I'll be there! I'm really looking forward to the show.

I just hope they play King Of The Night Time World and Hotter Than Hell... (or KOTNTW and Firehouse).

Loved seeing KISS here in 2012! One of my favorite venues where I've seen them. If I only lived in California, I'd be there again -- enjoy everyone!!

For the first time since the 79 tour I will not be going. I was very disappointed with The Tour in 2012, I just don't see a big enough difference from then to now to go. Before all of you start to bash, I did see them at San Manuel that was a great show.

I just hope that they have enough room for full use of the Spider (unlike the other night). The Spider is part of the reason why I decided to go this time.

Heading over from Los Angeles. Hoping there are some cheap seat upgrades. I have lawn tickets at the moment. It should be a fun time regardless!

Sad that KOTNW seems to be permanently gone. I thought it was great opener. I'd love to see C16 replaced as well.

Still, sounds like a great time.

Wonder what the reasoning was behind taking out
KOTNW.....and ( for me ) of ALL the songs to replace it
with PC is the worst choice.

Creatures or ISYL would be great choices but KOTNW
worked soo I dont get the change.

There was a huge crowd for the show last night, and the show itself was excellent - better than I expected.

I agree with this... I LOVE KOTNW as an opener. I actually wish they would get rid of Psycho Circus althogether and work Makin' Love back into the set.

I was there... lots of fun...

missed the openers....

line to get in was a bitch

Def Leppard was awesome ! LOTS of fan participation they rocked it.

KISS ... GREAT ... Pauls voice was on point. Love Gun was better than when they where on tour with Motley.

Paul did the intro to Black Diamond from the Love Gun Mini Stage.

Left during the middle or RARAN... its a hassle getting out of there after everything is over.

Bootleggers $20 a shirt... 2 for $30 nice shirt... bought it lol. Better than the $45 for an "official shirt"

This was shot about 20 feet down and 60 feet to the left of us. Our view wasn't quite this good, but it wasn't that far off...
