyway, the showmanship meant nothing" (Melody Maker).
- The generally good AUD recording from this show became the famed "KISS Blitz London" bootleg LP. Most copies of this recording exclude the final two songs.
