I bet KISS had a much bigger crowd than that when they headlined in 2010. I was there and that place was PACKED.

Show is tonight and there's still a good deal of seating tix left for this small place. Three sections in particular have a lot of seats left, and they aren't even crazy expensive. We'll see if walk-ups fill 'em. Things sure have changed since '09.

Was waiting to see if any good seats opened up at a reasonable price. Looks like I'm skipping them this year.

It should be okay friend, here's the forecast for today. It looks pretty good.

It's gonna be a great one. With less than a thousand seats left in the pavilion the KISS Army is marching loud and proud!!! Let's hope this walk up we've been reading about even sells it out.

I hope to bump into some of you crazy kids today.

That makes perfect sense.

It's gonna be close my brother. If the seats are sold out there's gonna be nothing left to upgrade to.

Fun venue for a show though, this is where I saw Kiss/Crue, hope all who go have a good time!

And don't let some rain ruin it if it rains. Heck sometimes on a humid night it hits the spot. I think I said here before, I saw Crue and the Scorps at Jones Beach and it rained HARD and the show was a total blast, the pouring rain added a fun cooling element to it all (not to mention all the female t-shirts that got soaked, hey just being honest).
