My mind was blown tonight. Holy fuck.

Destroyed my 2009 KISS show. Just...destroyed it.
:shock:

Small highlight - I scored 2 autographed Tommy Thayer photos and a signed Eric Singer drum cover. And 3 Tommy guitar picks - also caught 2.

The 3 way high five after Tommy shooting Spidey in BD must be a thing now instead of the "freeze" stance.

Always good to get blown away at a Kiss show.

How did Paul sound at the show and how close were your seats.

The place was packed. It may not have been a full house, but it looked like it. All the seats were filled and still a ton of people out on the lawn.

All seats filled and HALF a lawn gets you to 12,500. Tomorrow is looking iffy. They might be lucky to get to half full.

The only part of the lawn I didn't see any people in was in the far back corner, and there were very few seats under the shelter that weren't taken. I'm going to predict 95% for attendance.

The iconic hard rock band arguably invented the arena rock spectacle, replete with synchronized pyrotechnics, elaborate stage sets and, of course, their signature face paint and glam rock demon costumes.

However, at some point — and we can debate all day long about exactly when this occurred — the pageantry became more important than the music.

And for the many fans that packed the Sleep Country Amphitheater on Friday night to see Kiss is concert, that's something they readily accept and anticipate. Sure, hearing "Rock and Roll All Nite" was great, but hearing it while being showered in an unrelenting spray of confetti is apparently even better.

In that regard, everyone got what they wanted out of this deal: Kiss got their captive audience; the attendees got their sensory overload.

What suffers in this transaction though is the music. As exciting as it was to see singer and guitarist Paul Stanley ride a zipline to a small revolving stage in the middle of the crowd to perform the title track to the band's 1977 album "Love Gun," the audience appeared more concerned with taking a cellphone picture than anything he was playing or singing. And the nonstop fireworks and explosions, timed to coincide with big moments in the songs, were at least three times as loud as the band's instruments. Making the mental adjustment to the radical changes in volume level was often taxing.

The quartet — Stanley, bassist and vocalist Gene Simmons, drummer Eric Singer, and guitarist (and former Portlander) Tommy Thayer — also rested on a tried and true set list of fist-pumping favorites. "Deuce," "I Love It Loud," "Lick It Up" and "Black Diamond" all made appearances, but the lack of deep cuts or curveballs left the more ardent Kiss enthusiasts feeling let down.

At a certain point, though, you just have to give yourself over to the experience because it is an experience more than it is a straight up rock show. There's no earthly reason why Simmons should take a moment to spew fake blood out of his mouth, nor is there an logical point to the hydraulic platforms that lifted the band members 40 feet in the air as they played. However, it sure was fun to watch it as it happens.
