Should be about 5 songs to go, so since the set so far is pretty much the same as Vegas sans "Tears Are Falling" should be interesting if "Samurai Son" gets its debut next...

Apparently, they soundchecked with that tune. How often to KISS play songs they soundcheck I wonder?

Not enough. They did a few sound checks with "Say Yeah," before it got into the set in 2009, but it may not have been rehearsed prior. I'd be surprised if they didn't perform it. It's still shaping up to be a good set.

While at it, why not change the name of the band too? They've had that for 42 years already as well!

Can't believe these kind of complaints about KISS doing a KISS show. If they would leave just one gimmick out of the show, the same people will be complaining about it. Damned if they do, damned if they don't. But the truth of the matter is that KISS don't care about the naysayers. They do what they do and rightfully couldn't give a flying f*** about the opinion of the keyboard warriors telling us that everything was better in the 70s when they were 6 years old. They're here for those who want to have a good time with them now, and there are plenty of us here.

Let's get in the "ask for a refund" canned response too :)

Seriously, KISS debuted a new song live tonight. Not everyone saw the band last year or in Vegas, so it's a decent hybrid of the two sets. Wouldn't mind a picture of the set list if anyone got a snap - would be interesting to know if everything planned was performed. Regardless, going to Japan to see KISS is a dream, and remains one.

I like it. Quite a lot, with only a couple exceptions.

The lighting rig shouldn't intrude in front of the back screen. The Spider lighting rig would look SPECTACULAR hanging over this stage.

The ceiling screens would look better as 1 arced line, flipped 90 degrees and upright. Size the graphics to fit on the screen. You should be able to see the entire logo, it shouldn't over extend the screen.

Get rid of that herky jerky zoomed in logo animation, it's annoying. Also get rid of the DRC and War Machine animations, they're so old they fart dust. Change it up with new graphics, something that doesn't look antiquated.

I don't really care about the ceiling screens, the way they're set up something about them doesn't seem perfected quite yet.

Yeah, I thought that. At first I presumed it was a standing area that they simply filled closer to showtime, but I'm not so sure.
