Kiss played Providence Civic Center on this night in 1977. What album were they out on the road promoting?

Answer: Rock and Roll Over

Here’s the rest of today’s Rock N’ Roll Diary!

  • Happy Birthday: Singer/songwriter Graham Nash of the Hollies, and of course, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
  • 1973: At an Emerson, Lake & Palmer concert in San Francisco, Keith Emerson was burned and injured his hand when a keyboard specially rigged to shoot fireworks exploded prematurely.
  • 1978: Van Halen signed with Warner Brothers Records.
  • 1987: Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band: Live 1975-1985 went gold and platinum on the same day. The box set entered the charts at #1.
  • 1994: Rock promoter Sid Bernstein announced plans for a 25th anniversary Woodstock festival. The eventual concert lost millions of dollars.
  • 2001: The city of Detroit, which was going to give Ted Nugent the keys to the city, decided not to because of Ted’s controversial views on race and immigration.
  • From the WZLX Ticket Stash… KISS rocked the Providence Civic Center in 1977 all night, and partied every day.
