It's really packed here in Holmdel!! Gotta be close to a sellout. Vince Neil just literally walked past me. Anyhow, the crowd seems fired up. Also, KISS is DOOOOOOOMED!!! :P

3rd show of the tour, 105th so far since 1990 and possibly the best ever.

Had section 204, upgraded to section 101 3rd Row. Ridiculous! I have been front row before but the barricade was practically right at the edge of the stage so you were SUPER close.

Took hundreds of pics, HD vids and had my son there for his 3rd show. His birthday show. Paul threw a pick to him, which he dove and caught and to top it off, Eric walked to the edge of the stage during the encores, gestured for him, smiled and handed him the stick.

Class act all around.

I know some are bashing the check and Pledge thing but I love it and think it's well done. Tonight 3 Marines came out and held the check.

Same set, GREAT show, my son is speechless with how it went and I am very proud of him and the band for really doing it up for the fans.

Also saw one of the bands crew come out and grab some plastic surgery victim blond for use after the show. Always a nice addition to a show.

Just got back. Wont be posting review this time, but I can say that one major (bad) thing happened. Paul almost fell from his trapeze. For some reason it got really angled and Paul slipped but grabbed it when he was falling down. His weight was angling the trapeze even more and for a moment it looked like hes gonna fall into the crowd because he was hanging off of it but miraculously he made it back up. People were stunned and thats all they talked about afterwards.

People were stunned and thats all they talked about afterwards. That was really scary, my heart dropped when he made that drop and was danging off of the line fighting to stay on it
I think i have video of that. Will post everything this weekend.

Just got back (my haul is long). I've seen these guys 38 times now and this and the Camden show are some of my all-time favorites. They are just 'on' these days. Even songs they've been playing for ages like IWMFLY and DRC just sound tighter than ever.

The crowd in Holmdel was awesome. Just jam packed and ready to rock. That just makes the whole experience better. Tons of kids, hot girls and MILFS. :lol:

Paul's voice was the best I heard in a while. He was 'off' in Hershey, but was really good tonight. Plus, Tommy and Eric not only hold the fort down musically, but provide some pretty kick-ass backing vocals as well. And man, their combo solo is a joy to watch.

I'm not gonna go into the only part of the show that I don't like. I'll just say that I timed that moment with a concession stand visit. 8)

It was also great meeting up with LoveGuns before the show. It's always fun to talk with someone who loves KISS as much as you.

Like I mentioned earlier, I saw Vince Neil come though with like 3 or 4 hot blondes. I saw him leave with the same gaggle of blondes about 6 songs into the show. I also saw Bubba Ray from TNA Wrestling. He was out and about throughout the show in one of the main walkways. He would just wander around getting into the show and high fiving people. I saw security tell him to go to his seat on various occasions but it didn't seem to stop him. :lol:

Anyhow, all I can say is do NOT miss this tour! The show is an absolute blast. On the RTN tour, I saw them 3 times and felt that maybe I went once too many. On this tour, I've seen them 3 times and it's still not enough.

Great night, great band, great memories -- thanks KISS!!

Just got back... killer show, Paul sounded much better than in Camden.

I'll verify the deal about him flying back. I thought he was gonna come down.

Ok Heres my review

I don't know how they do it, but they just keep getting better and better. Somehow, instead of a decline they actually improve with age ( I think RTN tour pales in comparison to their current performances)! Just when you think that Kiss cannot be topped and brings the best music and show you can imagine, they get topped - by themselves. And just when you think they cant possibly get even better, they do. These four guys can bring a show like no one else. The bombs and the stage is fantastic, but all that only amplifies the energy that this fantastic four produces and passes into their music, performance and into the crowd. Even if you watch one of the members for the entire night its gonna be worth the price alone because each one of them is a show itself. When those guys came out accompanies by the crowd's thunderous roar, it was a start of a ride that simply cannot b expressed with words. Those four, black and silver, shiny figures showed once again why they lasted so long and why after so many decades theyre still selling out big arenas and are an active and big part of media and pop culture

There were some goofs too. Tommy forgot that they're suppose to do the Deuce swing and was as far away from the center as possible when it was 2 seconds away to the Deuce ending bit so he ran up to them from across the stage. The above mentioned Paul scare was another thing (check the video at 0:07 - KEjr1WiWoKA&feature=player_embedded - it was more visible from the side and not as brief as it seems here cause he was still struggling to hold on there).

Anyway, fantastic show and once again I had a time of my life. It was also nice to meet Kissman24 and it was also nice to see that hes as cool as I thought he will be. Heres the view I had

Did he slip or was he just teasing the audience by lowering his leg just
enough for them to reach it? He did this on both trips at the CT show.

Has KISS added platforms to the front of the stage now or is this just something specific to the venue? It looks like there's 3 or 4 of them at the edge of the stage, check out :30 to see what I mean:
