So he went on at 11pm AGAIN? So much for isolated incidents.

So at approximately what time did Ace play Love Gun? There are isolated reports that it was rather late.

Don't be mad. It's ok cuz it's Ace. It's just how he is. It's charming. It works for Axl Rose.

ACE has been doing 21 to 23 songs a night.... 2 hr sets, usually. KISS has been doing 16 song, 90 minute sets night after night after night, this year... so when ACE "trims" a set, by even up to 5 songs... it's still likely to match or be longer than what KISS has been doing during ALL of 2014.
Even in Vegas, w/o Def Leppard or travel times to blame.
Just sayin'.

This was the setlist


Rip It Out
Gimme a Feelin'
Toys
Parasite
(KISS song)
Snowblind
Love Gun
(KISS song)
Breakout
Space Invader
King of the Night Time World
(KISS song)
Strutter
(KISS song)
Change
Bass Solo
Strange Ways
(KISS song)
Rock Soldiers
New York Groove
(Hello cover)
Shock Me
(KISS song)
Ace Frehley Guitar Solo
2 Young 2 Die

Its a good set and the Kiss gems were great. It would be nice if Kiss dipped deep into their own catalog once in a while.

There really aren't any KISS gems here - outside of Strange Ways, Rocket Ride, and Ace's solo album - that KISS hasn't played. Don't get me wrong, I like this setlist, but I don't think Ace is really breaking any new ground here. How does this setlist get accolades when the KISS one this past year is knocked. I can get praising 23 songs vs. 16 songs (even though KISS actually puts a presentation into their show) but this song selection isn't rave worthy to me. I'd rather hear Getaway than Love Gun. Dark Light, Talk to Me, Torpedo Girl, or even Insane more than King of the Nighttime World.
