Crazy Nights is the 14th studio album by American band Kiss. The album was recorded in June 1987 and officially released on September 18th, 1987 by Mercury and Vertigo in Europe. The album featured keyboards which was another departure in their music style changing from their Lick It Up/Animalize/Asylum heavy metal sound into the pop-metal sound. The album peaked at #18 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, making Crazy Nights the highest-charting Kiss album of the 1980s in the United States. The album was certified Platinum on November 18, 1987 in Canada and few months later in the USA, on February 18, 1988. It was re-released in 1998 as part of the Kiss Remasters series and to date is the last Kiss album to have been remastered.
"Crazy Crazy Nights" and "Reason to Live" were played regularly on live shows until Eric Carr's death in 1991 (although Crazy Nights returned to KISS' set on the Sonic Boom Over Europe Tour). Otherwise, the album has not been performed live ever since.
