I personally forwarded it to a good friend that is very close to the inner circle so the band and mgmt is aware of this. Let's all hope they play this one for her, it would not only be great to hear the full band do it again but a classy gesture from Kiss!

No IWMFLY. Outta This World remained as did War Machine. Was anyone expecting anything crazy (other than Crazy Nights and RARAN)?

Detroit from Mackay, but if that is a huge screen, well, ok, maybe I expected something else.. The stage looks good anyway.

That WAS cool ... and:

1) I'd like to apply to write new lines for Gene

2) Has anyone else been enjoying Paul's stage wig for the Oz run? It's almost Animalize/Monsters or Rock tour '88 in appearance!

I think Paul kept all his old wigs, and decided to drag that one out for this tour.

Everytime they tour I think it might be the last, but they continue to amaze me. Honestly, I think they performed better and were more energized this tour than 2003, '04 and '08. Paul's voice is the only career threatening issue but he seemed to be better this tour than he was in recent years. Live you barely even notice it.
I can see them touring again. 2015 for a few shows perhaps ? Wouldn't surprise me...

Nice tribute to acknowledge her by name. Also, if any of you cry over the whole song not being done...I will hit you over the head with a e-2x4.

Yep. I could be wrong, but it seems to me that when they've done this song in more recent history, it was basically a Paul solo and he didn't do the whole thing? So, no surprise he didn't play the entire song.... 8)

Well done, Paul!

Great vibe with that and apparently the family was moved by the gesture. How was the crowd for any Aussie's who can comment? Attendance?

Does the Aussie media view the tour as a success and what the view of the Aussie Kiss Army? 8 shows... :)

BTW, does anyone from NZ fly over for something like this?

That is a bit better then the usual setlist. Nice to see Deuce back. Psycho Circus is an interesting addition. Looks like it was a very successful tour. Has it helped Monster's sales over there? Any numbers?
