Is it really needed? Do us all a favor and go see U2 or The Stones or Justin Frickin Bieber.
Or just move on and let those who still enjoy the band enjoy the band! At one time it was sad how some fans had become. 10 years on it's simply pathetic.
God forbid there is any discussion other than kissing the bands ass on every level. It's a message board and as long as TOS is not broken we should be allowed to speak our minds on how we feel and if so be it you should be allowed to defend what we don't like. If done with respect it makes for a fun debate.
Seriously? I don't think too many would think this site full of fanboys. There is plenty of debate and discussion, but as usual there are some miseryguts type folk who just can't enjoy. For fucks sake, the Aussies haven't had "the tour" yet. Nor have we seen if the band mix things up at all. Instead, there's full throttle negitivity that should be served up with razor blades. We'll revisit this after the next show, but I'm pretty sure Paul will be flying, gene breathing fire and puking blood, and them playing most to the same set. Still, three songs T least will be new Aussie performances....

Sorry, this is an unrealistic expectation. This band has over the top pyro, bombs and lighting effects that are timed to a second. It is not a show that can be flipped around on a dime. One or two songs that do not have effect-laden support could be changed, but the core songs linked to effects are always going to be in place for the respective tour.
Good point but Rush is in the same boat . Rush changed 3 or 4 songs every other night on this tour, it can be done. Kiss does Not have to open with DRC every night , they can flip it with any number of songs, but they don't
I hear you but disagree, esp with the opener which always has big effects. They could be more ambitious with internal tunes that are less effect-linked but not the opener IMO. Now do I wish they would change the opener? Have 2 or three worked out and arranged so the pyro and other effect settings were laid out and just switched? Of course. But, I do not expect that. Too many things that can go wrong.
It's all good, no need to agree . I look at it as you can have the same Pyro ect. with any opening tune. Just like they have in the past . Look , i Know they Have to play certian songs but they don't have to do them in the Same spot. Open with say , COTN and Close with DRC , ya know ? Not so hard for them to do

I loved it, they raised up and pointed to each other then just stood there, 'yeah we're not the originals, fuck you who cares'
No, Thomas pointed at Eric and said "look, it's Peter". Eric looked at Thomas and said "look, its Ace".

Of course you should be able to speak your mind and share your feelings. No one here thinks that you should kiss KISS' ass and not voice displeasure, when you have it (and in the case of some, that is all they ever have). It is true that there are more than a few people here that only spew forth negativity and hateful shit, not only to KISS, but to those who are still having a good time with the band. After a while, it starts to grate on ones nerves. It's almost like if someone likes KISS and doesn't mind line-ups and make-ups, then there is something wrong with them and they are just sheep that should have their KISS Army cards revoked.

if it grates on someone's nerves....ignore, block the poster you don't like or don't read the thread so many options. I use it often.....and still enjoy my time here and discussing all things Kiss negative and positive.

Pretty cool set-list. I'd like to witness this show. Psycho, 3 songs from Monster, War Machine, God of, Fire House .. Me likes. To experience this alive would be awesome. Can't wait what they have for Europe. Few more songs for sure.

Seems that was a good show overall!!! The additions to the stage looks great...the split screen and the new towers...one question...the big screen moves to the sides of the stage and splits to 4 screens ...???

Meh... Band sounds better than they did overall. Paul still can't sing this song anymore, which is unfortunate.
How they can charge money for this abortion of a show is beyond me. There is a sucker born every minute! :roll:

Okay. Wasn't talking about KISS, here. I was talking about I have come to expect not to see the same show twice from 311 and Pearl Jam. All I was saying is that I would like to see KISS do different songs. I have stated time and time again how KISS are prisoners to their own stage show.

I keep my expectations very realistic. Sorry for the confusion, there :lol:

BTW, have GOT and War Machine ever been played back to back before? That is a pretty cool 1-2 punch.

Ahhh... you have been here a long time, since the days when "douche" was a big time term of endearment, here at Shangri-La. I quit calling people that because I wound up spending so much time explaining to all the people that would be like, "not cool, Mike!" that it was cool. It was soooooooooooo cool. :lol:

Anyway, you are a big ol' douche!

Just got up from a great night at Kiss. I found the gig was more about the spectacle than the setlist. People were having a great time and the place was nearly full. Just a few spare nosebleeds in the top left and right. Don't know what it holds, but there must have been 12 - 14000 in I would guess. The band looked and sounded terrific. I was expecting Paul to sound much worse based on my instant lives and youtube clips. I was really trying to detect strain in his voice but you just can't notice at the venue, it is bizarre. I was stoked he sounded so great. There were people saying how amazing it was he still had the voice. A highlight for the crowd was the Paul Love Gun bit. Audiences absolutely love that kind of stuff. As a joke, I yelled out "That's nice, now play Love Gun" after Shandi and it got a lot of laughs from people around me. I knew Love Gun was next because I was right next to the Paul stage near the sound desk, and it was obvious it was getting prepped for the next song. Shannon was around the sound desk between Motley Crue and Kiss and she was nice to all the fans who wanted a pic. I didn't get a pic with her due to the crowds but she seemed in very high spirits.

