[quote="andykiss78"][quote="OblitzO"]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.[/quote]


Why do Crue have the more impressive stage show? Can you be specific?

I think KISS fans are so used to the KISS stage show that they can't see it from a person's perspective who has never seen KISS.

Once again, please tell me how the hell the Crue have a better stage show. Apart from Tommy's rollercoaster, what else is there?[/quote]

Your right! When I see kiss I think oh here's the fire breathing bit, heres where Paul flys. I mean last night I was singing along to lick it up and I caught myself singing "cmon people and clap your hands" which I thought was quite sad hehe.

But that aside crüe had more to their staging, more going on, girls dangling from the truss, used the screens better and dare I say more pyro. Walking to the stage through the crowd was cool to. Kiss rely to much on screens but I thought the new lifts were awesome and I've never seen em use so much confetti at the end.

But don't get me wrong I enjoyed kiss. I'm not a hater. I wasn't that interested in seeing crüe again and musically they were dreadful. But as far as spectacle goes, through my jaded eyes, they were better.

By the way, a 'fan' at the M&G asked Eric to sign a page in the tour book which was the original line up, Eric asked, 'You want me to sign that? Why would I sign a picture thats not me?" He then flicked through the program found his own pic and signed it... I thought it was cool .

I wish the reviewers(people actually there) would stop telling us how packed it was. We all know that once the numbers don't get reported, the usual suspects will crawl out of the wood work to tell us how bad it was attended.Or claim that all the tickets/half price(same old suspects in every thread) were given away, whatever they need to say. I do find it funny that no one took Julian's little song for what it really was. Shows how some things go over people's head's.

Pre-emptive whining about something that hasn't even happened. Gotta love that.

Nah, stating facts is never whining, just pointing out what will happened based on what has happened many many times around here.

You'd be hard pressed to find evidence of where it DOESN'T happen. Maybe people are finally tiring of the same posters posting the same complaints in multiple threads. It has to get old posting the same dribble. Sure gets old reading it or I should say having to scroll through it to talk about what the thread was originally about in the first place.

[quote="Mike's KISS 1978"][quote="shupey"]Amazing. Just amazing. I hope I never become as hate filled or as jaded toward KISS as some fans here are. Not only can you not allow yourself to suspend reality for an hour or two but you try to make it hard for those who want to enjoy the show. I get it. You don't like that they don't play 17 new songs each time they go out or that the stage resembles something some other band used some other time or that they breath fire, spit blood, fly through the air, shoot rockets, have Tommy and Eric in make-up they didn't invent etc... but does each show thread have to have all this whining? Is it really needed? Do us all a favor and go see U2 or The Stones or Justin Frickin Bieber.[/quote]


Well played, sir![/quote]

[quote="VaughanGF"]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.[/quote]

great review! thanks!

We'll have to remember that when certain people claim others are whining about two imitators in the band, Paul's vocal issues, stale sets, etc.

Just had a check in on this. Some nice new stage elements, to at least keep it a little bit fresh for those of us who follow closely. Like the new risers...

It's a totally different lighting rig as well.

"The Tour" stage might be the shortest lived set since the evolving Asylum stage.

Glad our Aussie friends got something somewhat fresh.

It's a shame that they can't toss in Flaming Youth or Sweet Pain, seeing as they rehearse them. It's not laziness. It's adherence to the formula.
