A little drama - Paul stopped "Do You Love Me" due to something up front. Paul said "let's get this out of the way, so the show can go on...you two guys, shut up."

One of the guys just got removed.

I actually didn't arrive until Thursday, so I missed the first show. I would place this one similar to last Friday's show with a preference to tonight's setlist, but I did love the descending entrance with Tommy and Gene on Friday.

The other three shows, I was second row center or on Gene's side. Tonight and tomorrow are first row center balcony with my girlfriend who came for just these two shows. Wednesday night I will be front row center for the first time at a KISS show. :)

I love the balcony perspective, but the energy on the floor is awesome, of course...as you guys can attest.

I am a bit underwhelmed, but I only committed myself to 1 show at the opening of ticket sales so that suggests that I was prepared to not be shocked. I figured I'd buy more tickets if the initial shows suggested it would be worth it. I am looking forward to the show for what it is and frankly.... it's been 22 years since I last experienced Creature's of the Night in person and I'm stoked to see it in Vegas. I definitely hoped for something more grand following the footsteps of Def Leppard, but without any promoting of a theme that suggested they would.. I didn't get my heart set on it. It's also been 22 years since I last saw KISS with lasers incorporated into the nightly stage show.

I'm a little disappointed in the number of songs and a couple of song choices. This seems like a great opportunity to let Tommy & Eric step up and sing a little more. With that being said, I still wish I could spend a few weeks in Vegas taking in numerous shows.

The venue must have complained, because the setlist is exactly the same save for the dropping of Black Diamond.

My mistake, guys - I was too busy recording the video for BD and forgot to add it. Kind of ironic considering my poster name. :) They definitely played it though - sorry for the confusion.

LOVED the show. Complain all you want about only 16 songs, but KISS Alive! only has 16, Alive II has 15 (live) and Alive III has 15 (16 if you count Tale It Off as a bonus track). Nothing wrong with the set list in my book.

i was amazed at the way the show was kind of compacted and set loose inside the venue. Like stuffing a suitcase and flicking the latch as the contents explode. The lasers were also a great touch. They've used lasers before, but I can't recall to that extent. here were a couple miscued explosions at the end, but overall the pyro was great, too.

Yes, the show was stopped during Do You Love Me. Not sure exactly why, but someone was, indeed, removed from the venue.

Paul's voice sounded fine to me. Best I've heard him in a long time. The past tour he was also on an upswing, and I saw it twice.

I was not happy with the constant movement of the scaffold that Paul used to play on after he flew. The stagehands seemed to move it up and down at their whim, and at times it obstructed my view of the stage. It definitely obstructed my view of Gene on his platform. That was a bit irritating.

Also strange, but the crowd in the balcony sat the entire time. No one got up.

It was my first time seeing performances of Creatures Of The Night and Tears Are Falling. Both excellent additions to the set list.

I cannot complain. The show was worth every penny.

Ooooh.... I just saw the video on You Tube... Paul's voice sounds rough.
