I wonder if Kiss was the opening band or if Rory was opening for Kiss, back in '74, I'd expect Rory to be the headliner, but in the US, Kiss was just starting?

I don't know about this one in particular, but sometimes Rory and another headliner type of band would alternate

rory was probably headliner, he was at his peak popularity wise back in '74 i would say and kiss were only the beginners
I watched as fear took the old men's gaze
Hopes of the young in troubled graves
'I see no day' I heard him say
So grey is the face of every mortal

Hi Brian and Kruno,

I have read and heard folk tell me, that when Rory played first at a Kiss headlining gig. Kiss came on after Rory, started playing and the crowd wanted them off stage...Chanting RORY RORY RORY!

Yes, with absolute 100% certainty, Rory was the headliner. I saw him on that tour, when he was at the Long Beach Auditorium, and Kiss opened for him, and they got booed off the stage. They were the newbies, none of us had ever heard of them, and we couldn't wait for them to move on.
