I'm not sure on how early I'll get there, but I will swing by the Brewhouse wearing a Destroyer shirt, a yellow Corvette hat and a big grin.

I wonder how many music industry types will show up? It seems everyone in the industry now resides in Nashville. That plus the Preds and Stars play there the next night to kick off the playoffs - I bet a bunch of the guys go to the show. Maybe there will be a Carrie Underwear, I mean Underwood sighting.

I don't know. You would think he might still stay around the team a bit and since they likely still live in town, there's a good chance at least he will show up. As a Blackhawk fan I pretty much loathe the Preds. It started with the "Keep the Red Out" campaign of trying to stop Hawk fans from attending games in Nashville. I think their policy is if you live in Illinois they force you to buy tickets to another Preds game not against the Hawks or something like that. They've also become better than the Hawks the last few years which is tough to swallow, but hey, they raise Western Conference banners while the Hawks raised three Cup banners the last nine years! :P

I still think it's possible a who's who in the music industry could show up tomorrow night along with some of the hockey players looking for something to do, although there's certainly a lot to do in Nashville.

Thanks for the report Nibs. It looks like we're gonna have ourselves a rock n roll party to(morrow)nite!

I couldn't be more pumped about it.

42 years and 3 months to the day of seeing them the first time. No way I'd miss this.

Having seen them 7-8 times since the Farewell tour... My reaction this morning is that was the best Kiss show I've seen in terms of stage and "show".

the lost cities tour was sold out, but my wife and I noticed empty seats in sec 104 where I was for the lost cities tour. I didn't see any blue seats anywhere when the house lights went on for this. I'm sure there were some unsold seats, but we didn't see

Ahh. I'm sure also there are people that just couldn't make the show. I believe every show I have ever attended that was "sold out" had empty seats for one reason or another.

The show was fantastic. My wife even enjoyed the show and she's not really into KISS.

This video was shot with an iPhone so obviously, it isn't "pro camera" quality. Having said that, enjoy it for what it is.

Post by Wichita77 » Thu May 02, 2019 8:09 pm

To begin with, the following is actually my journal entry, shared here for those who are interested.

Prologue

When I first heard that KISS was planning their End of the Road tour, I thought back on the two things left on my Kiss bucket list. In all my years as a fan, I’d never had floor seats to a show or gotten my picture taken with the band. With the kids moved out now, and this likely being my last chance to see KISS ever again, I got my credit card out, joined the KISS Army, and was there the minute tickets were available.

Within minutes of the sale beginning, I knocked one of those items off the list and purchased a 9th-row ticket. I couldn’t pull the trigger on the Meet and Greet, however. It had been reduced from an awesome encounter with the band to a quick photo, so reluctantly decided to leave that bucket list item unchecked…

April 9th, 2019


Out of all the places to go to a concert, Nashville is one of very best. Honky-tonks line the streets leading to the Arena, playing music live and loud, pumped outside to compete for the business of the tourists packing the streets. While it is country music, it is the more the upbeat moving kind that even us rockers can appreciate. As I walked past one place, the band was even playing Rock n Roll All Nite for the flood of people in town with Kiss shirts on looking to loosen up before the show.

I thought about stopping in and finding some KISS fans to share some pre-show laughs with but decided to go to the venue instead to see if a merch table was outside like they are for most shows here. As I walked I thought back on my first KISS concert on January 9, 1977, over four decades ago. In those days before the internet, there was a magic and mystery to life that is just no longer there. Back then all I knew of KISS came from pictures in a magazine and a memory of a television special I saw one time on TV. Only a borrowed cassette of KISS Alive gave me an idea of what to expect for that first time. KISS was something totally new, not just to us in the audience but for the band as well, and yet in the four years since they had started they'd gone from being an idea to icons. As they came to life in thunderous, full glory on that day in Wichita, there was an energy and impact that is impossible to describe.

