Unmasked: (May 20, 1980)

KISSThe band filmed a promotional video for "Shandi," with Peter Criss. It was the last time Criss appeared with KISS in any capacity until he performed with them at a KISS Convention in June 1995.

A lip-synched German television performance of "Talk to Me" and "She's So European" featured the debut of Eric Carr. The band would play a concert at the now defunct Palladium Theatre in New York to officially introduce Carr as Criss' permanent replacement in the band.
