An AMAZING gig! I enjoyed every single second of it! Also, Raveneye got (at least) one more fan from Finland.

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:
His scammer therapist is proof of it too.

Making Helsinki stage photo before the concert. My friend was a local roadie there and he took some pics and got Gene`s pick.

I think you got the pick of the merch there too - those items actually aren't bad. I like the key ring-thing!

KISS in the Finnish newspaper Ilta Sanomat: "Hit warranty"
"KISS is a band that does not disappoint its fans who love songs from old mask times, the setlist was full of them. KISS knows how to treat their audience and Paul spoke even Finnish. His voice was not in the best shape, high notes caused problems. But the audience did not care about it."

A short video clip from Meet And Greet photo session which was like 30 minutes before the gig. There was like 60 people, about 40 people who had bought M&G package and about 20 from Radio City`s competition winners or something...

My seventh Kiss concert since 1988 and absolutely the best. Paul voice is gone but that did not bother me. The band was very tight and they put their best show. They seemed to be enjoying performing. My earlier concerts were professional but this time there was something extra. Also for the first time for me the first song in the show (this time Deuce) sounded great. In my earlier concerts they have had mixing issues and the songs have gotten better after first two or three songs. It is a shame that Paul voice is gone, but it was so low in the mix that I did not pay attention to it. Tommy played great and Eric was awesome. Paul is a FRONTMAN. And Geno was Geno at his best.

IWMFLY as a closer was not the best choice. Detroit Rock City would have been better. But it was very refreshing to see RARAN earlier.

I thought IWMFLY being the last song was an error, but they really did it? That's... odd. I just watched a video and they just end the song without any "goodbyes".

You're right, I am confused, of course it's Fawlty Towers. I think I mixed it up with the episode where Elaine was editing the book of the Finnish author, Rava.

A little media scandal happened at meet and greet photo session in Helsinki: At KISS meet and greet photo session Paul Stanley grabbed a radio journalist there from some certain "places" and also he bent over to look her tits from the neckline and the producer of Radio City, who was also there, does not accept that kind of behaviour.

"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!
I hope HYH maker it onto the Euro setlist.
