I'll be there with 2 other friends.

We are in the midst of a horrible heat wave here in the DC area...I'm hoping it breaks in time for the concert and its somewhat tolerable.

Looking forward to this "new" stage Stanley is bragging about.

I'm not seeing them until mid September in Toronto and Darien Lake, but I must say that I'm looking forward to this tour.

Only 2 weeks until opening night. Enjoy...

+1 Toronto is a show on the heels of the night before. I hope Paul's voice isn't completely gone by then.

I personally don't think it will be any different than it has been for a while. I think that it was at its worst during the Fall 2009 tour. Since then, it's been at varying degrees of improvement. Of course, the improvement has been limited.

They have a night off between Toronto and Darien Lake, so I'll be able to judge whether 1 night off has any effect. By the way, if you want to hang out in Toronto, PM me. I'm going to the show with a friend from Montreal. We are driving into Toronto that day from Montreal. We are hoping to be in the area by 3:00 that day. We'll probably be down by the lake by 5:30, depending on where we decide to eat.

Just hope the set list isn't as manila as the last time they "co-headlined" but that's kind of what I'm expecting. I had a good time on that tour but looking back it was the most boring of the post 1996 era.

Well, I wasn't planning on going, but just got a pair of tickets third row dead center on Ticketmaster/Live Nation. There were a bunch available in third, fourth and fifth row, but they disappeared quick.

Seats are still popping up in rows 3-6 in Orch 2.

There are probably some expensive seats associated with the meet and greets popping up at regular price. You can probably get some very good seats at this show for a relatively good deal. I expect that will happen with other shows.

You may get price reductions in the last week as well.

This time I have lawn seats for $16 a piece. :wink:

I will be there and very psyched. Besides being a KISS fan since the 1970s, I am also a fan of Motley Crue so I am looking forward to seeing them live for the first time. So even if KISS plays the same old same old (and they will but it will be a great show), seeing Crue also really is added value to me. Just looking forward to the whole thing. And it's all about the premium parking too. Totally worth it!

Anybody have any ideas about showtime? It says 7:00 at Live Nation - but that's probably just what time the doors open - right?

UK band called "The Treatment". I looked them up on youtube, they look like a pretty decent warmup.

I'll be very curious to see how well tickets sell for this tour. I just checked ticket availability for the Atlanta show on the 24th and there still looks to be quite a few on sale.

If anyone is attending opening night in Bristow, and would like to contribute a blog concert review for posting in the FAQ News section, please send me a PM.

We'd be looking for something along the lines of the blogs that we ran for the July 4 London show:

Of course not. Actually hearing or seeing something live before making comment isn't usually necessary around these parts.
