Seventeen long years passed between the last show featuring all four original members of Kiss in 1979 and the first full concert of their 1996-97 reunion tour. Luckily, their trademark facepaint is really good at covering up the passage of time.

in front of a sold-out crowd of screaming maniacs -- trust us, we were there -- at Detroit's Tiger Stadium, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley welcomed Ace Frehley and Peter Criss back to the fold for a souped-up version of their already explosive stage show. The band has kept the makeup on ever since, although Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer currently perform in the Space Ace and Catman roles.
