Notes:

- Queensr├┐che cancelled (due to the flu) and were replaced by a local act.
- From a local review: "If it wasn't for KISS, guitarist/singer Paul Stanley and his filthy mouth would probably be plying a trade in C-circuit strip houses across the continent, telling lewd jokes to the accompaniment of a drum roll, filling the space between class acts... Bereft of their threatening black and white makeup, the KISS Army of devotees and the tongue-in-cheek humor stemmed from their comic-book personas, the only unique entertainment within a KISS show now is bassist Gene Simmons obscenely flexing his tongue. Hundreds of thousands of musicians can sing and prance and pose as interestingly as Stanley and Simmons -- and they do it without coming to a lengthy halt between songs. Thousands more can grind out the kind of turgid guitar solos that newest band member Mark St. John invents. Many Canadian garage bands cart around paraphernalia that brings more excitement to the stage than KISS's dated smoke machine, exploding torch and dollying drum riser" (Edmonton Journal, 3/3/85).
