It’s nice to see Def Leppard opening for KISS again.

That was a great combo.

A nice gig, except they kept saying "Helsinki", although we were in Hyvinkää. 8)

Something went wrong during the beginning of DRC. Some went to the verse while others kept playing the intro. So Paul sang the whole song live and sounded pretty good to me.

Apart from those obvious pre-recorded vocals it was a great experience.

Totally agree. They're my two favorite bands and I was so happy to see them together in 2014 :mrgreen:

Other than the shortened KISS set it’s always great seeing Def Leppard.

Oh, and there was also a "fun section". Paul and Tommy traded some licks high on the neck and then there was a bit of loose jamming, which went into the Joe Walsh riff they sometimes play. Gene was going crazy on the bass. It was a lot of fun. Finally Gene sang, I think it was"ooooooh yeaaaaah" in a hilarious, "soulful" way and then they played a bluesy chordal ending. After the jam bit Paul said something like "we've got balls", so I guess that isn't a regular part of the show?

Seems that press coverage of KISS visit was pretty lame.
Previously, it has been rather extensive before-and after the show. Now, after the show. Nothing. zero.

Biggest audience Kiss has ever had in Finland. 27.000!

Great gig! DRC was a mess, and the jamming part was mood killer but overall it was awesome show...way better than last time they were in Finland (kissworld tour).

As you may now know there is lots of press coverage and the content of it varies as usual.

I really dig the jamming part. Best and most interesting I've heard from Kiss for a long time. Tight, good playing, but quite a regular show. Too regular I have to say. Nothing special. I was a little bit dissaponted that we didn't experience that full scale US style indoor show. But maybe next year? Wind did blow some of the sound away. There were also lots of dust and sand in the air too becouse of the wind. All in all? I would say 7 points! And that is a lot in my scale. Perhaps 7 minus would do better.
