Discussions, reviews, live-updates, meet-ups, etc!

If reporting from the show on your phone, use cut-down version of the message board at http://m.kissfaq.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Details:
Psycho Circus
Shout It Out Loud
Let Me Go, Rock 'N' Roll
I Love It Loud
Hell Or Hallelujah
War Machine
Heaven's on Fire
Deuce
Say Yeah
Shock Me / Outta This World
God of Thunder

Notes:
- From a local review: "Pyro, LED lights, giant video screens, and an eight-legged spider stage - reportedly the biggest of Kiss's career - topped out the visual portion of the concert. Add to that a collection of hits - not to mention flying band members - and there's no stopping a juggernaut like this when it gets on a roll. It even had fire, blood, concussion bombs, confetti cannons, and a smashed guitar for good measure" (Times Colonial).

Don't they close them all a couple of days before shows ? Looks like everything through July 14 is now closed.

I got that same message for the Aug 3 show in St. John's NL, but not for the Aug 4th. I think it's sold out.

I know you are well intentioned, but when you say someone from Canada with suggestions for Vancouver - Canada is WAAAAY bigger than the US and lots of Canadians haven't even been to the west coast. You might want to narrow your search to "someone from BC". :)

Common American mistake. :D

Even though I know they are not going to be playing anywhere near as much stuff from "MONSTER" that I think they should, I'm still pretty excited leading up to the first date of the Canadian tour!

Victoria is one of my favorite cities and I'm about three hours away from it. Check out China Town and go down a place called "Fantan Alley" . The place is loaded with all sorts of little shops plus there is a record shop in there as well and the guy almost always has KISS records.

Vancouver I'm not as familiar with but I will say go to Stanley Park and check out their Aquarium. Just beautiful in there...

Bold prediction...

I can't imagine them playing such a weak song, but they did it with "Within" and with several other songs through the years.

Then again, they've done more to promote that song recently than anything else from Monster except "Hell or Hallelujah".

My set for tonight...

1. Psycho Circus
2. Shout It Out Loud
3. Let Me Go, Rock 'n Roll
4. I Love It Loud
5. Hell or Hallelujah
6. War Machine (w/Firebreathing)
7. Right Here Right Now
8. Deuce
9. Say Yeah
10. Shock Me/Outta This World (w/jam)
11. God of Thunder (w/blood)
12. Lick It Up
13. Love Gun
14. Rock And Roll All Nite

15. Detroit Rock City
16. Calling Dr. Love (rotating throughout leg...if not, IWMFLY)
17. Black Diamond

Part of me thinks they might drop IWMFLY and do another rotating spot featuring Dr. Love, C16, Strutter, Do You Love Me?, etc...but the other part of me thinks that they're too lazy to switch the encores up.

I'd be dumbfounded if they didn't play Right Here Right Now, they just released a music video for it and it seems to have had more effort gone into it than HoH's video.

Very sensible setlist. They would be wise to listen to your suggestion. I still don't understand why don't throw in NTL or Beth.
