Notes:

- Final show with Queensryche as opening act.
- From a local review: "The makeup may be gone, but the heavy-metal cartoon charisma of KISS lives... Much like Twisted Sister during its recent trip through Calgary, KISS used every trick in the book of ritualistic heavy-metal clich├ęs to get the crowd into a hedonistic, us-against-them party mentality... Stanley (who without his makeup bears a remarkable resemblance to Cher) made sure the crowd knew it was them against the world... It all stirred the patriotic heavy-metal heart and the crowd roared its approval again and again. It didn't matter that the group's solos were less than inventive and the message of the songs nauseatingly narrow-minded, nor that offstage these reasonably wealthy men are nothing like their concert personae. For the 6,000 fans, it was a chance to see their heroes without the comic-book gimmicks, to see them trying to keep up with the 1980s by putting the accent on heavy metal rather than rock 'n' roll. KISS, once again, showed itself to be a master of crowd manipulation" (Calgary Herald, 3/4/85).
- A partial AUD recording circulates from this show.
