Taking my son tomorrow night. We're both really looking foward to it. I've only seen Kiss without the makeup in '83 and '85. I would love to hear a few different tunes, but I'll gladly take what I can get.

Going and taking my wife and daughter. Its my daughter's first time seeing KISS and I'm pretty excited about it. She finally gets to see what Daddy is so into. I looked at her iPod playlists the other day and I noticed that she had put several tunes from Sonic Boom in there. So cool! Meeting up with another KISSFAQ member before the show to exhange some things. Looking forward to the show!

That was me Thursday night. What am I talking about? I just saw them last night and I'm still amped up this morning. I had a 4 -5 hour trip there and back so it was 10 hours of driving and a little over two hours of Kiss, totally worth it. Hopefully I'll crash out hard later today and get some rest. I need it.

In the meantime have a great time tonight. I know you will.

Can't wait for tonite - I've only seen 1 show before - Greenville in 2001 - right before the end of the Farewell tour in Charleston where Peter trashed the drumset.

For several years there I lost interest in KISS. Then they put out the Kissologies. Now I'm back and can't wait for the show!!!

For folks that don't know, on the farewell tour (April 21, 2000) when KISS played Greenville, on the big screen where it says "KISS Loves You (insert city here)" it said Greenfield. The band issued an apology later. To their credit, they said Greenville every time that night.

when Eric's set rotates, there's a big piece of paper with the name of the city they are in... you'd think when playing MSG, he would need a sheet saying New York on it though :?

If "Shock Me" is indeed added, that should shake up more things than the set list....

If this is the case, it's not going to sit well with some. Dr. Love is appreciated though.

I guess Dr. Love is ok. But why can't they insert other songs....new, old, rare, obscure, cover...Anything!!!!!!!! Hell, even some Wicked Lester tunes would be good.

as Shock Me was done by Tommy 4 times before in March of last year (in Australia and New Zealand) the ONLY good thing about it would be the live CD soundboard recording of it just to get a good recording of it for the archives..
but lets make it a ONE off performance and get When Lightning Strikes in there for the love of god!!

They need to play some songs of SB...especially if they want to continue to sell copies. I was planning on buying at least 3 or 4 more copies of SB as 'stocking stuffers' this year. If I don't hear something other than MDD when I see them in Tampa next week or Chicago on the 6th, those stocking stuffers will be hand made CDR's rather than Walmart bought copies.

Went with the 'cheap seats' for the Tampa show. Seats are up front in section 329 which is right near the stage. Have great non-floor seats for the Chicago show.

As my boss had this week scheduled off I have to be at work so I couldnt follow them around Florida this time :-( so Tampa will be my only show this tour - so we did VIP - 4rth row center.
Should be a great show!

There seems to be a trend here. They add two new songs (I Stole Your Love and KOTNTW). They take them away. They return to the same set. They add two more new songs (Shock Me and Dr. Love). Anybody know what will happen next?

Down to 17 songs... Wow. Was 100,000 years 18 minutes all inclusive.

I just wish they'd promote this new album properly...

But I do think that this is the most interested that I've been in getting an Instant Live from this tour. I'll eventually hear it. However, I'm not buying any more than the 3 that I have coming until they add Sonic Boom songs.
