That's a pretty high bar you are setting there. The good news is that we can still live a pretty full life with only one, so....

I'll be there with my best buddy since grade school. We've been to at least 10 Kiss concerts together over the years.

One thing I'm pissed about is how Ticketmaster sells tickets. I jumped online as soon as tickets went on sale and got good seats. I remember that anything better was blocked out or marked as sold.

Well, here it is the day before the show, and better seats are now available!

Ah well, live and learn!

And cheaper. The same tickets we got at $175 are now going for less than $130. :?

In Irvine, Crue was on before 8pm. The odd thing there was that the ticket said 7pm, but The Treatment were already playing before 7pm so it's hard for me to say what time the Crue will be on. Just don't be surprised if they're already on stage by the time you get there. You'll see most of them, though.

Mötley Crüe are scheduled to go on every night at 7:30pm. I've seen the show three times so far and they usually came on right about 7:45pm.

It sure does. I feel a lot safer in Philadelphia. Camden has been the #1 most dangerous city in America, however I think another city took #1 this year, with Camden at #2.

It was up there according to Forbes, I remember seeing it! But it appears as though it's fallen out of the top 10 worst. That doesn't mean it's gotten better, it just means some other places are just extremely rough. All in all, Camden is not your typical hang out place!

Enjoy the show :lol:

Great KISS show as always. Quick highlights before bed....

1. I wasn't murdered.
2. Encore song was "Strutter".
3. Crowd definitely seemed more into KISS than Crue.
4. Paul's voice was as good as I've heard it in previous shows. I suppose it's the down tuning, but he managed it quite well tonight
5. "Hell or Hallelujah" sounded great tonight. Very tight. I didn't think it sounded as good when I saw them in Irvine, CA.
6. One of the guys I went with found a Peter Criss face shirt online and wore it solely for the intent to annoy me. :lol:
7. More people were there than I expected. Seeing all the tickets that were available on Live Nation as of yesterday, I expected to see more empty seats than there were.

Decent show. Crue, IMHO, blew KISS away tonight. Show wise, sound wise and energy wise. The KISS setlist is weak, drop a few, get some more lively stuff. The mix, where I sat, was muddy as hell but Camden always sounds like crap. Either way, pics etc to come soon. 3 more shows in the next 4 days!

Great show. Sound issues in the beginning...Couldn't hear Paul's guitar for the 1st couple songs, just all bass, lead guitar and drums. Kiss played 85 minutes. And we were treated to "Strutter."

Took my woman to her first KISS show, which she wasn't looking forward to (she was there for Crue). She enjoyed them both.

My friend, who sees KISS occasionally, found them to be the same old same old. I didn't want to feel that way, but it pretty much felt like KISS by the numbers. DRC and SIOL sounded incredibly slow, so the opening of the show was probably the least exciting of the 20 or so shows I've been to. Paul sounded better than last tour IMO, but everyone around me kinda laughed at the failing vocal acrobatics between songs.

It was a good time though, and I'm glad that I went... but it really feels like it's nearing the end.

I agree. DRC &SIOL were down tempo. Paul sounded okay. I feel the pace of the show was slower as far as playing is concerned. But, it's always great to see a Kiss

show.

loads of pics to come. brilliant show all around, Tommy/Eric should do a medley of KISS songs, i think it would go over better. some dick behind us kept yelling "where's ace!" all drunk. my girl turned around & told him to "shut the fuck up, no one cares" i was rollin!!!

my girl liked crue show more because she just enjoyed their show, the girls, drum roller coaster. said KISS had the better music, but just a huge screen behind them. we ran up to Paul while he was singing love gun right behind us.

security almost threw us out for moving up to empty seats, i mean they were empty, we even asked thge people next to the empty seats. my girl was yelling at him & i had to pull her away, then she went down & yelled a bit more, it was great!

some songs just sound odd tuned down, but then war machine G.O.T. & others were just nasty good.

hope some good vids turn up.

Camden review from last night

Post by cecil1 »

This was my 25th Kiss show, first time at Camden. I found the venue to be quite nice. Enjoyed the views looking back over to Philly, liked the setup inside. Much different that I expected based on what other people were saying.

I saw opening night of this tour in Bristow and thought Kiss was a disaster. My review of that show speaks for it's self. Everything to me seemed a bit off. Very disappointed in their performance. First time I ever left a Kiss concert feeling letdown.Thought the new stage sucked. Band seemed slow and lethargic. Crue kicked ass that night.

Last night, I feel that might have been the best I have ever seen KIss. Band had great energy, Paul sounded fine. Moving the screens in front of the stairs completely changed the stage for the better. I thought the stage and lighting were terrific. I feel the band was in fine form. One thing I noticed is, this lineup seems to really enjoy playing with one another. Paul, in paticular, looks super happy, and no doubt he is a rock star. I thought every song was great, and everything I love about this band was on display tonight. Now again, this is MY OPINION and some who were there last night might differ some, but I REALLY, REALLY, enjoyed KIss last night. And in the end, isn't that why we go in the first place?
