It's not a major change, but it's a change nonetheless and that shows that they're still tinkering. 8)

I had really great time at the show.KISS was really tight with a strong set.No drum solo or guitar solo.I was impressed with both Def Leppard and Kobra & the Lotus both performed really well.I saw Leppard at Cal expo many years ago ,they had severe sound issues on that tour.This show Leppard was great but we had to miss a chunk so that we could get a picture with KISS.Gene's flaming sword fell out when he slammed it into the block after breathing fire.Gene did his bass solo blood flew before "I Love It Loud". Paul swung out to the audience for "Love Gun" and remained for the "Black Diamond"intro. I've seen KISS since 1977 this was one of the very best shows I've seen. To the short jerk who offered my minor son weed be thankful I only yelled at you , some people don't want drugs don't give them to kids if you don't want to be arrested.

Great show.
Paul sounded good. In fact I heard people around me say he sound the same as he did during the reunion tour. Now, I don't think he was nearly that good, but it shows you that live his issues aren't as noticeable.
To me it looked like the lower pavilion was full, the upper pavilion where I was was about 75% and the lawn look packed.
Def Leppard was great and the crown loved them, this was defiantly a KISS crowd.
On.y disappointment was the lack of movement or action by the spider. I was really wanting to see what it would do love.

Overall, my 16th KISS concet was outstanding.

First off, I am a huge KISS fan. My first KISS concert was in 1977 at the Cow Palace in SF. Love Gun Tour. Cheap Trick opened for KISS. The '77 show was an incredible concert! Vintage KISS. Last night was my 16th live KISS concert. Shocked that they could only manage to play 14 songs. As someone else mentioned they did not have the 'spider' active for this show, no movement as in previous shows on the tour. I expected much more for a KISS 40th anniversary tour. You would think for the KISS 40 year anniversary tour they wouldn't even need opening bands. Two sets of KISS with an intermission and KISS covering the full forty years of their music would have been a memorable tour. If Rush can do it for their fans then KISS should for theirs. I sat center stage second row for the 'Alive 35' tour at Arco Arena. That show totally blew away this show. More energy, more songs. The Wheatland show had it's moments. Deuce, Black Diamond, Shout it out Loud, Hotter Than Hell, War Machine were played well. They also did Cold Gin which wasn't previously played on this tour. I sat second row for this show. You could tell that this was a back to back concert night for the band. Paul's voice was shot by the time they got to Detroit Rock City. I had my concerns about this show knowing that KISS was playing the night before in Concord. It's apparent that it isn't about the fans as much as it is about making the $. Overall, it was still a KISS concert and had a good time. Rating: two out of five stars.

Read the reviews :lol: KISS needed a band to come on board to sell tickets, Def Lep have been reduced to a band that's put on other band's tours to help sell tickets for half the money. Not top dog anymore. :lol:

KISS cranks it up with pyrotechnics
By Chris Macias
cmacias@sacbee.com
Published: Friday, Jul. 4, 2014 - 6:05 am

The Sacramento area got an early taste of Independence Day on Thursday night at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre near Marysville, where KISS cranked through tunes from its 40-year career and detonated enough pyrotechnic booms to rival the fireworks following a Sacramento River Cats game.

Sparks poured down on the stage, and exploding flash pots rattled eardrums during the final chords of “Rock and Roll All Nite.” Smoke bombs, fire — and a bit of fire-breathing as well from Gene Simmons — are, after all, just as important to the KISS concert experience as Les Paul guitars and bass solos that double as an excuse to spit stage blood.

But this kind of bombastic concert experience, coupled with tunes that are tailor-made for throaty sing-a-longs and en masse fist-pumping, have made KISS one of rock ’n’ roll’s most successful bands. This year finds the group celebrating the 40th anniversary of its self-titled debut, plus an April induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Band co-founder Paul Stanley, 62, has described its current tour as a victory lap after four decades in rock ’n’ roll. But its set on Thursday night was closer to a 100-yard dash.

KISS whipped through 14 songs, plus that blood gurgling bass solo from Simmons, in 75 minutes. That was nearly identical to the set length of co-headliner Def Leppard, and about eight songs shorter than a typical show on KISS’ “Alive 35” tour in 2009.

This 40-year anniversary would’ve been a perfect time to mine the deeper cuts and less-played tunes from the band’s catalog, which numbers more than two dozen albums. While Thursday’s set included the rarely played “Hide Your Heart,” the bulk of the repertoire consisted of KISS standards (“Love Gun,” “Black Diamond,” “Deuce”).

That’s not to say KISS was phoning it in from the stage. Foot-stomper songs like “Cold Gin” and “Shout It Out Loud” were played with plenty of punch, and still registered as fun for anyone who likes their rock ‘n’ roll with a taste of stage make-up and moon boots. Original members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss might be long gone from the band, but guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer do an admirable job of keeping the vigor in KISS’ music and face-painted personas.

So, KISS deferred the chance for more extensive set time to have Def Leppard on the bill, which attracted more than 12,000 concertgoers on Thursday. Def Leppard was one of the biggest rock bands of the 1980s, via the multi-platinum albums “Pyromania” and “Hysteria,” and coupled with KISS made for a double whammy of arena rock.

You could practically smell the Aqua Net in the air as the big-haired days of 1980s’ rock flashed back during such tracks as “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Armageddon It.” These Def Leppard tunes and their mix of ear-friendly melodies with overdriven guitars still worked their magic with the crowd.

Unlike its elaborate in-the-round stage from the “Hysteria” days, Def Leppard was sans catwalks and pyrotechnics on Thursday, and had to stick to the front of the stage to allow room for Singer’s drum kit and other elements of KISS’ set design.

That’s to say, it was KISS’ night — and its stage. And by the end of the night, that stage had endured smoke, fire, fireworks and Stanley smashing his guitar during the finale of “Rock and Roll All Nite.” Fourth of July weekend had certainly kicked off with a bang.

We get it. You love Kiss' current opening act who start their show in the daylight. That's fine. Personally I am not a fan but to each their own.
