Chicago at Huntington Bank Pavilion: "a real treat from the original KISS Spaceman"

Post by StillAlive »

The outdoor venue is laid out much like a festival fairgrounds. The pathway to the seating is lined with tents offering all manner of food and drink. The stage blocks an otherwise gorgeous view of the city’s beautiful iconic skyline. One can enjoy the view though on the long and winding walk to and from Huntington Bank Pavilion’s entrance.

Opening for Cooper was original KISS lead guitarist Ace Frehley. He rocked the crowd with a 50 minute set consisting mostly of KISS songs including “Detroit Rock City” and “Deuce.” It was well received by the crowd that decided to show up early enough. Those that didn’t missed out on a real treat from the original KISS Spaceman.

Did the rain hold off?

I've never been to that venue. Is there a pavilion?

Will be in Milwaukee next week.

The floor, which had seats for this show instead of GA, has no covering. The grandstands in the back are covered.
The venue can accommodate 30k, but those grandstands were pushed way in for the show. So "capacity" was probably reduced by 2/3.

You would think the reviewer would do a little research…

I was there. The rain held off until the show had ended. It was starting to drizzle a little bit while walking back to the car. During the drive home it rained for a while. Nice night. A little windy, but otherwise good.
