Produced by Paul Weaver. Directed by Keefe. Recorded during the Animalize Tour at Detroit's Cobo Hall (KISS' second home!) on December 8, 1984 (Bruce's first day as a full member of the band), it was broadcast on television by MTV concerts. The video was heavily edited with overdubs for release, so it is useful to obtain an unofficial version of the MTV broadcast, albeit incomplete, for comparrison. Japanese Laserdisc has 19 tracks listed which include solos & intro rather than any additional songs. Original list prices was $24.95.

Chart Peak (USA): #5 (7/20/85) with 55 weeks on charts. Other countries:
