Yes...assuredly doomed. :D

It appears yearly free tickets is a provision of Live Nation's new 10 year contract with the city.

Yes, but a great show with "All The Way" in the set. Nearly wet myself. Enjoyed the M&G too.

I got you bro, I took it as a compliment and it was greatly appreciated. I was just making reference to me spending WAY too much time on here. I love interacting with my brethren that I'm cool with...and I even like the exchanges with the couple of Doo Doo birds that are flying around sometimes. Just trying to do my share by showing the uninitiated the err of their ways.

KISS Army forever!

Good site.
I hope the Lep changes the set list up a bit for the Lep fans.
Heck, I hope Kiss changes up the set list throughout the tour as well.

Since it was dead around here, I wanted to see if anyone was still awake.

Psycho Circus opened the show and Hotter Than Hell replaced the displaced KOTNTW.

Interesting little shake-up. Like HTH and PC is better as an opener (though it's not my favorite one) Still wish LG & LIU would go back in the closet. 3rd different set list in 4 shows. Atleast they are trying.

I'm pretty happy with how the setlists are being moved around, re-jigged, call it what you like. The simple fact is, if you buy a ticket on this tour you're not going to be certain which setlist you're going to be seeing.

I like that.

Agree about LG & LIU. Would love to see them take the tour off. 8)

I like "Hotter Than Hell", but I sure don't like losing one of the rarer songs like "King Of The Night Time World". I'm just hoping that "Hide Your Heart" lasts so I can at least see that one.

Just got back.
Place was quite full. DL were excellent (my 1st time seeing them and they didn't disappoint). KISS did a fantastic job doing what they do: Working hard to please a big crowd. I went with several 1st-timers ranging in age from my wife's 15-year-old nephew to coworkers in their 30's and 40's. By the end of the night, all involved had big smiles.

Glad I was able to catch "Hide Your Heart," as I'd never before attended a KISS concert at which that was performed. The band sounded solid overall, particularly Gene's groovy basslines and Tommy's kickass leads.

Once again, feeling grateful and tired after a KISS concert.

OMG the guitars were bad. It sounds like it was a clean pre-feed as opposed to the overdriven channel. Not sure how the guitars/racks are set up. Lol. Then it all cleans up
soon as the vocal start. Technical glitch for sure.

There were problems with the sound for the first few songs.
