I don't bitch about anything. I expect nothing and therefore cannot be disappointed. :-)

I've never not had fun seeing a KISS show. Even watching them open for Aerosmith out on the lawn in the pouring down rain.

Seats have been slowly filling up thus far this morning, still surprised that there's a good amount of seats in the middle still available. The side sections are still filling up however there are still a decent amount of seats left. Lawn's still looking like it should fill up soon.

Really wishing LiveNation would make the numbers available per section on how many seats are left.

I figured they'd be a price cut this morning, maybe offices don't open till 10 am. Atlanta is usually half full(9000) for KISS now. Hell AeroKISS only pulled 13,000 there.

I will be giving a full report of the show when I get home afterwards. I'll be sure to let you know if the curfew line is used. I searched everywhere online but could not find any evidence of their being a time curfew for outdoor events in Atlanta, but that doesn't really mean anything one way or the other. There is a noise curfew at Chastain Park, you cannot exceed 110 db's.... so thankfully KISS are not playing there!

The time before last in Atlanta, we got the live debut of Say Yeah, so I'm thinking they might add a song or two to the set tonite cause Atlanta is special (mainly cause I'm there, natch.) :P

Thanks man! I saw Heart and Def Leppard there last year. They had to delay the show about an hour and a half for power issues from a Thunderstorm. Heart did cut their set a little short but never heard anything about a curfew. Leppard ended about 11:20 pm.

Not sure what time the show starts but there sure wasn't a line for the Lakewood exit on either side of the interstate. Passed by there 6:30 or so on the way home. Figured there would be some traffic backup on the ramps.

Treatment started at 6:45, Motley started at 7:45 ended at a few minutes after 9. This gave me some hope that KISS might play an extra song or two, but it was not to be. They went on about 9:40. Same setlist as the previous shows. Paul gave the curfew rap and they ended right at 11.

Motley played Live Wire instead of Looks That Kill which pleased me since Too Fast For Love is my favorite Motley album.

Motley really warms the crowd up well, they end on a high note with lots of lights and pyro and the crowd going wild for Kickstart My Heart. Which is pretty awesome because at that point everyone is pretty amped up for KISS.

The 1-2-3 punch of Detroit Rock City-Shout It Out Loud-I Love It Loud really gets the crowd going right away. Nobody left after Motley and to me it seemed that KISS got a better crowd response and was able to keep the crowd into it. With a more compact set, the high points of the show (for a mainstream minded crowd) really come at you one after the other....... Gene breathes fire, Paul flies, Tommy and Eric shoot rockets, Gene spits blood.... boom, boom, boom.... there never was a lull in the action, and they're hittin you with all they got.

Tommy & Eric's solo was a bit shorter than last tour, and a little bit different of a jam, seemed a little bit looser, I enjoyed it more.

No sparks from Gene's boots.

Way ( i mean way, way, WAY) more pyro and bombs at the end of Rock And Roll All Nite than I've ever seen by far, by a longshot. They really want to leave that lasting impression at the end. More confetti guns too, some of them half way back near the soundboard, so the place was just swimming in confetti.

I had to go into it with no expectations. Last KISS show I saw, I met them and that sat front row directly in front of Gene. So obviously that is not going to be topped. This time I was in row YY, Gene's side of the stage, just a few rows in front of the lawn, but I had a great time, the sound was pretty good, not too muddy, and the show was great. Paul sounded better than he has the last couple times I've seen them, there were no cringe moments. A very noticeable difference is Paul is doing a lot more of the background vocals than he had the last couple of tours. Black Diamond backgrounds sounded better than they have in a long time.... Shock Me as well.... a lot of the background harmonies were a lot tighter than they have been, I think tuning down has helped not only Paul, but all of them..... and tuning down gives the songs a bit more weight a bit more power, especially War Machine and God Of Thunder.

One kind of cool thing is the monitors hung from the ceiling obscured a big portion of the screen from my view, so I didn't get too caught up in watching the screen and mainly just watched the band on stage.

Personal highlights:

Detroit Rock City (always love this as an opener, and it's been awhile since it's been there... farewell tour I think?)
War Machine
Hell Or Hallelujah
God Of Thunder
Lick It Up (for some reason this song just cooked tonite... extra energy, normally I'm slightly bored with this song, though I've enjoyed it more recently with the Won't Get Fooled Again interlude, but this was probably the best performance I've seen of Lick It Up, maybe ever)
Black Diamond (the cats are so cooool!!)
Rock And Roll All Nite

really the whole set was great... I Love It Loud is generally the only song I get a bit bored with, and putting it up front in the set kinda helps that out... the show has just begun, I'm still in that "hey i'm seeing KISS" excitement phase, and then it's out of the way....

lessee anything else.......

it looked like Paul turned towards Eric during Firehouse and motioned for him to pick up the pace a bit, maybe it was dragging a tiny bit... I noticed maybe a very slight shift in tempo after Paul made this move, but it could have been my imagination. But he definitely turned around, looked right at Eric and started stomping his foot in an exaggerated manner.... so that's how I interpreted it. I'll have to listen back to the recording and see if I can hear it.


well that's probably about it. Still on that high that can only be attained by seeing KISS live. I was only going to see one show on this tour since it's such a short KISS show, but I had so much fun, I'll probably head up to Nashville and see it in September. why not? :D

oh it's definitely a smart move to have Motley open.... because after Vince warbles for an hour and change, Paul sounds even better. :-)


as far as re: Tommy's tweet..... Motley did have a hard time really getting the crowd going.... they really only popped at the end for Kickstart My Heart. It was definitely hot, and Motley were playing in full daylight, and the crowd really just wasn't warmed up and really into it until the end. There was definitely a lot more energy and crowd response for KISS in comparison.

