Austin's gonna be 14,000 strong that night.

Last time I saw KISS in Austin I was at the Frank Erwin Center for Alive! 35.

Great show, great crowd.

It was my 40th birthday and what better present could I buy myself than 4th row center for the hottest band in the world! Everyone in town was talking about how it was the coldest day in like 20 years. I left NYC that morning and it was sunny and 65 degrees...figures. :D

Tickets are so soft for this show, they can barely retain the properties of a solid. Do not put these soft tickets in your pocket on your way to the show, because they will most likely dissolve long before you arrive at venue. So damn soft these tickets. :(

I think they're playing tricks on us KT. Some of those tickets left might be employee or comps the see they're not gonna use. A couple of new ones might pop up here or there.

I just counted 52 now.

Texas is always good to KISS. I expect all three shows to be sold out or close to it as of show time.

While the God Of Thunder for Christine Sixteen swap out makes this look even more like a greatest hits setlist -- especially when you compare it to Night #1, I MUCH prefer GOT to C16.

OK... throwing GOT back into the mix has me more excited for Tampa again. Still not pleased about PC as the opener though.

To all those who went...I hope it was everything you anticipated. I am hoping they mix the set-list up more often and not get stuck in the rut of the same set of songs.

I would love to hear "Creatures of the Night" added as an opener, mixing the openers a bit. I would love to hear the band add "Take Me" to the set as well as "Firehouse."

@Kissthat: Thanks so much for posting the set-list. :thumleft:

If you told me as a kid in '77 that after Gene spit blood in his solo he would fly up fifty feet to stand on a huge mechanical spider and sing God of Thunder I would've freaked out.
