Throwback Concert: Kiss at New Haven Coliseum 1985

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1985!

That year PLR presented Kiss at New Haven Coliseum. Kiss hit the road in ’85 to support their thirteenth studio album “Asylum,” which featured the hit single Tears Are Falling. It was also the first album and tour to feature guitarist Bruce Kulick as an official band member. Joining Kiss at the Coliseum was special guest Black ‘N Blue.

Today we look back when Kiss rocked New Haven in 1985…
