REVAMP the “Original 4” FAREWELL TOUR setlist

Post by caligari »

HERE’s A “KISS GAME” TO PLAY, FELLOW FAQERS!

OK, we’re all familiar with what the
reunion tour Setlist
was and how over the period of the entire reunion tour there were maybe about four different songs that occasionally rotated in and out the set before the tour ended…

Then we got the
psycho Circus tour setlist
which was basically the reunion set list -
dropping 3 & adding three songs from the
psycho Circus album…

Then we got the
farewell tour setlist…
Which was the
psycho Circus tour set list, but dropping 3 &
adding in the three most
famous non-make up songs…

Here’s how this KISS GAME goes…

Make a creative
- yet REALISTIC -
a set list totally made up of 20 of your personal favorite deep tracks that were NEVER played live
is just a silly wish list and not
playing THE GAME by it’s rules…

A 20 song
Alternate
farewell tour Setlist…

20 songs total: ONLY FROM AND INCLUDING The Albums:
1st “KISS” to “Music from The ELDER”
And a option of: YOU CAN include songs from the four 1978 solo albums if that is what you want the original KISS to play.


LASTLY,
WE KEEP IT REAL WITH
🔴ROCK AND ROLL ALL NITE / they HAVE to Play it.
&
🟢BETH / No BETH in the set - Peter doesn’t play.

So pick
18 MORE
from those albums mentioned above.
⭐️ Extra Credit for those who compose a setlist in order with solo spotlights, etc.

the end of which directly surges into the famous opening drum beat, while Paul goes into his final rap of the evening, urging everyone to sing along to “the rock and roll national anthem…”

Well that's absurd, they're clearly not going to play all those oddball songs that 95% of people wouldn't even know. You've also taken out almost all of the small handful of songs that they actually do HAVE to play.

I think the 2000 and 2001 setlists were pretty good. You could make a claim for She being in there maybe, that sounded good in 1998. And they could have put Nothin' To Lose back in. Otherwise I wouldn't have messed with it too much.

A revamped setlist have both classics and some surprises, imo. Here's my suggestion:

I Stole Your Love
Rocket Ride
Take Me
Shout It Out Loud
All American Man
God Of Thunder (fast version)
Hooligan
Wouldn't You Like To Know Me
Talk To Me
Watchin' You
Love Gun
Beth
She/Ace solo
Deuce
Makin' Love
Gene spits blood/100.000 Years (no drum solo)
Black Diamond
---
Detroit Rock City
Goodbye

Rock & Roll All Nite

You are wrong and here’s why…

If you say 95% of the audience wouldn’t know songs like baby driver… I will say that same 95% doesn’t know 100,000 years… Or calling Dr. love…

I disagree with what KISS HAS to play the exception of Detroit rock city
love gun and
rock ‘n’ roll all night… those
are the only songs
that have been consistently in a tour set list since they appeared and I have never left

every other song has left the set to return at a later date or sometimes never…

My only stretch of imagination is I don’t have them playing love gun

And this is “make believe” remember…
The farewell tour came and left…
And the
kiss Setlist
did not get interesting again until thayer n singer started putting their two cents in

If you don’t want to play along fine… Don’t contribute… But it seems some other people wanna have fun… So don’t rain on our parade
