Additional notes:

1. These three songs were part of the showcase set performed by Simmons, Stanley, and Criss for Epic A&R man Don Ellis at the loft in November 1972. Since the band was still nominally Wicked Lester, and not yet KISS, they're given their first official "KISS" performance dates at KISS' first show...
2. As the band transitioned into being KISS several Wicked Lester songs survived. None of these songs would last through 1973...
3. These songs had all been performed live by Wicked Lester in 1971. "Let Me Know" was then titled "Sunday Driver" and "Goin' Blind" was "Little Lady." "Stanley The Parrot" was also performed, but since it is so different to the later "Strutter" it is not included here.
4. "Acrobat" versus "Love Theme From KISS." "Acrobat" was performed in its entirity in the clubs, while the shortened component part "Love Theme From KISS," included on the debut album, was performed at several shows in 1974. As a result of this technicality, "Love Theme From KISS" is noted as first being performed in 1973 as part of "Acrobat."
5. "Goin' Blind." On the KISStoric document that lists the two sets from the first show "Little Lady" is not listed as part of either set sequence. Instead, it is listed off to the side with the introduction notes.
6. The band did very partially attempt "All The Way" at the KISS Konvention acoustic set in Perth, Australia on Feb. 3, 1995. The 2004 date marks the song's first full electric performance.
7. Like "All The Way," KISS first attempted "Comin' Home" acoustically at the KISS Konvention in Melbourne, Australia on Feb. 7, 1995. The song wasn't performed in its entirity until the US Konvention tour, and it has never been performed in an electric set (regardless of the debate about KISS' acoustic sets really being electric in the first place).
8. "Two Timer" was briefly attempted at the KISS Konvention in Melbourne, Australia on Feb. 7, 1995.
9. "Anything For My Baby" was briefly attempted at the KISS Konvention in San Francisco, CA on June 18, 1995.
10. Both "Shout It Out Loud" and "Flaming Youth" were first performed while the band were still on their "Alive!" tour.
11. "Baby Driver" wasn't even attempted by KISS during the Konvention tour, though Criss would perform the song during the 1990s.
12. "Mr. Speed" was partially attempted during the KISS Konvention in Adelaide, Australia on Feb. 5, 1995 and some other shows, and was first near fully performed in Phoenix, AZ.
13. "Hard Luck Woman" didn't last long in the set at the start of the "Rock And Roll Over" tour in 1976. The band tried an electric version of the song, but it didn't work. The song became a central part of the acoustic Konvention tour in 1995.
14. Even though it was on "Alive II," "Tommorrow And Tonight" was never performed live by KISS, at least in front of a paying audience, since it could have been tried out at sound-check. Recorded in the studio and over-dubbed with audience on the same day (Sharp, Ken - BtM) as "Larger Than Life."
15. "Got Love For Sale" had a single attempt on June 22, 1995 in Salt Lake City, UT. "Almost Human" was briefly attempted (twice) at the KISS Konvention in San Francisco, CA on June 18, and at some other shows.
16. "Plaster Caster" became a central part of the acoustic Konvention tour in 1995.
17. "Then She Kissed Me" was briefly attempted at the KISS Konvention in Las Vegas, NV on June 24, 1995 and at other shows.
18. All of the "Alive II" studio tracks were at least partially attempted on numerous occasions during the Konvention tour in 1995. None really made it to completion.
19. Ace made "Rocket Ride" a central part of many of his sets, and this song is perhaps one of the biggest loses to KISS' live sets 1977-80 and 1996-2001.
20. "Sure Know Something" became a mainstay during the acoustic Konvention tour in 1995.
21. Both "Magic Touch" and "Charisma" were regularly attempted, unsuccessfully, during the acoustic Konvention tour in 1995.
22. KISS tried "Torpedo Girl" out at the Brisbane Konvention on Feb. 10, 1995 and some other dates.
23. "Just A Boy," "Under The Rose," and "Mr. Blackwell" were attempted at various Konvention dates, not successfully.
24. Attempted at various Konvention dates, not successfully.
25. "Keep Me Comin'" only survived for two performances.
26. "Rock And Roll Hell" only survived for three performances. It was attempted, unsuccessfully, during the Konvention tour.
27. Was attempted at the June 22, 1995 Salt Lake City, UT date and several other Konvention shows.
28. "Burn Bitch Burn" was only performed once, then dropped. It was attempted at various Konvention dates, not successfully.
29. "Get All You Can Take" was only performed once, then dropped.
30. "Any Way You Slice It" was only performed once, then dropped.
31. Performed during the Konvention tour, once famously with a little girl on lead vocals in a kind of sick and perverted way.
32. "Betrayed" was only performed twice, then dropped.
33. "Hide Your Heart" had been performed live by Paul Stanley on his 1989 solo tour prior to the songs release on "Hot In The Shade."
34. "Little Caesar" was only performed once, then dropped.
35. "Spit" was regularly performed during the 1995 Konvention tour.
36. "Every Time I Look At You" was regularly performed during the 1995 Konvention tour and was a center piece of the MTV Unplugged performance.
37. This song gets included, even though it was originally only released on the Ramones Tribute album, due to its later inclusion on the Single Disc Edition of "Alive IV - The Symphony."
38. Technically, this song was performed live for the first time on 9/24 at a mini show for the filming of Kiss' "Jimmy Kimmel" TV show appearance and the "Modern Day Delilah" video, but for a paying audience the first performance date is 9/25.
39. Since "I'm An Animal" contains parts of "Feel Like Heaven," recorded by Peter Criss for his 1982 solo album, some parts of the song had been previously performed by Peter (as a member of Balls of Fire) in August 1986.
40. Similar to note 38, this song was performed at several Sound checks prior to its official addition to the live set.
41. Both "Two Timer" and "Getaway" were performed electrically by KISS in concert during their inaugural "Kiss Kruise." "Getaway" had been performed occasionally as part of Ace Frehley's solo set.
42. "Anything For My Baby," "Two Timer," "Just A Boy," "I," and "Mr. Blackwell" were partially attempted during the acoustic "sail away" show on the 2011 "Kiss Kruise," but not completed.
43. "Comin' Home" was first performed electrically in concert on October 15, 2011.
44. It's unlikely that the band would ever perform this tribute album track.
45. Some might argue the true first performance date was the following show in Osaka on February 25, due to an over-reliance on backing tracks during the first attempt (due to the complexity of the song). However, the ultimate perfomance of this Japan-only song was its final performance in Tokyo in March 3, when the band were joined by the girls from MCZ on stage. Doubtful it'll ever be mentioned again!
