THE RETURN OF KISS TOURBOOKS
The first and rarest of all tour books, known as 'The Return of KISS' Tour book. The internal contents are identical to the first DYNASTY one (see below). The front and back covers are different. The inside cover lists all the proposed tour dates from 1979. This includes many dates that were cancelled or simply never put on sale due to the demand not being high enough. The tour book is rumoured to have been rejected by KISS for two reasons: the cover photo and bad retouching made a mess of Gene's tongue and the others looked odd. Also, the fact that many of the dates were cancelled looked bad forcing the change to...
DYNASTY version 1 - Largely considered to be the first version of the DYNASTY tour book. This book consisted of 12 pages. The three versions have a few distinct differences. This book has the Paul Stanley Ibanez advert and the first page was an advertisement for the Bally KISS Pinball Machine
DYNASTY version 2 - This second version was expanded to 16 pages. New live photos were added to the book. These pages differ from the third version (below) as there is a silver border in the negative spaces on the live pages.
DYNASTY version 3 - More live photos have been to the band members' bio pages/collages. While the pagination remained at 16 pages, a Gene Simmons Sunn Amp ad replaced the Paul Stanley Ibanez one.
