This will be my first show. Extremely excited. I was tempted to get close tickets on the floor. I opted to take some decent side seats ìnstead.

I work across from the Scotiabank Arena. Very surprised to see no crew busses out front this morning. By this time most band crews are here and working.

They showed up around 9:00. They played Montreal last night, so I guess after the load out they hit the road at about 3:00 AM.

For anybody thinking about going, they just released seats in the two side sections for $207. No discounts as of yet. Three seats in the front row if anyone has an extra $3300 burning a hole in their jeans.

Wait till you experience them coming down from the ceiling over your head! I was at the show last night in Montreal, had 7th row floor dead center and I can still feel the heat of the pyro on my face!!!!!

Also, I got my ticket at around 5:30 and they had discounted much more, and released more seats on the floor. Checking up a few hours before the show may save you money.

I was just about to respond to your original message LOL. No worries my friend, the view will be fantastic. I was dead center and the people that were on Tommy's side 20 rows back had incredible views. Hell his cherry picker will go right over your head, as will Paul when he goes out over the audience.

The design of this stage was really well thought out. Everyone has a great view. Before I bought my ticket on the floor, they offered me the section, right up the side of the stage (Tommy's side) but said it was partial obstruction, so I turned it down. When I checked that side of the stage from my seat last night, the whole stage was open, so even those people got an amazing view.

Gene and Paul spent a lot of time on each side of the stage interacting with the audience there, so those people had great seats.

You'll be floored I'm sure with your view, looking forward to your review. Enjoy man!!

When you review the show, can you at least use the proper terminology?

That is the Nikki Sixx NS6000 Cherry Picker.

I was hoping they'd have a merch booth outside the venue or at the real sports store. I've been to shows where they've done that before. Always nice to get stuff and bring it back to the room and not have to lug it around at the show.

About ~200 seats remaining for tonight’s show. Another concert, another great crowd. Let’s hear it for KISS Army Toronto!

Within 2 minutes of The Toronto show I said to myself “Nobody does a show like KISS” Unbelievable! Loved the concert. Tommy kicked ass! He was the highlight for me and the rest of the guys were in great form. Looked like they enjoyed themselves and Paul was very talkie!

Great show! The stage was great and the pyro was awesome. Lots of families with little kids with their faces painted thrilled by the experience. They were fun to watch!

As the previous poster mentioned, Paul was very talkative last night. He reminisced about the first Toronto KISS show in 1974 at Massey Hall. He also spoke about his stint as the Phantom at the Pantages Theatre, and how he got to know Toronto pretty well.

The only downside for me is I so wish Ace and Peter had been a part of it. I also wish Paul or Gene had mentioned them and acknowledged their contribution to original KISS. Paul mentioned that KISS were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and it would have been a perfect time to do so.

It was cool. Great production as far as stage and lighting/pyro. The sound was weird though. It didn't have that live oomph that concerts usually have, the drums did but the guitars were weirdly mixed. It also wasn't very loud, I could easily have a conversation without yelling. I was sitting lower bowl about not far from the stage.

I'm glad I went. Youtube videos do absolutely no justice to the production they put on.

Highs: The usual big pyro spots. Genes crane came within 10 feet of my seats.
Lows: Say Yeah was lifeless, Eric said KISS love Montreal during BD while in Toronto LOL.

6/10 for me.