The crowd absolutely loved the show. Flattest moments were the Monster tracks, but I didn't get the sense people weren't enjoying them still. They just didn't know the words! Even though a lot of the raps were recycled, people were totally engaged with Paul when he spoke. A big Tommy chant broke out in my section during the rocket firing bit, and people gave a lot of cheers for Tommy and Eric when Eric did his thing with the bazooka. For another joke I yelled "Do it for Ace" when Eric held the bazooka up to Tommy, and that also got a few laughs in my section.

It was a terrific gig. Better than I expected given Paul's vocal issues. I sensed no animosity towards Tommy and Eric from the crowd. During their bit they got a huge reception. While the set might seem tired, believe me the massive crowd ate it up. I'm now convinced that Kiss live is an entirely different thing to what we get from youtube clips. I was stoked my phone internet worked most of the gig so I could post the songs live as they happened. Sorry for a the shorthand and typos, it was pretty bumpy in my section so I did the best I could.

After the show the buzz was great. People genuinely loved it. They must have made an absolute killing from merch sales, the lines were enormous before and after. All I saw were thousands of people who wanted the best and got the best. I'm so proud of my favourite band for putting on the show they did. if anyone left disappointed, and didn't notice them. It was a great buzz.

I hope the rest of Australia enjoys the gigs, they are in for a treat.

Just a few spare nosebleeds in the top left and right. Don't know what it holds, but there must have been 12 - 14000 in I would guess. The band looked and sounded terrific. I was expecting Paul to sound much worse based on my instant lives and youtube clips. I was really trying to detect strain in his voice but you just can't notice at the venue, it is bizarre. I was stoked he sounded so great. There were people saying how amazing it was he still had the voice. A highlight for the crowd was the Paul Love Gun bit. Audiences absolutely love that kind of stuff. As a joke, I yelled out "That's nice, now play Love Gun" after Shandi and it got a lot of laughs from people around me. I knew Love Gun was next because I was right next to the Paul stage near the sound desk, and it was obvious it was getting prepped for the next song. Shannon was around the sound desk between Motley Crue and Kiss and she was nice to all the fans who wanted a pic. I didn't get a pic with her due to the crowds but she seemed in very high spirits.

The crowd absolutely loved the show. Flattest moments were the Monster tracks, but I didn't get the sense people weren't enjoying them still. They just didn't know the words! Even though a lot of the raps were recycled, people were totally engaged with Paul when he spoke. A big Tommy chant broke out in my section during the rocket firing bit, and people gave a lot of cheers for Tommy and Eric when Eric did his thing with the bazooka. For another joke I yelled "Do it for Ace" when Eric held the bazooka up to Tommy, and that also got a few laughs in my section.

It was a terrific gig. Better than I expected given Paul's vocal issues. I sensed no animosity towards Tommy and Eric from the crowd. During their bit they got a huge reception. While the set might seem tired, believe me the massive crowd ate it up. I'm now convinced that Kiss live is an entirely different thing to what we get from youtube clips. I was stoked my phone internet worked most of the gig so I could post the songs live as they happened. Sorry for a the shorthand and typos, it was pretty bumpy in my section so I did the best I could.

After the show the buzz was great. People genuinely loved it. They must have made an absolute killing from merch sales, the lines were enormous before and after. All I saw were thousands of people who wanted the best and got the best. I'm so proud of my favourite band for putting on the show they did. if anyone left disappointed, and didn't notice them. It was a great buzz.

I hope the rest of Australia enjoys the gigs, they are in for a treat.
Thanks for the updates last night. I was about to goto sleep at 11:30 and lets just say i went to sleep at 1:30am lol.

It was my pleasure doing the updates. I considered it my duty in the service of the Kiss Army. It was a real buzz posting the songs as they were happening, especially once my connection stayed good after the first 5 or so songs.

No, Thomas pointed at Eric and said "look, it's Peter". Eric looked at Thomas and said "look, its Ace".

True story. 8)

Damn you Mulder, quit making me laugh at stuff I don't like to laugh at. It's not fair and it makes me feel all wrong. :wink:

You could hear Paul loud and clear. It was a good mix.

It's good to see KISS back on stage and rockin' Australia. From the clips here, seems like Paul is doing some better and is using his voice a little wiser? The time off has helped some I believe.

Tommy and Eric don't deserve to be called that, but if it makes you feel all tough and cool, I'm sure they are big enough men to deal with childish taunts.

True. The real problem, though, is that he keeps making the black makeup thinner/smaller as his face gets fatter. He needs to expand those wings!

and if they werent on stage with two originals they would be playing to about 150 people
That's 50 more people than who would show up at an Ace show and 100 more people than who would show up at a Pete show.

It's always a Fun show but be carefull what you say about the Setlist , the fanboys are up in arms . How Dare You say Anything Bad about Kiss !
There is trouble in the forest,
And the creatures all have fled,
As the maples scream "Oppression!"
And the oaks just shake their heads...

And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe, and saw.
Put the tree in the shreader already.

Just got a message from my 21yo sister, another crüe fan doesn't like kiss. Her exact words were "kiss was fucking amazing". She thought crüe were ok.

I'm surprised. I think us diehards are jaded by the whole thing so we don't necessarily see just how good the show actually is.

For her to be more impressed with kiss when, she doesn't know the songs, doesn't particulary like them and crüe had the more impressive stage show is pretty cool to me.
