About what time has KISS been hitting the stage on this tour with those bands? I'm assuming they wait until dark in the sheds, right?

So, any word on the Raleigh show? How was the performance? Did the band have another good turnout?

The Raleigh show was fantastic...the band were on fire and sounded great. Over 16,000 in attendance last night. No surprises as far as the set list, etc. but you can clearly see they are having a blast. Everyone was in good spirits both before and during the show. This is the happiest I've seen the band since the Revenge era, and it's just infectious...plus watching the kids in the crowd just going insane is so much fun.

We got to do a picture with the group last night and, despite the many times I've met them and been around them, I turned into a six year-old when I was up there. What a great experience that was the icing on the cake of seeing two great shows in two nights.

Every time you see KISS now, it's hard to know if it will be the last time or not, but I certainly hope I get to see many more shows if they are as fun and exciting as this weekend's were.

I removed my post because now my wife and I are being required to prove we attend Kiss shows if we aren't seen by the self appointed Kiss police.
