Take The KISStory Tour

In 1975, KISS was an outrageous band from New York City on the cusp of superstardom when they took Cadillac by storm. How this event came together is one of the most unlikely stories in Rock ‘n Roll history!

Experience the Cadillac KISStory Tour, a 2.5 mile walking tour of the Cadillac KISStorical sites that have become famous since the KISS visit to Cadillac. There are four KISStorical plaques around Cadillac. Music fans can now walk from plaque to plaque, retracing the same steps the band took from way back in 1975.

Each all-weather marker features classic photos and an explanation of why the spot is significant in the story. For a more interactive account, head to, where you can watch Jim Neff, the 1975 assistant football coach, telling about some of the highlights that go along with each stop.
