I'll be there with my g/f, brother and 11 year old nephew. Listen out for someone moaning about the reduced number of octagons :wink:

It’s more likely to be a complaint about dead cells on the octagons. :D

I heard somewhere that some of the pixels may have gotten damaged in that weather in Iffezheim. I think someone said it on Facebook. Maybe that is why they're out?

Oddly, it was only this set-up where the glitch showed itself. Every other configuration was fine.

The o2 is a big, big place. Depending on the configuration they could be packing in 15,000+ there tonight.

Could be. From your mouth to God’s ears.

I expect <15,000 on the boxscore.

Saw Queen + Paul Rodgers there. I had great seats but the uppers seem extremely straight in the air. Very steep.

Reminds me of the final game in Blood Of Heroes (1989).

Just back from the show. The band was great and the sound in O2 arena was awesome. Me and my 20 year old daughter and 18 year old son were going. We had a fun evening and they enjoyed it. We had standing tickets on the floor and came before Garibaldi started so we were fairly close to the stage. We were a bit unlucky though. First with a guy just in front of my son who decided to take a pee on the floor in the middle of the crowd 5 minutes before KISS came on. We tried to move a bit. Later, two guys started a fight just beside us. And between Cold Gin and Love Gun there were 6-7 people starting kind of a mosh pit just behind us. My daughter fell on the floor.

Anyway we had a great night. I think God Of Thunder and Deuce were highlights. My kids said they also liked God Of Thunder. And Erics drum solo, Say Yeah, Black Diamond and Crazy Crazy Nights. My son said he missed I Want You.

This was my 9th KISS show and maybe my last if they don't return to Europe. I'm happy to have spent it with my kids despite the little distractions.

So that was my last KISS show last night and what a lot of fun it was. First saw them way back in 1980 and last night was gig 32, I never thought I would still be seeing them all this time later, I was only 14 when I first saw them, where life gone? Anyway the audience were great last night, even though I'm a Londoner we can sometimes be quite high and mighty about being entertained but last night was certainly the rowdiest KISS crowd I'd ever been in at a London show.

I went with my wife and her best friend, who had never seen them before and only knew a handful of songs, she loved it and couldn't quite believe Gene and Paul's ages, my son and his girlfriend also went and they loved it, he's into The Foo Fighters and Lamb Of God but thought KISS were great fun, he had already seen them back in 1997 at Finsbury Park when he was only 6. One thing that was great last night was the young people at the show, it wasn't all balding 50 somethings, lots of kids and lots of smiles.

Paul still commands that stage and Gene was fun to watch last night, would love it if Ace and Pete were still here but they're not and Eric and Tommy are fine it's the best it's going to get at this stage in the game. I welled up once during I Was Made For Lovin' You and had massive goosebumps at the start and the finale. I just wanna say thanks to KISS for being the soundtrack to my life, they're my fucking band and I will miss them dearly.

Great to hear you had a great night with your kids, despite the unfortunate incidents. Nothing beats making memories with family and I bet you all will treasure those you made last night. Thanks for sharing with those of us that cannot make the shows.

New one to the board! :D I flew in from Norway for the London gig. The show was amazing, crowd was superb, you Brits know how to party at gigs! Massive pyro and effects biggest I have seen KISS do, the sound at the O2 was very good, one of the best venues in the world for sure. Highlights for me was Deuce, God of Thunder (the flames with each drum stroke was perfect), Black Diamond, Gene´s wild bass solo, Paul flying over the audience and really ruling the stage and engaging as always to fans everywhere, Tommy´s guitar fireworks during the solo, and Eric was impressive.

I also had the meet and greet which was my first m&g with KISS after being a member of the KISS army for so many years I decided to finally get one! Also knowing this is their last tour and not knowing if I get to see them again live, I had to get a m&g. A lot of people turned up and I went through the photos over 140 people or so in line for meet and greet :shock: Because of the amount of people and the m&g being delayed so much, we only got a little time for the photo. Paul Stanley said a few nice comments to me though, they were all very friendly and nice :) Also bumped into Lenny Kravitz while waiting and got a selfie with him haha. He is a big KISS fan. I hope this won´t be my last KISS show, I really hope to catch the last concert, wherever that will be, I assume New York? Hoping to attend the last show for sure.

New to the board. I was attended the gig on Thursday and loved it. Never seen the band before despite being a long time fan.
Support act although talented was a bit boring. Long story but I had abscess on on tooth and felt like crap due to the antibiotics so watching a guy paint didn't distract me enough from feeling sick.
When KISS came on I was blown away. It was everything I hoped for. Thought they played excellently and me and the wife (despite her knowing about 3 songs) loved it.
