No

The place area under the tarp area in Montage was full, the lawn seats were about half full.

The show was freaking awesome! I just got back. My 2nd time seeing KISS. When they started playing Crazy Nights the guy that was in front of me looked at his wife and said "wow".

Sadly when we were leaving the venue Tommy and Eric were still "The new guys" as I heard a few people saying the new guitarist and drummer were good. The drum/guitar solo they did during Shock Me was pretty killer.

I think Gene might have messed up the lyrics on I'm an Animal.

Paul sounded the best he's sounded since 04 and didn't really sing backing vocals tonight.

They so far made over 152K for the troops fighting in wars.

Beth sounded wierd, but good. Wierd because Gene was electric, while Paul and Tommy were acoustic.

Every time I hear Gene sing "I'm An Animal" it sounds like he messes up the lyrics ... that song has grown on me, sounds more and more old school.

Scranton and the whole NEPA area is very meat and potato rock n roll folks. KISS usually does well in that area. Very blue collar region.

I saw the FAREWELL tour at that venue since it is my hometown.

This concert is probably the best I've heard Paul since they got back to the states.

A review from citizennews.com

KISS brings party to Toyota Pavilion
By Patrice Wilding (Staff Writer)
Published: August 16, 2010


Jason Farmer / times-shamrock Gene Simmons of KISS performs on stage at Toyota Pavillion Sunday night.

It's not like anyone ever accused legendary rockers KISS of needing a hand-up in the theatrics department, especially when performing live.

But on Sunday, Mother Nature stepped in earlier in the day to add some thunder, lightning and a deluge of rain as a warm-up act to the thrilling spectacle that was to come at Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain.

It was, however, going to take a lot more than some water and foul weather to douse the spirits of the KISS Army on hand last night. Fans and performers clad in shiny leather, black and white makeup and glam rock staples studs, platforms and capes, made it difficult to discern whether the people-watching was more entertaining in the audience or on the stage.

Veterans of the music scene for almost 40 years, the iconic band started their lively show for Northeastern Pennsylvania fans in a cloud of smoke, fire and sparks that whipped the crowd of thousands to their feet in a screaming frenzy of pure fun. Despite the fact that they are all well into their 50s now (guitarist Paul "Starchild" Stanley has famously had two hip replacement surgeries already), these guys still know how to party.

Moments before the headliners literally burst onto the stage, a giant KISS banner unfurled as Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" blared across the mountain grounds, rousing the audience to its feet in anticipation of their heroes. Opening with "Modern Day Delilah" off 2009's "Sonic Boom" album, KISS members switched things up and followed with a few throwbacks from their first record from 1974, including the hit "Firehouse."

The music became modern again with "Say Yeah," another single from "Sonic Boom," before bouncing back to "The Bible of KISS," as Stanley described their debut album, with the anthemic "Deuce."

"Crazy Crazy Nights" was up next, followed by "Calling Dr. Love," which gave tongue-wagging vocalist Gene "The Demon" Simmons a chance to take the lead as drummer Eric "Catman" Singer pounded heavy rhythms from risers high above the stage.

"Spaceman" Tommy Thayer took a turn on fronting duties with "Shock Me" from 1977's "Love Gun," which gave him a chance to show off his guitar-shredding capabilities.

Fans and performers, were in agreement with guitarist Stanley that KISS threw "one hell of a rock 'n' roll party here in Scranton," a city he subsequently called "Number One" in the state

What is up with all these positive reviews?

It must have something to do with Wal-Mart.

We were there!

Post by EncinoMan »

I went to the Scranton concert with my 2 sons and a friend [Sam]. It was my oldest son's second concert and my youngest son's 1st. I really wanted to take them back when they did the reunion tour but I thought they were too young. My mistake. I've been a fan since 1975. We were all supposed to be in make-up but I ran real short on time from poor planning. It's cool to see and read from the other people who were there. Damn, you all looked as old as me! :D If only it were the 70's again. They were the best concerts ever! Pure Rock & Roll and my ears didn't hurt afterwards. (I know Paul, ear plugs right) Sometime back in the 80's I think, Gene said they would still be playing if they had to roll them out in wheelchairs. I didn't think he was serious. Well, if I never get to see another Kiss concert it's been a great 35 years of KISS!!!

God bless you all!
Carlos
