I would imagine they are having exactly the same arguement over there as you said, but flipping the bands around:Homer Simpson wrote:By the way, just a quick observation....
Def Leppard played a set pretty much consisting of their hits and concert staples and most of the comments have praised their setlist.
Kiss did the same and the comments have been mixed. I wouldn't be surprised to find out on Def Leppard forums that their fans have mixed feelings about their set list and are a little more favorable to Kiss'.
Based on the comments about Def Leppard's setlist, it's easy to see why Kiss plays what they do.
"Not Foolin and Hysteria AGAIN??! Shouldnt they retire those, same songs year in, year out..At least Kiss brought out some old classics!"
Personally: Nice setlist, Id be very happy to have seen that, though it DOES seem a bit short, can anyone who was there confirm it? Still, first night of the tour, I can see a few things chopping and changing along the way.
As for being Paul-lite? Given the problems over recent years maybe this is them finally being realistic and accepting the fact, rather than just down-tuning and hoping things get better? Again, time will tell.
Everyone seems to have had a great night, and to be honest I wish Id have been there.
If this is Kiss in 2014 then it`s doing a good job with what it has.
