Ahh yeah I feel sorry for him. He seems to be a real fan with his KISS hat. Most of those guys are probably just autograph dealers.

Thanks for the heads up again. The language barrier was tripping me up a bit. It seems on Ticketmaster Finland the tickets were broken up into regular, VIP, and platinum. I finally found the general populous seats. The upper tier is all that has availability and by looking at the pics below you can see some sections are better sold than others. With a day to go there's roughly 1,265 seats left. Maybe with a solid walk up the Army can sell this one out. Either way we're looking at 10,000 plus strong.

A cool video of the band checking out the statues. Gene speaks some Finnish. ("Hyvä, hyvä" & "...And we'll begin the show with the 'yksi, kaksi, kolme'" :lol: :lol: )

The floor area was sold out well in advance at this show, when the whole floor area is undivided people move forward. I'd say another 9 or 10K crowd

Ending the show with "I Was Made For Lovin' You"... WILD!

"Hide Your Heart" apparently also on the set list, but not performed.

Thanks Alain - and catch his very late night comments about the show on ep.122 of the KissFAQ Podcast!

What an amazing show last night and arena was almost sold out, I am sure over 11 000 people were there, good Finland! At first we witnessed a curtain failure and it took like 15 minutes until they fixed it and then the show was ready to start. Paul is still the greatest frontman, he did an amazing job on stage, although his voice is gone. The whole band played very tight and the sound was very good. I liked Gene`s bass solo part and he was a damn good as usually. The pyros and screens worked very well and the crowd got what they deserved. Thanks KISS!

Paul interview: http://areena.yle.fi/1-4132223#autoplay=true" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The usual "my life is inspirational" stuff. 8) He says that he's here to tell you that you can become a president, a doctor etc. if you're willing to work hard, and he's the proof of that. Aren't the presidents and doctors a proof of that too? :scratch:
