KISS: Animalize Live Uncensored was recorded at Cobo Hall on December 8, 1984 during Kiss' Animalize Tour.
It was originally aired on MTV. The tour featured arguably the most varied setlist Kiss has ever played, featuring songs from seven of the band's studio releases up to that point. Three songs from Animalize were played, and many of the band's more popular songs were performed. The show was filmed on the same day temporary guitarist Bruce Kulick was named an official member, replacing Mark St. John.
