Prove me wrong. I look forward to it.
Well actually I was being funny. I would take that comment from a fellow KISS fan that's followed the band and he's seen it's peeks and valleys.

It was a shot at the band, if you read the article it's obvious. The "prove you wrong" wasn't a shot at you. But since it was brought up...the KISS Army is alive and well, and 40 years strong.

Very good show, much better than last year in Tampa. Arena was no more than 2/3 full to my eyes, if that. Highlight was indeed Out of This World, as bizarre as it feels to type that.

It sucks that KISS always does so poorly in Orlando, because the new arena is beautiful ... and just down the road from my house. ;)

Well, originals only? No, I supported most versions of KIss.
Thayer has a big head? Statements of fact are hard to e.
I am over the makeup thing, it is just silly now.
VV was a good songwriter, only in Kiss.

The army might be alive and well, but it has dwindled. There is no question, but I can appreciate your overall point.

To be fair, I don't think "the KISS Army has dwindled" is a criticism or a bash. It's dwindled on and off for 4 decades, even during periods regarded by many as the band's finest.

And if I were to try to support it, I sure wouldn't use attendance figures in Orlando, where KISS has usually done poorly. I don't think they sold out here on either the reunion or farewell tours.

Hey, does anybody know if there was a meet-and-greet in Orlando, and if so, how many people took part? THAT might be interesting to know.

Reunion they did sell out in Orlando. Farewell they didn't.
(Thanks, Jeff and Curt!)

A 'very large' group of people. Not sure what that means. :)

And thank YOU!

Fun fact: The Orlando date on the Farewell tour was the first one at which Peter descended from the lighting rig along with the other three guys.

"Outta This World" definitely sounds the best out of the 5 songs that they've played from "Monster". It's played and sung well and fits along with the other songs in the setlist the best.

There are places in the U.S. where KISS are hit or miss: Orlando, Boston, Pacific Northwest.