Going back into their world 42 years later, I knew that time had impacted the band. The internet had not only taken the mystery out of the band, but painstakingly dissected and over-analyzed everything about them and the show that I wondered if there would be any magic left, but still, I'd made up my mind to roll with it. If I plan a trip and it rains, I won't let it ruin my vacation, I make the best of it. Likewise, I wasn't about to let old age or the voices of critics then or now get in the way of the experience of seeing KISS this one last time. I'd like to think that making the best of any situation is an attitude KISS passed along to me.

When I found my spot, I was fortunate that I was surrounded by people with the same mindset that I had. Two young girls (probably early and late 20s) were in front of me. Turns out that they were real fans too as they would prove later by singing along with most of the songs. Sitting next to me was an attractive woman who was dateless for the longest time as her boyfriend was away doing the meet and greet. In a cool way, I got to borrow his date as the two of us hit it off immediately and got to know each other for the hour before Garibaldi took the stage.

Thanks to a podcast I had seen on the forum, I was able to impress my “date” some background information on the artist as he got to work. While I was initially skeptical of having a performance artist open the show, I immediately saw the wisdom in it. Not only did it make for a quick breakdown before KISS, but was he engaging and fun, giving the audience a chance to interact with each other and bond as the image began coming together. She and I talked about the first time she saw Aerosmith, or my run-in with Joe Perry at a guitar store, as he painted Steven Tylers portrait. With each painting, we launched into other topics of discussion. It also added a bit of culture to the experience that suited the audience.

When the artist was done, I looked up at the KISS curtain. I was close enough to see the patches and mends it had gone through over the years. There was some obvious symbolism there that made me think back on what I’d been through in my many years as a fan.

I laugh when some people call me a blind flag-waving sheep for wanting to go to this show, as that really is pretty far from the truth. When the band gave up the makeup, I quit seeing them live. I still followed them and I bought the music, but I didn’t want to see my superheroes step down from Mount Olympus to be just another band. Later, however, after seeing MTV unplugged, I’d wished I had not deprived myself of those memories. Maybe that’s another reason why I decided to make the most out of this situation and accept things the way they are, rather than chance regrets later.

Finally came the open drum riff of Led Zepplin’s Rock and Roll. I came off of my chair like I was yanked off of it by an invisible force. Others came up too, separating those of us who had been to a KISS show before from those who hadn’t.

Then came the video of the band walking to the stage, then the famous intro, then the explosions, the chords, and the falling curtain as KISS descended on their elevated pods, coming to Earth in a cloud of fog, sparks and fire.

Seeing this happen up close was an entirely different experience for me. While I’ve enjoyed all of my prior KISS shows from further back, the effect of having my entire field of view filled with the stage was incredible. It was like the difference between black and white and color, or watching something on a computer monitor and then putting on the 3D goggles--all of that, only much more intense. Instead of just watching the show, I felt like I was in the middle of it, especially as the band would look down at us and interact. Up close it is total sensory overload in all of its glorious splendor. I was glad I got the seat I did for this last experience with the band.

The audience was the other thing that my floor seat gave me an appreciation of. The power, energy and dynamic of a live audience is something you can only feel when you are there, and so much more intense when it is all happening behind you. No video on youtube can capture it, and even professional recordings can only hint at the power of it.

All that to say, if you are planning to buy tickets to a future show, I would highly recommend that you get as close to the action that you can afford.

The band's energy was high as they fed off of the crowd. From my close proximity, I rarely looked at the screens and could see from Paul’s expression that he was happy to be there. He smiled and looked out at the sea of faces as if snapping mental pictures of us. This was the last time he'd ever get that view of Nashville, and the last time we would ever see a legendary KISS show.

The band sounded great too. While I had a clear direct view of their faces, I never noticed any kind of trickery. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t happening, but the effect was seamless enough to where I didn’t notice it. To those on the fence over this issue, let me tell you that it sounded live, looked live and most important to me it FELT live.

