Christ what are they wearing? And Gene with the Abe Lincoln mask chinstrap. Either wear it or don’t, put it in your pocket if you’re on stage doing a show.

That was cooler than the last 4 KISS shows i've seen! Those songs fit Paul's current vocal register better, & i don't have to hear the same songs!! It's unfortunate that those events cost so much.

Very cool.

And with his clothes and 'frown' expression he's doing often, Paul looks like Little Steven playing Silvio on "The Sopranos" but got up on stage for some jammin'. Maybe he'll go record.....in Denmark.

And why isn't Paul saving his voice for the show? Oh wait, that's right lol. (I'm sorry, it's late, I'm sleepy and I got nothing.)

The repertoire could be more versatile but other than that this is pretty cool.

Paul looked like he was having a great time during Goin' Blind. Probably wishful thinking, but wouldn't it be great if these little sessions rekindled his love for playing KISS live again and we got to see stuff like this in the main set?

Edit: he sounded really good during Hotter Than Hell (by his recent standards, I mean.)

Not ragging on Paul, cause he can't help it, but saying he sounded good - even by recent standards - is being generous. It's hard to hear him struggle.

I've seen three EOTR shows so far and I've enjoyed them but honestly I would much rather see this than another show.

That’s my biggest gripe with the tour. It seems with every leg something gets taken away.

By the time Australia sees the show, we will have reverted back to the 1973 club show stage.

I know it would never happen but I wish they would do an 80s/ non makeup era only show.

When I was at the Irvine show, that stage was small enough to where I could see how the smaller stage worked...
But then I thought back and it did seem pretty different to what I saw in 2020, and that was different from what I saw in 2019.

It's amazing how this tour started with what I thought was one of their best stages, and now it's slowly going backwards. I hope for their final show (assuming that's the one they will film for a video release) they bring back what the show looked like in 2019.

I’ve been to two. The effects were still great, but the lip syncing and playing to click take away any life of the performances.

Agreed. Frankly, it makes me cringe. :(