This really makes no sense to me whatsoever...why can't they just man up and not say anything about playing 12 songs? Motley's playing 12 songs. Makes absolutely no sense to use the curfew excuse still since they were able to get their full set in before 11. Besides, they went over curfew by TEN TO FIFTEEN minutes the past three nights, surely they could have just played Crazy Nights and just tack on an extra five right?

Motley played Live Wire instead of Looks That Kill which pleased me since Too Fast For Love is my favorite Motley album.

Motley really warms the crowd up well, they end on a high note with lots of lights and pyro and the crowd going wild for Kickstart My Heart. Which is pretty awesome because at that point everyone is pretty amped up for KISS.

The 1-2-3 punch of Detroit Rock City-Shout It Out Loud-I Love It Loud really gets the crowd going right away. Nobody left after Motley and to me it seemed that KISS got a better crowd response and was able to keep the crowd into it. With a more compact set, the high points of the show (for a mainstream minded crowd) really come at you one after the other....... Gene breathes fire, Paul flies, Tommy and Eric shoot rockets, Gene spits blood.... boom, boom, boom.... there never was a lull in the action, and they're hittin you with all they got.

Tommy & Eric's solo was a bit shorter than last tour, and a little bit different of a jam, seemed a little bit looser, I enjoyed it more.

No sparks from Gene's boots.

Way ( i mean way, way, WAY) more pyro and bombs at the end of Rock And Roll All Nite than I've ever seen by far, by a longshot. They really want to leave that lasting impression at the end. More confetti guns too, some of them half way back near the soundboard, so the place was just swimming in confetti.

I had to go into it with no expectations. Last KISS show I saw, I met them and that sat front row directly in front of Gene. So obviously that is not going to be topped. This time I was in row YY, Gene's side of the stage, just a few rows in front of the lawn, but I had a great time, the sound was pretty good, not too muddy, and the show was great. Paul sounded better than he has the last couple times I've seen them, there were no cringe moments. A very noticeable difference is Paul is doing a lot more of the background vocals than he had the last couple of shows. Black Diamond backgrounds sounded better than they have in a long time.... Shock Me as well.... a lot of the background harmonies were a lot tighter than they have been, I think tuning down has helped not only Paul, but all of them..... and tuning down gives the songs a bit more weight a bit more power, especially War Machine and God Of Thunder.

One kind of cool thing is the monitors hung from the ceiling obscured a big portion of the screen from my view, so I didn't get too caught up in watching the screen and mainly just watched the band on stage.

Personal highlights:

Detroit Rock City (always love this as an opener, and it's been awhile since it's been there... farewell tour I think?)
War Machine
Hell Or Hallelujah
God Of Thunder
Lick It Up (for some reason this song just cooked tonite... extra energy, normally I'm slightly bored with this song, though I've enjoyed it more recently with the Won't Get Fooled Again interlude, but this was probably the best performance I've seen of Lick It Up, maybe ever)
Black Diamond (the cats are so cooool!!)
Rock And Roll All Nite

really the whole set was great... I Love It Loud is generally the only song I get a bit bored with, and putting it up front in the set kinda helps that out... the show has just begun, I'm still in that "hey i'm seeing KISS" excitement phase, and then it's out of the way....

lessee anything else.......

it looked like Paul turned towards Eric during Firehouse and motioned for him to pick up the pace a bit, maybe it was dragging a tiny bit... I noticed maybe a very slight shift in tempo after Paul made this move, but it could have been my imagination. But he definitely turned around, looked right at Eric and started stomping his foot in an exaggerated manner.... so that's how I interpreted it. I'll have to listen back to the recording and see if I can hear it.


well that's probably about it. Still on that high that can only be attained by seeing KISS live. I was only going to see one show on this tour since it's such a short KISS show, but I had so much fun, I'll probably head up to Nashville and see it in September. why not? :D
THANKS for your review, pal!

Erm...no? If I gave two shits about what Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee think about anything I'd join a Motley Crue forum...or question my sanity.

Believe me, I was doing everything I could to will them into throwing Deuce into the encores, but it just wasn't meant to be. :-) I'm pretty sure we're going to get the "curfew" line every night of the tour. It is what it is. At this point it has just become the Rock And Roll All Nite intro rap for this tour. I smiled and laughed as soon as he said it just because I knew it would probably cause yet another shitstorm, especially since they moved everything up 15 minutes tonight and still played the same length of set. But really, there's nothing any one of us can possibly do about it, so why get all bent out of shape about it? The show was awesome, I had a great time, and I got the same "KISS Concert" buzz that I get every time I see them. Every show they play is too short for me, so this was one was the same as the rest of em!! It felt like a full concert though. It didn't feel super short.
