Today In KISStory - 1976

Ace Frehley gets shocked at the Lakeland Civic Center in Florida.

Today In KISStory - December 12, 1976: KISS performed a concert at the Lakeland Civic Center in Lakeland, Florida. During the opening number, Ace Frehley touched a metal staircase railing which was ungrounded. Ace was knocked to the ground and the concert was delayed for 30 minutes. The show was eventually completed and he claimed to have lost feeling in his hand for the remainder of the show.

The song "Shock Me" was inspired by this event.
