Same set list as previous shows.

During DRC Tommys guitar was playing up. It was during the lead break before the final verse that the problem/s was fixed.

During Black Diamond, Paul swapped guitars during the song, but I don't know if he had broken a string or some other issue.

I see empty seats on the top. Also, is this not the same photo being used over and over? :mrgreen:

I see the same brother. Even so, this is a big place. It's in the same neighborhood of Madison Square Garden and places like the United Center in Chicago...an NHL/NBA full size arena. Even not quite full I'd say it still outdraws the rest on this jaunt down under. I'm hoping for actual boxscores. They're usually readily available in this region. Time will tell.

Predictable, boring, safe, musically weak. The worst I've seen them.

We've got them here in Auckland next Friday night...my two kids (15 and 20) are really looking forward to it...as too am I. Haven't seen them since 2009. Everyone's having a great time which is what it's all about.

Thats my local arena. seen many shows there including the Farewell tour.

Some empty seats up top but those are only the nosebleeds. Looks to be close to a full house i think at least 85% or 90% sold. Thats a good result for the band.

I appreciate the input PC. It's always great to hear from people from the area that know what they're talking about.

It's funny. If you take your "85% or 90% sold" and average that to the 15,000 end stage it was probably set up in...that comes to the 13,000 I'm going with over on my 2015 Tour thread. That makes me feel that much stronger about that figure. I would love to get my hands on some boxscores. I know my attendances are right there but I want to see the average ticket prices. It seems to me KISS is making an absolute killing on this leg of the tour.
