The kings of the night time world rose to the occasion last night as they made their grand entrance in Toronto riding the back of a giant metallic spider. Playing to an army of fans at the Molson Amphitheatre, Kiss delivered their most explosive performance yet with this year's 'Monster' Tour. Named for their 20th studio album that reached number three on the Billboard 200 chart, Kiss, after forty years, continue to enjoy their success while pushing rock and roll theatrics to a new level of spectacular.


With his signature over the top style, Paul Stanley kept the night electric as he strutted the stage in his seven inch leather heels, pointing out to huge applause that although Toronto is known for its politeness, it by no means meant they didn't know how to party. Upon hearing an ear piercing invitation from the crowd, Stanley zip-lined overhead to a secondary platform, where the more intimate Star Child showed off his "Love Gun". Back on stage, the pure power of Gene Simmons and his Demon persona was undeniable as the bigger than life character spewed blood and breathed fire over his worshiping army. Not to be outdone, Spaceman Tommy Thayer shredded the frets with a fiery guitar solo accompanied by the hard driving drummer and "Catman" Eric Singer who simply pulled out a bazooka to top the Spaceman's pyro guitar.



Kiss hosted their party with a nineteen song marathon that had fans calling for "Dr. Love" while the almighty "God of Thunder" rained down blood and the "War Machine" drummed up its artillery of fire balls. The curtain of flames had the "Heaven's on Fire" and fans had no choice but to "Lick it Up" while giving a "Say Yeah" to the red hot extravaganza. The "Outta of this World" experience ended with a flurry of confetti and as Kiss left the stage, their legacy to "Rock and Roll all Nite" remained firmly intact.

The weekly entertainment newspaper here NOW MAGAZINE came out today and has a very positive review of the Toronto show along with a large photo of Gene & Paul from the show.

Here's the article but with different pics:

Awesome photos!

I was at this concert. My very first KISS concert and it was the best night of my life. My favorite part was Gene's bass solo and God of Thunder. I was screaming so loud and singing along to the song and all my other favorite songs that were on the setlist. I love how Paul tried to engage us by getting him to shout out his name as loud as possible before he swung out into the crowd for Love Gun. I also think Tommy did a great job singing Outta This World (which I also sang along to)

I do have some photos from the concert when I went but they're not very good because I was at the back of the venue (section 402 but I still could see all the guys on the stage from where I was standing) cause my friend couldn't afford the closer seats. If KISS comes back to the amphitheatre in Toronto and I'm sure they will next year or so, I will try to get a better seat so I can get better photos.

But if you want to see some photos I'll gladly put some up. Let me know if you do.