As each song on the setlist was checked off, I savored the moment as much as I could, drawing every bit of enjoyment I could out of each one. I sang my parts with the crowd on Say Yeah, I Love it Loud, and pretty much every other song. One of the girls in front me was trying to get Paul’s attention (successfully and deservedly I might add) while the other one turned around often to sing along with me. I’ll never forget being face to face with her singing Lick it Up.

At one point in the evening, Paul asked the crowd about how many of us were seeing them for the first time. The response surprised me as it was nearly as loud as when all of us were cheering. It dawned on me then just how smart Paul really was about this whole thing.

He probably realized that he couldn’t please a big percentage of their “diehard” fans as many were calling for them to quit long ago or get the dysfunctional (poorly playing) originals back together to play deep cuts. He probably figured that even if he tried to give everyone what they wanted, they’d complain about rough vocals or assisted vocals, and probably wouldn’t come together strong enough to support an arena tour anyway.

So he created a demand to see a KISS show with a new audience before it was too late, promising a new level to the legendary spectacle, designed to blow them and all of their competition away. He knew fans like me would be there too, helping the new ones along. Looking back to when Paul was doing press for the tour, he seemed to be deliberately pushing away the “naysayers” and courting new fans. In the end, KISS did whatever they had to do, pulling out all of the stops, and found a way to pack arenas with new people who wanted to see this event for themselves.

As I stood there pumping my fist to the music, I was glad he did because in a way it was like 1977, as we were all new fans back then too, with the same objective of having the time of their lives.

Well done Paul.

Finally, the moment came when the confetti rained down. For me it was like that scene in the Shawshank Redemption when Tim Robbins looked up with arms open, fully appreciating what it is to be free. I was doing the same thing, fully appreciating the 42 years I have had with KISS playing in the background of my life. As the confetti-covered me, I looked at the stage for the last time and took a mental picture of my own of a night I’d never forget.

I have seen Phantom of the Opera with Michael Crawford and a full orchestra in Los Angeles, and I've watched blues players on the streets of New Orleans playing the best guitar I've ever heard for spare change. I love and appreciate live performances and musicianship. For me, going to see KISS is all about that feeling I get at a KISS concert, which they completely delivered on, once again.

I left the show feeling much like I did at the first one—ears ringing and somewhat stunned by what I'd just gone through. I was glad that my favorite band didn't end like so many others do, playing small venues and State Fairs until they faded away. They went out big with a multi-million dollar production, leaving those of us who went with a memory that ranks with the best of them.

The only regret that I had that night was not getting that picture made with the band in makeup. I tried a couple of times to get a shot of me in the foreground and the band playing behind me, but they didn't work out either.

Epilogue

The other day while watching Youtube videos of the Nashville show, something in the background caught my eye. I backed it up and went full screen to see something that made me roar with laughter. There behind the band, on the giant screen, I saw my face, front and center, in one of the crowd shots, singing along to Heaven's on Fire.

I took a screenshot of it and now, I finally, at long last, have my selfie with the band. It's not as clear as the M&G shots, but for me, it couldn't have been a more perfect depiction of my life as a KISS fan... there I was up there on stage, backing up the band, cheering our victory.

I can now say I made it to the end of the road with my favorite band, with no regrets.

FYI--I'm the giant face directly over Gene's left shoulder. :)

PS--If anyone shot a clearer, closer shot of that song, PM me and we'll work something out.

There it is!! The long-awaited Witchita/Nashville review!
Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. I completely agree with you that it's more fitting for Kiss to go out with a bang than to just fade away.

That's hilarious about seeing yourself in the youtube video--and I'd say it more than makes up for the missed selfie. :D
What a great experience all around. :cheers:
Next you'll hopefully tell us about the M&G with Ace.

Thanks! I must admit that I spent a little more time writing that one, knowing that you and a couple of others were waiting for it.

My Ace experience turned out to be pretty interesting too. I have a thread in the General Kiss Discussion area called

Ace Frehley Guitar Signing Review

Thanks again for adding to the enjoyment of being here.
