Plans for Cadillac High ~ a feature film based on KISS 1975 visit to Cadillac, Michigan are still alive and expected to bring work to the state that helped the band get famous, according to Gene Simmons .

The Michigan Film Office offered in 2012 film producer Philip Steuer a conditional $8.2 million incentive to shoot Cadillac High in Cadillac, Detroit and Pontiac.

KISS is currently on tour with Def Leppard and will make an August 23rd stop at DTE Energy Music Theatre .

The band will then do a short stint in Las Vegas; then a KISS cruise; then fly to Mexico City to play a stadium down there; plans for a South American stadium tour, and just go around the world twice for two years.

Cadillac High is expected to emphasize the impact KISS made on the Cadillac High School Vikings varsity football team and the town as a whole.

In 1974, the Vikings, playing KISS records in the locker room before and after games, won seven straight games and wound up conference co-champs.

Word spread to KISS of the teams success, and the bands members decided to visit Cadillac the next year for a raucous Homecoming weekend.
