They are a fucking embarrassment at this point. Anyone who says otherwise is living in denial.

Or maybe they just disagree with you.
That seems more likely.
It's really ok to say your favorite band can't cut it anymore. Gene and Paul won't show up at your door and take away your Kiss Army membership card :roll:

Tell you what: As soon as I actually feel that way, I'll say so.

Cool. Enjoy that passive-aggressive negativity, and those impoverished attempts at mind-reading.

Yet there are people who go to their concerts and have a great time. You could argue that anyone who says otherwise about that statement is in denial too.

Some people can't get by Paul's voice and others enjoy themselves in spite of his voice. Why is that so hard to understand? I don't think I would enjoy seeing Kiss at this point, but there are plenty who would. I don't begrudge them for wanting to see Kiss nor do I begrudge Gene and Paul for going on tour.

It's really none of your concern. People at the show had a great time. You should try it sometime.

Thank you! There's still people who seem to be in balance on this board. A relief!

What's happening around 13:40 during Lick It Up? Looks like Paul's shouting at Gene to hurry up and get back on stage.

Thanks brother. I'm putting the finishing touches on my latest entry. That picture you just added is quite helpful. It bolsters my due diligence by showing me point blank which sections were definitely in play. I was just about to post my report, but I want to double check it with this pic when I get home. I was questioning where some of the seating started on the sides of the venue but not anymore. :D

Thanks again.

So here's the pic of the audience in 2017 (first pic) and 2008 (second). I would say that IF 15,000 tickets were put on sale, the attandance was easily 14K+
All the empty seats make up less that 1000, while the floor was super-crowded.
