Is this technically still "Hottest Show on Earth", by default?

Dunno yet. Had forgotten to edit out the graphic... We'll have to see if they call the tour anything.

I am just amazed they're playing there. Sacramento? Yes at Arco, but West Sacramento??? I used to work at Amtech Lighting which was in West Sac... when I lived in Citrus Heights. Wish I still did live there. I hope Paul's voice is stronger at this point.

i wouldn't be surprised if it is shaky at this gig, however his voice will likely get better as the tour continues.

I'm hoping for the full Destroyer album. Either way, it should be awesome. Warm late Spring night, Memorial Day weekend, on the famous Sacramento river in a good sized baseball stadium blowing up lots of crap and amazing a lot of people and thrilling lots of kids ... the next generation of the KISS Army, prepping them for KISS 2.0.

I will be there as well. Anyone know if there is an opening act and/or if we should expect KISS on at 9:00?

Yes, I saw a Sacramento Bee article on the event. It seems soon after gates open at 7pm a local band that plays 70s rock will be on the stage first. They are "Big Boss Graffiti". At 8pm the Miles Schon Band takes the stage. No mention if he's related to Neal Schon of Journey, although Journey did headline this event 2 years ago. Singing for the band is Lara Johnston (daughter of a Doobie Brother). She says she's excited to open for KISS and loves their stage presence. She has been involved with this event for the 3 years. Looks like KISS at 9pm or soon thereafter.

Sounds like a very cool or "Hotter Than Hell" evening. Pretty much sold out and as someone mentioned earlier they released some more $40 seats. At least 15,000 will be witness. I would think there would be some extra pyro and probably launching fireworks from behind the stage like at Cheyenne last year. From the pics of previous years it seems like a full sized stage ... so hopefully Gene and Paul fly. It might be a bit windy though. I know I wouldn't miss this.

Spirit is very curious to hear about this. Will they play Destroyer in it's entirety? Welcome back Spirit. I haven't heard anything about the set-list but maybe Paul will talk about it tonight on "Lopez Tonight".

See you all there. Oh, and I'm on the floor, row 8.

Thanks. That is very helpful. Looks like we may be showing up a bit later. I have no interest in seeing either of those acts and neither will my kids. Thanks again!

Julian, do you live in Frisco? I have lived there many times over the years, and am very familiar with that city!
