|One of the most collectible items
are tourbooks, which are sold at concerts.
Tourbooks were not available at all Kiss concerts. The first tourbook was sold in early 1976. But there were periods where there was no tourbook available. Sometimes at the beginning of a tour the tourbook wasn't printed yet.
On some tours the tourbook was hardly available due to bad distribution (like on the Revenge tour). On some tours there were just some tourbooks available at the merchandise booth before the concert. But since they had a low stock brought into the venue, which usually did not get restocked, people only could buy the tourbook before the concert. After the concert it was quite often sold out.
The tourbook usually included recent pictures from the current tour and sometimes the pictures for the tourbook were taken at the first couple of shows and the tourbooks were not available until weeks into the tour. Sometimes pictures from the rehearsals were used for the tourbook.
Quite often the tourbook changed midst of a tour. Sometimes photos were changed, information added or updated or pages were added.
Listed here are all the tourbooks that exist in all variations, including photos of inside the tourbooks, values and all interesting details to each edition.
