What's confusing? LHS is where the stage is being erected. RHS is where the audience will be.

Wouldn't the stage be on the tighter end of the stadium? Unless perspective is messing with the dimensions there.

I'm surprised he was allowed to share that....

Looks like they're doing something with a lift again. The smaller screens hanging overhead are new, probably looks cool if you're on the floor near the stage.

It's hard to see what's happening on stage. The two big KISS logos on either side look like they're steps.

At Olympic Stadium in Moscow they obviously cut the venue in half lengthwise, not the usual end stage configuration that we're accustomed to. To each their own. It makes a world more of sense now when looking at the seating map. Now when you look at it you can clearly see the whole venue...just cut in half the other way.

I guess those screens aren't steps after all. I want to see it in HD but so far the stage doesn't look that different from the Vegas iteration.

This is the most baffling thing. He's putting his terrible voice on display there. Why? Is his ego that large? I would feel embarrassed and tired if I had to put myself out there like that.

I'm dreading Crazy Crazy Nights....

This is beyond nostalgia, he's gambling each and every time he performs with his voice and loses each time. BUT, people still pay to see them... where do you draw the line at integrity??? 1977 apparently. This is why I wont go see them, this is just my personal view, I get it that many, many people still want to. Just because the Kiss logo is out there doesn't mean I have to lap everything up. Maybe when I was 14 yes, not now....

Still, he's not sounding as bad as he did in 2013. So when I see them on saturday, at least that's a positive. Plus, this stage is cooler too. Boris the Spider was great but this stage, as a whole, is better.

For the first night, he sounds awful. Doesn't bode well. Maybe you can say if it sounds better in situ... would be interesting to know. Funny, I don't like these Vegas type stages. They all look the same as the last.... Much prefer the Spider, had more character and was propbably the best design yet, in my opinion.

Cool to see Kiss Performing, the time difference is weird Kiss live before 1pm. And for the ones judging about Paul's voice.

Yes, we get it that his voice isn't what it was back in 1975. Its 42 years later for goodness sake and to judge by a distorted facebook live cellphone view is just super bias.

Don't be so naive ffs. The days are well gone where you have to just accept whats up there in front of you without question. Even G and P do it so don't feel victimised. We are all allowed our say... that's democracy... I for one can be as outspoken as the band can be.... doesn't mean that overall I'm no longer a fan...I will be for life. Doesn't mean I don't have an opinion.

They can't use that setlist in Moscow because they played it at a casino in Laughlin once? :lol:
