The Arena capacity for KISS in Geneva is 8'000-8'500 (3'500 seated and the rest is floor standing), the maximum official capacity is 9'500 but for big productions, the floor is reduced from 6'000 to 4'500-5'000, because of the stage and backstage places. To this day, only about 200 tickets are still available ! During the Reunion they played the Geneva Arena in front of 4'600 people (and not 9'000 as listed by mistake in the Kiss Alive Forever book). Today almost the double ! I know a lot of neighboor french fans will also be there.

A total of about 20'000 (Geneva + Zurich) for Switzerland is huge !!!!

Great great great

Yesterday the show in Zurich was perfect, crowd (about 12'500 in the 13'000 capacity hall), sound (deafening, wow these concussions !), effects were just top ! Let's see tonight in Geneva at the Arena.

The Arena was sold out, packed tot the roof to welcome KISS in the french-speaking part of Switzerland, 8'500 people happy to be there.

Same show, set list as usual on this tour. A beautiful show.

When Paul yelled "Detroit Rock City", Gene began "Shout It Out Loud", he seemed confused and then Tommy and Paul were laughing, the fans too, it was really funny... maybe Gene will fire Gene for this ! :D

Paul also took a moment to talk about Ronnie James Dio.

For me the tour is over.

Long live KISS & RnR !

Much better crowd than the one in my hometown the day before! Maybe all the French ones knew how to rock. To me the show was much better since I wasn't satisfied with the people on Sunday.

Great gig!

Some additional info:
- Pauls black guitar didn't work during LMGRNR
- Dr. Love was dedicated to RJD
- The confetti guy made a little test during GGRNRTY II ;)
- Erics Mic didn't work during the solo for his shoot ;)

Thanks for posting!
