Sammy Hagar recalled a disastrous opening show for Kiss in Drew Fortune’s new book, No Encore!
Hagar had been scheduled for 10 appearances with the band, but his first opening show ended up also being his last.
“I had my second solo record out. Kiss was starting a  tour, and it was their first headlining show in New York, their hometown,” Hagar said. “They sold out Madison Square Garden, and they asked me at the last minute to be the opening act for the 10-show, East Coast run. … Nobody knew who I was, or even that I was on the bill, because I was added last minute. I didn’t even have any fans yet, anyway.”
