– Though it was kinda obvious at the time this show marked the end of the ”Farewell Tour,” and Peter Criss’ reunion with KISS.
– He trashed his drum kit at the end of the show, and had been incorporating a tear-drop into his make-up for quite a while… The ”Cat” wasn’t happy…
– It wasn’t publicly known at the time, for the ”tear-drop” was yet to appear, but there were problems in ”Cat-land.”
– Peter Criss effectively left the band following the final ”Farewell” show in Charleston, SC in October 2000. His ”Reunion” contract had essentially expired and he and KISS were unable to come to terms for him continuing with the band for the international leg of the ”Farewell” in Japan and Australia. He was replaced by Eric Singer.
