I'll bet 5 marbles that if they add anything new to the setlist, it will be at this show. Six days off and the previous show (Aug 21) is in the same state.

The next break this long is before Toronto. After Toronto there are only 5-10 shows left, so I don't think they would add a song for that short period.

Of course, I could be wrong.....

I agree...God of Thunder is a much better blood spitting song. I also hope they add Do you Love Me or KOTNTW.

The online ticket chart did not look good, but I would say it was sold out!

These shows have been having KILLER walk up sales. Another benefit of playing weekends almost exclusively. Lots of people (myself included) ride the fence on weekend shows right up until a few before the show.

It makes routing a little more difficult, and you have to salary your crew (essentially paying them for non-work days, in order to keep them from going on the road with another band) but the end result is a guaranteed better turn out. KISS are always gonna sell 6 - 7k from the army. Guaranteed first day sales. The rest are casual concert goers. Ten times easier to get them to attend a concert on the weekend.
Ask me to go see Bad Religion or Ratt (two bands I'm a "casual" fan of, just a for instance) on Tuesday in Cincinnati, I'll tell you "know way, can't do it." Ask me to go see the same bands in the same city (2 hrs away btw/fyi) on Friday and Saturday night...out comes the wallet.
