(2021) - 4 min
On January 30th, 1973 KISS stepped on stage at the Popcorn Club in Queens, New York to perform their very first live show. After making a cold call to the venue, Gene Simmons landed the gig and they were paid a whopping $50. While KISS now plays to sold out stadiums, there were only about ten people in the audience for that very first show.
