I'll be there. The enjoyment for me this time will be my 7 year old getting to attend his first KISS show. This is probably the only time he'll get to see them live so I'm excited to kinda see it through his eyes. Just wish it was in an actual arena this time.

Coincidentally, I was 7 when my dad took me to my first KISS show: Early '84, Lick It Up tour....might have gotten my first contact high at that show, lol. Between the joints being passed around me and Paul's then-new dirty stage raps, something tells me my boy's going to have a much tamer experience!

Sure, or X-Ray Eyes. Or even Naked City, which I love. Hell, play anything. Play Mary Had a Little Lamb and Fucked It for Christ's sake. Just stop the jibber jabbering and jaw jacking.

Deuce sounds great in that clip, apart from a lyric flub Gene nails the vocals and the band actually sound energised and tight.

Then Shout It Out Loud follows and Paul is just unbearable to listen to. It's beyond depressing what happened to his voice.

The stage is smaller because it was a festival.

My friend, who i have known for about 40 years and is a KISS fan, went to the show and said it wasn't very good. He said and I quote "Paul sounded like an aging Jewish grandmother like he was exceptionally hoarse and getting over a bad cold. His voice is cracking and just was not anywhere near up to par. There's also a lot spacing and time wasted between songs" That being said, he did say "Still a hell of a better show than U2. U2 just stood around Paul still gave it his all."

My report from the show. Some people laughed at the anticipated small state fair type show, I predicted a huge crowd and that came true. early estimates state it may have been a festival record of approximately 40,000 there on Saturday. Certainly the largest crowd I've ever seen there. The band was in fine musical form and put on the typical show for us die-hards. Yes, Paul's voice is shot, but thats not what I heard on the way out and on social media. All I've heard are positive comments for a bunch of older guys to put on such a great show. And that's with no flying apparatus. The mass majority also liked the patriotism of the pledge and honoring the wounded warrior. That was also welcomed down here in Saints land after all that controversy the past couple weeks. Thanks to KISS for entertaining the greater New Orleans area.

Bono has become shockingly less physically active on The Joshua Tree tour. Before, I would have said U2 were hands down one of the best live acts in the world with their energy and passion. Now I get bored watching their YouTube videos lately. Having said that, Bono's voice is still near pristine and still in great shape. The same cannot be said for Paul. I didn't think it was possible for him to sound worse, but these last few shows he has sounded unbearable. It really is time to call it quits.
