Only the 4th time KISS have ever played Huntington, same building different name. First time in West Virginia since 2000, first appearance in Huntington since 1988. I skipped the area Dayton show and several area Saturday shows to catch the tour finale. Other than the now repurposed Ohio Center Battelle Hall, this will be the smallest venue I've ever seen KISS into. After the last two tours I left kinda "meh" but I'm looking forward to Saturday. We're making a full excursion out of it.

Just entered the "NOT MANY LEFT" category. By the looks of the map that'll soon be changed to "NOT ANY LEFT". :D

I know a few people who are driving up from Lexington tonight, wish I was one of them.

Am going to have them get me a t-shirt, so there is that I guess.

KISS broke all attendance records and brought in the most revenue in the history of the venue tonight! It felt great to see them indoors after so many years. I was 4th row center and it was awesome! They were having fun and enjoying themselves on stage.

Democrat Mayor Stephen T. Williams came out and announced it and declared 09/10 "KISS Day."

It really was a magical experience. As memorable as my first show was, this one takes the cake. Seeing KISS indoors in a smaller setting as opposed to the shed tours really makes it a "larger than life" experience. Last nights crowd was a crowd that was excited to see KISS, it's an event that doesn't happen often and they were there to have a good time. I was located right next to Paul's rotating stage which was an amazing thing to see, plus I got to spend a song or two near the front row snapping some pictures and just taking it all in. Incredible. So happy to say "I WAS THERE" on the 2016 Freedom To Rock tour.

there is a story about the sold-out crowd and all that on wsaz.com and you could also look up The Herald Dispatch Newspaper which is the newspaper in Huntington West Virginia

I have to agree with lovegun07 . It was a great experience seeing them indoors. It wasnt a "casual fan" crowd. The people screamed the whole time from start to finish. Sounded like the Alive 2 album crowd noise. You can hear it in all the videos online. It was a magical night. The people knew it, KISS knew it. Im so glad I WAS THERE!
