The European shows were being promoted as the usual group of four, with their faces in a close-up photo of the cover of their album from last year "Dynasty." Many of the advertisement posters were printed in full color on a pattern twice as big, with a photo of KISS and the heading” The American supergroup Kiss” in bold. The outlets in Germany, Sweden and England were flooded by hordes of fans queued three deep for tickets. But there was one big problem with this promotional scheme. KISS were now without original drummer Peter Criss who was on the posters promoting the tour.
Now with Eric Carr on drums the tour would begin in Rome in late August, not the most appropriate time of year to start a European tour since the summer holidays leave empty half the major cities. But there were no alternatives; KISS had to play in Europe this year and a tour of Australia was already prepared for late autumn.
Kiss had never played in Italy, and the show in the old Vigorelli Velodrome stadium in Milan almost became a disaster. When KISS started playing their hit ”I Was Made For Lovin‘ You”, also a hit in Italy and most of Europe, the crowd went crazy. About an hour into the show a group of "leftist militants" took the stage after outwitting security people and jumped onstage shouting ”Kiss fascists! Kiss fascists! ”Kiss stopped short concert . The music stopped in front of an audience of 30,000 people and KISS left the stage. After about half an hour the band returned to the stage to finish the show. -Original
