I hope everyone going will have a great time. The review I read in a German newspaper from the sold-out Berlin show was very positive indeed. 6 out of 6 stars - Absolute Weltklasse (Absolutely World Class).

Enjoy people!

Just got back. Full show, all effects worked. Paul wasn't in such a great spirits as he was in Berlin, but still good. Vocally he's adjusting pretty well.
Was nice meeting heart_of_chrome before the show!

KISS looks amazing in 2013. Seriously. Their image got a great makeover in 2009, thankfully. They look fantastic, especially with these costumes and the stage.

I know Kiss isn't exactly known for changing up their set lists, but isn't this the most stagnant set list in recent memory?
No changes, no swapping songs, no changes to song order, pretty much the exact same show every night?

It's only a "stagnant set list" if you go to more than one show.

Anyone who's followed the band knows they don't do much set list swapping, and they limit the number of new songs, other than maybe 2004.

To expect anything else is wishful thinking.

They really do sound good. Paul's voice is working okay in a live setting. The band is working well together and Paul is adjusting to his limitations. The sky isn't falling.

Listening to the show now. Well, watching it.

They sound fantastic and Paul is sticking in his range and it's good.

I'm impressed with how great they're sounding live. 2009 onward they've been fantastic in concert and no sign of slowing down. I had my doubts with New Orleans 2012, but nope - they've long since recovered with The Tour and Australia and now this.

Good job, KISS.

There were quite a few song changes during the "Rock The Nation" tour in 2004. They also made some setlist changes on other tours since 2000.

Pics look great!

My only thought is that they really should be playing more from the album they are touring to promote.

Hopefully by the time the Canadian tour gets around here, they will be doing that.

Guest Reviewer: Gerasimos Kavvadas

KISS released “Monster” in 2012, an album that rightfully pleased their fans a lot! So, it was about time they were coming back to Europe after 3 years and their “Sonic Boom Over Europe” tour in 2010.

It was Prague’s turn in a packed O2 Arena when at 9:15 we heard the scream “Allright Praaaaague!!! You wanted the best, you’ve got the best! The hottest band in the world – KISS!”. As the curtain falls we see the “spider” on top of the stage with KISS –like they were coming out from a fairytale- playing “Psycho Circus” destroying the arena and every inhibition, or suspiciousness that anyone could possibly have that night. Without losing any time stronger than ever KISS carry on with “Shout It Out Loud”, and “Let Me Go Rock’n’Roll”.


Two huge banners with the legendary KISS Army logo are on both sides of the stage and the four masked knights wouldn’t leave you alone with “I Love It Loud”, “Hell Or Hallelujah” and “War Machine” where the “Demon” Simmons spits a huge flame from his lungs! “Heaven’s On Fire” and “Deuce” are up next with the tireless duo of Stanley and Simmons portraying their amazing feeling for what they do. Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer take the lead on “Shock Me” until the first chorus and the jam followed by a fireworks effect, after the guitarist sung on “Outta This World”, another song from “Monster”. Their last four songs before the encore is simply devastating: “God Of Thunder” with solo, blood and Simmons flying around while the crowd is in ecstasy. Even some of the coolest ones are flabbergasted now! “Lick It Up” and “Love Gun” where Stanley flies over our heads, while on “Rock And Roll All Nite” there is absolute mayhem with Simmons and Thayer on two gigantic hydraulic platforms over the crowd thirty meters inside their stage set, while Stanley destroys his guitar.

The encore features “Detroit Rock City”, “I Was Made For Loving You” and “Black Diamond” on a crescendo of fireworks where Singer proves not only his amazing vocal abilities, but the fact that kept the band in perfect shape throughout their latest studio albums, as well as live shows, as well. This is a two-hour great show that doesn’t make you regret your choice to attend. It’s worth it!

Yes, KISS are better than 2008, and 2010. I don’t know how they do it, and I don’t care. They are better. They released two very good albums, they tour, as they celebrate their 40th anniversary of a successful career and looking ahead because the future belongs to the strong ones!
